Stunning that. Simple, subtle looks, but I bet it's incredibly nimble with its low weight. I'd stick a set of SID's on and enjoy some classic xc on it. Shame you're selling it.

Thanks for the kind words guys :)

As to why I'm selling it? Well, truth to be told, I need the funds for another project...

Will probably regret it though... :(
