Columbus max Somec.
Any interest here for my Columbus Max, Brands frame and forks?
Seat tube c-c 57cm
Seat tube c-t 58.5cm
Top tube c-c 55cm
Selling with newly fitted M part elite headset 1" threaded and black id down tube shifter boss covers.
Was thinking £375 and thought id offer it here first before compiling an advert in classifieds.
^ that’s nice.
Max Rossin on the bay..
nice. where are you based ?
Based in London. Happy to meet up. Have sent DM.
DUELL Advantage MAX
The paint job looks like beetles crawling on it to me! Flat red would be 🔥
Sure, tastes differ but I´ve seen way worse colourways.
Max fork for sale; (not mine)
I'm thinking about getting a Max fork made for my road bike. Will it be less comfortable than a 'normal' steel fork? Is it a bad idea?
Who cares about comfort it’ll be a w e s o m e
I've considered it too, there aren't many crowns available anymore unfortunately. The Samson is nice, but when I contacted Orlowski they could only build with the Ceeway one, which I think is boring. They were only 150€ though.
Red Fox Cycles in Copenhagen has/had a NOS crown that was very nice, but not really the same budget as Orlowski.
You can always buy my max fork and then have someone replace the steerer for a longer / threadless one
I want/need some over-size Max like forks too, with a threaded 1 inch steerer long enough for a 61cm frame....yeah right dreaming aren't I. I never see any on ebay with steerers long enough . What I really want is some curved bladed ones like on the Merckx MX Leader, but I never see any of them for sale.
I asked my local frame builder Winston Vaz about getting some forks made in Max, but he said Max only comes in straight blades these days which I don't want as I don't think it will look right on my bike, so seems options are limited.
This is what Orlowski could make. I want clearance for 30c with a shimano r7000 brake
That's the B40, right?
If anyone is after a Max OR mountainbike project, let me know. I have an '89 Olmo "50 th anniversary" frame + forks that has some strange issues (= missing some derailleur cable stops). As I found myself another OR bike, I don't feel the urge to put energy in it but maybe someone else wants to. I think it can result in a nice Max 26" mountainbike.
Would take building a jig...and it's common to bend fork blades.
Yes I think so!
Chas Roberts. Just back from frame repair for new chainstays after the originals rusted through - due to no drainage holes in BB
Will be getting repainted/ touched up
I'm not a big fan of Max tubing but that Roberts is lovely.
