My daily commuter got stolen last night :( so now in need of a replacement as I cycle to work daily. Looking for something relatively low cost as I have weekend rider that's too nice for commuting! so basically after someone who has a beater lying around that they wouldn't mind some cash for
Sorry to hear about the theft!
What size are you after?
I have this complete singlespeed that I have just put together.
The frame is is a 56cm square (ctc), made out of Camus steel tubes in France.
This will be suitable for someone around 5ft10 - 178cm, give or take a few cms.
What have I got in it? About £90
Fitted Giant Cro-Mo forks and headset (eBay £25 - headset is now BSA)
New Singlespeed chainring bolts (£3.50)
New Retro Rivet Saddle (£5)
New KMC 1/8th Track chain (£5)
New singlespeed wheelset (£50)
New 18t Dicta freewheel (£5)
Loads of new parts and also, brake pads & tyres are good so you can cycle for for a while without spending anything.
Brakeset is Spidel (made by Mafac) LSX2 - which some people think they are "rare".
Thanks for your response Vince! In my despair I completely forgot to mention the size I'm after. Sadly I think it will be too small as I stand at about 6'2, would need a bigger frame sadly
I am working on another project that would fit.
58cm Bernard Carré.
I was going to go geared but could easily turn it into a singlespeed as I have all the parts.
Price would be £245.
New tyres, new cables, new Planet X singlespeed kit (tensioner & cassette spacer kit), new bar tape (you can choose the colour)
That could work, how much would you want for the setup as SS?
Added to previous post!

Thanks Vince. This is a bit above my budget :( my max budget is £150 (I like to abuse my commuter_
I have one of these in 55cm - I'm 5'11 and there's plenty of scope for sizing it up. It's got flat bars currently but also have the original stem and drops which I can throw in :)
I'd let it go for £150 to avoid the bother of setting up a classifieds ad
I can work on price if the spec is different.
Used Carrera wheelset (black) with used tyres, no chain tensioner, unbranded saddle, entry level bar tape.
I can have it ready Saturday AM
Hey Quincy - what is it? I couldn't quite work out from the pics!
Sorry! Should have mentioned that! It's a Gary Fisher Trek Triton.
Cr-mo frame & fork. Eyes for rear rack. 2 sets of bottle cage bosses
Definitely interested Quincy - concerned about the size though, quite a lot smaller than I ride. Where abouts are you based? Wondering if a try out is possible
PM'd you :)
Got a Langster in Oxford if you're interested.
Got this 58cm for £100
Bruised and chipped but solid!
Let me know
Got this gazelle track
