Tektro v-brake levers £5
Zoom 150g alloy bars, silver, uncut £8

SOLD ITEMS
Blue ahead stem, long
RST Mozo pro, smooth travel and stanchions look good, 207mm steerer. very scruffy. £10

Silver seat collar with cable stop for cantis 31.8mm
Zoom Quill Stem, 1 1/8 zero rise, long

1997 Giant MCM team carbon hardtail frame, 20” VERY yellow! It just about fitted me & I’m 5’10” though it really suits a bigger chap. The frame is pretty tired, the paint worn through in a couple of places due to cable rub and the paint is cracked at a couple of tube joints. The previous owner said they’d been there for years and he’d had it since the late 90s. £35 SOLD

Pics here:

Headtube is 135mm
Seat tube 19.5" c-c
Top tube 23" c-c
Seatpost is 27.2mm (31.8mm seat collar)
BB 68mm
Headset 1 1/8
I used a standard 34.9mm top-pull front mech though it was originally fitted with a bracket and road-type mech.
Fork length required ~440mm a/c

The only swaps I’m after is a good front v-brake front wheel, with silver rim. I’d really like Mavic XC717. Oh and a pair of square taper cranks.

It is indeed 1 1/8. Seatpost is 27.2mm (31.8mm seat collar), BB 68mm, I used a standard 34.9mm top-pull front mech though it was originally fitted with a bracket and road-type mech. The headtube is quite long, I'll check later, but the steerer on the Foxs I used (travel reduced to 75mm give 440mm a/c) is 205mm and that allowed a 5mm spacer under the stem.

More pics here: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... highlight= The set-up here is 75cm from the BB axle to the top of the saddle and a 110mm stem.

I really liked riding it but I have too many steeds in the stable and not enough room. :cry:

If Longun doesn't take the giant, I will.

I'm only in Malvern, so can meet you there.
