Probably rarer than hens teeth but you dont ask you don't get.
I have a 53 square Rossin Ghibli with gilco style crimped tubes that has a damaged toptube in need of replacing.
So I am trying to find a 540mm, 25.4mm, replacement top tube, with the gilco style crimping. To be honest I would consider any style as long as it is 25.4mm.
I have been monitoring ebay etc. And chased a load of framebuilders without much joy.
Any leads, thoughts, appreciated.
Sorry wrong size... the seller might be worth a contact.
Yes thanks I have contacted this chap. You are correct the tubes he has are too big. He did have one tube that was 25.4 but randomly only had a single crimp on one side!
There must be some about ive seen new frames built with them quite recently...good luck
So I tracked down a builder that had a few sets. However, as you can imagine he was saving them for building up a frame ... and understandably didn't want to part with just a top tube leaving the set incomplete!
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.
