• I think fixie time is up for me.. :-(

    Haven't ridden this in months so with a heavy heart I am deciding to sell my beloved NJS steed. It has travelled with me through many rides and a single race, gnarpark 2, which I reached the semi finals in.. So it has some London racing heritage as well as some in Japan :-P I used it day in day out a few years ago to commute to uni and work so its been used but not abused. I looked after it and its served me well.. I just want it to go to someone who will keep on riding it and make proper use of it on track/street.. Anyways.

    Details -

    53.5 cm centre to top of seat tube
    55.5 cm cente to centre of top tube
    Sloping upwards top tube effectively makes its a 55 square'ish or long/tall 53

    27.2mm seatpost size
    120mm spacing rear

    Columbus Max Fork

    Comes with Hatta Swan headset. Might need to be replaced as it's quite old. Feels ever so slightly notchy you know but hardly noticeable. It's got some light battle wounds, minor scratches here and there as seen in the photos. Couple stickers on it, can be removed on request but there is nothing nasty underneath.

    The only big thing worth mentioning is the wheel rub on the inner side of the left stay which happened when didn't tighten up the nuts on the hub properly.

    There are no dents!

    Fits 25mm tyres with a mm or 2 to spare on the front.

    Some more info from when I bought it -
