With a heavy heart etc etc etc...
It's a Maxi Sports team / Cyrille Guimard branded frame with the BB shell stamped 1994, made by Cyfac I believe. Originally belonged to a R Pierre. Maxi Sports was used by the Castorama team in the 90s. There are a few other examples online if you want more info.
It's got fork ends and is not drilled for a back brake, but the geo isn't track aggressive so is perfect for fixed road riding. Just about takes 28c tyres.
Size is 56 tt 57 st. I'm 5'11" and was nice to ride slammed due to the relatively high stack.
Condition is used, it's been locked up and has quite a few scratches/'patina' but no dents. There is a light surface rust patch under the rear brake bridge (or whatever it's called if there's no brake hole).
Was sold to me as Columbus SLX, I can't verify that but the whole bike is under 8.5kg according to my luggage scales.
27.2mm seatpost, BSA thread so easy to swap parts out.
