Any tips to help combat cramps? Lots of people say Rennies.

Prevention is better than cure, start by looking at your diet and daily water intake

Hi fellow Wilddogs,

I'm selling a 26er  Kona Abra Cadabra XL (22") frame with Fox CTD Boost Valve and G3 Magic Link shocks. Frame is in excellent condition (small scuff mark on downtube as in pic).
Frame is built with 6069 Scandium tubing (very light for a FS bike) and has modern geometry with a head angle of 67 degrees and 160mm travel. Rear dropouts are 12mm and takes normal 12mm thru-axle.

Excellent bike for enduro or marathon races.

Reason for sale: Wrong size, too big for me.

Price: R3000 onco

Buyer pays shipping costs.

Sale includes Frame, BB, seatpost clamp and shock.
Excludes headset and rear thru-axle (didn't get it with the frame)

PM me for more details.

Thanks,
Dale
Previously owned: Vuka RM200, Aprilia Pegaso Cube 650, Suzuki DRZ400E, Kawasaki KLE500, Suzuki DR350

I've got a dropper post on my 2017 Scott 910 and it works like a charm worth every sent.

Got to agree. Took it for a short test ride yesterday after work. Went down a hill that I had previously ridden with a normal seat post. Huge difference in confidence anx speed

What do you guys think, is this a good deal? What should I look out for if I want to go and have a look at this bike?

Thanks!!

Yeah, I chatted to another forum member here who knows all about Specialized bikes, and I decided not to look at this one.

I'm still hunting for an upgrade from my Vida 4.

What do you thing of this deal? The bike will need tyres and a chain soon and the guy will let it go for R8000 excl the extras? I was thinking more in the line of R7k?
