Due to non-paying ebay loser :?

A true classic with a modern touch, Pre-trek Bontrager OR Frame, Original geared frame, painted bright red with contrasting Green and White decal set and a disc brake mount, giving a lively but forgiving ride.

The frame is classed as a "Large" however from the measurements you might disagree, the frame has odd chips and wear marks and a slight mark from an over tightened front mech, but no rust issues, which can be a problem with older steel frames. The frame is designed for a 1" 80-63mm travel fork, depending on fork sag.

When I got the frame I had a local professional frame builder remove the canti studs and a disc brake mount added, giving the back end nice clean lines. He also added "crud guard" mounts to the underside of the downtube and the frame was re-painted red. If you wish to re-paint the frame I can supply a replacement set of decals if you wish.

Seat tube is 17" C to C or 19" C to Top, the Top tube is 22" C to C, 26" wheels disc specific frame

Will include Cane Creek S2 aheadset and Bontrager Seat clamp

First £100 plus carriage and its yours, really sorry to see it go, always was a little too small

nice. singlespeed with disc, I would have done the same - was keen on this myself, but coudn't do it after moving house. Also may have been a touch small.
For future ref, I am 6' with long legs - any guide to size needed?

thanks..

Its a 'large' in Bonty sizing. I'm only 5'8", so you probably need an XL.
