    For the tourers amongst us I have this absolutely superb Giant Expedition. It is in great condition with just a few minor scratches here and there but from a few feet away it looks new. Beautiful.
    Size is 53cm ct x 55cm cc.
    The frame is 4130 Chromoly which is a well respected frame material and still used extensively by Surly, easily on par with 531st imo. It has all the touring braze ons for mudguards, racks, lock, dynamo, neat little chainstay protector. It's great, I love it.
    It has a high spec from BITD which will still serve you well even now.
    I would like £275 posted for this which includes £250 insurance or £260 collected.
    Full spec:
    Frame: Giant Expedition - 4130 Chromoly - touring geometry
    Fork: Giant 1020 High Manga

    We got pretty much the same rules here. If you would like to read them :laugh:

    "The CycleChat classified forums are offered as a free service for members to buy, sell, trade and barter between each other.

    To help avoid disputes, post editing is turned off in classifieds. If you need to edit an advert, please use the Report Post feature (red triangle) to tell the Admin team what needs changing and we'll sort it out for you.

    Try to put a guide price on items you are offering for sale. If you don't have a fixed price in mind, ask for offers around a guideline figure. This is very helpful to prospective buyers and reduces "How much?" type posts and PMs.


    Please also take note of the following when using the classifieds:

    * Don't offer anything obscene or illegal - use your common sense.
    * Commercial postings and advertisements are not permitted.
    * Posting details of items you are selling on internet auction sites is not permitted.
    * Please do not bump your advertisements.
    * Stick to discussing the items being offered. Off-topic posts will be removed.
    * CycleChat has no control over buyer or seller, does not get involved in any transactions, and doesn't hold any personal contact details for any forum members. With this in mind please be careful how you conduct your transactions.
    * We reserve the right to remove any listings at our sole discretion without notice.

    If you are selling your items on other non-auction web sites too, such as another cycling forum, please mention it in your CC advert. "

    Ah Man! I'm breaking rules everywhere I go! All I wanna do is sell my bike....

    My advert on LFGSS is now locked so that I may advertise it elsewhere due to lack of interest on there, however it is also listed on BikeRadar and Retrobike.

    My aplogies for breaking your rules too! Hope that is ok now.

    All you need to do is tell other CC'ers about other places where you are advertising your item/s.

    You've done that now ... :tongue:
