Thanks mate - you'd struggle to find a decent bike for this price (not a Kmart BSO!).

Open to posting but you'd have to organise the courier (e-go is one people like to use). I can box it all up for the buyer.

Cheers

I have used Couriers Please in the past from www.freight-quote.com.au for a bargain..... 13 dollars to send a frame to northern nsw and 35 to send a full bike from the gold coast to the ACT.....

free bump... I have a blue Yukon (the white one looks much nicer)

Thanks for the advice.

Can you estimate dimensions and weight so I can get a quote for shipping?

Also, do you still have the original fork?

Thanks again.

BUMP - Price = $380

FYI - for those considering postage for this bike...

Thread on bike box sizes: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=58282
115cm long, 79cm high and 27cm wide is a good starting point.

As for weight, i would go with between 10-12kgs. It depends on how much stuff i add and protective packaging i add.

Cheers

Nah sorry mate, long gone. Should be able to pick up a Rockshox Dart 2 (the original fork) on eBay pretty cheaply tho.

Here is Giants MTB size chart:

As you can see the geo is alot different to a road bike. You could probably ride a medium frame with a short stem setup (it has a 90mm stem now).
Depends on alot of things (your riding style, arm/leg/torso length etc) so its hard to say.

You are more than welcome to come test ride if you like :)
