    Yes fam! - early 90's Raleigh MTB
    such steel so lugs - Apparently Fixie is dead and it's all 90's mtb now

    20" (51cm) frame & forks - Reynolds 501 - lugs - pantographed seatstays

    Paintwork - Sick fades in pretty reasonable condition - see photos

    For your £30 you get...

    • 20 " Frame, forks, headset (1.125" threaded), sakae bottom bracket (square taper).
    • Rad Stem ("The CroMo Tube" by Sakae), & Sakae CroMo straight bars, grips
    • 200GS brakeset (cantis with 3-finger levers, cables, stirrups pads)
    • Original seatpost QR
    • Front and rear reflectors with colour coded brackets (white front bracket isn't shown in the pics but I do have it somewhere)

    Would make a great town/dad/adventure/gravel bike - I don't need this anymore as I'm now sorted something far heavier and more cumbersome!

    The frame's in Ascot, collection, delivery, meeting halfway can all be arranged!
    I'll get some proper measurements for you later (TT lengths, angles etc)
    Meanwhile here are some photos:

  • Here's the stem..

  • I just measured the top tube it's 23" which in pre-brexit terms is a rex-slaying 58.4cm.
    Back in the day 20" MTBs were ridden by 6-footers.
    I'm 6'2" and back in the early 90's I was rocking an 18" (46cm) frame.

  • Price drop - £25% off!

  • Cool paint - if I respray a frame I'd like something like that, full 90s clashy.

  • Somebody buy this! (and then buy a retro STX groupset off me to go on it)

  • Bloody bargain!

  • Cheers, I thought I'd priced it quite well and am surprised at no interest after a week.... Happy to consider offers/bartering etc

  • Pm'd

  • Still for sale?

  • Sorry, I shipped it to @spudi yesterday morning
    Now sold

  • Oh man that is so sick and sooooo rad. I wish I had seen it earlier and I could have built it up and had panniers on it.
