For $1500, you will get the Frame, Hope Headset, Paragon Sliders for 142mm rear axle w/ maxle.

Absolutely nothing wrong with the frame, it just isn't seeing the trail time to justify keeping it.
The frame is a size 20". Please see the second link for geometry details.

I am 188cm and I have the saddle positioned neutral, slightly forward and it fits me comfortably. There is a little room to go smaller, and a bit more room to go bigger.

If you need a complete build, that can be arranged as well in several configurations.

That's a horrible photo and what a horrible bike too. I have never wanted this bike.:cry: Damn. you are selling it. I remember dribbling on the keyboard last year when you built it and posted your photos. So sexy. Unfortunately, it won't be mine but I hope it finds a happy home.

I rode it yesterday and it is as kick ass as advertised.
If it doesn't sell, I won't be heart broken. My riding buddies are calling me crazy over selling it and are urging me to sell a steel hardtail if I really need to get rid of one.
BUT - that is the thing, I don't need to get rid of it. I just feel bad looking at this bike daily (my bikes are all kept in my office) and knowing how under-used it it.
Yesterday's ride reminded me of what a rocket it is. It is my best climbing MTB.

Since that other pic was so bad... here is on from yesterday...
