So... Have used all of these as commuters in recent years and clearing out. (I have now got a foldable utility velomachine).
Dibs and PM, as per usual. Cheers (Please send a PM with your Dibs, so I know you mean it!)
1. Trek 730 Multitrack, Tru-Temper steel
Clearance for 700x42
Mudguard and fender eyelets.
Requires standard 1 inch threaded ISO headset. (I have an unused Tange seiki I will add for £10, not fitted).
Cool stainless steel seatpost included (not heavy)
Plenty scuffs to paint inc big patch of paint lost to cable rub on headtube. But no dents.
Nice rear canti routing (use the little tube), or full housing for V
135mm rear spacing. Could use a 130 as it's steel.
53.5 seat tube C-T, 56.5 top tube C-C
£50 plus £15 postage. SOLD
2. Claud Butler Dalesman, Reynolds 631.
700c, Clearance for 700x42
Mudguard and fender eyelets
Lovely lugged fork
Will need a standard 1 1/18 threadless headset (I am keeping the one fitted).
Pics show built up for commuting - will strip it down. Will leave the Shimano downtube cable stops is desired.
Rear canti or V routing.
Was sold as a drop bar bike I believe, but quite long and short headtube, so works better as a flat bar. Similar in geo to a 50-54 surly Cross Check in that respect
Would make a rowdy gravel bike with 40+ tyres, or sensible commuter like I have used.
2 very shallow dents on top tube - one under the clear frame tape, one near to the seat tube, by the CB signature.
Both smaller than a baby's fingernail. Hard to see in photos.
pictured 27.2 seatpost included.
Will include the pictured SKS 45mm mudguards for £6 extra. Obviously trimmed to fit this frame.
Could include the pictured cranks too - Deore triple, for £10
Obviously it's built up and a bit mucky. I will strip and wipe it down. No major areas of bare paint/rust or salt corrosion - I have always used it with mudguards.
You may notice I have used an ugly steerer extender. I set this up after hip surgery - there is enough steerer for approx 30mm of spacers under stem. I am particularly broken in this respect.
52 seat tube C-T, 56.5 top tube C-C
135mm rear spacing.
£65 plus £15 postage
3. Holdsworth Road frame, Reynolds 501.
Inc. Shimano long drop brakes. Rear drilled for a modern recessed nut brake, including drilled radiused washers for best interface with brake bridge
This is the one I regret selling most as it did me for a year commuting to a new job and is weirdly the comfiest frame I have owned - long chainstays maybe.
Inc Tange headset. Smooth though probably could do with some grease.
Long drop brakes, so clearance for 28mm tyres plus mudguards.
Can include the pictured mudguards (but probably need removing for postage) - SKS 42mm wide.
Horizontal dropouts (would suit fixed/SS but be kind to it!).
Can include pictured Stronglight cranks if you need them - removed in box for postage.
UN55 BB, fitted with plenty grease.
No dents, some scratches and rub to paint. Most notably where front brake has contacted frame near 501 sticker.
Pictured 27.0 seatpost included - not very trad but was the only 27.0 one I had.
Pictured 105 DT shifters not included. Can add some Shimano cable stops for £4.50
128mm-ish rear spacing. I think it was probably 126mm, but I have used 130mm wheels fine in it.
54cm seat tube C-T, 56cm top tube C-C. Suited me with flat bars.
£55 plus £15 postage SOLD
Pics incoming. Go back to bed.
What is the rear OLD / spacing on the Trek? 135mm? Or 130mm Quite fancy that.
135mm. Updated. But it's steel, so...
Dibs the trek please, I'll pm later thanks
Please PM as soon as you can to confirm. Cheers.
Second dibs on Holdsworth. Will Pm now
If I put drops and fat knobblies on that butt ugly Claud Butler frame I bet someone snaps it right up.
nth dibs on the trek, is postage there because you're not in London or just as an option? Assuming its probably sold by now anyway. I'm leaving the city for the countryside of the west mids in a few months and that would make a great typical retro-gravel project!
Would deffo go for the Butler if I was in the UK, really good value!
Not in London. (Never again). No offence ;)
It has dibs but keeping note of who is next in the queue(s)
