• A few frames and complete bike for sale. These are all located in Edinburgh and shipping is not included in the price.

    SOLD £310 + postage | Surly Cross Check (Size 54). Purchased from @kati about a year ago. Used for some touring and then for commuting and local rides. In excellent condition (f+f unused when I received them from Kati) with just a few small scuffs and a small amount of rust in the steerer. A bit too long for me, so I've lined up a smaller frame.
    Comes with Cane Creek headset, shimano Square Taper BB, seatpost collar. Can also include wheels for an extra £30.

    £55 + postage | Diamondback Apex 18" Frame. Purchased off retrobike a few weeks ago and shipped from Hungary. Two days after buying it a complete build came up locally in the same size and similar condition, which I ended up buying. A nice and very light feeling frame made from True Temper - very noticeably lighter than the tubing used in the CC. In flawless condition and comes with seatpost collar and original paint matched fork (if you want it - otherwise I'll donate it to my local bike coop). Can also include 26" wheel set for an additional £25.

    SOLD £110 + postage | Diamondback Apex 18" complete build. Built up from a complete build purchased locally, but with some components swapped. A very fun and nippy feeling 26er - On One Swept back bars, Shimano V Brakes, Alivio 3x8 shifters and a Colnago steel fork. Comes with gumwall DMR tyres which are a bit washed out. Despite wanting a smaller frame, this has almost an identical TT length to the Surly so also has to go.
    Will get pictures up shortly - this is my daily ride at the moment so not too eager to sell this until I have a replacement - ideally this would go at the end of October.

    £35 + postage | Trek 990 frame. Purchased this frame a while back, painted it and then had some work done by Sam over at Stayer. Unfortunately, the frame is just too small for me - I can't get the seatpost high enough to be comfortable. In a cosmetically rough shape, but I think could be a wonderful tourer for someone a bit smaller than me (5'9"); the inside has had loads of linseed oil slopped inside so should be in good shape. Comes with forks which have been enhanced with extra rack mounts. The included seatpost is in a random size, but thankfully Decathlon stock it. Will also include a shim for (I think) 27.2 seatposts. Can also include original 1 1/8th threaded headset and cromo stem.

    Sorry the pictures aren't great - I don't have much space nor do I have good lighting

  • Hello mate, would be interested in the Surly. What would postage be to London? With wheels

  • Paging @Radski might be something here?

  • Hey, would probably be about 20 quid. Feel free to send me a PM

  • Dibs

  • hello, pd's 990 pending some questions. which year is it from and whats the tt and st measurement ctc please. do you remember the original colours? cheers :-)

  • Hey, the ST is 42 and TT is 52. It was originally a red colour I believe. I'm not sure the year - early 90s

  • hi, thanks for that. too small for
    me so undibs :-)
    year on most of the lugged treks was often the first 2 numbers if the frame/serial
    number (from
    memory) on the bb. glws :)

  • Some price drops. Up till the weekend and then will sell locally - cheers!

  • Pmed about the surly

  • any chance of some more pics of the surly please?

    also can you confirm its 700c wheels, cheers

  • Hi, have you got any of these three left ?

  • Also might be interested in the surly if still available? Am 5"10, wondering if the 54cm would work?

  • Diamondback complete build is sold, everything else is still available.

    Cross check is 700c.

    I'm 5'9" and find the CC a cm or so too long, it could definitely work for you at 5'10" but I suggest you compare the geometry to a bike you already ride and decide from there.

  • Aw man I have no need for it and it's probably too small as a tourer but I'm really liking the look of that 990
