The last thread got a bit busy so I'm starting again, got some new things on the wishlist now:

Item: medium xc/trail dual suspension frame or complete bike
Location: Narre Warren
Price range/Willing to Pay: ~$200 for a frame to maybe $500 for a bike
Extra Info: for those that remember, I found a bike for a mates son, then he wanted one so I built him a ripper bike, then his wife wanted in and i found her a bike. Now he wants to complete the set and get his daughter riding. Nothing rowdy required, just something that'll be relatively comfy on easy xc rides. I've got a pile of parts here I can use to build up if you have a frame for me.


Item: Kona unit large. Complete or frame only.
Price range/Willing to Pay: found!!


Item: 27.2 dropper, any drop, any brand considered. Must be external routing, a brand X would be ideal (I'd get one new but they're out of stock at the moment)
Location: nazza
Price range/Willing to Pay: $150?
Extra Info: I have a 31.6 150mm Thomson stealth dropper or a 31.6 ks lev DX 125mm for swaps

Item: another dropper, external or even considered, 120 to 150mm, 30.9
Location: nazza
Price range/Willing to Pay: $150
Extra Info: I have a 31.6 150mm Thomson stealth dropper or a 31.6 ks lev DX 125mm for swaps




Item: cane creek db air inline 200x51 OR DVO
Price range/Willing to Pay: found - looking again - $300ish?
Extra Info: My DB inline is squeaking. i can send it off to get serviced and almost everything replaced to turn it into a new DB air, or i can buy something else. i'm sold on the CCDB, but curious about what a DVO could do for me. if you've got either let me know :D

Item: DH Forks
Location: nazza
Price range/Willing to Pay: found, just need to visit moorey

Also more than happy to swap for a medium Bighit frame that just won't work for her.


Item: Kona unit 27 plus, large
Location: narre
Price range/Willing to Pay: $ you tell me
Extra Info: still want one, prefer a complete bike, would be ace if it's got suspension up front because I'm soft.

Item: ks lev dropper. 150mm, 31.6
Location: nazza
Price range/Willing to Pay: $200?
Extra Info: I have a Thomson stealth dropper on one bike, I prefer the ks on my other. Happy to swap plus cash your way...



Item: cane creek db air inline 200x51
Location: narre
Price range/Willing to Pay: $300
Extra Info: gave my old one to wifey, suffering regerts now. Happy to swap plus cash for my monarch plus.

I know it's over budget but MTB direct have the 2018 CC IL on sale for $499 this way wifey would get a brand new one and you would get your old one back... Win win :D

I see you've experienced wifey economics before too

It's a consideration, thanks for the heads up

You want a stealth Lev, yeah?
Should have mentioned this. Prefer the collar mount but I'll accept either. The spider can do internal but I don't like it, collar mount is the right way of doing it, everyone else is wrong

Cool...and you’re committed to 150mm?
It’s just I have a 125mm external Lev that’s going to waste at the moment.

Did they make them with different length lowers? It's not the drop that's a concern so much as the overall length. It's for my spider which I like a seat riiight upside my bum when I ride

It's possible I can do the 125 on my tracer and move the 150 onto the spider I'll ponder a little

Congrats on the dh bike, it looks sweet. What 40s are they? Should have something written on them.
Took it for a quick spin at lysty today, it's no xc bike

Nothing on the crowns or new lowers, but he gave me the old lowers as well. Rc2 / fit / factory series if any of that is useful...

Extra Info: still want one, but ive decided my priorities have changed. happy to take a 29er model as long as its the one with ZS44 lower headset so i can run tapered forks if i want.
I was going to buy this but stuff happened over Christmas and turns out I spent a lot of money maintain my fleet. Buy it so I don't have to.
