I've realised that what I end up carrying on this can be carried on something more compact and I need more space in my workshop so I'm reluctantly offering it for sale.
It started as a Marin Pine Mountain with (I think) some damage from an attempted theft, I replaced the seatstays (with the brake bridge down portion of the stays from an old Surly 1x1), downtube, headtube etc to create what you see now.
Handles really nicely, this was my second attempt at a cargo bike and I really fixed all that was wrong with the first one in this version!
I think it's about an 18" seattube so can have a lot of post out for a taller rider such as myself (I'm 6'2) or plenty room to drop it for a smaller rider.
I took some of the parts off it to build the more compact bike I mentioned so this has a m,ix of old and new parts.
A basic spec would be,
BB7front/Shimano rear mechanical discs.
Brand new 20" disc front wheel with double wall rim.
Sram 8 speed drivetrain (X4 shifter/SX5 mech, brand new Jagwire Pro shift kit cable, brand new KMC chain).
FSA Comet cranks with direct mount 32t narrow/wide ring.
Brand new flat pedals (copies of Nukeproof Electrons).
The paint is hammerite with splatters over the top, there are definitely chips and stuff but overall its in alright nick.
The steering linkage rattles a bit since I oiled it, there are grease nipples on the rose joints, pumping some grease into them might quiet them down.
Bike is currently located in Newlands but can meet in town, at my work (the velodrome) or whatever. I can always chuck another bike on the front to get me home!
I'd like £600.
More photos and measurements to follow...
Seattube is 17.5” to the top.
Top tube is 23” c2c.
Cargo space is 24” x 20”.
Overall length of bike is just a hair over 7ft.
