Intense Socom for Sale Been thrashed about for the summer and is really in need of some loving which I can’t give it. First pictures are pre summer, Indoor ones are recent. Not much has changed. Pictured without chain as I rode the last week of lifts in Morzine chainless due to rounded jockey wheel causing chain to slip down side and jam (see dark flash photo of rear mech) NEEDS: -Lower jockey wheel in rear mech replacing (Roughly £10 Like this: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/fr/en/shimano-jockey-wheels-mtb/rp-prod885) -Brake Bleed Advisable (Buy some oil and DIY, Oil is £15 max when buying official shimano stuff) RECOMENDED TO GET IT SWEET: -Service Forks -Paint the Frame -May aswell swap the bearings out if refurbing frame -9 Spd Shifter (Current is 10, bought cheap and without thinking, works fine just jumps about a little in middle gears) -Pedal end cap. 1 Missing causes 5mm of sliding back and forth on shaft. Not noticeable when riding though... (http://www.cyclezone.org.uk/cycling/blackspire-big-slim-pedal-end-caps.html) OTHER NOTES: -Super small dent (see pictures, close up of downtube) -Original shock linkage bolts rattled out and stripped threads on the lower 2 so replaced those with larger bolts through the linkage and nutted (stronger in my opinion, less likely to loosen also) -Top shock linkage bolts (seen with silver spacers on at the minute) They also rattled out and were lost so were replaced with longer ones to help them stay in (got ones which are too long so spacers are on there however there are short ones on the way so spacers will be gone and bolts will sit flush by tomorrow 13/9 -I've been told when a chain dies which it basically did, the cassette probably wants replacing, but it looks it decent condition tbh Summer Repairs: NEW CHAIN NEW GEAR CABLE NEW TYRES SHOCK LINKAGE BOLTS REPLACED (The old ones gave up, Lower Bolts Stripped thread so they were replaced with longer non-intense bolts nutted on the ends but stronger this way, Same again up top, old ones rattled out) I bought the frame used, re-sprayed it and built it up with mostly new parts in 2011. It's the latest Socom Frame you can get, 2009 with the 150mm rear end (you can't get newer ones, but you could of still bought them in later years), size medium (but at 6'2/3ish I'm happy on it), super small dent on down-tube (hasn't effected strength or flexed in anyway, any movement would have cracked the paint) and has been built up with a fairly high spec; Fox 40 RC2 Fox DHX5.0 Shimano Saint rear mech with zee shifter Shimano Saint Cranks Blackspire big slim pedals - Blue Shimano Saint Brakes with Saint levers and Avid discs Bontrager Big Earl Wheel-set E-thirteen LG1 Chain-guide - Black E-thirteen Chainring - Blue Answer Pro-Taper Bars - White Blackspire Das Stem - Blue Superstar Excel Grips - Blue Hope Headset Hope SeatClamp Nukeproof Seat Magic Mary 95% (NEW RECENTLY) Thanks for looking!
