$400 GBP
Orange Patriot (2005?) 16.5" frame Used on DH, trail, XC, the first true 'All-Mountain' bike. Selling due to moving away, upgrading to a newer bike and not needing it anymore. This bike was purchased second hand 6 years ago and has been ridden, maintained and upgraded whenever necessary. I did most of the maintenance work before moving away and replaced several parts (listed). Spec: Frame: Orange Patriot (2005?) 16.5" Forks: Marzocchi Bomber Z1 150mm air pre-load Shock: Fox DHX Air 5 Brakes: Hayes Ryde F+R 180mm rotors Both brakes have been bled and new pads installed.

This is a work bike, not a display model. This bike will not come with pedals. Any questions PM me. Local pickup or meetup at a convenient point. It is not viable to post this, unless buyer organises.

Ask Pinkbike - Rotor Diameter vs. Stopping Power, Dropper Post Length, Broken Chain Mystery, and Tires for UK Winter
As far as I know there is no law, but in keeping business means having happy customers. Sometimes it is a defect, other times it's the way the bike is treated. To differentiate would cause friction between the customers and us and make our job more complex. I believe the term you are looking for is 'consumable parts'.

In the shop I work at we offer a six week part guarantee along with one years frame warranty. If it's a genuine defect (the bb creaking on a kids bike after 3 weeks, for example) then we replace it FOC. But it's trying to explain to customers that if you leave the bike outside, wet, muddy and generally treat it like a dog's blanket the you'll have no sympathy from us. Alas, the customer is always right though...

I've been riding here for the past four years, and every year I'm like, "Let's ride somewhere new next year". And then you go and post an article like this. I'll be back (again).

I'm going to be that pillock and disagree. My vote is for Rachel. Getting a virus at the beginning of the season and still committing to racing? That's a racer's spirit.
