For the tourers amongst us I have this absolutely superb Giant Expedition. It is in great condition with just a few minor scratches here and there but from a few feet away it looks new. Beautiful.

Size is 53cm ct x 55cm cc.

The frame is 4130 Chromoly which is a well respected frame material and still used extensively by Surly, easily on par with 531st imo. It has all the touring braze ons for mudguards, racks, lock, dynamo, neat little chainstay protector. It's great, I love it.

It has a high spec from BITD which will still serve you well even now.

I would like £275 posted for this which includes £250 insurance or £260 collected.

Full spec:

Frame: Giant Expedition - 4130 Chromoly - touring geometry
Fork: Giant 1020 High Manga

Headset: Generic Steel
Stem: Cinelli 1A
Handlebar: Cinelli
Bar Tape: New Grey Deda

Brake Levers: Shimano 105 non aero
Brake Calipers: Shimano BR AT-50 Cantilevers

Shifters: Shimano Stem shifters 6 speed - SL-S441
Front Derailleur: Shimano Deore
Rear Derailleur: Shimano Deore
Cassette: 6 speed
Cranks: Shimano Deore
Chainrings: 48, 38, 28 Biopace
Bottom Bracket: Shimano Deore
Pedals: SPD + Flat (double sided)

Rims: Wolber Super Champion Modele 58
Hubs: Shimano
Tyres: Schwable 700x28c Marathon Comfort
Saddle: Selle San Remo
Seatpost: SR Laprade Fluted

Other:
Front and rear racks
ESGE Mudguards
Front and rear lighting with some wiring no dynamo though, wouldn't take much to get it up and running.
Hope qr Seat Binder
