This is a new frame and forks, built up but never ridden. A disagreement with the customer resulted in it's return. Dimensions are 60cm to top of seat lug, 60cm top tube, 2.5cm extension on the head tube making it equivalent to a 62cm approx "normal" frame it will take 28mm tyres with mud guards on 59 drop brakes, all the usual braze ons. A cane Creek headset is fitted. This frame was invoiced at around £1300 looking for £450. Any questions, please ask
Lovely frame shame it's far too big for me
Your e-stay Vulcan with multi fades paint job was my absolute dream bike as a young teenager 😊
I salute you
I would like to provisionally dib's this please.
Will yes / no tonight.
Not being completely familiar with this "dibs" thing can I assume that you want first claim on it and will let me know tonight if you want it?
That is correct.
Need to check I have the funds, which I will do as soon as I get home.
I'll take this if Jingle_Jangle does not. 2nd DIBS. Thanks
I would like to take this please.
You got it!!
This is lovely. A very good purchase @Jingle_Jangle
Lovely. Very nice offering @DaveYates
As per the thread this frame is now sold
build thread please!
Sells Roberts as a ‘project too far’ then buys a near identical frame from Dave
a near identical frame
a near identical frame
It's not really though.
I have just started a new job that requires a fairly long commute (Greenwich to Chiswick).
Took my 'winter bike' for a service and it needs lot of work. In theory, I'm gonna strip it and sell the frame, then turn the Dave Yates into a commuter, with Guards / Racks etc.
Couldn't do that with the Roberts.
Such a nice frame...
@DaveYates: Does this protruding head tube geo make for a stiffer frame compared to a head tube that ends at the top tube but with a longer seat tube? Or is this to bring the bars up but keep the stand over height low? Thanks!
Also interested in that question/answer
Have a Bob Jackson (sorry) with this ‘Mexico’ (is that right?) feature
Does make for greater comfort on drops if you’re an old get like me
I was told its called "Freuler" geometry, named after some lanky bastard.
huh, didn't know about Freuler, that's interesting!
ah yea this guy:
When you simply must have a slammed stem!
Didn’t pegoretti call it a ‘dropped top tube’ or some bollocks?
