Emotional as it is, the time has come to say goodbye to my Balfa. If you remember these from their era, you’ll know how versatile and sought after they were. Originally it was built up for street riding, but over the years morphed into more of a general trail hardtail, before being dug out again recently and having some Supermoto tyres put on for evenings at the pump track. Condition is as you’d expect given the age, but has been well loved and looked after over the years and still rides well. The build is all age appropriate and running well. Highlights include Marzocchi 66 RC2X forks, Hope Mono M4 brakes, Hope Bulb on Mavic EX729 rims, Truvativ Holzfeller cranks, Shimano 105 mech on 11-28 cassette (and a chain not even showing 0.5% stretch), with a Sram Attack 8 speed shifter. I have to confess the seatpost is seized, but there are plenty of people out there that can rectify this. In the not too distant future, I will be stripping it down and advertising the major parts separately. As such, I’m open to some movement on price, but aware that I can still get reasonable money for these bits individually. I’m based in Sheffield but happy to ship it anywhere at the buyer’s expense via UPS. Feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have. Many thanks

It’s time to part company with my Whyte. Was bought new in October 2018 and ridden but well maintained since. The bulk of the spec is as it originally was, with key upgrades to make the bike mine… Renthal Fatbar 35, 800mm wide, 10mm rise Renthal Apex 35 stem, 30mm long Shimano M7000 SLX brakes with 203/180mm Ice Tech rotors Maxxis Minion DHF 29x2.5WT (3C/TR/EXO) front tyre Maxxis Minion High Roller 2 29x2.5WT (3C/TR/EXO) rear tyre (both set up tubeless with Stan’s sealant) DMR Deathgrips (firm, thick) There are the usual signs of wear, such as a few scuffs from uplifts and car racks, however the frame has been wrapped in Invisiframe since its first ride, along with rubber wrapping on the chainstay and seatstay, additional taping on any potential cable / hose rub points, and pedal washers and crank boots (which will be supplied) on the cranks, meaning nothing has got through to the important bits. The bike has been fully serviced since its last ride. Suspension was serviced at the start of the summer, but can include a fork seal kit for the next service. All bearings are still running smoothly as you’d want. To give an idea of the wear on the bike, the original chain is still measuring at less than 0.5% stretch. I’m based in Sheffield, but am happy to post anywhere at the buyer’s expense. Have flown with and shipped bikes many times in the past, so it will be well wrapped and packaged and sent via UPS, who I have generally found to be the best value. Feel free to get in touch with any questions you might have. Many thanks

Unridden 2017 Liv Hail 2. The Hail is the ladies version of the popular Reign enduro bike. It has 160mm of travel front and rear, with a Yari RC fork and a Rockshox Deluxe shock. The groupset is 11 speed Sram NX, with Sram Guide R brakes (both with 200mm rotors). Finishing kit is a combination of Truvativ and Giant, including a Giant Contact SL dropper post. The XS size is suitable for anyone up to about 5'5. The bike originally retailed at £2,600 and has never been ridden.

Whyte T-130 in an XL (good for anyone 6' and up) Bought as the stock "S - Yari" build with Sram GX groupset, Rockshox Yari forks, WTB wheelset and Rockshox Reverb dropper, but upgrades have been had along the way. It's now running a Renthal fatbar 780mm bar and Apex stem, XT M785 brakes with 203 / 180mm Ice Tech rotors, a Rockshox Monarch Plus shock and Maxxis DHF and High Roller 2 tyres (both 2.3" 3C, EXO being run tubeless). The shock is brand new, all frame bearings have just been replaced, as has the chain and brake pads. Forks have just had a full service (including new oil and seals). Will be supplied with a new seal kit for the shock as well as a new mech hanger (always useful to have one handy). As the photos show, there are a few scuffs etc. from a year's worth of use, but it's been well loved and well looked after. Feel free to get in touch with any questions etc. Currently based in Sheffield, but happy to meet within a reasonable distance.
