Nishiki Time trial/ triathlon bike

Tried to sell on ebay, but time of year/day/ the wind/price(?)/size of wheels saw it fail.
Will try on here for a week and if no coin interest, will go for splitting.
Not sure if you can still use 650c wheels in adult categories for Tri but youths & ladies can AFAIK.

Here we have a mid 90s NISHIKI ALTRON NFS triathlon (or time trial) bike with 650c sized wheels. Frame size is approx. 54/55cm. Suitable for 5'7" to 5'10" riders give or take.

Bottom Bracket: 68mm x 112mm unknown square taper

Last price drops.
260 posted by some form of courier. No interest then splitting >>>> No idea if frame on its own would be any use to anyone though? It is sexy light (<4lb with fork & headset) if that helps.

Nope, she's long gone. Was sick light, and quick, but never used it as found out the local TT groups were more up their own arses then thought possible, so stuck with road/mtb instead.
