For sale is my Giant VT All Mountain frame with Rockshox Ario air rear shock. This frame has done me very well for getting into trail centre/all mountain type riding and it's only going to make way for something new. The frame has adjustable travel on the rear between 5.1" and 5.7", I recently replaced all of the linkage bearings and the tired Manitou rear shock with a new Rockshox Ario, so although the frame has done plenty of riding it has been looked after. The linkage is smooth with no play and the rear shock performs well, spring weight is adjustable by the air pressure and rebound damping is adjustable via the red knob. As mentioned this frame did very well to get me into this sort of riding (I'm normally a downhiller), it pedals extremely well on the climbs and the additional give in the rear end provides plenty of grip on the descents whilst making the whole thing a lot more comfortable. Hopefully it will go to a good home and get someone else plenty of enjoyment. The frame is a size medium and take a 30.9 seatpost, it takes a 1 1/8" steerer tube and is fitted with a headset to accommodate this, the rear wheel is 135mm and QR.

Fox Rampage downhill helmet for sale, this was bought brand new 2 weeks ago just before a 4 day riding trip to Spain when I realised my Troy Lee had a few cracks in the foam the day before my flight. I pulled the pads out and used my Troy Lee pads so the helmet has had 4 days of riding and 0 crashes, and the pads in there are fresh and new. There are a couple of tiny marks in the paint just where it was put down or from storage. The helmet comes complete with bag and original box and really is in almost mint condition. Size medium (57-58 cm head). Any questions please ask!

Giant VT frame in size Medium (I think), frame has had new bearings recently in all pivots and linkage and comes with a good condition Rockshox Ario rear shock and headset to take 1 1/8" fork. This is a great little frame, the fore-runner of the Trance and ideal for someone wanting a cheap way to get into or try out AM riding. Frame will be cleaned up prior to collection/posting I was in a rush to leave the house when I took the picture. £150 or offers please, can be collected from Somerset/Cardiff or I can post.

Riding Mountains: Destination X
Benjones - my apologies I took your initial comment out of context, I read it as a standard pinkbike 'my trails are better than yours', Emily has since explained what you meant (and so have you), which I'd probably agree with, although I've not spent much time in Scotland. Even in South Wales less than 20 minutes from a city we had a rider crash on a secret track and from all accounts it took pretty much every emergency service available a very long time to get the guy out simply because there is no access to that part of the track and they aren't set up for that sort of rescue, whereas I guess in the Alps it's every day's business.
