After 1 ride on the 36, I realised the best place for the Pikes!

Saracen Ariel 15x High Spec Build! PRICE DROP!

$2550 GPB
Hi, This is the very reluctant sale of my hardly-used Saracen Ariel 15X custom built bike. I built this in August this year with mostly new parts, for huge expense. Due to work and family commitments, I've barely touched it since then. It's become a running joke how little I ride, and it's time to bite the bullet and accept that I don't need a high end bike any more. I'm a professional bike mechanic (Cytech 2) with a decade of experience, and this bike is PERFECT. Every single bit has been very carefully selected to be the best on the market, and it's perfectly built and set-up. As some of you may know, I work in the industry, and this bike has been more of a vanity project/show piece. The full spec, and more details: Saracen Ariel 2014 15X frame, carbon back-end, Reverb Stealth routing. Size 19", large. Highly respected frame, in the Dirt 100. The bike had the updated pivot hardware fitted when first built, and will come with 3 sets of spare pivot bushes, just in case. Couple of tiny cable scuffs, but absolutely no damage whatsoever. Looks 100% brand new when built. Fox Float X shock. This was run 'standard' for a while, and then went back to Mojo for a custom re-valve, to slightly raise the compression tune for more mid-stroke support. It hasn't been ridden since this work. I have all the paperwork to prove. Fox 36 Float RC2 2015. This is the latest and greatest fork, £900 worth, less than half a dozen rides. Pretty well dialled in, come complete with both axles and the volume spacers. I originally built the bike with Pikes, but after riding a new 36, I had to have it. Mavic Crossmax Enduro wheelset, straight, tight, true, bearings are 100% perfect. Renthal FatBar Lite Carbon 740x20mm bar and Duo stem. Hope headset, perfect condition. Shimano XT brakes with fresh sintered pads, perfectly bled and set up. Shimano XT RT86 Ice-Tech rotors front and rear. Shimano XT cranks with a new, unused BB70 bottom bracket. e13 XCX+ chain device and guide ring. Why no narrow/wide? Cos I'm a fussy b*stard and insist on running a 33t chainring... Wellgo MG1 magnesium pedals. Onza Ibex 2.4 tyres, set up tubeless with Continental sealant and DT Swiss valves. Bloody brilliant. If you want, you can have the original Mavic Crossmax Charge/Roam tyres as well. They're too heavy for my tastes. XT 11-36 cassette and chain, new 6 rides ago. Saint rear mech, set-up with the wide ratio spacer. XT shifter, with a brand new teflon coated cable. The posh £12 one... Hope grips. RockShox Reverb Stealth seatpost, with remote run under the left hand. The Reverb came back from SRAM Tech today after a full rebuilt, and as such is perfect. SDG Bel-Air 2.0 saddle with ti-alloy rails. The best bit of all? The custom made (by Mojo) genuine Kashima headset spacer, made from a machined down 32mm stanchion, and matching genuine Kashima top cap. All in all, the fastest, most fun bike I've ever owned, and I've had a lot. Gutted to sell, but make my loss your gain! No silly offers or messing about. Would cost at least £4500 to build at RRP. Only this one is BETTER than that, as it's had my very expensive time and expertise spent on it! £2800, no offers. Any further info or pictures, just ask. Located at a popular riding venue in South Wales... PRICE NOW DROPPED TO £2550!

Mojo DFender Mud Guard, RockShox fit.

$30 GPB
Hi, For odd reasons, I've found myself with 2 DFender mudguards, so this one is up for sale. RRP is £49, and worth every penny. This has the clamp to fit any RockShox fork. I've run it on Pikes, Boxxers and Revelations with no problems. It's a bit muddy (obviously) but in perfect working order. I wouldn't be without one now. Will fit ALL wheel sizes. £25 cash on collection, or £30 posted anywhere in mainland UK. Thanks Joe

Mavic Crossmax Charge & Roam Tyres

$40 GPB
Hi, I've got these Mavic tyres that came with my Enduro WCS wheels that I'm not using anymore. They're 27.5/650b size. The front Crossmax Charge is in fantastic condition, having done maybe 30 rides or so. Still good sharp tread blocks, and no damage whatsoever. The rear Crossmax Roam is showig signs of use, but it's just general wear rather than damage or bald spots. I'm not particularly hard on tyres, so they haven't been skidded or drifted or torn apart. Both tyres were set up tubeless with no problems at all. No punctures or leaks. There's some sealant residue left inside. Retail is something like £100 for the paiR. I'm after £40. Cash on collection, or PayPal. Contact me about postage costs. Many thanks Joe

Fox Float CTD Kashima Factory rear shock, BRAND NEW!

$270 GPB
Hi all, I have here a BRAND NEW, UNUSED Fox Float CTD rear shock. This is the top of the range Factory series version, with Kashima coating and Trail Adjust feature. This shock came with a frame I bought, but I removed it and ran a different one from brand new, so this has never, ever been used. More than that, it also comes with a full warranty, and all the same back up as buying from a shop. The shock is 200 x 57 mm, with a custom rebound and compression tube that is basically medium/medium. Complete with owners manual and lovely little bag. Payment on collection or via PayPal. Postage is additional cost, contact me for details. Thanks Joe
