Origin8 XL Single Speed Mtb - $350 (Whittier)

bicycle type: mountain
frame size: XL
wheel size: 29 in
bicycle frame material: aluminum
brake type: disc (mechanical)
condition: good
make / manufacturer: Origin8
Used this bike as a single speed mtb for a few seasons, but I don't ride as much now and more recently it's been used as an around-town and winter commuter. If you wanted to take it back on the trails, you'd want to upgrade the current rear wheel, which is something I've been tempted to do, but I'm not riding as much these days so can't justify it.

Overall it's a super efficient and rigid frame, with nice burly 29" wheels for crushing up the local trails and hills. It's got mechanical disk brakes front and back with plenty of life to them. I've got a spare cog for the rear wheel that makes it a better climber as well (if you want it for trails), and it's pretty easy to swap out.

I threw a Rockshox Reba on it a few years ago and there are no scratches and the fork has relatively few miles on it.

Both wheels are tubeless-compatible but I got lazy and put a tube in the rear wheel when I swapped it.
