Commencal Absolut SX slope style / free ride bike, size long. 9 speed custom build project with top spec components. Near New condition!
Would make a great free ride / mini DH bike for adults, or a capable trail centre / DH bike for the shorter rider or youngster starting out. I'm 6' 2" and still find it easy to ride on most trails! Its nimble, light yet solid and will handle all but the roughest of DH trails. With the geared set up it can be pedalled up hill too! Or changed into a single speed bike for dirt jumping: as you like.
£1,250 (ono) as its in great condition; many main parts are almost new. No dents or large scratches. NO marks at all on sanctions of forks or shock! Only a few small wear marks to the frame / fork lowers, as you would expect to get on a used MTB bike, most of these are from being transported on my car rack.
I have only ridden this bike approx 10 times!
All in fully working condition. Only selling as I don't get the time to use it anymore as my family has expanded recently.
To build up a new bike with this spec it would cost you over £3,600!!!

I will also include the unused drop out adaptors that came with the frame kit should you wish to change the bike to a single speed. Likewise the original Commencal saddle and seat post.
I have owned all parts of this bike from new. Those listed as "used" have come off another bike of mine to facilitate this build and as such are more used. The other parts listed have seen very little use. Never crashed, never raced, never jumped high or ridden in heavy wet conditions and only been ridding on medium grade (orange & red) trails at Glentress.
Professionally built and serviced.
