Orange 5 frame
A well loved 5" trail classic frame, 2006 model. Surprisingly good condition. Not ridden since summer 2011.
Included in this auction:
- Gun metal frame
- Black Race Face Evolve Seatpost (27.2x350 good condition)
Head tube: 119mm
Top tube (length - not horizontal): 22.75 inch - This translated to a 23inch horizontal top tube.
Seat tube (centre to top): 18.25 inch
Original gun metal paint. The frame is surprisingly light, and the bike was used well by me for around a year. Sadly I succumbed to a new project, but really enjoyed the simplicity and performance this frame gave me (7th in Bristol Bikefest).
Paint condition: Overall really very good, close inspection can find the odd scuff or rub (nothing major though), as I've used Lizard skins to protect where possible.
Structure: Good, no cracks or problems, just one small stone ding on the rear wishbone, hardly noticeable. Otherwise A1.
Shock: Answer Manitou 3 way Swinger. Good condition, no air/oil leaks.
I've left the gear cable in-situ as that can be a pain to thread through.
Suspension main pivots: inspected recently and no problems there, they appear in good condition and move freely.
Shock bushings: No play detected there.
Seatpost diameter: 27.2
Headset size: 1.1/8inch
73mm bottom bracket shell
Cage bolts under the top tube
Travel: 5 inches
No reserve - it needs to go to a good home. Works really well with 140 Revelations or similar.
That's about it. Pick up from Bristol if needed.
