Frame: Hard Tail 29r XC

About: I'm selling because I am now more involved with my LBS race team and I really can't ride this frame any more.  I had this setup with a 120mm fork to slack it out to 68.5 and it acts like an trail hardtail in that configuration.  This bike climbs extremely well and has surprisingly fun manners at speed.  Geometry wise, it's a near nockoff of a scott spark.

This particular example is in awesome shape and only has a small nick in the top tube from a low speed crash.  Nick is shown in photos and Is only cosmetic.

Fork: Rockshox Recon Gold RL 29 - Heavily Upgraded (Revelation/SID parts)
Steer Tube Size: 7-7/8"
Travel: 120mm (I can change it to 100-110 or leave at 120)
Axle Size: 100x15 Axle Size
About: This fork has been completely torn down and rebuilt with all upgraded components.  The compression damper from the recon has been replaced with the compression damper from the revelation rct3.  The rebound damper is the blackbox motion control unit from the SID RCt3.  The air spring cap has been replaced with the cap from the revelation to allow the use of volume reducing tokens. 

This fork is honestly amazing.  It's brick shithouse reliable and the performance is as good as any of the rockshox 32mm forks prior to the new charger damper SID.  If you're looking for something light for your trail or XC bike, then this is an amazing fork.
