Offering Rider's 'Rookie' frameset

The Rider Rookie is a nicely made light frame from Rider, Belgium. Internal routing for brake cable. Lugs with cut outs and fast back stays. Columbus drop outs. Perfect for the performance aimed cyclist who needs a good looking, reliable frame for fast tours, commuting or even fixie.

Expressive two tone blue paint. Relatively clean graphics.

Condition I qualify as good. Not flawless, but perfect for the purposes mentioned above. Structurally 100% sound of course.

Sizing:
Seattube: 60cm c-t
Toptube: 570mm
Rear spacing: 130mm

Looking for 75 GBP shipped

Nice frame Mel and at a good price.

But the question I want to ask is -who were/are Rider? I remember a few adverts in Cycling in the late 80's for their products, probably placed there by Graham Weigh who could have been acting as an agent for the UK but not seen anything since. They seemed to have a large range of products including frames, clothing, disc wheels etc. I hadn't realised they were a Belgian company until reading this post.
