winter fixed

Postby dulux » Mon Sep 20, 2010 4:22 pm

Anyone fancy a fixed bike for winter?

I've got a vintage (classic) steel track bike that I could fit some mudguards on to if anyone was interested.

The frame size is "suits you sir" (its round about a 22"). By magic and some technical skill I can alter the seatpost & stem to fit almost anyone. £400. Custom sizing is free :D

Hi Bill,

what condition is the bike in for using as a starter track bike?
i was going to get a track bike for next year. Would it still be usable or is it only really suitable for a winter hammering.

cheers

Rich,
Its perfect for a starter track bike.
Cosmetically the paintwork has a few scratches. But the crankset, bb, headset, etc are in good condition. The wheels are very good and are tubulars (I've got the cheap £13 giro tubs on them for road training), so perfect for the track.
Its a Moser steel frame & steel forks (columbus sl) but weight isn't an issue on the track (or on the road during winter). I've fitted it with a front brake but this comes off in 1min without disrupting any bar tape. So you could use on the road & track.

Let me know if you want to see it. I'll try and put a pic up here if you want too.

Found a pic. The stem thats on it now tho is longer than the one in the pic, but can be swapped back if required.

hi bill, the bike looks grand.
i'm not sure i'd be able to buy it for a couple of months due to this months visit to Mark Richards Garage of delights.
if you get another offer for it then take it but if you still have it in a couple of months ill give you a shout.
Would the saddle go high enough to accomodate my rangey 6ft3 frame?

Despite this being a "one size fits all frame", you may just be outside the limit Rich :wink:

Do you know your usual sizing from centre of bb to top of saddle & size from tip of saddle to centre of bars?

For a very reasonable fee, it's too big for me but just right for a strapping lad of your size!
Ti Airborne Carpe Diem, usde not very much last year - just ask how often I was seen on runs last winter!
