Bob Jackson Audax - 53cm Sold

Posted on
  • Hi all,

    Selling my Bob Jackson Audax - bought the frame and all of the parts new. Built it up, but have barely ridden it, i'd guess fewer than a couple of hundred miles. Can't justify having such a good looking bike gathering dust in my shed.

    Bob Jackson Audax Frame - 53cm/21.5" square Reynolds 631
    Handbuilt dyno wheels - SP dynohub
    Son Edelux 2 front dyno light
    Son rear dyno light
    46/30 sub-compact VO cranks
    11-30 cassette
    Veloce shifters and derailleurs
    Tektro long drop brakes
    Stainless guards
    Velo orange front rack
    Brooks Cambium

    As all the parts are pretty much brand new, looking for £1,000 (let me know if this is crazy) easily cost double that. Will happily throw in a randonneur front and rear bag if I get asking price (worth another £100 ish).

    Collection/viewing in Farnham/Farnborough - 30mins from Waterloo.

  • Oof, lovely.

  • Absolutely stunning this

  • Tyre-kicker-question, apologies. Why the j-tech mech on the RD?

  • Wanted to run Shimano hubs, as all my other wheels are Shimano, so it matches Campag derailleur pull to Shimano cassette.

  • I really like this build, well thought out and properly nice!

    My size too!

  • It's almost Christmas, treat yourself...

  • Lovely bike.

  • That is very lovely! Gonna pm you

  • This is the very definition of classy... GLWS

  • That's a stunning bike mate, for sure the price is correct ! Currently wandering to build the same bike, but 58cm... ;)

  • So nice. It wouldn't get enough use with me either but it's lovely!

  • Can't justify having such a good looking bike gathering dust in my shed.

    I would hang this somewhere salient in my house. Wonderful. GLWS

  • £975.00

  • What size tyres fit under those mudguards?

    I'm still very tempted by this!

  • I've currently got 25s under there, they should take up to 28c but will probably depend on how the tyres size up on the rims...

  • Hi Ed
    I will collect after new year
    Merry Christmas

  • Very, very lovely. Did this sell?

  • @Super_Ted What colour is that?
    And what height are you? I'm looking at one of these now for frame and fork and trying to understand whether I go 21.5" or 22".
    Thanks in advance.

  • Fantastic value at £1500, let’s alone 1000! Great component choices. Too small for me, alas.
