FREE!! (Small Catch, read on) Ignore the price, Pinkbike needed a number >0. Saracen Ariel 2014 650B XL frame. Black, well used but in pretty good nick, no dents, and rides well, when it works. I bought it second hand as a full bike, got it home and found the main pivot bearing had seized, causing the aluminium threaded section in the carbon swing arm to de-bond, allowing the ali to spin in the carbon instead of the pivot moving around the bearing. I used epoxy resin to repair it as best I could, and seems to do the job for a few rides, but then stripping and re-applying the resin every now and then is required. I replaced the main pivot bearing and all the norglide bushings as well, but there is a small amount of play still (very minimal-possibly the shock, not included). After talking to Saracen, they said they'd sell me a swing-arm at cost price (£400) but I now have a Rocket so I don't need to buy a swing-arm for this. So you can either rock the frame as is and just epoxy the main pivot every now and then (accepting all responsibility for it of course!), or spend £400 on a swing-arm and have a great bike. It honestly rides really well, pedals up things fine too. It will not come with a shock (you'll need a 200x57) but it does come with new headset bearings (fitted), and a spare pack of norglide bushings. The bearings/bushings in the bike at the moment have seen one ride, so should be fine for many more rides. Takes a 30.9mm seatpost, and that can be stealth routed. There is a front mech position, but no cable routing on the bottom for a 2x, so it's 1x only. I'll put pictures up tonight. Shipping can be arranged, but UK only.

Price is posted for the pair. Good condition, still work very well. I've been using these on my commuter for a while, but I've swapped to drop bars so these are no longer needed. Still a fair bit of pad life left too. Includes rotors which are straight. Any questions please ask. Pics to follow.
