Is Specialized Finally Going 650b?
Tyre sizings are making even less sense now, mixing metric and imperial systems on the same tyre size. 27.5" x 2.3" OR 650b x 59.

Time to sell my Saracen Ariel frame. This frame is BRAND NEW, never been used. I got it as a warranty replacement after cracking my 2011 version (such problems have were solved for this 2012 frame), but didn't use it as my new Banshee frame arrived 2 days after the aforementioned crack occurred. The shock (a Fox RP23 BV) and rear Rockshox maxle, however, are the original parts so they've seen 2 years of use. As this is a warranty replacement frame its not a pristine example, in that it has a couple of paint chips, but thats it. Shock is working perfectly with the 3 position Propedal and rebound adjust. Maxle also works flawlessly, and has never come loose on me on the old frame. I have a few spare shock mounting bolts, linkage bits and peices, and frame bushings that I'll throw in too as they don't make great paperweights. It comes with a seatclamp too; it's quick release and GOLD. Yes you did read that right; GOLD (or painted aluminium, you decide). I've got an old Raceface seatpost kicking around too which I could sell with if it'll be needed. 140mm travel, 17" frame, 135x12mm rear dropouts, 44/49 headtube, 73mm BB, ISCG 05 mounts, 30.9mm seatpost, dropper post hose mounts. So all the fashionable numbers, letters, attachments and bike nerd pleasing things! I think the headangle (for those that care) sat around 67 degrees with a 140mm Lyrik fork and an offset shock bushing; which is still in the frame. It's better. Trust me. The geometry remained unchanged from my 2011 frame, so I can give a pretty good story on how this bikes rides.. and that is very well. Happy to be pedalled all day around various sizings of mountains, to mega avalanche racing, to bike park berm SCHLEYING. More photos are available on request as is any more information. I'm a Cytech qualified bike shop mechanic if you have any compatibility inquiries or technical questions etc, too. I'll help wherever possible. Viewings are fine by me if youre local (East Sussex coast). Not sure what else to say, there's probably loads more I could write, but I'll leave you with 2 words: BUY IT!
