=== FRAME NOW GONE === (swapped for some nice forks!)

Much as I love the feel (and low weight) of this frame, it's just slightly too big for me :( I think I'm the 3rd or 4th RBer to own it, so it'd be nice if it stayed in the village :D

There's no damage to the frame at all, it's completely straight and totally dent-free with intact threads. The lacquer however is very scruffy, there are several areas of loss, and the rest seems to be slightly 'cloudy'. The photos are quite flattering, but ifyou want close-ups of any areas, let me know.

Aesthetics notwithstanding, it really is a lovely frame - Ritchey Logic (Tange Prestige) tubing throughout with forged dropouts and very tidy welds. See THIS THREAD for more information and inspiration (not the same frame obv!) 8)

Vital stats:
17.25" seat tube C-C
20" seat tube C-T
23" top tube
5.75" head tube

I'm asking £70 for the frame, postage would be extra (I'd estimate around £20) or you can arrange your own collection/courier.

Wow, page 7 already :shock:

Couple of points: I'm open to swaps or 'part-exchange' deals on this, especially if you have some mid-90s Marzocchis or RockShox (80-100mm) with a 1⅛ threadless steerer. I'd also be interested in half-decent cranks, u-brakes, headsets, black 26.4 seatposts, random purple bits, or any combination of the above 8)

Also, I appreciate the headtube is a bit long; I'd happily throw in the rigid forks I was using with it, for no extra cost. They're nothing special (off a Gary Fisher I believe) but they'll let you get it up and running until you can source something better.
