I live in sunny Cornwall.

I have ridden mtb trials for over 12 years. In 2007 I started riding bit of freeride and DH. Since 2010 I've really got into the DH and now it is my main discipline ahead of trials.

I have started racing Enduro but my ambition is to compete and be competitive in the BDS in the next few years.

Marzocchi 380 / 888 Ti Spring Hard 6.5 5141957/P

$125 GBP
For sale my Marzocchi 380 / 888 Titanium Spring Hard 6.5 5141957/P I removed these from my 380 C2R2 forks. The stiffer spring gives so much better performance, I found the medium to be too soft and used too much travel on smaller hits. Titanium massively lighter than the steel equivalent, probably half the weight if not less! In top notch condition, approximately 20-25 hours of use. Cost £250 new IIRC. Any questions please let me know. Thanks James

How to Silence Your Creaking e*Thirteen Cassette
I might be just unlucky but ALL the e13 stuff I have had has been a huge disappointment. Got a lot of e13 stuff on my new YTs and all of it either broke or was hassle. The rear TRS+ hub especially was utterly s&%^$. I sold most of the stuff and replaced with Hope and Shimano :) job done!

RockShox Pikes 454 U-Turn 95-140mm Travel

$150 GBP
For sale my awesome 2008 RockShox 454 Pikes. I've broken down my top spec Cove Sanchez to invest the money into my DH and Trials Bikes. The Sanchez was used for XC not dirt jumping. I love these things, lovely plush super responsive travel, strong and the U-Turn / Compression damping (effective lock out) means they are really adaptable to all types of riding. Read some reviews here: http://www.pinkbike.com/product/rockshox/Pike-454-U-Turn/ I've done around 250 miles of XC on them, they've never put a foot wrong, no leakage around the seals and always been reliable. I always fully clean and lube (silicolne lube) the stanchions before and after every ride. They're in fantastic condition for a 2008 fork as you can see. Stanchions are perfect with not a mark on them. A great fork for any hardtail or 100mm - 140mm full susser. I'll measure the steerer length tomorrow and post up. Update: Steerer is 1 1/8 straight and 200mm. Axle is 20mm. Any questions please let me know. Cheers guys James

Shimano Cranks / FSA 36t / MRP Bashgaurd / Inner Guide

$70 GBP
Bought in 2014 for around £140. For sale this awesome Shimano STX crankset with FSA 36t chainring, MRP bashgaurd and Blackspire inner guide plate. Cranks are 4 bolt square taper. This is a fanastic setup for anyone looking for boomproof but light XC / light FR crankset. It looks so good on the bike and the combination of the bashplate and inner guide means the chain never comes off. The chainring is top of the range FSA DH 3mm that cost £40. There's some cracks in the bashring where I slightly overtightened the bolts but its absolutely rock solid on the bike and will still do the job of protecting your chain and chainring. It could easily be glued and be as good as new. Tapers are square, plenty of life left in the teeth, Great looking and performing crankset. Any questions please let me know.

Shimano Saint 9spd M810 Shifter and Rear Mech Med Cage

$90 GBP
For sale this ultimate 9spd shifter and rear mech combo. These would have retailed at well over £200 when new. These things are part of the Shimano Saint family, those who don't know Saint is the full on in your face downhill offering from Shimano. Whilst Saint is sometimes a bit overkill for XC / Enduro I chose these for my Cove XC build because it just makes for the most awesome shifting. The spring on the rear mech is a monster and just ploughs through the gears. The shifter is precise a top quality. Vast majority of reviews on the M810 Saints are raving about how good the stuff is. It's 9spd, perfect working order and ready to transform the shifting on your bike. Really awesome stuff :) Any questions please let me know. Cheers guys James

Hope Pro 2 Evo on Mavic D521 inc Maxxis Larsen TT

$250 GBP
For sale my awesome Hope Pro 2 Evo / Mavic wheelset. It's 2 years old, probably covered around 250 miles and cost over £400 new. As you can see the wheelset is in top notch condition and looks stunning on the bike. I've broken down my top spec Cove Sanchez to invest the money into my DH and Trials Bikes. The Sanchez was used for XC not dirt jumping. The wheels were built by Chain Reaction (very very good wheel builders) and is solid, true with no buckles or flat spots. Tyres are the crazy Larsen TT XC tyres - these things absolutely rip! Also has 9spd cassette, 160mm Avid Rotors (brakes also for sale if interested). All in all a stunning wheelset; super fast, light, rock solid build and ready to rip. Wheel size is 26". Free postage next day delivery. Any questions please let me know. Cheers James
