Bit specific this I suppose but I'm after a road frame to use as a winter trainer.

Size should be 52 or a small 54.

Must have mudguard eyelets front and rear.

Suitable for 49mm drop brake calipers would be a bonus but will buy new brakes if I need to. Front mech is a clamp on, 28.6mm.

It'll be fitted with a 7 speed Shimano 6400 groupset so if its from that era (mid '90s?) and suitable for that quality of kit, it would be great but I'm not too bothered really.

Anyone happen to have anything kicking about?

Thanks.

S'great! Spent a while polishing it and putting rust inhibitor down the tubes at the weekend and it looks nice. Lovely deep metallic blue paint that came up nicely with a bit of Turtlewax!

Its sat on wheels now so I'm happy that the size is right too. I can't decide whether to run it geared or singlespeed though :? thought a bit of fishing to see what else is about might help.

oh... bump! :)
