    I've got a brand new boxed Conti Competition but it's a 25.

    Not quite what you're after but the 105 is a fine hub, I've been using mine on my commuter for almost 10 years (mated to an Open 4ceramic) with a 10 speed cassette. NOS front and rear set for £54 posted seems a bargain.

    older rims with 14mm internal bead work just fine with 32mm tyres, I've been using an Open 4 Ceramic for 10 years on the back of my commuter with zero issues and I'm no lightweight, in excess of 120kg at times (sans bike weight) and no problem turning corners at speed.
    Just so it might widen your options that you might not have thought suitable.

    In case you don't get any offers of your first options, other alternates are the Ridgeback Dimension, Carrera Abyss/Saruna, the 26" Saruna weighs about 10.5kg according to my scales.

    The Trek FX series comes in a 15" frame and 26" wheels, Specialized Vita come in small frames also, though strictly a ladies the red or white ones that I've seen look really nice and are really just a std lightweight hybrid - I bought a white one for my friend in a 17" a few years ago that she used for work and it was a great bike.

    Luck hunting.

    Ribble have the R872 at £899 for the Tiagra rim brake model currently so with your budget why not buy new? The Tiagra shifters are basically the same internals as the 11 speed 105s - I have both and the difference between the 105s and Tiagra 4700s is barely noticeable if at all (and the 4700s work with 11 speed rear derailleurs too)

    To make offers closer to what you're after what are you wanting to use the bike for, do you want an out and out race frame or something of an all rounder that does have guard mounts like the Ribble?
    What's the max tyre size you require to be fitted, is that with/without guards?

    shame these aren't both 32s or even 28/24 drillings or I'd have taken them

    I thought campag and shimano 11 speed cassettes worked interchangeably, had a guy out in the alps on a raid alpine use shimano 11 speed with his campag ergos when his freehub fell to pieces and had to borrow a spare rear off another one of our group.
    just a thought

    I'll have a look in my parts box, function over form, not after anything classy looking right?

    If you're looking for something different then Stronglight 80/100/200 crank sets can go down to a 28T, SPA cycles still do them in Zicral from 28T upwards, the bigger rings are more plentiful second hand on ebay.

    I've got 105 STIs/Chainset/FD - braze on but I've a new 28.6 band adapter somewhere, also have the matching 105 GS (which will do a 32T easily).
    All great working order and not too shabby condition wise either, c/set needs a BB as I'll be keeping the Hope stainless
    £145 including full tracked/insurance post, £18 extra for the RD if of any interest.
