44mm headtube, QR rear. ‘LT’ meaning ‘long travel’. New ZS44 headset installed, (for straight steerer). Could swap bottom cup for a Cane Creek 10 external lower cup (for tapered steerer).
Review of full bike here: http://singletrackworld.com/2014/09/gen ... 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
£160 posted (Currently under offer for a day or two but show firm interest and you'll be 2nd in line)

GT Tequesta cromoly MTB frameset, 16" C-C, 18" C-T.

Tange Prestige/Infinity MTB tubing I believe.
Previous owner sanded GT logos off but 'purple haze' paintjob still mostly intact. Inc threaded fork, seatpost and matching stem. Internal cable routing in top tube threads through easily. Rear U-brake included. Cool pub bike. Can print dig out a retro front canti if you wanted to go down that route too.
£28 posted. (Under offer for a day or two but show firm interest and you'll be 2nd in line)

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

https://www.flickr.com/photos/147725841 ... 1173252411

It’s one of these: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RSP-RALEIGH- ... 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.
£60 posted.


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

(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.
£88 now £82 posted.


Shimano SLX hydro disc brakes M665 (F+R). VGC.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/147725841 ... 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 105 5800 road brakes (pair).

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.
£35 now £34 posted

Syncros seatpost. 30.9, 350mm long. Lightweight - only 224g.
Scratched up from a frame it slipped in.

SOLD - Superstar narrow wide chainring, 5 bolt, 110 BCD, 40t, unused. https://www.flickr.com/photos/147725841@N02/albums/72157663451361878
Great for a CX/gravel bike. I used a 38t one with a non-clutch road mech and never dropped a chain
£17 now £16 posted - SOLD

Nitto B135 Randonneur handlebars
£25 now £24 posted

Nitto Noodle handlebars. 420mm wide. 26mm clamp.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/147725841 ... 7231729819
Fitted and used for maybe 200 miles before a threadless conversion. (26mm clamp).
£22 posted.

Velo Orange quill adapter (1 inch threaded to 1 1/8 threadless).

https://www.flickr.com/photos/147725841 ... 8172068102

Some insertion marks. Used briefly. Couldn't get enough insertion in my small frame (butted fork steerer) so worth being aware of. I've had to cut quill stems down in the past to lower the height.... Should be fine in a 55cm or larger frame.

SOLD - Race Face Ride XC cranks, triple set up as 1x (which is how I think Race Face sell them).

Nearly new condition - off a bike I've just purchased s/h from here and am swapping a few bits out.
Only swapping out as I prefer 170mm otherwise would keep as I like the idea of not always having Shimano everything.
£47 posted cranks only, £55 posted with 1x ring. Think I'm keeping the bashguard but can supply shorter chainring bolts.
Photos will be taken at some point, or will text some if you email me. - SOLD

SOLD - Fox Float RL forks, 26", 150mm travel. 15mm axle included, straight 1 1/8 steerer.
Black. Approx 20cm of steerer (can check).
Very good condition. Work fine as far as I can tell. Not a squishy fork aficionado but the relevant adjustment knobs work, stanchions are fine, thru axle threads fine.

B'twin 1.25" X 26" puncture protection tyres. Used for less than 100 miles Rare to find 26 tyres this narrow. Add some zip to your old MTB commuter.

SOLD - Avid shorty canti brake. Good condition.
£8 now £7 posted - SOLD

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 now £20 posted.

Skipping rope with (removable) weights in the handles. Never used. John Lewis I think! £5 or £2.50 included with any larger item.

Hi guys - please PM me if you have firm offers.

The Fox forks - These have sold on ebay in comparable condition for £120-160, so if I were eBaying them, I'd set a Buy it Now of £150, and would consider offers of £120 or above. Not trying to start a bidding war - just not an expert on the value of squishy forks so going off of market forces and hoping for some honest offers from someone who wants to keep a decent 26er going.

Beans - which brakes are you interested in. Tequesta still available thus far as have not had further replies from the originally interested 2 parties - will check again tomorrow but you're 3rd on the list - PM me to remind me though.
