Genesis High Latitude LT (Reynolds 631) 16". New in box.

44mm headtube, QR rear. ‘LT’ meaning ‘long travel’. New ZS44 headset installed, (for straight steerer). Could swap bottom cup for a used Cane Creek 10 external lower cup (for tapered steerer).
Review of full bike here: ... titude-lt/
Is just a bit small for me compared to current bikes that I'm comfortable on.
Includes manual, stickers and official touch up paint
Really lovely frame - just wish it was a 17 or 18 inch and I’d be smashing it about for the winter!
It looks like a refined hooligan IMO

Genesis Day One SSCX (rim brake) frame. 54cm. (Reynolds 520)

From a bike I purchased online as an SS hack. However I acquired one in nicer condition a few weeks later. This has lived a bit - lots of paint damage. 2 very, very small, shallow dents - one on the top tube (almost certainly handlebar clash) and one on the side of the headtube (bike dropped?). Both of these were only visible once I’d picked/sanded a bit of paint around them to prep for a rattlecan respray and they don’t show in the pictures. Only noticeable by extreme scrutiny.
Also has had a stuck BB removed by a framebuilder friend with an oxy torch so BB area is… blackened.
It would make a cool pub bike as is or great base for a re-spray project.
I ride my nicer one and 2 colleagues have one and they are great ‘everything bikes’ for road-to-trail rides.
Might sell forks too but might have a use for them.
Adds a bit of spice to your regular mtb trails.

RSP 'stealth commuter' frameset. 700c New unused.

It’s one of these: ... Sw0e9UwjD4

New, couple small storage marks. Anti-rust coating inside. Fork takes disc brake, frame doesn't. As advertised on eBay by Nidderdale cycles - was intended to be my more niche version of a Cotic Roadrat. 52cm seat tube, 57cm eff. top tube so small - medium, or large if you wanted to run drops. Takes approx 45mm tyres. Inc. seatpost, seatclamp, can include headset and maybe a stem Great bombproof commuter, gravel machine, tourer.

Exotic carbon MTB forks, 1 1/8 straight alloy steerer. 465mm axle to crown. ... 0117433464

(29er 80- 100mm sus corrected, 650b 100-120 corrected). For quick release. New in box. Never fitted.
Just beautiful forks.
Wish I could justify using them but already know I’d prefer a shorter fork.
Can recommend using the Hope reducer if you wanted to run these in a tapered or 44mm headtube.

Cotic Roadrat forks.
The ones with the 'quirky' disc mount on the front of the right fork leg. Which actually makes sense when you think about it for axle retention. Not from an older recalled batch (I checked with Cotic). 25cm steerer. Canti or disc.

29er wheels. On One El guapo hubs on WTB st i23 rims. 15mm front, QR rear.

Only done 223 miles according to Strava. Some marks to freehub, some marks to rims, maybe from riding a hundred yards on the single flat I had on them. Bit of paint on rim bed seems to have come off with rim tape removed. Used tubes, but tubeless ready. Mate has used these rims for ages and they're v tough, tubeless works fine,
Seem true but will check in truing jig before posting. (I'm a shop mechanic so won't just tighten spokes for the sake of it. Adapters available for QR front. I used a nice Nukeproof QR adapter axle which I’m keeping.

Shimano SLX hydro disc brakes M665 (F+R). VGC. ... 7230942439
(When SLX was 9speed). Off a med/large flat bar commuter, so probably the correct length for a medium 29er, med-large 26 or 650b. Work fine. A few squeals when last used so maybe clean/new pads needed. Some very minor marks. £50 posted.

Shimano SLX right hand crank arm ... 0115990084

(Triple, no chainrings). Bought as a mix and match to run a budget 1x setup so don't know what happened to the left one. No dings/gouges. Some minor ankle rub wear to logo. IMO looks better than the XT double which has replaced it.
Might have some cheap (Deore or below) chainrings as well.

Shimano 105 5800 road brakes (pair). ... 9356775911

Gunmetal silver. Very good condition.
Very tiny mark to front brake where it contacted headset slightly. Don’t know if this will show on photos. Amazing brakes - work better than my older Ultegras. These newer generation ones have a bit more tyre clearance - I got 28mm tyres + narrow mudguards under these. I just need a slightly longer drop for the front brake on my new road frame as it’s a slightly longer than normal audax fork.

Clarks M2 hydro disc brakes. (F+R). ... 3451005318

Known for being great value. I reckon these are better looking than Shimanos. Worked fine for moderate trail riding. Only used briefly. Life left on pads. Hoses shortened to fit a medium 29er. One brake needs topping up as knocked the lever when shortening hoses. Uses standard Shimano pads/olives/barbs + mineral oil. £20 posted.

Deore cable v brake levers. Some use, storage marks. ... 0729067555

Good condition.

Brooks Green Silence running shoes. Lurid blue and yellow. Legendary shoes, no longer made, as worn by the legendary ultra runner Scott Jurek. UK 8. You'll probably only want these if you've had some before. Were a bit small for me. Insoles are missing.
£22 posted.

Skipping rope with (removable) weights in the handles. Never used. John Lewis I think! £5 posted.

You're welcome to them - am I allowed to include my email in the listing?

Have PMd you with my email address but if you can advise on including email in listing, would be great - Retrobike doesn't work very well on my phone - doesn't seem to let me log in, so being able to receive email would be helpful as would make it fair given some parts are also listed elsewhere.
