Well, this has been an absolute clusterf**k.

Purchased three days before the Adventure Park burned down.

Not sure what year of frame, possible 2012. Medium.

Assuming it would only be a matter of weeks before re-opening, I kept myself busy by fully stripping her down, bearings removed at the bike shop, the frame professionally acid stripped and powdercoated and a new set of bearings from Shockcraft NZ installed by the bike shop.

Bike was reassembled then serviced at bike shop and a new chain has been fitted.

Rear brake lever was feeling average even after a bleed (front brake had never had the hose shortened, so this has been done and it has been bled) so is being rebuilt today as fresh internals just turned up at shop from Worralls. Brake pads have plenty of meat left.

Wheels are true, bearings good, and spoke tension has been measured and is within acceptable tolerance front and rear.

Fork seals are good. Headset good.

Bottom bracket has minor play, but is acceptable for chairlift runs!

All in all, is now a well-sorted DH rig for the next season.

Sram Zee derailleur, Sram guide RSC brakes, coil Boxxer fork, zee cranks, no-name chain guide, unsure of brand of rims, but are on factory giant hubs.

Front minion DH front and rear. Near new.

Currently stored at bike shop, inspection welcome. Just took a quick photo at lunch while it's hanging on the wall!

Oh, have a sticker kit from ebay on the way.

Selling as have gone with a dirt bike for winter activities instead!

Receipts for everything, and you are more than welcome to talk to the mechanic/bike shop that has done the work.
