  • Bought this about a week ago and... It doesn't fit!

    Beautiful track frame made from reynolds 531c tubing, drilled front only, measures 56cm c-c TT and 60cm c-c ST.

    Is in very good condition indeed, beautiful vibrant purple colour, the paint is pretty much mint. Comes with BB and Miche headset, forks are 1" threaded. The Dropouts are gorgeous.

    £200, collection in Camden Town. Its a good price for a beautiful lightweight frame.

    • Jim
  • Nice!

  • Nice frame, nice price.

  • :d

  • Bargain! Wish I was taller..

  • with or without cranks? -__________-

  • Looks mighty big for 58 c-c ST ...

  • it does, looks more like 60 or 61cm

  • good point, had a muddle up, its a 60!!!

    Amended with apologies.

  • Oh good, means i can't wish i was buying it.

  • It is indeed a good price. If only it were 2cm bigger, I would probably buy it and make it fit.

            Oops! Looks like you followed a bad link. 
    

    link doesnt work for me.

  • It is indeed a good price. If only it were 2cm bigger, I would probably buy it and make it fit.

    use shorter cranks

  • It would be longer cranks. For a lugged frame I ideally need a 64cm. I am 6'5".

  • really not having a good day, have fixed the link too.

  • Forgot to mention, this Martin Ashfield dude, did a bit of reading on him, looks like he is one of the mechanics at British Cycling. Still has a shop (google him), was gonna give him a call to ask about the frame but not really much point now!
