So I've always wanted to try one of these.
The 1 1/8" steerer version in their nice Dedacciai 14.5 steel.
Would be looking a 55cm if anyone has one please. Condition not important as long as there are no dents, cracks etc.
F&F preferred but would consider a whole build
Would require P&P to Portsmouth please otherwise my brother could collect if near Brentford.
Thanks all. Tom
Tom, sure you are aware of the seat post shim cracking issues on these?
Hey there. Ah no I wasn’t, thanks for the heads up. Was that a certain year/model or is it across them all? Thanks again, shall keep that in mind if one comes up. Just bought some crazy CK and Nitto stuff from Japan for the new Affinity so in no rush here ;) t
They came with a shimmed seat tube. The shim wasn't long enough so didn't extend down past the seat tube seat stay cluster. As a result they cracked.
Someone else will be able to verify if they ever sorted the issue / it only affected the later ones / if they are all affected. @hippy cracked, my Potenza did plus a load of others. Some people on here have brazed them to save the frames.
Special price for you
Thanks folks, appreciated. Man it appears they all were blighted with that problem, shame!
@hippy thanks but that all looks a bit beyond me for fixing etc. Is that an early one aswell? T
I think this is 2005 model. I was going to get rid of it but instead I just stuck in a long seatpost that @Aroogah kindly donated to slow down the snap and it's now covered in beer labels and used for pub/shop trips. It got a brake lever and bar tape upgrade last year from @picco too because I hated the old 600 levers that were designed for female midget hands.
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.
