2011 Scott Spark 40 (L)........now with upgraded spec.
2011 Scott Spark 40 (L) was stock spec apart from tyres (now Maxxis ADvantage) + see bold.
Bought Oct 2010 and then not used for 6 months due to knee injury. Not ridden a great deal since (maybe 15 decent rides in last 18 months or so). A few peripheral scuffs/marks and some heel rub on the rear triangle (size 11 feet!)
Rides great but just not getting out much, MTB-wise, since the road bike turned up.
Looking for £900 + p&p(cost £2100 in stock form)

Located in North Leeds area.

It's depressing but if you're that attached to it keep it.
My now antiquated (2010) Trek Elite carbon 26er, Pimped up Pace 100mm Carbon forks, USE carbon Bars/Post, Carbon Stem, Full XTR, ZTR crests Pro 3 XC6 SP hubs, RoRo's, Rotor Cranks 2x9, Eggbeater 4ti, Nokon cables, Elixir Brakes, Alligator discs, mostly titanium bolts. Easily well over a grand over the build cost of that Scott and I'd be thinking in the region of around £8-900...it's worth much more to me sitting up in the attic thinking about it's former glory...every now and then picking it up and going fuck me that's daft.
My girlfriend's 14 year old daughter (who happens to be a serious athlete) has been pestering me to take her out. How do I teach a kid (who doesn't even have the right bike) how to mountain...
