Nice, have seen them going for like 100 quids on ebay before. Going to list them here if anyone’s interested
hi people - i'm a guest. your bikes that are unidentified could possibly be found on a website called sterba bike cz. these are 1930's racing bike frames. one could be a bianche 1930 italy racing bike. another could be a la francaise diamante racing bike. i found out thru the crank on my bike. so it is possible you have a france 1930's racing bike frames. good luck.
Hello everyone! I am a guest posting here as I inherited a vintage mountain bike and, as I will be leaving the UK soon, want to identify the bike / its parts to prepare for selling it. I unfortunately don't know much about bikes so I appreciate any help! What I do know though is that it is apparently a very nice bike full with desirable parts that especially collectors might be interested in.
I think this was called a Schwinn Homegrown - definitely a very nice piece - late 90's with a very good specification.
Awesome, thanks so much!
I've just bought a bike with this logo on the stem and the crankset and I'd like to identify it. I've seen the logo before and I'm sure that this info is at the back of my mind somewhere but I can't for the life of me remember. It's driving me nuts, can anyone help?
Avid brakes with Avid Tri Dangle cable holders, these were very fashionable!
I’d be interested in the brakes and levers from that Schwinn.
Stem is from a Charge bike
This is from an early Isla-bikes tag along bike. It’s the rack part which attaches to the adult bike. Isla bikes first product I think - back in 90s
The child part attaches to the upside down dropouts with a skewer
Blinder. I’ve used it as a bag support on my commuter in the past, good to know what it’s really for. Thank you.
Thanks for that, I was kind of hoping it was a better make than that, but at least now I know...
Can anyone please help me identify this original Raleigh mercury road racing saddle, I'm n the middle of currently doing up my Raleigh 1909s need to find an original saddle for it, thanks Samuel
Flogged one a wee while ago. Seemed good.
Thank gawd I didn’t know or I would have been forced to buy it! I have no children, but still
Bought this for cheap.
No idea what it is.
135mm rear spacing
1 1/8 head tube (I think, 34mm internal diameter)
Ritchey rear dropouts
St 46cm ctc 52 ctt
Tt 57cm ctc
No serial no on bb shell.
Seat tube 26.8~mm
Looks like a bargain
I reckon it’s a merlin logic
Whoa, that’s a good start. One of the retro bike guys at the jumble mentioned Merlins had Ritchey dropouts (and was unlikely to be a Ritchey). Not bad for £15!
This has got straight stays and cable stops mounted on the top. But going through google images it deffo seems in the right ballpark. Extended ST and clamp on the front of the ST rather than rear seem to be relatively unique.
The search continues.
@Nef Forward facing seat clamps were quite popular in the Uk in the early/ mid 90s
It was perceived to be a mud ingress thing.
Custom builders used to do it - Roberts Yates etc as well as some otp builders (fusion, orange, merlin
This bike has been advertised as a 30-something year old De Rosa Primato. The unicrown forks are apparently threadless and I've only seen these on Neo Primatos made after 2000 or so. Can anyone please put a year on it? Cheers
Are the fork dropouts marked De Rosa?
This I don't know. Just started to ask the seller questions this evening. I'll ask this specifically when I get a reply.
