Hi All,

For sale my beloved Handbuilt lifetime warrantd fillet brazed Dave Yayes Diabolo. I have had the frame 4 years now it wasn't new bought it off here from orange 71. I had the frame powder coated at Triple S of Bingley. I have used the bike as a tourer around Europe as you can see in a couple of the pictures and as a commuter. I haven't ridden it off road. Lack of space and moving now forces sale. The frame is 21 inches columbus nivacrom steel tubing. The forks are 1inch Kona P2 with uncut steerer. It has deore 7speed but really 8 speed thumbies. The front wheel is a Rigida sputnik built on to an XT 36 hub. The wheel is 3 years old from Paul Hewitt. The rear is also 36 spoke but with LX hub and rigida snyper rim. Again slightly less than 3 years old but from Spa cycles. The rear mech is deore shadow long cage and the front mech is LX top pull. The chainset and cranks are LX but with various chain rings. The bottom braket is a 4 yeear old UN54The V brakes are new deore and the leveres are old school short STX. Pictured is a Brookes saddle but no surprises I won't be selling that with the bike but have a couple of saddles I could give a perspective buyer a choice of. The bike works beautifully. Price £400. The picture in blue is what the frame looked like when I bought it. Please feel free to ask qustions or request more pics.
