Condor 531 single speed

    I had bought and built this up as a single speed commuter – I live in West Dulwich and my journeys tend to be relatively flat. But now I’m moving to the other side of Crystal Palace, and with a heavy bag I think I’ll need gears after all… so I can’t really justify keeping it if I’m not going to be using regularly.

    It’s a lovely ride, looks great and will make someone very happy. Currently set up at 46-18, which I have found ideal for most of London (except the steepest of hills).

    It has a couple of very small chips on the chain side stay, and a small mark by the headtube lug (which Bob Jackson inspected and gave the all clear).

    Frameset: Condor 531c from the early 90s. 56cm c-c, 58cm c-t
    Headset: Condor Uno
    Wheelset: Campagnolo Veloce / Fir Zenith 32h
    Chainset: Sturmey Archer single speed 46t
    Bottom bracket: Shimano BB-UN55 British thread 68 - 110 mm
    Stem: System Ex SMX quill 1"" 26.0 100mm
    Seatpost: System Ex silver 25.4mm
    Chain: SRAM PC1 1/8 1spd nickel
    System EX single speed adaptor kit
    Brakes: Tektro R539 long drop road caliper
    Levers: Tektro L520 drop bar levers
    Handlebar: System Ex SMX road 26.0 42cm (wrapped in lovely Fizik tape).

    (Charge Spoon saddle and Shimano pedals not included – I can provide a different saddle and flat pedals – but I am open to offers for these.)

    Eyelets all round for guards & rack.
    Water bottle mounts on the seat tube.
    Cable guide eyelets on the head tube.

    Moved to Gumtree

  • Looks great. You can’t just add a vintage gearset to give you the range?

  • Thanks. I could, but I think if I can't get my costs covered I'd rather keep it as a single speed for those days that I feel less weak!

  • Open to offers.

  • Ahh nice 👍

  • This is still available. I've upgraded the brake levers to TRP RRLs, and it continues to ride very well. But I want to sell this soon, so Gumtree beckons...
