Hi all, I'm selling my much loved and under used Trek Slash 9.8 Carbon. Having a 8 month old baby around the same time as buying this bike has meant it's not seen much use. The wheels and tyres have never been used as I had another set of hope enudro tech wheel on the bike (which are also up for sale if anyone would like them). I also had the group set swapped over to Shimano XT 11 speed as my previous experiences with similar sram group sets have been highly dissapointing.
Most of the frame has been wrapped in protective tape.
Other things i've had added to the bike is a Blackspire chain guide with bash, and a side entry bottle cage.

Frame Size is Trek's actual 19.5 (Virtual 18.5) which is classed a large. I'm 6'1 and its perfect for me and will suit riders from 5'10 to 6'3.

Bike condition is great, as i said it's not been ridden anywhere near as much as i would of like to due to my baby taking up sooooooo much of my time. There are a few very small marks on the frame from being loaded into a van/car with other bikes but they have all been touched up.

I'm am willing to ship this bike as long as long as shipping and collection via courier is arranged and payed for by yourself and I'll get the bike boxed up by my local bike shop.

Please, do not message me for any swaps as i will not be interested as this bike needs to be sold.

Retail for this bike is ยฃ4800.00, I'm asking for ยฃ2900.00.
