• I'm (hopefully) doing the Transatlantic Way later this year and want to upgrade my trusty Surly for something a little bit speedier.

    Looking for:

    • 54cm frame
    • Ultegra level groupset or equivalent (cable or electronic)
    • disk brakes
    • decent wheels

    Ideally looking for a complete bike, but please shout if you've got a frameset

    Budget is flexible for the right bike.

    Based in SE London, but can cycle.



  • Maybe too big but...

    Ive got a 56cm BMC RM02 frame set, wheels, and SRAM 1x hydro group set, in fact the whole bike. I just stripped it all down to sell the parts separately.

  • Hi Ben, I’ve got a Defy Advanced 1 for sale if it’s of interest. It’s the 2018 model and has only done 300k or so. As new condition. I’m in Surbiton but will happily deliver.

  • Thanks - if this was disc I’d had definitely taken it!

  • Thanks Just tried out a 54 and was right size - if I can source a frame set, I’ll drop you a PM

  • HI Ben (and others if you're interested).

    Bought in 2018 (is the 2017 Advanced 1 model). Has been ridden <200k. I swapped the stock wheels for Hunt wheels which I'm not planning on selling, but could if you're desperately interested. Full Ultegra, discs, 105 pedals, 28mm Conti GP5000 tyres.

    Selling due to buying a custom Talbot (will put the Hunts on that if they don't get sold with the Defy. Looking for £1,000 for the Defy with the original wheels and tyres fitted and £1,700 if the Hunt wheels are left on.

    Here is a link to the Giant Bike Archive with all the specs - https://www.giant-bicycles.com/gb/defy-a­dvanced-1-2017

    Would prefer for someone to collect (Surbiton) but could deliver in London if required.

    Happy to answer questions. Matt

  • @GreenMachine does the defy have mounts for guards or any clearance?

  • @Jackytwoshoes, it does not. I've got 28mm tyres on it at the moment but it could take 32s I'm sure.

  • I've got a 54m Cervelo R3 Disc (2017) model that I'm about to put up for sale. I've done several 200km audaxes on it in total comfort.

  • Possibly a CAAD12 Disc, Dura Ace, with Hunt carbon wheelset

    Not marketed as an endurance bike I know, but it's comfortable for me, especially with 30mm tubeless tyres on the Hunts.

    I normally ride a 54 but the CAAD12's size up on the large side so I replaced my 54 with a 52. I'm 5'10".
    Also in SE London (Greenwich)

    Will get an actual pic, but this (with the much upgraded wheelset)

  • This is a 55cm Enigma Ecroix if you fancy flying the Flag!

  • Thanks Duncs - what would you be looking for price-wise?

  • Thanks DJ02 - think a 55 will be a bit big for me unfortunately!

  • Hi, Slightly off piste but I’m thinking of selling an Open U.P. (Small) with full Ultegra and a pair of Lauf Grit forks plus originals?

  • Thanks PMed

  • @duncs Have you still got the Cannondale CAAD12 for sale?
