55cm (Neil) Diamant - Fluoro Fantastique

Posted on
  • Selling this rad ride. I've named him Neil but I'm a believer that he/she/it's open to a new name from an owner who appreciates the 90s fluorescent flair.

    Originally built by Orko42 (thread here).

    Bought for gears post-ACL surgery. Better now so switching back to fixed.
    Ridden for a year and a half. Picked up some minor paint knicks from heavy-handed locking but otherwise in full working order.

    Bits list:
    Diamant frame - 55cm st, c-c - tt 54cm c-c (I'm 178cm 5'10)
    Ultegra group with thumb shifters.
    Chainset - Shimano 105 50-34
    Maddux 2.0 wheel set with 25c Rubino Pro Control tyres
    Nitto bullhorns wrapped in black on a 90mm BlB quill stem
    26.8mm seat post
    Selle italia novus saddle
    Tektro calipers and levers
    Original chrome forks

    Looking for a good home. Yours for £530.
    Based E2.

  • Lusted after this on the original sales thread; couldn't afford it then, nor can I now! le sigh. Not to be too much of a vulture but if you end up splitting I'd be keen on the frame and forks. GLWS and congrats on the recovery.

  • Thanks! Not keen on splitting atm but will let you know if I change my mind.

  • Good to see this one, it was a fun build and glad you’ve got the use out of it. Looks damn sweet @Chung

  • £450 last call.
