The Land Rover Six 50 Seres V has a custom built alloy frame with reinforcing gussets fitted at high stress points and 27.5″ wheels.

The Suntour M3030 forks inspire confidence and allow you to get the most from the Shimano 24 speed gearing.

The Seres V is fitted with Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, which are well known for their reliability and stopping power.

The double wall rimmed wheels are built with 32 spokes for the optimum weight and strength.

The sizing guide for mountain bikes on the Evans Cycles website suggests that a mountain bike with a 20″ frame would suit a rider of height 5’10” – 6’1″ (178cm – 185cm). Note that this is a general sizing guide offered for guidance only and not one specific to the Land Rover Six Fifty Seres V 20″ frame.

Very many thanks to Marcus Jones, Head of Business at Inchcape Jaguar Land Rover Derby who generously donated the bike, and to Brad Parkes of Specsavers Solihull and Solihull Radio. Brad introduced us to Marcus via a live broadcast on Solihull Radio and Geoff O’Brien launched our auction on his show on Solihull Radio on 2 June.
