I’ve had this Blue large transition frame from new where I have heli taped as much of the frame as I could. I have left some of the protection on which you can see in the pictures. There are some pieces where the dirt has stuck to the plastic protection.
The frame has served me well costing £1200 when I purchased it. It has been the perfect all round frame where I left it in the 100mm mode and shredded everything from downhill to bmx tracks. The RP23 has lock out and different compression settings so you could even use it for cross country with a nice dropper seat post in.
It includes a tapered Cane Creek Headset which cost me £80 and was fitted and forgotten as it performs amazingly.
Standard 135mm rear wheel spacing, tapered head tube and headset, 31.8mm seat post diameter.
I’ve taken exceptional care of this frame, servicing all the bearings and shock regularly as with the other items I’m selling from this build.
This is a perfect stepping stone from a hard tail to a full suspension bicycle where you can home in all your skills.
From a caring home.

MB UK Magazine Reviews the Double
"The Double feels stable in the air, and you can really whip around while you're up there. It's surprising what you can get away with when you overshoot or come up short on a landing too. If the dirt jumps or BMX track are too wet, then the Double is a great little bike for ragging around the woods on." - Rob (MB UK Magazine)
