Selling my Dave Quinn track bike which has been sat in my flat unused for three years and now really needs to go due to house move. I love this bike but the truth is I just don't really use it.
The frame is hand-built from Reynolds 653 and comes from Dave Quinn in Chester. I bought it from James on here (think he was Pistoffski?) about seven years ago and for about four of those it served as my everyday street rat. It's in pretty good condition but has a few decent sized chips in the (incredible) enamel work. Tried to capture some of these in the snaps. If you like your paintwork pristine, this isn't for you.
Might as well get straight to the catch: I no longer have the key for the Krypto lock so the buyer would have to deal with that. Angle grinder ought to do it.
Here's a list of the parts:
Seat: Dogshit Regal copy BUT I have a beautiful brand new Turbo I can chuck in for an extra £20.
Crankset: Sugino Messenger
Wheels: Mavic Ellipse
Front break: One I got from BLB but it's surprisingly good quality. Lever is a Goldfinger.
Quality of the frame is super-high. As stated, it was made by Dave Quinn who employed some amazing frame-builders. Paul Donohue (who I imagine needs no introduction) built a lot of these. There is a large Cinelli logo on the the bottom bracket shell and I believe the dropouts/ends are Campag. Drilled for brake from factory. Tight clearances, aggressive geo, very fun, nippy bike. Outrageous 90s colour scheme, just getting a little ratty in its old age.
Collection: Upper Holloway.
