  • You may not have intended on posting the picture of the Carpenter frame, but it looks very interesting!

  • Ex display Roux Menthe, Reynolds 525 with carbon forks (alu steerer), fairly sure these were rebadged Ribble 525 frames minus the Deda Black Storm fork as the downtube and seat tube are slightly oversized to top tube as per the Ribble.
    Mint condition aside from some scratches underneath of the chainstay from poorly clamped display stand.
    You can get 28s under the guards easily, I've fitted 28mm Panaracer Evo Ds that measure an actual 31mm on the wheels shown in the photo and they fitted under the guards though snugly (the way I like it). Normal Bidon mounts + third set under the downtube.
    Seat tube 55.5cm centre to top, effective top tube 57cm centre to centre. 68mm threaded BB
    Price includes the guards and stem
    £270 collect North Herts, £290 post to include full insurance.
