• Started to build this up as a winter trainer but unfortunately I just don't have room to keep it.

    Danish made Principia RSL AS - 7005 Aluminium frame with a brand new Kinesis DC07 Carbon fork which has just been fitted but not yet ridden

    This is a rare variation on the classic RSL frameset that was seemingly only avaible for a short time - it has a slightly shorter top tube, more stack and clearance for 28mm tyres and mudguards. Frame and fork also have mudguard eyelets. In short perfect for winter training. I've left space on the steerer for 30mm of spacers for a more comfortable, stable position.

    Its a really lovely, well made frame, as anyone that has seen a Principia close up will agree. Classic lines with some interesting tweaked tube profiles. Still in the original hard anodized finish, an unusual metallic bronze and is rock hard -only a few superficial marks.

    Also included is the original Principia cartridge bearing headset -supposedly made by Chris King IIRC. Could do with some new bearings, and the lower plastic seal is missing but otherwise working.

    Pretty sure its a 55cm (FYI I ride a 56cm CAAD and this fits me well) - see geometry chart here in the 2004 catalogue:

    £150 for frame and fork. Located in Bristol but can post in the UK at cost.

    Any questions please let me know

    cheers
