• For sale is a french steel frame that has been converted into a single speed. Plenty marks in line with use on the frame itself, but no signs of rust or structural damage.

    Most of the parts on the bike have been replaced within the last couple months and have not seen much use, that includes bottom bracket, brake levers/calipers, inner/outer cables and chain.

    The bike is therefore in great condition and has been recently serviced and degreased then put into storage ready for sale.

    There are no seized parts
    No play in the bottom bracket which has very little mileage
    I recently replaced the bearings in the headset and put in fresh grease
    Wheels are running true, lots of life left in the rims, hubs are running well too
    Brand new front brake pads, rear have some life left in them
    Tyres are very puncture proof, not brand new but again, have lots of life left

    The seat tube to bottom bracket measures 57cm which would make this bike a large - I am 5' 6" (normally ride a 52cm) and I ride it very comfortably. The seat post can move down another 4cm or up by 5cm so I would say it could suit someone from 5 foot 5 to 6 foot.

    The drivetrain is 1 1/8" with a 48t front chainring and an 18t cog freewheel - I find the gearing perfect for riding round town and also capable of doing some steeper hills. It has made for a great courier bike, lightweight, zippy, completely solid and needs little maintenance - it has served me well and I am sad to see it go but need to make space as I am moving house.

    Handlebars - 48cm riser
    Stem - quill 6.5cm
    Brake levers - lightweight composite
    Brake calipers - Miche performance
    Wheels - 700c
    Tyres - Vittoria Zaffiro 28c
    Saddle - Eclipse
    Pedals - original metal

    £200 Cash on collection around Sydenham - any questions please ask

  • ack - sorry, will edit

  • Haha I think the point was missed. You cannot have it for sale here and somewhere else. One or the other but not both at the same time is the rules.

  • Mate, super interested
