Transition Double size Large

$600 GBP
Having a mental and physical declutter and unfortunately the Double has drawn the short straw. This is probably the most outright "fun" bike I've ever ridden; the word jib could have been invented for it. Problem is I no longer live near where I enjoyed riding it most and it isn't particularly suitable for most of my riding. As great as it is, I genuinely cannot remember the last time I rode it and we have a motorbike inbound, so it's being listed. Apparently one person owning a double figure number of bikes is unreasonable. Who knew? As I understand, this is one of not very many size Large Doubles made, bringing full sus dual slalom, dirt jump, 4X type riding to those of us over 5'10'. Perfect bike for Chicksands and a whole bunch of other similar places. Frame; 2012 Transition Double, size Large in red. Fox Float RP23 shock giving either 80 or 100mm rear travel depending on flip-chip orientation. Fork; X-Fusion Slant RL2 100mm travel. Lower leg service 0miles ago. Cosmetically poor condition and has not recently had a damper service, but owing to the type of bike it is, I've usually just run very high pressure and more or less locked them out, same with the shock. Drivetrain; Zee 7 speed using OneUp DH block and XT Ispec shifter, single chainring and top chainguide. Brakes; Shimano SLX on 203mm rotors Wheels; NS rims on Hope Pro 2 hubs Tyres; Maxxis High Roller 2 AND Continental Rubber Queens, 1 pair of each. Finishing kit; Truvativ Hussefelt stem, NEW Spank high rise bars, NEW Nukeproof grips, NEW Nukeproof DH saddle Would benefit from a full service realistically, but all the underlying components are great. Logic dictates I should sell this, but I really don't want to. £600 collected from Newport, Shropshire. Not willing to post.

Shimano XT M8000 drivetrain part groupset

$90 GBP
Selling my XT M8000 drivetrain parts. I had to switch to a Microshift drivetrain rather than this in an emergency and now I don't have the enthusiasm to take it off again, so I'm moving this along. Owned and ridden for several years on a handful of different hardtails, never missed a beat. XT RD-M8000-GS - The derailleur is one I acquired secondhand recently and fitted a new B-link. I've personally never used this derailleur on my bike, but I have ridden the bike it came off and it works perfectly. XT SL-M8000 - Shifter has been functionally perfect for years, no issues at all. Anodising has begun to wear on the shift lever, but that is the only cosmetic imperfection. XT CS-M8000 11-42t - Some slight discoloration and a little wear to some of the teeth but still shifts perfectly. Drivetrain always kept clean and lubed. Any questions, please do let me know and I'll be happy to assist. Collection from Newport, Shropshire or can post if postage and fees covered.

Thanks for looking and let me know any questions or additional photos needed. Available with a pair of used 203 + 180mm Shimano RT86 IceTec rotors in either 6 bolt or centrelock if needed for an extra £20/pair

Shimano Zee Brakeset

$150 GBP
Selling my Zees as I'm swapping to something else. These have been lightly used on a handful of bikes but mostly spent time as a backup set. As you can see from the photos they're very clean and barely scratched. Freshly bled and working perfectly with mixed pads in. Pads held in with a split pin but will ship with the proper screw if I can find one. £150 collected from Newport, Shropshire or can post. Postage and PayPal fees additional. Can also supply a spare Zee caliper for a little extra if needed. Please let me know any questions or more detailed photos needed.

Dartmoor Hornet Large Frame

$220 GBP
Moving on my Hornet frame as I've got a P7 coming. I've had this from new, around 18 months now and it's sadly never got the use it deserves. This a proper enduro hardtail, designed around 160mm forks, taking up to 180mm dual crowns if you fancy with a 64 degree headangle. It's mostly been used for tame XC and trail rides with no hard use, so the frame is in virtually perfect condition, with a HKT frame pack covering the obvious areas. I don't recall ever crashing this bike Has a Boost rear axle, external cable routing, threaded bottom bracket, ISCG tabs, short, straight seattube with stealth routing and very low standover. All the good things. Sold as a frame only (with tapered headset, new lower bearing one ride ago), or with a Cane Creek Helm listed separately, or a Pike for a lower-cost option. The Zee brakes currently fitted are also available, as are a set of XT M785s. Any questions, do let me know and I'll be happy to answer. Will add more and better photos shortly. £220 collected from Newport, Shropshire. Can post once I get a frame box.

Brian's Day 3 Randoms - Taipei Cycle Show 2023
@jdejace: DMR Defy is another good option for grabbing every last mm. Super low stack and a nice rise. Looks a little goofy but does my back a world of good not having bars 12" below the saddle

DH Bike Review: Canfield's Jedi Masters Rough Terrain
@barp: further reading: in addition to letters on the "correct" corresponding ends and DHR on both ends, you'll also find people who swear by DHF on both and lastly, people who swear by DHR front and DHF rear. Proving beyond doubt that when it comes to bikes, sometimes people just don't have a f****n clue what's going on...

He went to work for the BBC in some capacity I can't remember. It's a shame there was no post about it at the time.
