Selling this iconic steel frame
on behalf of a friend who bought it from me a little while back. He’s only selling as I have tempted him with something else he couldn’t resist!
I bought the bike complete with the kind help of a friend in the US from a shop in San Francisco. They were selling it on behalf of a customer who had had it from new.
During my ownership I've cleaned and polished the frame and it came up really nicely. The paint job is really deep and looks amazing in the sun!...very difficult to capture (for me anyway) in photos.
I built it up but didn't get to ride it (as usual) so was pleased that it went to someone local who could Link to build thread

Front mech = 28.6 top pull.
BB Shell = 68mmHis quick and brief thoughts on how it rides......
“……after riding mostly aluminium frames, this was a bit of a breath of fresh air!....lovely 'alive' feeling without the 'no-give' feeling of the aluminium. It's build up light for a steel frame at approx: 22lb and it shows in the ride. A reluctant sale, but wadsy has tempted me with a ti frame that I must try!
The frame comes with a 1" Chris King No-Threadset in excellent conditon and is priced at £400 plus delivery of your choice (quotes on request) - it will be well packed as anyone who has bought from me will attest to
First refusal on a nice set of Mag 21 SL Ti forks
to the buyer of the frame. Slight cosmetic tarnish (but better than most!) but work well and have a decent length 1" ahead steerer at 195mm. £150 - Sold pending payment.Photos showing details of any areas of interest
....Front mech has 'pinched' the paint a bit:Some tyre/dirt rub to the paint finish:
But that's about it; not bad for an old frame
Any questions, please ask.
