Great picture... I have one of those too but mine is 531C...
Haha if that ever happens you’re on 👌🏼
Looks great. I have bought the first part if I build it up-which i should- an all black CK headset
Dont like the CK headsets, campagnolo is simpler and works the 1st time. Even a shimano 600 ultegra with sealed bearings or the hard to get dura ace works better than the CK stuff IMO.
Mine came with a campagnolo mirage, great and super simple headset... i compare it to the really old record models, just simple stuff... removed the mirage, cleaned it, regreased with lithium grease and is pure perfection.
Have both CK and Campagnolo new record ones. Can’t fault the Campag one but being a tart I like the idea of black HS on this. Likely to go Shimano also and then also thinking black Nitto finishing kit to pop the colour up
IMO those tvm need to be all silver... but it is a thing of taste.
Yeah maybe it will be, need to get over the fact it’s NOS now and do it proud to build it up
He says running campag on a shimano sponsored team replica 😉
@Simpson all black sounds ace - there is a picture on google of an all black built baanfiets 👌 most importantly what wheels you planning?
Black stems, seatposts and headsets all used so legit option 👍🏻👍🏻
Mullet and earring are essential.
Haha thanks Matt, all personal opinions obviously. Liked the look of those Mavic cosmic’s many were selling off cheap- though warrantees might be an issue, then some others I’ve seen on a build on here of a Kavalinka rd bike? Or even just some black (😬) Ck to something like a 30mm Carbon rim
What do I have to ask for in the barbers to get that hairstyle?
Love the look of this one
^The speedstream, perhaps the rarest of all champion mondials, maybe even rarer than the stayer bike. In the past 10 years, I think I've seen 1 in the local classifieds. It went fast :)
Does anyone know what the last year was that gazelle made steel CX bikes? i have found one on the classifieds but looks far more modern than anything I can find and the pictures are a bit shit. straight unicrown forks, ahead, lugged seatclamp/cluster but that is the only lug i can see, vertical dropouts...? any ideas, its lush, I think I will buy it but the guy is asking for 900euros which is a bit steep considering I will probs have to change the wheels etc. thanks for any insights!
Baanfiets on marktplaats once again. Looks like a respray though.
link at bottom for 90's omward, check the brochures too for pictures to compare
I'm not sure, but they must have been made until the late 90s, early 00s. Unicrown does sound like a a more modern steel Gazelle cx. 900 is crazy though. Those modern ones are not particularly sought after and considering cx bikes get battered heavily, the value is nowhere near that I think. Got a link or pic?
unless im an idiot, there is no cross bikes that have been uploaded? maybe I'm clicking on the wrong thing?
yea, 900 is definitely Germany prices, 2nd hand stuff seems to go for a lot more here, or at least a lot more is asked! says 2004 but unless it was a ltd ed that seems wild.
If you go to 'catalogues', you will find 2000 as the last year of the steel cx, after that they switch to alu it seems.
That's definitely a cool bike. But indeed a very strong price. The rusty bolts tell a little bit of a story that the bike was not always properly cleaned. I'd be carefull with that.
ah sweet, i was looking on the graph thing, so 1999/2000 probably 531. i will ask for some more photos and see what they are saying about the price, would like it for sure but would have to be a pretty hefty drop.
Perhaps the tubing is 531 trapezi, which is pretty sweet. This has oversized tubing at certain points, among which the seat tube near the BB. It is supposed to be a really strong type of 531.
