I'm now on the lookout for a new frame, ideally 60-63cm c2t seat tube with at least 20cm head tube. Something reasonably modern, with a carbon fork and rim brakes only please. Would fit 28mm tyres. Steel or aluminium.
Inspiration: Condor Super Accaicio, Cinelli Nemo Tig, or can even be an older looking lug style frame, as long as its fairly light (for steel).
Is that too big?
Brother Stroma ?
There's a large ish 1982 Raleigh that someone is looking to sell on Cyclechat.
If you fancied buying back the 63cm caad you sold me then I’d be happy to sell on - It’s still in fantastic condition. I’ve used it with a columbus tusk straight fork that has been great. 25mm clearance only thought of course. I’m moving to discs so thinking of selling on anyway...
What. That! Anyone in Duns, Scotland who can help?
A 6'5 friend is looking for a complete bike - something with gears, preferably steel and in good working order. London based. Anything going?
Not in London, but I have a Condor Fratello disc, with son dynamo I was thinking about parting ways with. It's the 64cm version, with Ultegra 6800 groupset. Quite expensive (~£1700) and quite specific setup (ultra racing / audax) but just in case?
A lovely bike but that's over his budget! Thank you though
Kati, what's his max?
Up to £1000 absolute max.
I'll pm you Kati.
Looking for a big ol bike around 60-62- my budget is around £200. If anyone has seen one like this I'd be ridiculously grateful for a pointer! First time secondhand bike buyer so not totally clued up on the best places to look/search for.
I have got a BSA Prima 531 frameset in a 60ish CM, it's too small for me, it's a bit ropy paintwork wise, however would build up in to something nice, can provide a partial 105 groupset, a front wheel with it all for less than 100?
Would be interested to see pics!
I have a 6'4" friend looking for either a frame or full build in any non-carbon material.
Can I ask anyone who had something or knows of something to pm me with:
1) a good photo
2) geometry (seat tube centre to top, top tube centre to centre) head tube (with/without cup)
3) build details
4) price posted if not in London.
I will pass all details along to him.
Thanks in advance.
Any interest in a 60cm Focus Cayo?
Bought new in 2010, and reserved for 'Sunday best' use - barely any rainy rides and always kept indoors. Refurbed in 2015 (work done by Cloud 9 Cycles in Fitzrovia) with a full new 105 (5800) groupset, hand built wheels with 105 hubs and H Plus Son Archetype rims, Look Keo 2 Max pedals.
The white bar tape need replacing, only as it is grubby, but apart from that its all in excellent condition. I estimate that its only done 1500 miles since the upgrades in 2015. I've had a kid since then and just haven't had the time to use it.

Not mine but here is a 27 1/2" Mercian for sale on Cycling UK - £950 - https://forum.cyclinguk.org/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=138991
It is a whopper - pics - https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipNrqZEe3SwkKmte0diV5g6m_z8-7zobmKTEeROq6Phl9BUFElSctXW8B8-kBoQY-g?key=NjJHaTRZY2wyT0V0Q3piQlA5T0xDTjRFaWdjdTlB
Nice, but maybe a bit small? What would you be asking?
