  • RSL SX size 56 with Campagnolo Veloce / Calima. 7.9 kg without pedals and accessories.

  • First pic of mine

  • Is on its way?

  • Just seen this, very cool, anymore pics?

  • Ha. Yes! Every now and then I take a punt at the upload feature on my phone. Will do imgur when I get to work

  • For future reference (cross post from Classifieds):

    I've been struggling with [replacing the headset on] my rs6 pro. Just today I stumbled across this Danish site that has the right kind of crazy EC37/30 EC37/34 headset these frames need:­rfittings/principia-elipse-styrfittings-­1-18in-1-14

    PS: Some of the frames also came with a mix of Chris King EC37 Devolution top and standard EC37 bottom. (I salvaged the top and bottom cups of a CK EC37 headset from a cracked frame, but don't have the crown race or top bearing cover), as seen in this thread:­25/

    Note: EC37 is External Cup for 37 mm headtube, i.e. for 1 1/4" forks.

  • Oh nice! I had a bit of a pain replacing the bearings on mine, my pal at the shop swore not to do it again and said next time it was a new headset for me, so this is really good to know, thanks.

    And double thanks re my bike too

  • Mine.

  • Does anyone have an RSL?

    I've seen one going cheap that has tempted me. I've already got a Jet, TT2 and a Rex though, so maybe I should just save my money

  • There's a few on DBA.

  • Principia carbon fork question, does anyone have one with an aluminium sleeve insert glued in the fork? Mine does and it reduces the size to an internal dimension that won’t take any other 1” size. Unfortunately the FRM headset it came with appears to be buggered, always coming loose, and I’m looking for a replacement. Problem is it appears to be a 1” aheadset / compression bung that is impossible to find/ replicated by any other manufacturer. Any advice appreciated?

  • I have an RSL alongside a Track jet. I've always loved it but would figure if you've a Rex, do you need one?

  • One thing i do not need is more bikes. Or vinyl records.

    I forgot to bid on it before it ended at 1pm because I was loading my late dad's records into my car.

    It went for £113 in the end - bit of a bargain! I've saved myself a trip to Solihull though.

    Someone was interested in a headset that I had - was it @Sveinung?

    I've got it out, it's nice and shiny, but the lower bearing feels a bit notchy. send me a PM if you're interested in it and I can take some photos

  • Spam alert! Selling my Principia 700 quite cheap here:­80/#comment14919818

  • I take umbrage to the gold and yellow but else wise I love this.

  • Just in case, I'd be really interested in an rs6 pro or rex pro (or even revolution) frameset if anyone has one? Large that would be.

  • Selling my Principia frame here is anyone is interested­28/#comment14998069

  • Very nice! Glws I'm sure this will go quickly.. if not happy to pick it up early next year when in the UK next.

  • Weird headsets in these too. Had one in recently and I got the headset working by using the needle bearings from a miche headset. If the other parts where not present the would have been stuffed.

  • my LBS used a bottom bracket bearing if i remember correctly. funny old world

  • Picking up a orange glow RS6 tomorrow, with Duraace 9 speed.
    Silver wheels, silver groupset, seatpost/stem?

  • It's got black forks and a black logo, I'd day black finishing kit, silver groupset and wheels.
