Dosnoventa Houston size 54

DOSNOVENTA FRAME AND FORK - Asking price: 700

Hi, I have for sale my mint condition size 54 Dosnoventa Houston in raw aluminium with green decal custom paint job & New Dosnoventa full carbon fork with hidden drill hole and compression plug.

Cost of these items new is apx 1000 plus shipping and not to mention the waiting time!
Receipt included, plus certificate of lifetime guarantee with Dosnoventa.

Also comes with:

-Unused, new integrated seat clamp with spacers [came with frame].

-Columbus integrated tapered headset [less the crown race, this is remains on the Enve disc fork used with the frame].

-FSA SL-K integrated seatpost [bought for 50 new].
About a 3cm accurate cut was made to the frame seat tube and I never needed the spacers, but they are of course included. There is 16/17cm of seat tube above the top tube, plus the seat clamp height and any spacers you want to use. I'm 6' 1" and a half, fyi.


I work near St Pauls, so happy to meet near there. Cheers

Very nice, tempted How did you find it for size, you seem pretty big for a 54? I'm 5 10.

A little more info. There are 2.5 cm of FSA spacers, and 3cm of the ones with the clamp which came with the frame. Gonna try to add these pics now, hope I am allowed. Ps. The bb centre to saddle rail , following the seat tube, is just over 75cm.
Cheers

I'm fairly well proportioned I guess, but I rode with a longer stem than some favour, a race face dues, 9cm.

I'll also get some wheels on there to measure up the step over height. Sorry I overlooked that one. Will get that info up asap.

more pics

Sorry, this is the best I have from when it was built up. No tires on, sorry.


I never really photographed it as was, should have though :-/


It does offer an indication of top tube step over height, saddle height and general look though.

None, my mechanic did a sweet estimate, keeping as much tube as poss.


Here's some pics of the spare fsa spacers and the clamp which came with frame.

Hey Master, not sure there's any more detail really. To be clear, the spacers were not used on the seat tube, I used a fair few on the steerer, cos of me old back ;-)

Guys, the chap i sold this frame to has failed to convince himself that it fits him, poor guy was in turmoil I suspect.

It's back on sale. Same deal :-)

p.s. sorry to mess you about

some important extra info from the chap refered to above, who describes himself as of T-rex proportions and is 5'9. I hope this helps.

"The geometry on the Dosnoventa website says the top tube is 535mm, but in reality it's 560 or maybe even 565mm. All the other measurements seem right"
