I will keep an eye out for you.

If you have any desire to ride a SS, I have one for you.

While I wasn’t looking for an SS, can you tell me more? It’s not my first choice, because it’ll have to do double duty and pull my daughter to daycare.

Very tempting. It is a beautiful bike with a great color scheme and all. How much would you want for it (with and without dropper post)?
If it is ok with you, I’d probably wait for until the end of December to see if something comes up that has a rear derailleur.

No rush on my end. I am not really trying to get rid of it, so take all the time you want.
I have not really thought hard about a price, but less than your max no doubt.
If you decide you want to go this route I will give it more thought.
My issue - once I put a price on it, I will want to actually sell it.
Right now, I am fine with having it around (it is in my work office) and not taking up space. My SS buddies have all gotten new toys lately and we just haven't been riding these much lately.

No problem, as long as it stays within budget, that's all I need to know for now.
And thanks for being generous on the time line … 😎

I was looking at a MTB my friend wants me to buy at the trail today. A similar height to me, he doesn't have many potential customers!

Another friend wants to sell his L size Merida.

Let me know if you are interested. And the details you want to know.

Cheers, Andy

Price within your budget.


Cheers, Andy

That looks perfect. I assume you have had a look at it and it is in good shape? (I don't expect a detailed inspection, but from your photo it looks like

I had a look at the specs you linked to, and if you friend upgraded the groupset to XTR, that'd be even better. It looks like the bike is set up as 1x, correct (which would be a plus in my book)?

If the bike is in good shape, I'd be happy to buy it off him. Can you ask your friend how much he'd like precisely? I'd be willing to wire the money in advance to his account (I have accounts with JPost, Mitsubishi Tokyo UFJ, Mizuho) and have it shipped by a specialized company (I have used www.cycle-seino.jp twice, and the service was absolutely perfect). It goes without saying that shipping cost (about ¥8,000–9,000 I think) would of course be on top of the asking price, i. e. borne by me.

I'm sure it is in very good condition as he takes good care of his bikes.

He said almost all XTR components.

I'll ask him for an exact price.

For delivery, one idea is to take it to the CX race at Fukushima airport on December 26th.

3h for us, 2h for you.

You could even ride the course!

Regarding the condition, I thought as much. In the photo the bike looks pristine.

In principle, I like the idea of meeting in the middle. But we have a newborn at home and I don't think my wife is so hot about the idea. But if that's a condition for the purchase, I can ask my wife tomorrow and check back with you.

Not at all, I was just thinking of saving postage for you, but once you add up highway fees and gasoline, it's probably easier just to send it.

Sorry, there was no announcement yet, I just mentioned it in a few posts. I have been quite busy with stuff, so I didn't have time to make a thread. But everyone is healthy, and my wife quite happy. Today my mother-in-law is coming. We haven't seen her in over 2 years. Fortunately, she'll stay in a hotel, because our apartment is too small.

He even replaced the fork in 2018 and put new tires on! Carbon bar, carbon seat post, 1x, this is really a good bike.

We have a deal. Just pm me his details. In case he prefers, he can get in touch with me directly, too. (I do speak Japanese.)

I just sent your friend an email. I’m sure it’ll go smoothly. Thanks for keeping an eye out, I will give Umiguchi-san’s bike a good home.

One more quick question: do you happen to know if the bike has through axles? I’m asking because if it does, I’ll have to order a through axle adapter for my bike trailer.
