Withdrawn: 26 Inch Rear Wheel

Note that this is "Withdrawn" so is here for archive purposes only.

Price: 
50.00

I am trying to bring an old Enduro back to life and am in need of a replacement rear wheel. The bike is about a dozen years old and has reached its terminal value so I'm not looking for anything fancy.

It needs to be 26 inch, with a standard QR hub, for a 9 speed cassette and preferably 6 bolt disc mounts. Beyond that, as long as it spins, I'm happy. I already have cassettes and rotors so it is just the wheel that I need.

Someone will have one in their garage. Happy to throw in a case of beer or pay a fair price.

Please PM me if you can help.

Thanks, Mark

Withdrawn: Rockshox SID Forks

Note that this is "Withdrawn" so is here for archive purposes only.

Price: 
0.01

I have a Rockshox SID XX fork free to a good home. Thru axle used for only 1 season, ridden a few hundred km.

This would be for someone who likes fixing stuff, rather than someone looking for a cheap option. I purchased them but could never get them to work properly, and they would seize randomly during races. After 1 year I gave up on them.

So if you are confident at pulling forks apart then they could be a very nice set of forks.

Price: 
3,800.00

Hi all. Its been a while since I have sold a bike on here, but its time to let my beloved Epic race bike go.
First and foremost, this is a bike that has been loved and cared for regardless of cost. I have had two shock shock and fork services done on it and also a full bearing replacement done.
The spec is as follows:

XL S-Works Epic frame, Rockshox SID WC with brain.
Full XX1, brakes upgraded to Guide Ultimate.
Bottom Bracket and Jockey Wheels upgraded to C-Bear ceramic (google them - $$$)
Roval Control SL carbon wheels - no dinks or issues, replaced bearings recently.

Park opposite/beside Terrey Hills shops, corner Booralie Rd/Yulong Ave. Or in the small carpark next to the RFS station & community centre.

Looking for a moderate intensity spin as I try to rebuild some base fitness after a busy period at work, and some ITB niggles that have been limiting my riding since late April.

I'll be riding out from my place near Frenchs Forest East around 0720, along Forest Way and then MV Road to the meeting point if anyone wants to join for some extra K's on the road.

The plan is meet at the RFS and head down Booralie Rd to enter via the Jap School at Echunga Rd to start with and if the trail is dry enough come back via Nerang Rd.
