FS: Retro Giant XXL SOLD

Posted on
  • Giant Swift that’s very old, very big (about 64cm down tube / 60cm top tube).

    The good:

    • It’s a bike
    • It’s cheap
    • No one wants to steal it despite leaving it outside everywhere

    The bad:

    • definitely needs attention (rear wheel has a wobble, needs a new bottom bracket) however this hasn’t stopped me using it a a commuter/pub bike
    • it’s very heavy

    £SOLD, collection N1

  • Price drop - £sold

  • Hmm, I wonder whether this would suit me. I am 6'2" but need to check my leg length.

  • once had a mate borrow it who was 6'2/6'3 and he was fine on it.

    lmk if you want more measurements, or even a test ride

  • Thanks. I just read the con that it is very heavy which is probably a deal breaker for me. I am looking for something a bit lighter. Sorry about that.

  • no worries - good luck

  • hiya, does it have horizontal dropouts? (looks like no, but not completely sure?)

  • I’ll let you be the judge, never converted something to SS so no idea if it’d work

  • thanks, it's potentially for a mate, I'll chat to them & give you a shout if interested

  • £sold- final bump before trying elsewhere...

  • Will take for 40 based in n4

  • Cool - will PM

  • @absurdbird hey! This any good for that lad? Though might be gone already …

  • I haven't heard from @user120092 yet despite DM'ing 2 days ago....

    So the bike is still taking up space in my hallway - let me know @absurdbird @Skülly. Not sure who the lad is but i hope he's tall!

  • Hey SwaTee,
    Yeah it looks like it’ll work.
    The lad is about 6’4” So it should work ok.
    He’s just started at Guildhall so almost up your ends.
    Maybe I can get him to come and pick it up.
    ( I think he’s totally clueless about bikes but I can get it operational for him).

    I’ll pm you.

    Fanx @Skülly

  • Moving elsewhere as can't sell.
