  • Hi there,
    Looking at making up a light tourer for a couple of tours and also just as a bad weather/light off road bike. Something like a genesis CDf or TDf would be good but will consider anything along those lines!

  • Forgot to mention, would prefer it to be steel framed. Thanks for the link anyway!

  • This Eddy Merckx touring bike? 54 cm c-t, aluminium.

  • Size? Budget? I might have something nice depending.

  • Yeah I probably should have written that too. I'm 5'11 and usually ride a Large or something like 57x57. Budget, not really sure, will decide once I've seen it! Thanks

  • Ok, thanks. The frame I have will be too big in any case I think. Good luck!

  • Oh okay, thanks for the reply anyway!

  • Anyone else got anything available?

  • I am selling a genesis day one frame and fork - at 6'3" the extra large is just a little small and I'm looking to replace it with a new genesis frame which is a lot longer.
    the frame is black 60cm set tube with a horizontal toptube of 575mm
    I could sell as a complete bike if that is what you wanted.

  • Is that the single speed version?
    I think it may be a bit big for me. I'm 5'11 and usually ride something about 57 square.

  • it was originally the alfine di2 version but since that all failed it was stripped down and replaced with derailleur gears (I had a custom sliding gear hanger made).
    if you look at the new genesis web site the new large ( your height is around this size )
    can send photos if you wish.

  • Kaffenbacks are currently down to £149 frame and forks at Planet X.­anet-x-kaffenback-2-frameset

  • I have a battered Dawes galaxy frame with a 56/ 57 ish TT. I need to measure to check
    I d say it was a large in Kaffenback sizing. I have a medium Kaffenback.
    Whole bike or parts there of is available.

  • Got any pics? Sounds interesting.

  • I ll take some tonight...

    It's a Claude Butler Dalesman, but the frame is the same as the Dawes Galaxy was for that year; 09 I think..
    Unfortunately, too big for me with drops-- It has all the necessary braze ons and is currently with flat bars but I have the Tiagra STI levers .

  • Thanks. Drop me a PM when you take them.

  • Wouldn't mind a few pictures too if you could?

  • Taken, should be uploading them shortly..

    In terms of etiquette then I think jroper has 1st dibs? The bike is in Walthamstow.

  • That's fair enough - he asked first!

  • And here are some pictures...

  • What is the geo on that? Looks like a really long top tube?
    And how much did you want for the whole bike?

  • Pm me if that's easier!

  • Still on the look out for something steel framed for touring. I have bought a bike but will be looking to swap the frame out soon ish. Let me know what you've got!
