Hi,

I'm selling my Rockrider 8.1. This is from Decathlon's 'performance' range, and is aimed as a cross-country style bike. Decathlon provide fantastic value for money, and I've loved this bike. It's light enough (for me) to use as a general commuter, but also to throw around Cannock happily. It's an XL. I'm six foot with long legs, and you can see the saddle has plenty of height in it.

It retails at £589, though currently on sale for £499. I'm looking for £350 ish.

Shimano Deore Chanset, Xram X7, Avid Elixir BB3 hydraulic Disc Brakes, handlebar lock-out etc. It has it's far share of marks from general usage, and form carrying locks etc, but still looks wonderful. It turns heads as I ride it down the road! I'm selling as my needs and finances have changed (I've changed cities, jobs, commutes, terrain and income!). Specs below, any questions, please just ask.

Cheers, Steve
