  • Bought this bike off the forum back in April. Has served me well. Has a 56cm top tube, shimano cranks, 46 t Gebhartdt, selle italia saddle., no name front brake.
    Comes with the chain attached (white thick beasty dream conspiracy). All it needs is a set of wheels.


    Speaking of wheels..........have a set of white non machined velocitys. 32h with chrome surly hubs. Done 96km on them so in pretty good condition. But was running front and back brakes so are marked where pads gripe.

    £130 for both.

    Leaving for the states on friday monring so ideally want them sifted before then.
    West london (twickenham). Out tonight (from 5pm but will reply to any pm's in the morning if not late late late tonight.

  • Split the shizzle for maximum £$£.

    I for one would be interested in the frame.

  • if you split, interested in the lever+caliper

    and depending on the lenght, interested in the cranks

  • I'd be interested in the saddle.

  • If ye split, that thar chainset be mine,

  • Dibs on the wheels

  • Cranks and chain if split please.

    You have sold it all mate.

    Might as well....SPLIT!

  • frame - ehren
    lever +caliper - Rik
    sadle - Jol
    cranks + chain - Rosmal, white flower
    wheels- Moog

  • Nice...........right i guess split it is then. If it will get me £120 split all for it............
    Wheels £120??.........i hope someone will take cos i do think that is a pretty fair price and don't really want to give them away for anything less. Unless that will get me slated and told to "'bay them".

  • How much then pal?

    Break them down for Rik as he kindly made that list for you!

  • remember everyone that I have bids in the cranks depending the lenght

    so, what is the lenght of the cranks??

  • I'll take the velocitys for £120, when do you want to meet?

  • Is the frame powder coated or rattle can'd?

  • we need info Mr Wasp

  • Could I get second dibs on the frame please?

  • apologies. work boredom to contend with.
    right. frame is powder coated. is a deep broze colour. actually quite nice and in very good condition.
    break down of split.
    frame - ehren £70 (forks, headset, 3ttt stem, handlebars - cheap kalloy, oury grips)
    lever +caliper - Rik £5 (for £5 extra will throw in a tiagra back caliper)
    sadle - Jol £10 (including seatpost)
    cranks + chain - Rosmal, white flower £25
    wheels- Moog £120
    Only problem i have is getting the cranks off the bike as i don't have a tool for that. Usually get tom at cavendish to sort that stuff for me.
    let me know if i have got this wrong.

  • Can I pick up tonight? I live in Uxbridge but I'm in central tonight so it would be convienient if I could pick them up tonight.

  • ok, where and when

  • Im outtie, just got some FREE cranks from a friend.

  • I will take the cranks, but I will like to know if there are 165 or 170mm

  • can sort everything tonight wednesday or thursday night. live in Isleworth (just along from twickenham) so wheels i can meet at richmond station. small items i can meet on my commute from liverpool street to home. Moogs..... alas ed?? (had an email frm an ed wanting to exchange on the wheels tonight). Frame can now come with crankset and chainring for £95???
    number is 07738475735 to arrange particulars.

  • actually make that £90 ono on frame and chainset.

  • I'll be at Old Street at 9 so Richmond at 10ish? I'll ring you a bit nearer the time rob.

  • Hmm, don't really need a crank. I'll pass on the dibs to uncleyacov.

  • yeah no worries. send me a txt when you get near and i will jump on the scoot.
