Video: Offroad 10 Speeds
They're cx bikes not road bikes anyway, one has mini vs and one has discs, look how wide the tyres are. They're designed to be ridden offroad, which makes this actually fairly mundane comapred to actual cx

Commencal Meta AM XL Frame

$525 GPB
2013 Commencal Meta AM XL frameset, Bought NEW in late October last year as a complete bike. Selling this as it is far too much bike for the location that I am now living in and, I would much rather that someone who would actually use it get some enjoyment out of it. It is an incredibly capable bike and has been great on all day rides in Wales and bombing down local trails in Devon as well as some coming into its own on some truly epic days riding in the Alps and I really am sad to see it go but I just cant justify keeping it. Frame size is XL with a top tube length of 650mm and would suit a rider 5'11 upwards. I ran it with a 50mm stem and a 780mm bar, but it came stock with a 70mm stem and 720mm which felt fine ( I just wanted matching Renthal stuff ;P ) Includes: Commencal Meta AM frameset FOX Float CTD shock Sealed bearing tapered headset. SRAM X7 Crankset and BB 31.6mm Seatpost and a seatclamp (The crankset, bb and seatpost are included as they will not fit on any of the other bikes i own so the buyer may as well have them to lessen the cost of building it up into a bike!) The frame has been raced and ridden throughout the year so has some scuffs and rub marks here and there but its been well looked after mechanically and functionally. The rub marks on the chainstay and seatstay pictured occured during a very wet gritty day at Bike Park Wales a week after I got it and havent got any larger in the 11 months since. The bike has been unused since August so has onlyhad 10 months use The BB is getting a bit rough but should last another couple of months. I can include: The Sun Ringle Charger wheelset with a set of summer and winter tyres for another £150, summer tyres are 2.4 Maxxis ardent and winter tyres are 2.35 Specialized Storm/ Hillybilly The SRAM X7/X5 drivetrain, Formula RX brakes and Renthal finishing kit for another £150 I'm more than happy to answer any questions, or queries Payment Via Paypal/ Collection Welcome but Postage is also available! Cheers Ben

Rockshox Pike RCT3

$480 GPB
2014 160mm travel Rockshock Pike RCT3 solo air for sale £480. Steerer tube is 211mm long Easily the best single crown fork I have ever ridden, Only reason for sale is that I have moved to a much flatter part of the country and they are a bit overkill. They have been well looked after but have been raced and ridden in the mud and wet so have some cable rub marks on the crown and marsh guard rub marks to the lowers inside the arch. Lowers have been helitaped from new to protect from rock strikes etc. Includes service kit and shock pump. Any questions, please ask. Cheers Ben.

Santa Cruz Nomad - Review
Doesn't change the fact that its much smaller than many of its peers in the same size. when you look at average heights a medium should fit up to 5'11" a large should be up to around 6'3" and the XL should be for people above that. Santa cruz aren't the only company undersizing bikes. Treks come up really short too in my experience. Some people might be OK with a shorter top tube but personally I like having a long enough reach that I'm not sat bolt upright like a granny heading down to the shops without having to run a long stem.
