    I have a bunch of 29" tires, the highlites being a set of 2.4 wtb trailbosses with 2 rides, and a never ridden set of schwalbe racing Ralph 2.1's. Some cross tires too. Racing Ralph's, cx mambas, 3 various sets of clements. Take them away.

    *Sigh* You ahole... Where were you a year ago? No idea if it'd fit me, but if I weren't absolutely HEMORRHAGING money right now I'd take that Iron Horse road bike.

    I ride trail bosses and would be interested for myself. Also interested in building up a bike to resell in my spare time.

    It's too small to carry that goatee around.
    50cm is typically 5'2"-5'4", give or take an inch or three.

    I'm interested in the Giant Yukon. Would it be a good platform to convert to an e-bike?

    Re: Cheap/free bicycle stuff

    Hmm. Those old style brakes on the TCR might fit my daughter's bike.. they are the same style except life threatening.. I'll take the bike if you don't want to separate the brakes from it. Unless someone wants the frame..

    Re: Cheap/free bicycle stuff

    Nick has spoken for the giant frame, if he doesn't want the brakes, caloots they're yours.
    I'm way down here in fairhaven Ma. Stuff is either available here, or at work in Plymouth, or just too damn far.

    I'll back off...didn't realize you were that far away. Thanks anyway!

    If anyone else has a cheap entry level mountain bike...I may be interested!

    Re: Cheap/free bicycle stuff

    Bump. Edited the OP.

    So, if anybody wants, I can build up the giant, say if you're in the 5'10"-maybe 6' range with the stuff from the horsey. 9spd triple, oem wheels.
    Price will be $300, only because I have to buy a new front mech (different mount type) and all new cables and bar tape.

    If still available when funds permit, I'll let you know.

    I'm broke as a joke at the moment.
