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.
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!
