£700 off of a fellow forum member. Very impressed with the build of the frame, and the overall bike is so light.
Condition much better than I anticipated - hard to explain but in the photos only what i can describe as "carbon flakes" (for lack of the proper word) under the lacquer bounce light all over the place and make it look scratched/scuffed - in reality its all good. (not sure if this is normal?)
Spec is as follows:
18" carbon 456 frame
Rockshox revelation RLT 140mm
Avid elixir R brakes
Front wheel: Mavic XM719 on hope pro 2s
Rear wheel: Mavic XC717 on hope pro 2s
Fire XC Pro's 2.1 all round.
XT triple crankset
XT front mech
SLX rear mech
SLX rear shifter
SRAM X9 front shifter
SRAM PG990 cassette (with aluminium red spider)
eXotic carbon seatpost
eXotic 60mm stem and 700mm wide handlebars
Superstar lockon grips
Charge spoon saddle
You've picked up a pretty top bargain there. Great spec, looks good, ready to ride - cant ask for more. And whilst you've just shelled out £700 before Christmas, I'm sure the sales over the festive period can tempt you in to putting your stamp on it for a few quid
Is there much frame protection on it? What did you decide to do to protect the chainstay?
