It's a Borga. Can't find much about the brand online. It appears to be an Italian bicycle shop, so it was probably built by another company / builder.
It’s a beaut, found the listing. Very envious.. look forward to seeing more
Anyone got any leads on a road Columbus Max frame in size 55 for sale?
This pretty Somec MAX is on sale in Vienna
That MBK sports a 55 TT
Thanks. I have seen that but in that colour I'd have to respray :-(
Bargain; too small for me unfortunately. (Not mine)
Racefiets Concorde columbus max campagnolo
That's really cool and my size, but etc. What wpuld one have to do with that rear fork?
Expensive (Argos charge £250 for chroming a rear triangle). Not sure if it could be done without a re-paint but suspect not. Polish and clearcoat?
Polish and clearcoat then.
It's gone already...
Rechroming is pretty expensive. And can't be done without first sanding the frame (they don't want paint residue in tbeir chroming tub...).
one for the tall lads
I have been eyeing up a Somec Dynamic minimax on eBay.
Any one familiar with these - I was wondering about tyre clearances. I want to get 25c on there as minimum.
I'm not familiar with these in specific but I am with nineties road bikes in general. 25's as a minimum will be very tricky. My experience is that 25's are mostly a maximum (those days, we used to ride 21's most of the time, you know...). When riding 25's on some of my bikes, I first have to deflate them before I can get the rear wheel in.
Ha yes I hear you on that. Jamming 23c's onto nightmare tight mavic rims and nicking the tube with metal levers. Makes sense 25c is likely to be the max. I have emailed the seller.
I recall even 19c in the day. To think 32c now is not unusual on a road bike!
So I missed the Somec Dynamic Minimax going on eBay ... if anyone has a line on a 52-53cm Max frame it would be great to hear. cheers
That's bollocks. There's several Max frames on German Ebay but mostly 56 and larger.
Yes I see there is a battaglin max on ebay.de 59cm so too big for me (and missing the original forks). Lovely panto though.
Please someone buy this, been thinking about it for weeks. But it can end up bad for my bank account at the moment
No bids for weeks. He is asking 400€ shipped if you want to buy it straight through PayPal.
@etcdaman 53 could be perfect for you since you missed the Somec
love this - but think it's one size too small for me (or at least, that's what I'm telling myself)
Thanks for the heads up @flatik. Got in touch with the seller outside of ebay.
Frame, fork and panto Grandis stem purchased. So many nice touches on these frames. Looking forward to receiving it.
Pretty sure I will go neo retro on the build (a first for me). A winter project!
Glad you finally got a max frame in your size ! Looking forward the neo retro build that's how I would have build it too
I feel better now too haha
anybody got some max forks laying around? or recommendations for alternatives?
Not cheap but pretty
On sale in NL
