For Trade (or FS): Identiti Exorcist - Top Spec Mountain Bike - Excellent Condition

Had this bike up for sale before but I've decided to see if anyone is interested in trading for something of equivalent value.

This is an Identiti Exorcist which I custom built myself. As you can probably tell from the photo it is more for someone who does more extreme riding (as opposed to just nipping down to the shops!) so hopefully there are some bike enthusiasts on HUKD! I built this bike up from scratch over a year ago and it has been sat in my garage ever since. Everything on it is in excellent nick, and quite a few of the parts are brand new (e.g. gearset, tyres...). Since I built it it has been ridden no more than 2 or 3 times so it is in top condition.

Here are the specs:

- Identiti Exorcist frame w/ Stratos TR-1 shock
- Marzocchi All Mountain 3 forks w/ 150mm of travel
- Wheels - Hope Pro2 hubs on Tioga DH rims
- SRAM X-9 rear mech and shifters
- F&R Hayes HFX-MAG hydraulic disk brakes
- FSA X-Drive Cromo chainset (I also have a brand new 24/7 chainring which I never got round to putting on)
- 24/7 Pro bar and stem
- Ringle Moby seatpost and Tioga saddle

If you know anything about bikes you'll realise that these are quality parts (RRPs of everything totals ~£2000).

I'm still open to cash offers around the £800 mark as an alternative to a trade, and I'll also consider a trade + cash.

Cheers,
Matt

P.S. I'm in the Derby area if viewing is required (also regularly in Loughborough)

#5
Thanks for that hu5tler, funny cause i've been out today on a specialized bike at work for the first time found it to be quite nice so would be interested in what you think also what about this bike seems excellant for the price....?

#6
Hu5tler you about to explain about the bike thing or is their anybody else who would like to offer some advice........?
#7
right guys and girls my search is nearly done on the mountain bike front i've narrowed it down to these two..........
http://www.dalescycles.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=SPECHARDROCKSPTD07
or
http://www.ashcycles.com/power/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=371¤cy=BP
But for the second one i,ve been told it will be a extra £24 to assemble the bike and sent taking it to over £230 so what do people think shall i put the extra for the first bike.....?
#8
sorry for the late reply.

Out of the above choices i would go for the specialized instead. First reason never been on a dawes bike or never new the company existed lol, also specialized are more reliable and parts are easier found. The other thing is that once you have a specialized your going to have to purchase a decent lock as these bikes are targeted to be stolen a lot.

Hi Paul. Sorry for the slow response also.

I agree that the Specialized is probably the one to go for. I'm slightly out of touch now, but it looks like a very good deal. Gets a good review too:

http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/category/bikes/mountain/product/hardrock-sport-disc-9295

I'd be inclined to spend that little extra and go for the hyraulic disc version (not a big fan of mechanical ones). Dale cycles have it for £329 which is also a good price, but they appear to only have the 13" and 15" frame sizes. I guess you could always upgrade to hydros if you wanted.

Hope that helps. :thumbsup:

Lol, well, Dawes are a famous British bike company with 60+ years trading history http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dawes for a start! As for 'parts are easier found', well I don't get that. Apart from the frame and forks, all parts on a modern bike are very standardised. All gears and brakes made will fit any bike (with V or disc mountings depending on which you prefer) as will saddle, wheels, chain, pedals etc. The only things that may differ are the headset, seatpost, bars, and stem- all of which come from one of a small number of different sizes, all of which even a very average bike shop will have in stock. The only thing i'm really aware of being different is the bottom bracket- if you spend a couple of grand on an Italian racer, the thread might be different. From budget MTB to budget MTB, they'll be the same.

As for the two bikes, there isn't much between them in terms of spec. Both are halfway decent and would take a bit of a flogging in the woods, both prob weigh a fair bit, so it's down to what colour you prefer and if you think budget Shimano brakes are better than budget Tektro ones! It's probably worth asking the company selling the Specialized bike if they put it together before sending as i'm guessing they wont- it'll come direct from the factory with a couple of alan keys. If you've ever tried to set up a set of disc brakes by yourself, you'll know its not bloody possible. The Dawes bike, set up and ready to ride, will save a trip to your local bike shop to get them to set it up- unless you're mechanically minded that is.

The essential difference between these two is like comparing a ford fiesta and a Peugeot 106- two small cars, very little between them (ie both prob built in a factory in Taiwan) so it depends on which brand you prefer.

Thanks to all of you for your advice but earlier today before i went to work (not long got home) i ordered the specialized bike as it is suppose to come ready assembled and the company selling the dawes wanted a extra £24 to send it assembled so it made the difference only £30 i ordered it in blue and the 21" frame as i'm 6ft 3in and it recommened this for 6ft 1 to 6ft 5,
Also what swung it was the last two days i've been out on a specialized bike at work as my job has them and found them to be ok..... Also went out on a silver today (not the best colour black look good in them) so glad i got blue..........
#12
Think you've made a good choice there mate. I agree Dawes have been around for ages, but then again so have Raleigh - doesn't mean I'd go for either of them though! :thumbsup:

Specialized as far as I am aware have a much better reputation with the 'enthusiast', whereas Dawes tend to aim more at the lower end.

As BillyX says though, for £300 your not gonna see a massive difference between the two frames so it's down to personal prefs. I have also heard good things about Specialized's customer services should you have any problems...

i had a greyish specialized rockhopper which used to take brake fluid it was one nice comfty ride.
