For sale is my brand new Empire Cycles MX6 Evo frame, plus a few extras which are specific to it Frame is the MX6 Evo in Extra Large. All MX6 Evo frames are the same height, 18" and only vary in length, this is the longest they do, but due to the low standover will fit anyone, im 6'2" and used a 150mm Reverb dropper to get the required seat height, but i have mates who are comfortable on it who are much shorter at 5'8". RRP on the frame is £1300 with the upgraded Rockshox Monarch Plus shock as fitted. I will also include: Hope seat collar £15 Hope headset for it (this can be fitted if required) RRP £50 Main pivot spanners RRP £15 Geometry adjust shock mounts to slacken the frame out 1/2 a degree RRP £20 3 spare mech hangers RRP £16 each Rockshox debonair upgrade sleeve £100 Total of spare parts value is £248 Full frame details can be found here: http://empire-cycles.com/product.php?xProd=42 This is the second one I've had. The first went back to Empire to get the shock looked at (it was replaced) and was then sent back. Sadly it got damaged in transit and has taken an age to get sorted (circa 6 months) as such I have already replaced the frame with something else and now have a brand new frame! The upshot of this is that this is a serious bargain for someone out there. it is awesome to ride, genuinely awesome and incredibly rare, this is number 69. I guarantee you'll never see another on the trails and as such it gets a lot of attention if thats your thing! It is also incredibly tough, you won't find bearings that last like these on anything else. its a perfect UK conditions frame. Brief list of the crucial dimensions are: 650b wheelsize 150-160mm fork optimised 73mm threaded Bottom bracket required 12x142 rear wheel 31.6mm seatpost Tapered headset (ZS44/ZS56) As this is brand new, it is utterly immaculate and unmarked anywhere.

Pinkbike Poll: Fashion or Function?
Personally i think that thing is a work of art, granted some of the pics shown in the article don't do it any favours, but it is stunning. Kudos for using carbon as it should be, not just replicating metal tubes.

Because then you'd have a massive cleat shaped spike sticking out your sole and wouldn't be able to walk..

All Done - Ask Us Anything: Crankbrothers
@Crankbrothers, you are Very VERY brave to be doing this given the history of the company. Kudos to you. Why should I buy a high line seatpost over the many other proven products, especially given the repeated failures of your past models?
