No name suspension frame with some decent kit. I was only after the forks and rear shock when I saw the Chris king and Thomson bits :)

Yeah, i was thinking about this, hopefully everything is not stuck.

I thought it looked like a AMP rear, mongoose maybe?

Did the wedge come with the stem? and the top cover for the headset? as they made me think twice about going for it.

True it might just be a bag of bits but I was looking to pay half of that for just a Thomson stem or the Float rear shock....

Looks like the Thomson seat post clamp too

Ah brilliant thanks, seems they get some good write ups - good for XC and pedal well, if a bit heavy at 3kg

So finally found which neighbour was custodian of the parcel and collected it..

BB threads and seatpost look fine, front mech is XT which wasn’t clear in the ad. The Chris King upper race is notchy and has some white marks on the headset cup. Rear Shock looks mint and the fronts operate smoothly (manitou elite?). Oddly it came with a 105 rear mech.
All in all a nice frame but I doubt I’ll use the frame, still it’s a great looker for the wall :)
And a good price too

Er.. If you're not planning on using the frame, any chance you could PM some details on it if you're interested in moving it on?

Cheers!

Worth following the Chris King service guidelines for the headset, basically flush and re-grease. Details are on their website.
