Complete bike. I believe it is a 15" frame. Good bike with good level of components for serious use. Make a great Xmas present. Currently built up as a 1 x 9 setup and really is a bike that will last a long time. Much better value than buying some new s'#t bike if you know what to look for in a bike. Frame was professionally powder coated at Argos Bristol and bike has only done about 50 miles of riding since that time. Talas adjustable 110 - 130 mm forks (serviced 2 years ago at MOJO and bike not used) Maxxis High roller tyres Saint rear derailleur Deore shifter Hayes hydraulic brakes Monkey Lite Bars Race Face respond 175 cranks with bash plate Hope Doctor SDG Patriot saddle Shimano XTR bottom bracket Can be viewed in Cwmbran area. Looking for as close to £550 as possible

5 Movement Tips to Help Your Cornering Technique
Cheers James. Thanks for the video updates. Its good to have the technique broke down and have these visualization reminders to apply on the trail. As you mention its easier to fall back to a drill technique when things aren't quite working out. Good work.

Pinkbike Poll: The Demise of 26'' Wheels - Unnecessary Extinction or Natural Evolution?
The industry is totally messed up now IMO. Haven't ridden a 650B and I'm sure its advantages are probably justified to the pros and serious amateur racers, but most people will be happy riding what they have got and unsettled by all the changes. Personally I ride an Alpine 160, its newest creation is still in 26". Myself, I would be holding back on changing my bike with the current crop of wheel size offerings. Rather keep my money in my pocket and see what develops, although if I was a serious amteur racer I would probably look to the merits of 650B. New purchasers must be seriously confused and probably doped in to making purchases based on biased revues rather than the real issues of the bike, frame, ongoing maintenance and the type of riding they really will end up doing. I know guys who have been duped into the 29" revolution on their first hardtails and now fitting dropper posts etc and I'm thinking whats the point, the bike is only good for XC racing and such, whereas I think if they had stuck with a 26" even if the geometry etc hadn't been perfect, they would at least have some sort of chance at moving in to other areas of MTB riding.

Hope bottom bracket 68/73mm hollowtech 2 type Does not include bearings. Less than 1 year old. I hit crank arm heavy and damaged bearing, but was unable to replace bearing at the time so ended up buying a new bottom bracket. Includes bearing outer shields and 3 spacers as seen in photo. Bearings are available from either Hope or Enduro.

Forks have been serviced annually at MOJO (last serviced around FEB 2013 and fitted with SKF seals) plus I carry out 30 hour lower lube services. Stanchions are not Kashima. Last time I did a lowers service I have noticed that there are some slight signs of stanchion wear but there are no marks scratches or damage to stanchions, which I hope is all evident on photos. Lowers are also in good condition with nothing other than general wear and slight cable rub particularly under rebound knob on CSU. Steerer 185mm Not shown on photo but comes with 20mm thru axle. Compared to other peoples forks I have seen of this age at trail centres etc and some advertised on forums I would describe condition as 8.5 out of 10 for their age. Forks taken off my Orange Alpine. Will also fit tapered Orange Five (would highly recommend as an upgrade from 32's for gravity and enduro riders) and others. PRICE is for forks posted uk
