Wtd: Mountain Bike

#1

OK, I’m too heavy (fat), I drink waaay too much and I’m far too sedentary.

My father died of a heart attack in his early 60’s and unless I do something about it, that’s exactly where I’m heading. Grim ain’t it ?

I very much enjoyed cycling in my 30’s, so a great place to start.

Anybody have a half decent MTB that would suit a 6’ 3", 33" leg fairly hefty bloke that they would like to sell ?

Think of it not so much as losing a bike as saving (putting through hell) a fellow AA wreck.

Where are you based Mike ?

Luton, mate.

I might have the very thing but it would need an AA taxi to get it to you unfortunately.

#5

We could probably get that arranged Allan.

I would happily front up some record / beer tokens if somebody could help out.

It’s a Klein Attitude Comp similar to this.

It does need a proper service as I never got round to it; so factor that in to the equation - maybe about £150 as the suspension forks need serviced as well.

You’ll also maybe want to change a few things as your taller than me at 5’10" but it will fit you as the guy I bought it from was the same height as you.

I bought it last year as a bit of an impulse buy to run about on but not really using it and it is a waste as it’s a belter.

I’ll get some pics posted up tomorrow if your interested.

I’ll look into it Allan, but certainly interested.

If I did that, you would find it VERY difficult to differentiate me from a Manitou :smile:

If it wasn’t for cycling, I would be morbidly obese, hypertensive and probably a lot more stressed.

Same here Gareth.

Since buying the road bike in 2012 I’ve lost nearly five stone without any change in diet. I’ll never be skinny but feel pretty good for a middle aged cunt.

Already fitted with slicks so perfect for the job I reckon. I used a mtb for riding to work fitted with slicks.

Almost a shame to use such a nice bike for commuting though…

A mate of mine has a bike shop in Surrey, I know he’s got an ex-hire Cube Aim (£399 don’t think they get used much) in XL that they’re doing for £275. Message me if that’s of interest and I’ll put you in touch.

Mrs has just picked up a new bike and I’ll be moving hers on shortly, shame, you’d need to be a foot shorter!
