  • Hi all,

    I am looking to sell my 2013 Enigma Ethos, ideally as a whole bike or possibly frame only, or groups of parts. It is an XL sized frame (I am 6' 2" tall) and a good fit for me, as you would hope for a custom built frame! I attach details of the measurements in a CAD drawing. More details about the frame are here: http://www.enigmabikes.com/products/etho­s. I think it is still more or less the same frame in 2015.

    The frame was built using Columbus Life tubing, and finished in Pantone 5395-c, a dark, smoky blue-grey colour. I requested that no Enigma decals be applied, apart from the headtube badge. The bottom bracket shell has the Enigma logo embossed on the underside.

    The total build cost was around £3,400.00. Finishing kit is mainly a combination of Campagnolo Record and PMP. It includes Campagnolo Record 10-speed shifters, Record brake calipers, a Harry Rowland built wheelset (Mavic CXP33 with PMP hubs); Campagnolo Centaur 12-30 cassette and Centaur 10-speed chain and a very hard to come by PMP XP-Road crankset and headset. Speedplay Frog Ti pedals (not shown in the photograph), Thomson seatpost and stem, Nitto bars, a Fizik Kurve saddle, and Continental Gatorskin 25mm tyres complete the build. I include a full list of parts and the approximate prices I paid for them (I have used lower prices where items have reduced in price since I bought them).

    This was the classic 'bike for life' build, but a forthcoming kitchen extension requires funds! I am looking for £1,800.00 for the complete bike. I am based in Tonbridge, but may be able to deliver within reason. I would possibly consider a frame-only sale, or the sale of groups of parts but I am not keen just to sell individual bits and bobs, apart from the pedals which I don't use. I reverted to Shimano pedals to save me having to get different shoes to ride my other bikes.

  • Appreciate this isn't fixed gear or single speed, but NO views at all in two days? What's that about?

  • Ok. Now I've added a comment, it says 322 views. I'll get my coat.

  • how did you find Life? The tubing obvs not your existence.

  • It's a nice ride, not as light as I'd expected but comfortable, quick to accelerate with little effort. I've only ever had steel framed bikes though so perhaps not best placed to judge its relative merits.

  • I am interested to k ow what the fork is........looks like a steel one from here

  • Hi there
    I am asking about the fork, because I am interested in buying your frame/fork.
    Is it still available?


  • Hi again
    Can I assume that the bike is sold........

  • Hi there, sorry, lost track of the ad...bike is not sold. Fork is steel, made and supplied by Enigma at the same time as the frame build.

  • Hi there
    A long shot…….
    Did you sell??


  • Hi, no, I didn't sell it in the end. I have since replaced the mix and match groupset with Campagnolo Potenza which actually works a lot better, but has a few scrapes from use, and replaced the finishing kit with similar parts in black. It is now in storage and unused for the past few years. I would still consider selling, though possibly more attractive as a frame and fork rather than a whole bike.

  • What we’re thinking for
    The frameset?
    The bike?

    Remind me where you are please

  • I'll PM you

  • Thanks

  • Surprisingly effective dredge

  • Absolutely cannot believe this worked out

  • When a move like this pulls off its stone cold baller, when the dredge just offers up corroded shopping trolleys a little less so

  • I don’t understand the above comments from big ted!


  • Ambitious. Like it.

  • I’m giving you credit for pulling off a long range dredge 😀

  • looks like you knocked him sideways with your jive talk

  • Imagine being on 'here' and keeping a bike you don't really want, and would like to sell, for 6 years? I don't even keep the bikes I really really like for that long.

  • Gotcha!

  • He's not in London. Therefore probably has a garage or big shed. That's why I have a bunch of bikes some of which don't get enough action.

  • i'm just pleased i was around to see a thread like this play out.... move to "classics" tbf
