So its with a heavy heart that this goes up for sale.

A custom built fillet brazed Columbus max OR frameset powdercoated and rebuilt with new, reconditioned and NOS parts.

The build thread is here:
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=243910

Pictures below....

Spec:
Caygill custom MAX OR fillet brazed frame 18" (C to C)
Kona Project 2 double butted forks
Dia compe Aheadset
Cannondale stem, Genesis risers
Shimano LX STi units
Shimano LX cantis
Shimano LX Front and rear mech
Shimano DX NOS front hub on Mavic X517 SUP
Shimano XT NOS rear hub (130mm spacing) on Mavic x517 SUP
Schwalbe Marathon cross 26 x 1.75 tyres
Shimano STX RC chainset
Shimano UN55 Bottom bracket (new)
Non branded carbon fibre seatpost
Flite Titanium Saddle

I'm asking £375 for this, which i think is a steal, but open to negotiation and discussion.

I can courier to mainland UK for £20. I'm not adverse to sending elswhere but the buyer has to arrange.

Any questions its easier to email me at jinjrich@gmail.com

Thanks!

this is lovely

i'd be interested (as other would be too) in the frame/forks, if it comes to that...

Thanks for the comments all. Believe me, i'm not happy about selling, but if it comes down to this or my other bikes i'm afraid its this one that looses out.

I am set on selling it as a full bike really, but, as always, if i get an offer too good to refuse i'll consider splitting.

I assume the Kilauea won in the end!

I don't think you'll have any trouble selling the frame on when you split it!

The Kilauea had to go too! Back to my 3 'faithfulls'.. My orange five, my surly and my gazelle Dutch bike. So it could be worse. There's another project lurking but i will start a thread on that soon...
