Very good condition. Frame has a few minor paint scuffs from use.
Bought as new from previous owner. I’ve used it for a recent bikepacking trip to Wales and in local forest trails. Total miles done approx 250.
The best points IMO for this bike are the steel frame which is very responsive and the big plus sized tyres which you can run at a variety of pressures. The SRAM drivetrain ensure smooth gear shifting and brakes offer good performance.
Reason for sale - frame is slightly too small for me, hence the long stem which could be replaced for a shorter one. The bike’s original spec is a 90mm stem.
I am 6 foot 2 with 34 trouser leg. Although this frame is an XL there is also an XXL which is the equivalent of 22 inch. I’m often on the borderline between the two frame sizes.
This frame suits bikepacking - check the geometry against the much more expensive - Surly Bridge Club, Ogre or ECR 27.5 (https://surlybikes.com/bikes).
It also has mounts for bikepacking bags. See the spec below.
