Ultimately I felt like the bike was too special for what I wanted it for. I never said I rode it 300 miles over 5 years, I rode it for a few months then disassembled it and moved parts over to something less precious and stored the Saffron. I kept the frame with the intention of building up a Sunday best but my motivations in cycling changed. I have other bikes which I've ridden far more - I'm having a good clear out now and it feels like the right time to get this wonderful frame to someone who will love it.
Whilst some of these details are probably relevant to the sale, I would appreciate it if we leave this kind of input out of the thread..
