£430 collected or for £450 £480 collected or for £500 I'll deliver within 30 miles of Farnborough, Hampshire, and will include London Waterloo station as well. I can arrange delivery further afield but kind of hoping not to.

Payment by cash, paypal gift or bank tranx please.

So what we have here is a new frameset with some new and some used parts...THERE IS NO SADDLE INCLUDED I AM KEEPING THE BROOKS:-

Frame and forks are new, the steerer tube has been shortened to 265mm, still plenty of adjustment above and below stem
Headset is new, DiaCompe CB2 cartridge in black
Ergo grips and tape over foam is all new
Brake cable inner and outer are new
Chain is new, SRAM PC830 I think with powerlink
Chainset and BB are new - Truvativ Firex 1.1 33t plus bash and the SRAM GXP style BB, I added two Hope BB spacers, 2.5mm each side as it came from a 73mm BB shell bike...as per the Truvativ instructions
The cheap plastic pedals are new if they are wanted
Headset spacers are new
Brand X 120mmx15deg 25.4mm clamp stemp is new
Superstar SS kit with 14t cog is new

Mudguards - SKS are used but in full working order and you can see from the pics I've left them at max distance to allow for full tyre clearance Xcheck is capable of. Points of note though, having previously been on a disc brake bike there is only one stay on the front mudguard non driveside. The rear mudguard also has a hole drilled in it for a previous vertical fitting, this is covered by electrical tape.

v-brake levers - are ok but have been fairly well used

handlebars - are from an old MTB and are the steel ones that curve into bullhornish style at the front...25.4mm clamp

v-brakes - Deore BR M530, used but in excellent condition, they have new Tri compound cartridges as well

seatpost - a bikehut inline 27.2x350 or 400 - has done less than 50 miles on another bike

wheels - are from an EBC courier Race and have less than 1k miles, they are Ritchet 622-18 rims so well able to take tyres up to the Xcheck clearances. The rear did have an 8 speed cassette(which is included if wanted) so bike can be run geared or SS with same wheelset.

skewers - plain silver Shimano ones and pretty tough, I haven't done the rear up supertight and can stand on the pedlas without the rear wheel moving...all 18 stone of me. I have had the 32h wheels trued and also the front has new bearings.

tyres and tubes - standard Marathons in 700x32 and Specialised presta inner tubes in 700x28-38 - none of which has done more than 20 miles...you should be able to see the newness of the tyres from the picutres.

Sorry should have added it's 33x14 SS giving approx 63.7 gear inches and the bits that came with the Xcheck frame, dropout bolts and rear canti hanger are included unused.

Updated pics here:-

Shows the new saddle and I've also swapped out the 33t chainring and bashguard for a 36t middle and 48t outer taken from a new Alivio chainset...so rings are unused. This gives 36x14 SS gearing which should be 69.4 inches with the 700x32 tyres. It also gives a better range if you went 1x8/9 via the 36t and obviously gives you road double setup options as well. Still an SRAM PC850 chain and the 36x14 puts the axle about halfway along the dropouts.

bump for final price reduction and additonal offer.

I need the space so I'll drop this down to £400 collected or £420 posted/delivered. I'll also include and unused pair of Shimano M520 clipless pedals in black.

I paid £348 for the frameset and headset from Charlie the Bikemonger, I think that's still about the best you'd do pricewise.

As it's space rather than money I'm in need of then, if I know you(or have enough knowledge of you), there's the option of up to a year interest free to pay.

Mac, I'm a tad confused. You've got 2 chain rings on the front, but no changer and no chain tensioner. I take it that the bike is still a single speed?

horizontal, forward facing dropouts, it's SS for the 36t ring only. I just bunged the 48t on there as I had it going spare, it means the double chainring bolts fit nicely and it gives someone an option to either run two SS gearings via two chains or they can whack on derailleurs for a good road double.

OK, thanks. I love the look of that and it would be about perfect for my 5-mile flat commute, but I've also got a garage full and a Brompton I need to, but haven't the heart to, sell.

Okay this is still in the garage and really has to go so I'm starting a daily price reduction, the price excludes delivery which I estimate at around £20 so:-

Monday 26/11/12 the price is £359

it is going to drop by £1 per day for however long it takes or until I lose my nerve or get bored....so tomorrow it will be £358, Wednesday £357 and so on....first come first served
