XL Dad/rat bike for a giant

Posted on
  • Built this up over lockdown to the dismay of my housemates who are sick of the number of bikes stacking up in the garden. It rides fine as it is but could do with some TLC and/or a new cassette for starters.

    The frame is BIG and that’s coming from someone who is 6’4. Seat tube is 64cm.

    I stripped most of the frame back to bare metal and then put a few coats of clear lacquer on. Original black paint still around BB because I couldn’t be bothered to fully take it apart. It’s now got a lovely light patina of rust under the lacquer to put people off nicking it.

    Original triple chainrings up front and 5 speed at the back. Teeth are worn but functional. Considered an upgrade or SS conversion but left as is because it works.

    New On one OG v2 handlebars, new 100mm deda stem, used tektro brakes, original prehistoric thumb shifters. 38mm Kenda kwest tyres with plenty of life left.

    Front rack needs some adjustment because it slopes forward slightly but I can confirm it can carry your beer and pizza.

    Looking for £70 to recoup costs (+ forum donation).

    Pickup Queens Road Peckham SE15

  • I don't suppose you would flog me just the rack would you?

  • Wish I need this!!

  • Will leave it on for now but if no one is interested in the lot you’re welcome to it

  • I'm assuming you don't want to faff around with Posting? I am very keen on this but Lockdown doesn't really allow for me to come and collect.

  • Sorry collection only

  • This is perfect for my needs and can collect. But maybe I'm too short? 6ft 2
