    mountain bike.... used


    Looking for a hard tail 26, 27 or even 29.
    Needs to be "economically priced"

    Will be a back up/ buddy bike. Looking for more recent tech/ bike say 7 yo max
    Budget max 400$ ideally 300

    Needs: front air shocks 100 mm travel , Hard tail, mid level components, disc brakes, the air spring forks i can be swayed and deal with springs depending on features lockouts etc

    Could be talked into one that needs minor work ( fork seals, new cassette etc...)

    Re: mountain bike.... used

    What size frame?

    I have a XL Cannondale F5. I think it's an 09.

    Fairly new Conti xking 2.4s
    Newer sdg Bel air seat
    Front derailleur eliminated 4 months ago
    Rear derailleur upgraded to it
    Rear shifter upgraded to it
    Rear cassette upgraded to 11-40
    New front chain ring - also have another smaller one also new
    New seat post

    I'd say around 40 miles since most parts were replaced.mountain bike.... used-img_20190412_064223-jpg

    Looking for $350.

    That's tempting, I'm actually looking for a bike since mine got stolen 2 years ago, but I rarely find the bigger frames for sale.
