That maybe very good timing!
After Sundays 6hr at Fowlmead I intend to take mu Spesh Enduro to bits clean it up & flog the frame & shock.
It's a large, it's full suss & it's been brilliant -I'll be sad to see it go TBH.
If it suits your thinking let me know & we'll talk turkey!

Couch? Whats couch? Is that like sofa so good?  Wink


Tinc does look after his gear as Jay says. Always worth taking a look at the frame methinks.

Glad it's gone somewhere it gonna be used properly.

What did the overall build cost you in the end?
It's a good looking build & I get the impression it's sodding good value, thanks to your eBay skills. Wink

Looking forward to seeing you out on the trails on it soon ;D
