  • Selling my Elin. Has been sitting unused for 2 years now.

    Super interesting frame which seems to have a nice history. The remnants of the paint suggest that it was once painted in both the Ukrainian and Lithuanian national team colour, before being sprayed black. Previous owner sanded it back to reveal the different layers. Frame is carbon, takes a 27.2mm seat post. Headset isn't super smooth anymore. It currently has few stickers on it which I can remove on request. The rest of the bike is pretty grubby, there's no protective layer on top so all dirt/road grime is kinda stuck on there.. Would need a proper clean or the top layer sanding off to get it looking tidier.

    This frame does have it's issues. First up, the top tube has had a repair which was done by the previous owner. I can't speak for it's integrity however both him and myself have ridden it with no issues. Secondly, there is a crack in the aluminium seat collar. This was welded close by previous owner however the crack has reappeared. The seat post I currently have installed tightens up with no issues, I can include this for free. Due to these issues though, I warn the buyer to ride at their own risk.

    Includes are frame, fork, headset, seat post and bb.

    Looking for £180. Collection only from E8.

    Some pics of how I've had it built before. Will put up some pics in it's current state in the next couple of days.

  • Resurecting this thread. Realistically don't think I'd build this up again and not sure I'd fork out the money to get it fixed up correctly so looking to move it on to someone who wants a project!

    Collection now from N1 London, would sell for £160.
