Picked up a rather nice Nigel Dean Tour Master today.
Reynolds 753 tubing
Cinelli bottom bracket shell and Cinelli lugs
Suntour XC-9000 groupset
Mavic module 3 wheels on Suntour XC-9000 hubs.
3ttt stem
Frame is too big for me
60cm seat and top tube

Don't know much about these if I'm honest.
Your opinions would be appreciated

Very highly rated, pretty uncommon too.

Bit of a dilemma really.
Probably strip the bike and sell the Frameset to fund a smaller size.
Keep the groupset and wheels for a future touring project.
Very light to be honest

Stripped the Bike today.
In very good condition after a rigorous clean
Some surface rust but nothing serious.
To my delight found out that it has Cinelli BB Shell and lugs.

They were always very classy frames made from only top notch lugs etc.

753 for a touring frame? Perhaps a bit light for heavy loads although it does have rack mounts on the dropouts.

Plenty of all round wheel clearances. Might make a 'retro gravel bike'.

If there is such a thing..................

Definitely at the audax / credit card end of the touring scale compared to truck-like Thorns.
