Here we have my Vitus Escarpe 290. Selling as I have recently purchased another bike which is getting more use. I live in London, and sadly I don’t have the time or space to make use of more than 1 full suspension bike. I have upgraded a lot of parts on it, below is the full spec of the bike as it stands now. The bike has cost me nearly 4x the asking price, and with the upgrades it is riding better than it originally was. This is a great bike for the price, with most of the receipts I’m sure can be dug out if needed. Frame: Hydroformed 6061-T6 Aluminium Frame Forks: RockShox Pike RCT3 solo, 140mm – serviced July 2017 Shock: RockShox Monarch RT3 Debonair 190x51 Chainset: FSA Comet MegaExo Bottom: Bracket FSA MegaExo (BSA) Shifters: Shimano SLX SL-M670 Front Derailleur: Shimano Deore FD-M616 (removed, installed an oval single ring), the derailleur included separately Rear Derailleur: Shimano SLX RD-M675 (brand new, ridden about 50 miles on it) Cassette: Sunrace 10speed 11-42 Chain: KMC X10 Rims: Easton EA70 XL Disc 29” Front Hub: Easton XR - 6 Bolt Rear Hub: Easton XR - 6 Bolt Tyres: Maxxis High Roller (front) and Maxis Ardent (back) (both used, but have lots of life in them) Front Brake: Tektro Augura Hydraulic Disc Rear Brake: Tektro Augura Hydraulic Disc Handlebars: Superstar Collective 780 Stem: Vitus Headset: FSA Orbit 1.5 Zero Stack Saddle: Vitus Seatpost: Vitus Alloy Seatclamp: Alloy QR The bike was recently stripped and inspected for any damage before sale (none), which is why the cables are a little messy in the photo’s, but nothing a couple of cable ties can’t fix. The bike is in a great condition, with only minor paint chips in the usual areas to be expected of any mountain bike. It is always cleaned after rides and kept inside. Also it has been serviced by Soho Bikes (London) annually, most recently in July 2017. I record every ride and I know that it has done exactly 1,400 miles, most of it on single tracks (similar to the likes of Swinley and Wyre Forest) so a great saving to be had for a short travel 29er.
