Bought this on the forum a few months back, it's a great frame but slightly too big for me.
Its made from Tange OS, the only detailed reference I could find was from an AT&T intranet chat from 1991! (Not quite sure how this worked that early!)
The poster states that all Tange OS Tubes are Made from a Prestige tubeset. I can't verify this but it's a nice ride - noticeably stiffer than 531 etc but still comfortable
I had the headtube and fork crown changed from JIS to ISO by Argos cycles to make choosing a headset easier
Originally purchased for £50+postage . ISO conversion was £40, it's also been touched up and polished. I'll offer it for £90 posted from Bristol or £100 with a black Tange Falcon cartridge headset , which was new on installation.
Here's a photo of it built, I'll get a few more of it stripped down soon
Looks mint. A quick google bought up a few more Tange OS mentions.
OS just means Oversized, and the Tange OS road bikes seem to be Presitge yeah
Cheers ! Yes I was aware its oversized, was just curious about the tubeset properties as Tange OS isn't seen much . Thanks for the table though !
Thats ace. Absolute bargain too. Too small for me mind you. GLWS
very cool frame glws
Dibs if you're willing to ship abroad
Does the frame have mudguard mounts? Can see the fork doesn't...
My old frame-looks ace
Hi,sorry would rather keep it postage to UK
no mudguard mounts, it has quite close clearances
Thomson Elite seat post to go with it also available for £30
That thing looks amazing. If I had space and spare cash ild snap it up. GLWS!
Cheers, I was really torn whether to part with it but if it doesn't fit its not right!
Np, honestly already have troubles with my n-1 equation.
@monkdagola buy this!!!!! or @timwilkey!!!!
before you strip it down, bring it to my shop on broad st, so i can get a picture. #sweetride
Hi, do you have any geo info? Especially effective TT and headtube length? Also, I'm assuming it's a 1" headtube?
Rad, and a total bargain, wish it was smaller, GLWS.
Hi , I'll measure when I get home, I think it's 57 ctc square but will have to check. 1" headtube for sure
Ah too late already stripped ! Groupset now on a caad7! Which is your shop?
Will knock £10 off if anyone wants to collect from Bristol, can meet centrally.
Any pics stripped down and close up and could you confirm the 57cm square measurements ...
Just checked it's actually 57ctc top tube and 56ctc seat tube
More photos here
Full court press, bring the caad though, it's Rad. #DasCaadKlub
