I bought this bike in spring 2016 for the sole purpose of taking it to the Alps in the summer, which I did. Since then I haven't even taken it out of the garage so it's time to sell it. Other than the couple of weeks in the Alps, the frame is pretty much brand new and I would describe it as in very good condition. There is a bit of cable and pedal rub here and there but the bearings all perfectly fine and the shock is a long way off being due a service. The forks have just had a lower leg service and new decals. No marks on the stanchions. The cranks have some wear on them but fully working with nice, smooth BB bearings. Both wheels/tyres set up tubeless. I'm only selling because I simply don't get enough use out of it to justify having it in the garage. It really is an excellent example of a well looked after downhill bike which would make an idea race bike or just something to take on the odd uplift day or trip to Europe. You won't be disappointed.

A bit about the bike
It rides very well on steep or very rough terrain, something I've found common in most bikes I've ridden with a VPP. The back wheel feels very planted in the turns and the whole bike is very responsive and reactive to your movements, allowing you to let the rear wheel drift out a little in a very controllable way. I found that it excelled at the faster, rougher tracks like Pila.
