It’s the first generation frameset designed for long reach calliper brakes (I used Tektro R539) with straight bladed fork (not the later model with canti bosses) made from Salsa Classico double butted cromoly. Colour is Ginger Beer and it really sparkles, works well with the silver headset and finishing kit also.
The frame is really versatile, with semi horizontal stainless steel rear dropouts allowing gears or fixed/singlespeed, proper mudguard clearance and full mudguard and rack mounts. The effective top tube is 58.5cm with a headtube of 185mm. Salsa list it as a 55cm (which appears to be the seat tube length CTT), I've included a pic of the geometry chart in the photos.
I bought the frame second hand on here in 2013 and built it up fixed with mostly new components. I then later reinvented it as a mile-munching road bike for a few years and it was brilliant at both.
Sale includes the following:
Frame and fork: Salsa Casseroll (good used condition, some cosmetic paint marking shown in the photos)
Headset: Cane Creek 110 (very nice and smooth, I'd definitely use this again in future - also has a 110-year warranty!)
Seat post: Ritchey Classic 27.2mm
Stem: Ritchey Classic 120mm, 31.8mm
Bars: Ritchey Classic 42cm, 31.8mm
Silver spacers included also.
I'm slightly concerned that this will always be the one that got away if it sells, but it's got to go. Hopefully the next owner will love it as much.
£275 (plus postage if required)
