No pedals included. Bike has been well used but with many new parts from my new kenevo, a new motor and most of the original components upgraded recently is ready for lots more riding. Usual small signs of wear on the frame but overall great condition. Any questions just ask.

6 months old with not much use, pretty much in as new condition apart from a small scuff to a tiny part of the decals and the slightest bit of cable rub on the crown which I've tried to show in the photos. Great performing forks I just don't need them at the moment. 180mm steerer. Any questions just ask! Cheers Si..

For sale is my well used but well loved 2013 Orange Alpine. This bike has served me well from epic big days in the saddle to racing downhill and the odd marathon its done it all and never let me down. Fresh drivetrain and brakes this year, JTECH tuned and serviced suspension (including a mod to the forks to allow volume reducers to be fitted as you normally can't on the travel adjust Pikes), 1 degree Works Components angleset fitted to slacken it off a little and steepen the seat angle a bit, tubeless setup on the Stans rims. All in good working order, bike still rides amazing! Full spec: 2013 Orange Alpine frame rp23 fox air shock with propedal. JTECH custom tuned and serviced. New low friction bushes fitted from TFtuned recently. 2014 Rock Shox Pikes travel adjust model JTech custom tuned and serviced with volume spacer mod Works Components -1 degree angleset Renthal 50mm stem Renthal 38mm rise fatbars 770mm Thompson seatpost Specialized henge sl 130 body geometry saddle Hope quick release seat clamp (red) Shimano XT cranks (under a year old) e13 33t narrow wide chainring (under a year old) Shimano XT brakes with 185/165 Ice-Tech rotors (under a year old) Shimano XT cassette 11-36 10 speed (under a year old) Shimano (I think!) hollow pin chain (under a year old) Shimano Zee rear deraileur (under a year old) Shimano XT shifeters Shimano DX pedals Hope pro 2 front and rear hubs (red) Double butted spokes (black) Brass nipples threadlocked Stans Arch EX rims setup tubeless with Maxxis Shorty 2.3 EXO 3C maxxterra tyres Optional : Renthal Fatbar carbon 780mm 38 mm rise £50 I have an old Reverb which will need a service as its super sticky and there's also some wobble in the remote. I don't use a dropper anymore as all my local trails are big climbs followed by big descents so a quick release is all I need. If you want it it yours for £25, I think a service is about £80 so factor that in if you want it. All my old 26" tyres, some of which are brand new if the asking price is met. As mentioned above this bike has been well used but I have replaced all components as and when needed so there is no reason why it wont keep running for some considerable time yet! I've tried to include any noticable marks on the photos, the main ones being some uplift damage from the 1 downhill race I did on the bike (headtube, fork crown) and some wear from all the pedalling I've done on this bike on the toptube. Main pivot is still good but I have some bearings you can have for when (if!) they ever go. Hopefully I've gone over everything but any questions just ask! Bike can be viewed in Leek, Staffordshire from Mondays to Wednesdays while I'm at work or in Abertillery, South wales the rest of the week. Cheers Si..

Nant Gwrtheyrn Gets a Lick of New Paint - Video
Could not disagree with you more mate. I'm English (for my sins) and moved up that way 10 years back and all the locals were nothing short of legends to me, some of the best lads I've had the pleasure of riding with. And if you are not happy with the facilities being offered to you, GO AND BUILD YOUR OWN. Unbelievable that someone could have these places built for them and then complain about it!! When I moved up that way there was nothing, we built and maintained our own trails and created a pretty amazing network of trails that we could uplift ourselves. Building trails takes A LOT of time, energy and money, you surely don't expect people to do this for free for your convenience? If you're not getting on with the locals I would suggest a change of attitude my friend.
