For sale is my 2012 Btwin Rockrider 9.1, i know that Btwin isn't exactly a brand associated with good bikes but i can honestly say that this bike did very well. It was the first proper mountain bike i owned so it's a fairly reluctant sale as this is the bike that got me into mountain biking. Despite being a 120mm travel XC/All mountain bike, it can handle jumps and rougher trails much better than you would think and i'm saying this even after riding the nicest bikes out there (santa cruz, yeti, scott etc as i work at a bike shop). I have taken this bike to places such as Aston Hill and Woburn and it has handled them absolutely fine! However after a year of owning this bike i decided i wanted to pursue Downhill riding and that although this bike never broke or anything, that i would be better of with an actual downhill bike so since then, the bike has not seen much use so as you can see in the pictures included, it is in pretty good condition. With the bike i will include an extra set of handlebars and stem (the original's from the bike as it came) and also a spare tyre. The bike has had some upgrades which include FSA handlebars and and a better stem as well as an atomlab tough rear wheel and a brand new front wheel! (shimano deore hub and mach 1 mx rim). The bike also has some brand new Sram grips. The bike is in perfect working order and can be ridden without need of a service etc. Spec is as follows. (good spec for money as this bike was reviewed by some magazines like MBUK as the second best full suspension bike under £1000).
