I'm new to the forum, but have been reading for a while!

I just bought a 2nd hand Claud Butler Trail Ridge, it will be used for fun and some excercise!

It has the following spec;

17" AL7005 alloy series frame
SR Suntour XCR lockout front fork
New Prologo grips
New Sram narrow chain
New head set bearings fitted
New bottom bracket with red anodised cup fitted
New 4 x v-brake pads.
New Jagwire gear cables
New Shimano Alivio rear mech
New Shimano 3 speed shifter
Oversize handle bars
New Shimano 7 speed cassette
2 x New Schwalbe tyres
New Quando rear wheel
Post Moderne Suspension seat post

I paid £100 and I really don't know if that's good value for money or not, but it has been set up perfectly and all worked great on my 1 hour ride this afternoon. I didn't know if it was a good or bad sign having so many components changed!

The only poor point I have noticed so far is the front wheel has a slight buckle which rubs on the front brakes a touch.

Also the rear V brake is a different make, its 'bikehut' whereas I think the front was 'Promax'.

It's my first bike since I was a teenager.
