I have had this frame for a few months now after picking it up from the bay for £250 along with a bunch of bits including the CK headset and sadly it has to go even before I have ever ridden it ! It measures as an 18 1/2" but when loosely assembled feels like a farmyard gate ! It is really tall ! I just don't feel right on it.
A chap down my road who has had an original Orange Clockwork for the last 20 years is going to have it but as you don't see many of these about I thought I'd post it here.
Going to be built up with m750/760 XT, Pace RC38 Airforce 2 (cos they wont fit my Merlin with its silly 1" headtube
), Mavic 717's, Avid BB7 front disc and some carbon bits. All in I reckon it'll cost £700-800 not bad for a Ti and should be a nice light bike. Actually should have been MY nice light bike
Frame - build by Sandvik / TST so weld quality is superb. 3./2.5 tubing and 6/4 water cut dropouts - lovely ! Just as good as some of the other Sandvik framesets I reckon (Hei Hei, DBR, dare I even say Litespeed) but as its a Mongoose costs nowhere near ??? Weighs 1600g.
Old enough to know better but doesn't.
