For sale is my 2012 Medium Canyon Torque FRX. This is a great DH bike that I've owned from new. Only selling due to it being a bit small for me and iv'e reluctantly decided that I should probably change to something that fits correctly. I'm a qualified bike mechanic, so the bike has been well looked after. The only damage is a dent on the downtube about the size of a 1p coin, which I have pictured. It has quite a few scratches, as is to be expected on a dh bike of this age, although these are only really noticeable up close because of the raw finish. There is a scratch on the right fork stanchion but this is up top between the two crowns, so isnt actually on a functional part of the fork. All of the bearings were replaced in the summer, and it has only been used a handful of times since, and the rear wheel and headset have brand new bearings for this sale. The bike will also be fitted with brand new gear cables for the sale. The Spec list is as follows: Bars- Spank 777 cut to 760 Stem- Spank direct mount Headset- Cane Creek sealed (brand new bearings) Fork- Rockshox Boxxer R2C2 (comes with both Medium and Hard springs, and has had a recent full service) Shock- Fox Van RC (ad new eyelets fitted a few rides ago) Brakes- Shimano Deore Shifter- Shimano Zee Mech- Shimano Zee Chain Device- MRP G2 Chain- KMC 10 speed Cassette- Shimano Ultegra 10 speed Front Wheel- DT Swiss EX 5.1D rim on Sun Ringle hub Rear Wheel- Superstar EX23 rim on Superstar Switch Evo hub (Brand new bearings) Cranks- Truvativ Hussefelt Saddle- OEM Specialized Seat Post- OEM specialized Grips- Specialized Tires- Schwalbe Muddy Marry This sale also includes a Sun Ringle Drift 2.1 spare rear wheel. I can also sell with a Marzocchi 66 ATA RC3 130mm-180mm for less money if wanted, so drop me a message if interested. I'm open to sensible offers as I'm looking for a quick sale.

As much as I agree with most people on that pinarello being really ugly, i think that that thing on the downtube with "just because" written under it is a bump stop for the fork. If it is then this is actually a pretty ingenious solution to a problem on a lot of larger framed xc race bikes where the bars and shifters smash into the top tube in a crash!

Shimano XT M8000 Drivetrain - Review
Surprised not to see any mention of the colossal price difference between this and even Srams most basic 1x11 drivetrain

This is my Large (18") Dartmoor Hornet hardcore hardtail frame. This is an extremely versatile frame, designed to hold both 650b and 26" wheels, and forks between 120mm and 160mm. I ran it with 26" wheels and 140mm fork, and used it as my all round bike for everything from DH to DJ and XC. This frame has a 135x12mm rear axle, tapered steerer, stealth dropper cable routing, and ISCG05 tabs, so it is up to date with modern standards! The frame has had a winter of use, and has no dents or dings, just cosmetic cable rub on the head tube, and a few chips as would be expected with any used frame. The frame will come with a seat clamp, and I could also find a seat post for it if required. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I can post within the UK if required as long as postage is paid for.

This is a pair of Hope X2 brakes, with the Tech 2 Evo levers, and Braided hose upgrade. These are in very good condition, and have only had 1 season of use. They come with brand new pads installed. The front lever has just had a brand new piston and seal kit fitted ready for sale. There is a scrape on the top of one of the levers, and a small bit of corrosion on the bottom of one of the callipers, however this just effects the very top layer or material, and is just cosmetic damage. These pieces of damage can be seen in the photos. I bought these brakes for over £300 and am asking for £140 after they have had relatively little use, so reasonable offers only please. Feel free to contact me with any questions!
