NS Soda Air, heavily upgraded

$1000 GBP
Selling my baby, as looking to switch to something with less travel, super good pedalling characteristics, etc.. I'm the only owner, bought it brand new in 2014. Frame is a 2013 model, size M - I'm 176 cms and it fits like a glove. Bomb proof, lively and confidence inspiring bike! As you'd expect, it does have a fair amount of scratches, rub marks and chips as it was being used in accordance with its purpose! ;) Absolutely no dents or cracks. It is in immaculate mechanical condition. I'm a bit of a freak if it comes to even the tiniest squeaks, rattling, etc. This bike has none. I looked after it properly and never abused it above its limits, although I'm not sure wether this bike has any limits.. I certainly do! Not much from the original parts are on the bike, majority of them have been upgraded.. I'll do my best to list everything below, although if I missed something - message me! Frame: AL6061-T6 Custom Formed & Butted, 177mm travel, switchable to 152mm Fork: Rock Shox Lyric R, solo air, upgraded with Mission Control damper with flood gate mod, Low and high speed compression adjustment, rebound adjustment, 170mm travel Shock: Cane Creek Double Barrel Air CS - bought new last year Headset: FSA integrated tapered IS42/52, sealed Crankset: Truvativ Descendant 170mm, One Up 32 teeth narrow-wide chainring Cassette: Sram 10 speed Derailleur: Shimano Deore Shadow Plus 10 speed Shifter: Shimano SLX 10 speed Bottom Bracket: Truvativ GPX 73mm threaded - bought last year Chain: Sram with power link Brakes: Shimano Deore M615 with ice tech rotors 180mm rear and 203mm front, NukeProof metalic pads nearly new - fitted November 2017 Handlebars: NS Evidence, 770mm wide Stem: Quark Pro 31.8, 40mm reach Grips: Lizard Skin Saddle: Haibike Seatpost: Rock Shox Reverb, 125mm travel Pedals: NS Aerial Wheelset: Mavic Crossmax Enduro - bought new in 2016 - rear axle have been upgraded to rock shox 12mm through QR axle Tyres: Maxxis Minion DHF supertacky 2.50 DH casing front, Maxxis Minion SS Exo TR 2.30 rear, both folding bead Weight: approx 14,5 kg

@sherbet: http://recyclenation.com/2010/11/comparing-steel-aluminum-recycling Just a random bit on steel vs aluminium recycling. Turns out aluminium is easier to recycle and the process consumes less recourses, including petrol and energy. Steel is a bitch to recycle environmentally speaking but is still more recycled - think cars, home appliances, etc.

@gbcarmona: Again, this is the matter of opinion. I've read some reviews of titanium frames and apparently they tend to have an awful lot of flex in them, but I've never owned one so can't say from the experience.. I wouldn't say that bike weight has anything to do with its 'nervousness', at the end of the day your bike doesn't ride on it's own but with you on it! If it feels sketchy, dial your suspension in..

@vinay: I get what you're saying and I think you're right with some of it, but we talking full suspension bikes. They are heavier than hardtails, road or trekking bikes as it is, due to having shocks, linkages, etc. Add steel frame and you get trail bike weighing close to some DH heavy hitters. I will disagree with your last sentence - weight can be perceived as one of the primary criterion when choosing the bike for many people, me being one of them. I survive climbs just to have fun on descends, so anything that can help me with saving my legs up that hill is more than welcome. And finally I can't think of any pro riding steel frame nowadays, and they do some crazy times on those trails!

@aoneal: There are those French Burldogs. Although don't look like heavy-hitters, they are very versatile thanks to adjustable geometry - just need to feed them more than you should to increase their diameter, then they roll exceptionally well when pushed down the hill... (just kidding, don't neg me! I wouldn't do any harm to those cute little doggies...)
