I'm hoarding far too much these days, so I'm getting a thread started and will update with pics tomo.
1st Frame: Track oddity
Track frame is SUPER light and tight but oddly has brake bridges. No way its a conversion. It looks English, bought off Hilary Stone for around 200 quid and he didnt have a clue what it was either. Looks like a Roberts. Ridden for a couple of years and has a couple of small dents now but nothing that effects the ride.
Looking for £120 for it, but also open to offers.
Pinnacle Arkose Frame, 52cm/Medium, suits folks from about 5'6" to 5'10". Gubbins - HS, BB, Callipers and SRAM 1x11 Apex Chainset. All decent but used condition.
Looking for £160 for it, which I think is a decent price?
Collection only, Walthamstow E17.
Pics and dims tomo.
Oh think I have a few Campag Record Headsets and Pista cranks kicking about so if anyones after them let me know...
I'll grab some in a sec, which frame in particular?
Does that thing fit fenders?
I’ve had guards on both! They were pretty tight on the track thing though.
Like 25c with guards?
I have a feeling I was running 23’s. It mayyyyy fit 25 and guards but I wouldn’t count on it.
What's the sizing on the not a roberts?
I've been useless as ever with these, but I predict I'm going to get an earful for having too many bikes rather soon so decent drops on both of these just so I dont get it in the neck too much (more).
Faux Roberts £90
Is the arkose still available? Dibs if so
Yep! Pick it up this weekend and we can call it £100.
Arkose gone, measurements for the Faux Roberts incoming...
any pics of the Roberts with wheels in it to see the geo?
Ok, measurements, 55cm tt Ctc, 56cm st ctc.
Pic with rear wheel... front end equally as tight but I don’t have a front wheel at hand.
The arkose was sold but is being returned due to a “deep scratch” and damage to the forks which I somehow never saw when it was in my possession. As a result I’ll offer the lot for £90.
Bump and price drop on the track frame. £75 and it yours inc bb and headset.
Arkose is back and it’s fine, slight damage to the forks dropouts but nothing that would effect anything unless you are a massive bed wetter.
Any chance you could send pictures of the scratches on the Arkose and the dropouts? Also would you be willing to post it to Dublin?
I’ll prob do a new post soon and get pics then but they are nothing to worry about unless you are a complete wet blanket.
I’m afraid I’m too lazy to post though.
No worries and sure if you happen to change your mind at any point let me know.
Hi mate, pm sent re: arkose...
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
