Sales Pitch

So, the time has finally come. Redundancy, a new job, relocation to a rented house and two children have finally beat me into submission and I'm being forced to sell one of my bikes. I laboured a while over which it should be - the nimble little hardtail or the full-sus bruiser, but in the end it had to be the hardtail. The full-sus goes like stink at the trail centre and saves me when I over-reach my somewhat limited abilities!

So here it is. The spec is a follows:

  • Pipedream Sirius 18" frame - Purchased November 2006 in blue. The odd scratch, paint chip and wear from cable rub on the top tube. Frame protectors on the head tube and seat tube. Would suit anyone from about 5'8" - 6'0" (I'm 5'10")

  • Rockshox Reba 100mm Fork

  • Hope Headset

  • Hope BB

  • Rear wheel - Hope XC hub on Mavic 717 rim

  • Front wheel - Ovation pro hub on Mavic 221 rim

  • Continental Vertical Tyres

  • Shimano LX cranks

  • Sram PC951 chain

  • Shimano XT 9 Speed Cassette

  • Sram X-9 Rear mech

  • Sram X-7 Shifter

  • Shimano LX front mech

  • Shimano LX shifter

  • Easton EA-30 stem

  • Race Face Evolve XC Riser

  • Race Face Evolve XC Seat post

  • Avid Juicy 3 disk brakes with 160mm disks - these are nearly new

  • Charge Spoon Saddle - some damage to rear when I came off the back a few weeks ago (see photo)

  • Shimano 515 pedals - nearing the end of their life as the bearings are loose

Apart from the headset installation, I've built and maintained the bike myself and its in excellent condition, even if I do say so myself! I'm looking for £500 and ideally a local Plymouth sale as sending a bike through the post is just a complete faff (and fecking expensive). I could deliver to Exeter or Taunton (possibly Weston-Super-Mare) as I'm relocating to Somerset in October. If you are interested, drop me a mail!
