    Looking to sell my Graham Weigh road bike, it's a 56cm frame made of Columbus SL or SLX tubing - I can't remember which it is now but either way it's a nicely built steel frame. I had it powdercoated not long ago but it has a few normal scuffs from being lent on bike racks.

    Parts are as follows;
    Fork - Dedacciai 1 inch threadless
    Rims - Rigida Ryde 32h
    Front Hub - Shimano DH 3D37 QR Dynamo - Nothing super fancy but reliable.
    Rear hub - no logo flip flop hub - not the smoothest bearings but easy to replace and no play in them.
    Freewheel - White Industries Trials ENO 18t - I had a trials freewheel spare so I put it on here, it engages crazy quick. I replaced the green lockring with a red one.
    Cranks - White Industries retro mtb cranks (not the American made CNC version but still cool) - To get the right chainline using mtb cranks this bike has a really short bottom bracket, makes for a nice q-factor and the crank/frame fit together really neatly (see the photos) The chainline is spot on as it is.
    Chainring - Talon 46t - I'll throw in a 42t red Talon chainring as well if you want to make the gearing a bit more hill friendly.
    Pedals - Some Kink BMX plastic things, they work like pedals should.
    Brakes - Sram something or other. They stop the bike real good.
    Saddle - San Marco Rolls - Super cool and comfy for your 'arris.
    Lights - Axa Pico 30 front and Herrmans H-Trace mini rear. - Neither are crazy bright but very good lights for being seen and both have standlights.
    Tyres - Front is a Vittoria Zaffiro Pro and Schwalbe Durano folding rear, front tyre hasn't done many miles, rear is okay but I'll throw in a spare.
    Controls - Superstar Stem, BLB straight handlebars, Race Face Grips and Tektro RL721 crosstop levers (with a 31.8-25.4mm shim)
    Mudguards - SKS raceblades - The front one had a small crack at the top and I repaired it with sugru.
    Other bits - It has some 3d printed d/t shifter boss covers. Not sure what the headset is but it's nice and smooth. Halo Hex front skewer. Basic Alloy seatpost.

    Overall it's a really nice practical bike and I will be sad to see it go but I haven't ridden it for a while now and it deserves some use. If you would prefer to set it up with drop bars or gears then I have plenty of parts that could help you with that. If you want more photos or any other details just send me a message.

    I'm no longer living in the South-East but I travel to Oxfordshire often, I can post it or you could collect it from South Wales.

    I'm not really sure what it's worth but I think £550 would be a decent price, I'm happy to entertain offers however.

    Thanks for the interest everyone, the frame is now sold.

    I would say 6ft and up, I'm 5'11 with a 32inch inseam and although it fit me I prefer a slightly smaller frame. Best bet would be to measure the standover and reach of a frame you know fits you and compare it to this one.

    I've had a look and it seems like I could get DHL to take it for about £40, so I could do it posted to France for £240?

    I don't see why not, I'll have a look at the options tomorrow and get back to you.
