Item: Norco Valence 60cm
Location: Adelaide
Item Condition: Excellent working order, hubs repacked four rides ago, very nice bearings. Rear tyre is about 70% worn, maybe replace in 1000km. Some tiny, tiny scratches inside chainstay, as this bike was transported with wheel off and the chain rests against it when no wheel is fitted.

Reason for selling: Stolen and recovered, no damage at all, but now I don't want to see it.

Price and price conditions: $600 with accessories as pictured, neg? what's it worth?

Also has an alligator cable adjuster, because they come in a pack of two, and I put the other on my Scott, I have the Shimano one if you'd like it. Also ultegra hollow pivot on deraliier, as I swapped a Ti one onto the scott too.

Look Keo Max Carbon Pedals, with both grey (float) and black (no float) cleats, pedals are older than rest of bike, but still good as.

Could be a great touring/gravel bike as it has rack and guard mounts, I used it as a 2nd bike for training/rain/whatever. It can fit 28mm tyres with fenders, even bigger without fenders I'd imagine. I have a Syncros 6 degree stem that can be swapped for a more relaxed fit, spacer can also be moved under stem. I also have a Syncros compact 42cm handlebar if you don't like deep drops, I don't really want to fit it for you though, maybe if I'm bored.

I still really like this bike, but had a bad experience and hope someone else can start fresh with it

Zero interest so far. Any advice regarding price/wrong place to sell/hard size is welcome.
When I get time I might put it on other sites, I guess

$250 for frame and fork, with headset?

I just measured the 2000km old chain, 0.75% chain tool only goes about halfway in, and it's about 1mm past the 12" mark on a ruler. About 0.5% wear I figure, that's about half way to it's replacement at 1%.
The chainrings, shifters and cables are 2000km old too. The cassette, dérailleurs, wheels and tyres are 5000km old.

That's a hell of a bike for bugger all cash. I'd be straight onto that if the finance permitted. :/
