Performer, 700c High Racer, For Sale!

How Do All ;-)

£1,500.00 or very nearest offer!

Here I have for sale my Performer, 700c High Racer. 

Ok so here we are again, yet another machine for sale!
I am selling this Performer 700c High Racer as I have just made another purchase, I just can't help myself, can I? :-D

The bike was built up from a Frame kit in 2015 and is in fantastic condition, with internal cable runs for a clean look and a beautiful Pearl Blue paint finish!

I used the bike for long day rides and planned on using it for light touring with an extra-wheel trailer or credit card touring as the rack allows for plenty of kit to be carried.

I have upgraded the bike buy adding the Tortec rear rack, full SKS mudguards, a new Teracycle idler in the return chain line and stainles steel/Nylatron chain keepers.  
I have also added brand new Jagwire cable housings a new stainless steel inner wires.
the jewel in the crown being a brand new Novosport Carbon fibre seat, this is all carbon fibre and not the Fibreglass with carbon/kevlar top sheets that are sold as carbon upgrades for a premium price by some manufacturers!
The bike also has a Kinesis Carbon fork.

This bike is fully and properly serviced, set up and adjusted and is ready to ride today! with no further tinkering or twiddling needed, unless you want to of course!
