.... and not the gay Lycra road type either!!

Joking aside, in thinking of selling one of my bikes to make more space for car related stuff... Plus since starting my own business last Jan I haven't had chance to get out too much So rqther then going to waste someone may as well enjoy it.... Or make a tidy profit

I'll put full spec/pics up tonight if there's any interest

But it's a custom built Ragley Blue Pig, build cost was £2.5k and it's presently insured for £2.2k

It's dripping with race face, hope, sram x0 and x9 and the forks (revelation xx), seat post (rock shox dropper) and chain set (race face atlas am double and bash) are worth over 1k alone

Like I said I'll put full details up tonight but just gauging interest.... Either way in in no rush to sell just thought it might be a good idea

Bit of info re the frame:

But yeah its def one off, built with all top notch gear, ideal for tearing up trail centres or riding super steep descents, steps, rock gardens etc

I know nothing about bikes but it looks beautiful!!
Cheers pal....tbh i might not even sell it yet.....my misses wants me to get rid, moans that i cant ride two bikes lol but it was my dream build and it would hurt to part....might have to just hide it

on the flip side though I was looking at a significant cosmetic mod for the r and this might help me justify it

Love it mate I just got the comp version as I thought for the price it was ideal to ride as is before upgrading anything. Plus I could really see if I liked the frame before throwing any money at it! I was gonna get the new rival commencal but their frame failure rate kinda put me off that.
