Raleigh XXIX PRO 29er Mountain Bike, Size Large. Legendary Reynolds 853 steel frame with beautiful curved chain and seat stays. This is the same frame that Raleigh used on its $4,200 retail build (see link below). The high end steel forks are made by Vicious Cycles and cost $275. They are custom drawn True Temper steel blades and have an amazing ride quality.The componets were all hand selected for this build based on quality and durability. The entire bike is near new and has less than 300 miles on it except for the brakes and rear tire that were used on a previous build. The frame is a really cool olive green with subtle decals. It is in excellent overall condition with very few small scratches, mostly on the drive side chain stay. There are absolutely no dents or dings. There is a reflective Santa Cruz sticker on the right seat stay for visibility (it is not covering any scratches). I took plenty pictures so you can see the overall condition for yourself. It is currently set up 1x9 speed but can easily be converted to 2x9 or 3x9 by adding a front derailer and additional front chain ring(s). I will include a new Sram X7 front shifter in the auction. The Crank Brothers candy pedals are NOT included in the auction but are available for an additional $20 (with cleats) to the winner. See component list below for build details.

This bike is a blast to ride and gets tons of looks and comments on the trail.

Reynolds said the following about the 853 tube set:

The ultimate performance tube set. The Reynolds 853 tube set has been our No.1 for the performance rider ever since it's launch in 1995. Reynolds 853 offers uncompromising performance combined with superb ride quality and excellent strength to weight ratio. The strength to weight ratio equals that of Titanium frames.
After the frame is constructed, 853 actually increases in strength as the frame cools (air hardening).
The unique air hardening properties of 853 provides additional stiffness through reduced micro yielding at the joints, allowing stiffer frames with higher fatigue strength.
