Posted on
  • Frameset is unknown steel size 53
    Unfortunately the seatpost is stuck but I reckon some wd40 and a vice would do the trick!
    Lasco 130 bcd cranks
    52t sram chainring
    Unknown 110? Stem lightweight
    Wellgo pedals and straps
    Newish bb
    Onza mongo 3 headset
    Whyte saddle
    aero drops with brand new tape
    Mavic open sport on formula front
    Unknown rear wheel hollow axle 16t unsealed
    Folding mavic tyres well worn but not a single puncture yet!
    Hollow chain new a few months back
    As expected from a used city bike there are scratches and a tiny dent in the tt
    I am 5ft 11 and was okay riding with saddle at this height but would suit someone abit shorter
    Looking for 250 ono collected from west ruislip or can meet within reason

  • With drops

  • Will take 200 if gone by the weekend as I need funds for my new bike can no longer ride fixed due to ankle injury

  • Is this the frame that came up for free a couple of months ago?

  • Yes correct! Unfortunately I can no longer ride fixed after a serious injury on bmx so have purchased a cannondale bad boy lefty

    Was looking to get at least 175 as thats what the rest of bits owe me

  • Wait, so you got the frame for free and now you want to make profit on the cost of the parts?
    Bit of a piss take.

  • Was thinking 250s about steep so changed to 175
    If everyone has a problem with this I will remove and Ebay it!

  • I think it’s the attempt to turn a 25% profit on used parts that some might object to.....

  • I mean it's hardly a profit
    Wheels £65
    Tyres I had lying around but are 40 quid each new
    Hollow chain £25
    Pedals and straps £20
    Bar tape £25
    Sealant tubes £15
    Cog and lockring £15
    Bottom bracket £10
    Parts bin saddle
    Bars were parts bin but originally £40
    Stem was parts bin
    Chainring was £10 off Ebay with singlesped bolts

    If people are unhappy I will remove and post elsewhere!

  • But you are attempting to turn a profit on used parts.
    List it where you want but don’t be surprised if people call you out for being snide as fuck...

  • Fair enough but for 175 it's a solid decent riding beater! I didn't think it seemed to unreasonable as you can see I have been a long time buyer/seller on the forum and have made donations
    Of course it's hardly a big profit considering the time sourcing and building up the bike

  • I’m not questioning the price, it is a lot of bike for 175 but that’s really not the point I’m trying to make.
    Anyway, things to do.

  • I thought you're in hospital recovering from plastic surgery after a seizure? That's what you told me when you changed your mind about purchasing my carbon forks...

  • Yes I am hopefully leaving today luckily im okay that's why I've decided riding a brakeless fixed gear and bmx is not the best idea! I've purchased myself a cannondale badboy on finance as I think I need something reasonably safe and pretty to look at

  • Apologies - I rarely comment, but important to note recovery of cost is not the same as "turning a profit".

    In order for your statement to be correct, you must be certain that all the parts did in fact cost less than the offered sale price, while also making allowance for the labour/time cost of assembling the bike. Fact frame was free is an aside.

    "But you are attempting to ~turn a profit~ recover cost on used parts." This seems more fair to me.

  • Price drop willing to take a loss on this £150

  • Moved to Ebay
