slight rubbing on the non drive side crank transfer but no evidence of wear on the rims or pedals.
I thought it was shop standard but I recon it was bought up specced then never ridden.
It is all XT including XT push push shifters then cantis are ritchey logic as are the cranks.
The bars are syncros and the seatpost ritchey grips are odi attack too.
It has been ridden tonight I just put 10 miles on it :lol:

Cheers Steve it was on my doorstep and I agonised about it even after sending the guy a message asking to see it
I then thought no walk away how many bikes does a man need you fool
but the seller rang me and that was that I was like a rabbit in headlights
it is mint and when I rode it it felt cool yes like I should have been cruising the Miami boardwalk in the sun ( its the orange decals with the baby blue shadow that bring me on all Crockett and Tubbs ) :D

I was watching it, loitering with intent to purchase, as it looked totally mint, and I missed out on one a year or so back.

Very jealous, and yeah it looks unridden (just look at those decals on the RL cranks for gawds sake...) 8) :lol:
