For sale is my spare wheel ( I no longer have a bike to use it with ). Was built up around a year ago by my local bike shop and never used. Saint hub with Saint 203mm centre lock rotor laced to a Mavic 321 rim with a Maxxis Minion 2.5" UST tubless Super Tacky tyre. Has a Stans No Tubes DH tubeless conversion kit fitted ( just renewed sealant ready for sale ). Included is a DT Swiss brake rotor adaptor so you can run 6 bolt rotors instead of centre lock type if you choose to. Bearings run silky smooth and rim was set true/ straight when built and unused since.

For Sale is my Lapierre DH720. Most of these stay spec'ed stock because they work so good but my one is hugely upgraded. I have fitted a Works Components -1.5 degree headset kit, and a pair of Burgtec titanium offset bushes to the shock to give it more modern day geo of 63.2 degree head angle slightly lower BB height. I have recently renewed all 8 frame swing arm bearings, fitted a new press fit BB, and some UberBike Race Matrix brake pads. I,ve serviced the forks renewing the oils and grease in the uppers and lowers. Theres an Avalanche open bath custom valved cartridge fitted to the boxxers which is a huge upgrade. Few light marks to the paint in places as you would expect but everything works perfectly due to the amount of money and care i pump into it. Only been out on it 3 times since all this work was done. Heres the spec : Boxxer Race fork with Avalanche Open Bath, Speed Sensitive damper cartridge and adjustable shim stack, tunable oil heights, ( rebound adjuster on upper and compression on lower leg ). K9ine direct mount stem, 5mm spacer shim + titanium bolts. Works Components -1.5 degree headset kit. Deity Black Label bars 760mm with ODI ruffain grips. Fox RC2 rear shock TF Tuned with 350 pound spring and 2x titanium offset bushes and titanium bolts. Shimano XT brakes with 'Race Matrix' pads Goodridge braided hose kits, titanium bolts, 203mm rotors ( Hope m4 front, Avid G3 clean sweep rear ). Shimano Saint cranks with saint 38t ring, and SuperStar Nano pedals. E13 chain guide, KMC gold hollow pin chain, 9 speed 26t-12t sram cassette, Zee cluth rear mech and Sram X5 shifter. SuperStar DH rims on Saint front hub with dt swiss disc adaptor, and Ringle jumping flee rear hub, Maxxis Highroller tyres ( ST 42a front, MaxPro 60a rear ). SDG I-beam post and Black leather Fly saddle. Titanium bolts thoughout frame and inernally routed hose and cable. Frame sizes if it helps: 20.2" ( 511mm) top tube lenght (centre of seat post -to-headset). 16.8" (419mm) centre of BB-to- seat clamp. I can deliver the bike in person within reason ( say 50-60 miles of Oswestry in Shropshire ) if you like.

Schwalbe's Procore Only Available at your LBS
I like local bike shops, but i love spending less on my products alot more. I'm betting it will cost on good 20% more buying from a bike shop rather than online ? Just like nearly every thing else i price for my bike.
