A sad day where i will be selling my only mountain bike to what is (at least for now) quitting mountain biking as i need the money to fund other activities. Anyway i haven't ridden for a while and this bike since i bought it around 2-3 years ago hasn't had much use to it or the use which it should have had as i have always been a careful rider and only rode in what have been known as quite easy and simple mtb trails such as Penhydd Trail in Afan Argoed and local trails around me, and i have always felt i haven't taken full advantage of the bike as it can do a lot more than i have done with it! Anyway down to the specs (and apologies if some of these specs i word wrongly, i haven't been in touch with the mtb world for a while so have forgotten some terminology!
Planet X Hammerhead hardtail frame
Shimano Deore Lx Groupset with Disc Brakes
Marzocchi Bomber All Mountain 1 suspension fork with ETA, lockout
Bontrager components (Handlebars, seat post, grips)
Planet X stem
Hope headset and seat post clamp
DMR Pedals (I have some old Shimano clipless pedals around too i think too)
CR ?te seat
Mavic X 321 Disc wheels with kenda tyres
Frame size i am unsure on but suits someone who is 5 foot 10 - 6 foot 2 for sure. (So i guess 18 inch)
Anyway hasn't been used too much as i said, so it's in pretty good condition. Photos at Please contact me if you have any questions. I live in Neath, South Wales as well. I might be able to meet somewhere if you live too far from here to warrant coming down for.
This is a really good bike - and i know i'm saying it in my own auction but i have ridden on bikes in the past that are well over £1000 - and i much prefer my Planet X over nearly all of them! As 'Planet X' is not such a known frame make you generally get some huge bargains when buying second hand as people won't find it or won't bother looking at anything more than the title!
The terrain this bike can ride, as said, is also excellent. I generally just did XC (cross country) on it. I'm sure the bike can take much tougher styles of riding then what i did with it! More PHOTOS of the bike are at http://www.freebiehome.co.uk/images/BIKE
Of course as i'm only selling this bike on a local pick up basis, money is best given as cash on the day. I dislike Paypal as they take a large amount of money off you in any transaction and i dislike the company for other reasons too hence why i'm really only asking for cash!
