• Hi fixie skidders,

    My housemate is relatively new to cycling and has only recently realised that there's such a thing as sizes (mostly due to me laughing at him when he picks up a 'bargain' that's four sizes too small).

    So, he's got a couple of bikes to sell to fund a gravel bike that actually fits.

    50cm Silver Cinelli Tipo Pista (2018)

    He bought this off a female friend when she moved to Melbourne. He's 5'10" so obviously it's at least three sizes too small. It's in pretty good nick aside from the usual scratches and scuffs you'd expect from a four-year-old bike. The spec is pretty much stock aside from pedals and bars. The horrific flipped Cannondale stem is my doing; it was a vain attempt to make it rideable for him. I'm happy to change to an 80mm Cinelli Ant stem or 110mm Cinelli Vai should you want to.

    Specs:

    Frame : COLUMBUS Alloy Custom
    Fork : COLUMBUS Carbon/Alloy 1-1/8”
    Chain set : Lasco 48T
    Bottom Bracket : FSA BB-7420
    Cassette : 17T Fixed Cog/17t freewheel
    Chain : KMC Z510
    Pedals: DMR V8
    Handlebars : Cinelli Pepper 31.mm
    Stem : Cinelli 6061 31.8mm
    Wheelset : Jalco Mrx24 Rims – KT Hubs Fixed/Free Flipflop
    Tyres : Gatorskin back/Panaracer Pasela front
    Saddle : Cinelli VL
    Seatpost : Cinelli 6061 27.2mm
    Brakes : Promax RC-452
    Brakes levers : BLB Crosstop levers

    £400 (but open to offers)

    15" Specialized Rockhopper Pro Hardtail Disc (2006)

    So, this was a freebie from my housemate's uncle, again, this came home to much laughter from me. I think this is the 2006 model but honestly, I'm not a mountain biker and they all kinda look the same.

    The pros:

    • Frame and fork are in good condition
    • You get a full period Deore XT groupset with some nice Hope hydro discs
    • Itd make a nice dad bike/commuter

    The cons (and they are legion):

    • The chain and cassette are rusty af (although it does shift surprisingly well)
    • The front brake isn't currently connected up
    • The right-hand lever is bent
    • It's very heavy
    • The tyres are balder than a coot

    It's all stock (apart from the Hope brakes) so assuming it is the 2006 model, specs can be found here: https://www.bikeradar.com/reviews/bikes/­mountain-bikes/specialized-rockhopper-pr­o-disc-review-2/

    £100 or any reasonable offer

    As always, if these prices are way off I'm sure I'll find out mighty quickly. Any questions just shoot me a PM.

    Pictures to follow.
