I’m probably not going to ride this a whole lot as half way through building it up I managed to pick up a Moots...
it’s a beautiful fillet brazed Chas Roberts made from Columbus EL. It is currently setup with 1” Columbus minimal forks (carbon steerer) but I also have some NOS threaded ‘Roberts’ forks that are included with the bike.
Spec is as follows:
Frame - Chas Roberts Columbus EL
Fork - Columbus minimal (Columbus steel Roberts fork included)
Headset - 1” Campagnolo threadless
Stem - 120mm Titanium stem with shim for 1”
Bars - 26mm Soma HWY 1 .42cm width - new Fizik soft-touch tape
Seatpost - Campagnolo Chorus aero 27.2mm
Saddle - Guilia ‘Master’
Groupset - Full Campagnolo Chours 11 speed group including cassette.
Wheels - Pink Chris King R45 32h laced to Hed Belgium’s, minimal wear - 11 speed campag freehub body, Chris King lockring
Tyres - 25c Vittoria Corsa
I’m happy to box this up and post it at buyers cost, otherwise viewing and collection in Tunbridge Wells until I’m called back into the office in Southwark.
I like £1200 for the complete bike including other Roberts forks and a steel stem I had set aside for this, and I’ll also include clip-on SKS mudguards.
I’ll measure up and post the frame dims shortly
Just about to switch in the campag freehub and chorus cassette
Lovely! Could be interested in the wheels if you split for my rapha continental tribute. Glws
Btw bars are 44cc
Your ritchey bars are 44cm? That’s my size! There are some other pink ck on here at the moment FYI - classics on mavic, can go 11 if you get a campy freehub on them or mill down the back of a shimano cassette by 1.8mm)
Build thread for the Roberts here - https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/336717/
Also have a Gazelle track bike up for sale, and shortly a Scott MTB dadbike thing for cheap, an Alan and a Look KG381 rolling chassis...
Ah. I’m not too technical so could be a pain. If you do decide to split please let me know?
I’ll ping you some more details re: bars 👍
You got the Moots! nice work man.
I did! Cheers man! Build thread is here https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/244590/?offset=325#comment15392515 just need to fettle the rear brake fender mount and it’s done!
Interested in wheels as discussed in PM, but hopefully someone will take the whole bike ツ
It’s a beauty! As is the gazelle
^Please tell me that's this sold, so I don't have to think about it anymore.
Such a lovely build GLWS
Might be interested in groupset if you split
if parted out dibs frame
Did this chap used to own the frame?
2nd dibs frame if split
Interested in Columbus fork if split
ha, well he was dressed the same... could have been...
When I went to collect this Mr Turner told me he had also got the matching track and touring versions all ordered at the same time - putting that Emmerdale monies to good use!
interest in splits noted but I'm not going to do that as I'll struggle to let myself part with the frame or the wheels if I do so...
fair enough, i'm supposed to be selling not buying anyway - whoever buys it can then happily split it if they want to
Might be interested in forks, headset, ti stem and wheels if splitting. Let us know your prices ;)
Oh man that's a lovely build 🤤
Bump - adding a pair of King stainless cages to the sale
Price drop to £REMOVED
Visiting a mate in Islington tomorrow so can bring into town if anyone is interested?
