How much for a full Suntour Radius groupset - brake levers, downtube shifters, front and rear mech, BB, crankset, chainrings...?

Everything fully functional and in great condition.

Typical cryptic frame number from years ago.

As mentioned the Capella lugs here http://www.carltoncycles.me.uk/details/ ... apella.jpg were a Carlton lug from 1958 to 1966 and aside from some lug sets sold off by carlton means the frame is a Carlton from that period..............and very nice it is too :) Carlton liked their chrome and wonder if parts of the frame are chromed. The forged dropouts also mean that it's a nice frame.

And there is you conundrum, as the bike sits, it is too nice to sell as a pub beater............however, someone who has an eye out for carlton would only like the frame.....

If you are selling I'd try and work out what frame it has, Post in the general section here with pics asking the question "what frame is this" and hopefully someone (like Spokesmann) with more Carlton knowlege will be able to help.

Please don't sell it for peanuts to some fixed junkie who will grind the mech hanger and braze ons off !

Shaun

Any ideas what one should ask for a pair of 1999/2000 mavic cosmic carbone wheels? Bought as an ornament and sat on a wall for their whole life after doing a single short ride. These belong to my workmate, I am not sure at this stage if they have a campagnolo or shimano compatible freehub body.

Hello!

I just purchased my first road bike, neither me nor the seller were all that knowledgeable, nevertheless, I jumped straight into buying it as a cheap way to get on the roads.

Can anyone please help me identify which model this is? How old is it? I can't find any model information on the bike itself. The gear system is Shimano.

Re Bianchi, very low level I'm afraid with heavy Hi-Ten (tensile steel) tubing. Good solid parts but nothing to write home about. Hope it encourages you to get something better at some stage. Value, tough one but I hope you didn't pay three figures for it.

I support Agent Orange's assessment of the Bianchi However.....


The Celeste Selle Italia saddle alone could bring a hamdsome price on the bay.
