If I had two faces, would I be wearing this one?

Planet X Tempest Titanium Gravel Bike - Force 1 build

$1100 GBP
Selling my Planet X Tempest. Purchased last year primarily for one event. I've tried to get into it and whilst I've enjoyed riding it, I'm not using it for much beyond the commute - my heart lies in mountain biking, and it's far too nice a ride to use for just pottering to work and back! Size medium frame, in triple-butted hand welded titanium - lovely smooth feel to the ride, as with any well made titanium frame. For reference I'm 5'10 and it fits me very well. Full geometry is on the Planet X website. Build is as follows: Tempest titanium frame in Med Force 1 groupset - carbon cranks, hydraulic brakes with carbon levers etc. Currently set up with a 42T chainring and 11-42 cassette. Selcof carbon seatpost (seattube is 31.6mm so can easily take a dropper if desired) Selcof carbon forks Selle Italia SLR Nubuk Ti saddle Clement Ushuaia wheelset - 36 POE hub with a nice but not excessive buzz, 23mm inner width rims, taped for tubeless use. Panaracer Gravel King tires in 700x38c. I have a virtually unused - perhaps 50 miles on them - set of Vittoria Adventure Trails also in 38c that I'll include with the bike. Selcof 100mm stem Selcof 42cm bars Holdsworth Gran Sport bar tape in brown - looks classy with the Ti frame, Nubuk saddle and tanwall tires ;) There are a pair of Crankbrothers Candy pedals currently fitted that I'll happily leave on if desired. Bike has been well cared for - cleaned/lubed regularly etc. and will have a full service at my LBS on 21/06 (will not be ridden after this). Since I like complete honesty when buying things, I feel it is appropriate to show the same candour when selling - thus, while the bike is in good condition and has no functional issues whatsoever, there are a few cosmetic bits: A bit of cable rub etc - barely noticeable on a Ti frame unless you look closely. Nick in the rear of the saddle and graze on derailleur (see pics 3/4). Caused by, um, failing to unclip at a set of traffic lights and falling over while stationary :P Rub patch on downtube and on non-driveside crank, from being in a bike rack (see pics 5/6). Only affects the lacquer - not gone into the carbon so doesn't have any functional impact. Rub on back of seatpost from mounting a light, and on toptube from a battery pack. Again only cosmetic. (see pic 7) Normal light rub on driveside crank. (see pic 8) I'd prefer cash on collection (based in the Exeter area) but will consider delivering within the Devon area or meeting part way up the M5 / down the A30 etc. There is no such thing as a non-negotiable price so I'll entertain sensible offers, although I'm in no hurry to sell. This model is currently retailing on the Planet X site at £1799.99 before the upgrades (saddle/seatpost/tape)

The bridge is being pulled open by the gravitational pull caused by the size of his testicles ;)
