Dave Yates Diablo, with Project 2 forks, singlespeed, 18 inch Now sold
I'd rather collection only, though I'm in S London so happy to meet in town, or maybe Surrey Hills at a push.
£250

I bought this new in about '91 or '92, but it has been sitting unused for a couple of years so I have reluctantly decided to sell to fund a new road frame. I had it resprayed in the early 90's when a rear cantilever boss needed replacing, hence the non standard colour. It is set up as a single speed because it was most recently used for taking my son to and from preschool. It is in reasonable condition, there are the usual cable rubs etc you would expect, and some chain suck damage on the chainstay.

18 inch Dave Yates Diablo frame
Kona Project 2 forks, STX 1 inch headset
wheels - Mavic 231 rims on DX hubs with DT Swiss spokes, Nimbus slick tyres
Middleburn RS2 cranks on (I think) LX cartridge BB
100mm Kona Velocity stem, X Lite bars
XT V brakes, with Tektro levers
USE seatpin, Flite saddle.
