    Hi, long time since I last posted.
    I’ve got a 56cm Genesis Equilibrium Disc Frameset for sale.
    Bad points: bubbling to paint under chainstays, some surface rust that’s occurred after a chip in the paint I would think. It’s high carbon Reynolds 725. The frame is 4 years old and hasn’t been used for 2 years (kept in spare bedroom - dry). Usual cable rub, chip to rear of fork crown paint. Scuffs inside fork crown from mudguards rubbing.
    Good points: no dents. No cracks. Looks good. Mudguards and stem included (if wanted) barrel adjusters on head tube work. Internal cable routing for front brake in fork. Plenty of mount points, all bolts present.

    I’ve included a photo of it built up to give you an idea of geometry.

    Tyre clearance is max 32c according to spec but there was plenty of room with 32c tyres fitted.

    I was looking for £200 advertised elsewhere but would let it go to a forum member for £175.

    Thanks!

    As @amey says, I have an equilibrium disc. It's a medium like yours. I'm 6 foot on the nose and it fits perfect for me. A respectable amount of seatpost and I think a 110mm stem. Maybe 120mm. Not sure on your size but if it's similar the medium will be great. I look forward to seeing the progress.

    You have to ask them for a cortado and wink at the same time whilst brushing the top of their hand with your index finger.
    Alternatively just say you deleted the email, or save the image above and put it on your phone and pretend it's your phone screen. Ha.

    The current 25% off code can be yes.

    So shimano seem to make everything accept a 140mm 6 bolt rotor... and I ain't buying a cl>6 bolt mounting kit.

    Ha. Oops. 160 on the front*. No worries.

    I'm running a 140 on the rear and a 160 on the back. Will see what my bank account says and either get some hopes or some ice tech 6 bolt. (Didn't think they did 6 bolt when I previously looked).

    Anyone seen these?

    The #buyer in me says these must be shite for £4-£6 but how can they be? Just a bit of metal...
