Where to begin.
I originally bought this bike from someone who just used it for commuting with the intention of using it as a winter bike/ something to get back to basics on, however it soon didnt go that way.
When i got it it had maxxis moto tyres, old manatou forks and a spare rim (all included in the sale), these were stripped off and replaced with a set of folding schwalbe nobby nic tyres and a set of u turn rockshox toras. This transformed the bike and meant it was now my go to bike. Why? Because it it was simply so fun, it is a small however i am 5'10 and it fitted me spot on with a long seat post as it meant it was nice and short and easy to throw about.
It has had a slotted link chain (lighter) and a 11-36 cassette fitted 2 rides ago (one 1hour and one 20 minutes long) so these are like new.
It has also had within the last few months new inner and outer cables, new rear brake pads and a new bottom bracket.

Manatour spv 130mm forks, could do with a service as the rebound is all over the place which is common if they are a bit low on oil so should be an easy fix.
2x Maxxis moto tyres with a ton of tread left.
As I said before, i fell in love with this bike and has wanted nothing but sadly it must now go.
It is used (obviously) so please do not expect a mint condition bike as it has been used for what it was intended for.
A couple of things to note.
The rear pads now squeak as i got a bit trigger happy with the oil, would only take a few mins to clean up.
Not sure how the rebound adjustment works on these forks, there only seems to be two positions instead of loads of clicks? Never bothered me as they were spot on for how i liked them.
Pick up is welcome from near Goole or Fulford, local drop off is also available if arranged before hand.
If you are wanting this posted, please allow me enough time to get a box and enough bubble wrap from my local bike shop so do not expect this to arrive within a day or so.
Any questions message me and i will get back asap.
