Gunnar Ruffian 29er Steel Singlespeed, 19" Now £350

I am selling my single speed, advertised here first as I think it would make a good bikepacking bike.

Gunnar Ruffian 29 steel frame, True Temper OX Platinum labeled with Paragon sliding dropouts, think it is about 6-7 years old.
Size is not marked but is around a 19", I am 6ft with a 32" inside lag if that helps.
There is a scrape on the top tube from the bars, along with a few small stone chips that you would expect from a used bike.
There is also a sticker on the top tube covering up another mark.
Fork is a Salsa Cromoto rigid, with a Race face Deus headset.

Wheels are Hope Pro 2 single speed hubs on Salsa Delgado rims. Tyres are Bontrager 29x2.0 Mud X.
I have been asked about wheel clearance for 29+ tyres. At the front there is room as the fork gap measures 3.5".
The rear measures 2.75", so I would recommend up to a 2.5 to leave a bit of clearance.

SLX crank with Salsa 32 tooth single speed ring, 19t Surly cog.
Deore disk brakes
Thomson Elite seatpost, Planet X saddle
FSA XC170 stem, 110mm, Easton EA30 bars
No pedals in picture but I have some SPD's here I can put on.

Bike is located in Coed y Brenin, Snowdonia if any one wants a view.

Price £350, plus what it costs to post or deliver.
Think I have covered it all, but feel free to ask any questions.
Thanks for looking
Keith

I don't need a 29er SS as I already have one but that is still quite tempting - a very good price for a very nice bike. Quality frames.

Thanks. It does ride nice, and plenty of space up front for a larger tyre.
I need the shed space and it is not getting ridden so it has to go, but I do keep thinking I might regret it in the future.
