2 frames up for sale today. First is my cross frame as unfortunately I won't have time to race this winter, and in Spring I'll be doing some short tours so its time to prioritise my kit. It's a Kona Major Jake scandium frame, Edge (now ENVE) composites fork, FSA headset and Kona seat collar. this is a super light race frame that was issued to the Kona FSA team, and used by Helen Wyman. Effective top tube is 54cm. takes 27.2 seatpost, standard British thread BB. I purchased it here 2 years ago, and of that I spent a year travelling, so I haven't used it a whole lot. Really can't justify having such a fantastic frame sat around while I'm off travelling again!
the good: super light weight, race proven frame. Raced at world level, Wyman used this to take a British national championship! Overall very fine condition considering professional use. Fork alone is worth £400! Headset was replaced not long ago and feels like new.
the bad: some wear on the drive side chainstay, as to be expected. One of the downtube cable adjusters has snapped and I've not been able to remove it. However I've found it fine to just use it as a cable stop for the rear derailleur, which has its own barrel adjuster (this is how I've been using it since purchase 2 years ago).
I'm looking for £350 for the frame, fork, headset, seat collar and canti hanger. I can also throw in some tektro cr720 canti brakes.
Next up is a beautiful Aende frame which I suspect was built for time trial use. It was sold to me as a 53 but the top tube is closer to 55cm. Braze ons for rear derailleur only (no front cable routing). I'm unsure of the tubing but it's most likely Columbus SL. takes a 27.2 seatpost, English BB and standard 1" threaded headset. It has excellent drilled lugs all round, right up to the seat collar. Paintwork is not perfect, there are small chips on the main tubes, wear on the driveside chainstay, and marks from a band on cable guide near the BB. Again, hasn't had much use as its been in storage since since leaving for Australia 18 months ago. Frame and fork (no headset), I'll include a band on cablestop for stis/ergos. Considering the condition, I'm after £150
Finally I have a pair of Mavic Aksium wheels in overall good condition. Fantastic training wheels with bladed spokes. Bearings are smooth, wheels are true and there's plenty of life left in the brake surface. Shimano fit, QRs included. £80
All items near Swindon. I have the Kona boxed and ready to post, and I can organise a box for the Aende and wheels.
