Ah so thats where it is now. I sold it last year as a frame with bits to a chap who met me in Monmouth. Was that you?
QR told me that is was a good quality cro-mo but couldn't say exactly what but possibly Tange.
Looking good now.
Hi, no, wasn't me, sounds like the guy I bought it from. He had built it up mostly and then sold it on. The Cranks on it are 170 at the mo, a bit long as you say, but needs must at the moment to get the thing running. Finding some 165's would be good, not sure if I could find some Ultegra ones tho.
This was the previous thread on this bike:
So its stayed within the Forum and my Son is really enjoying it. We went to a bike Jumble and found most of the groupset - rear clearance on the brake is amazing! must be about 1.5 mm even with 19mm tubs.
Anyway, glad you like it, took some work and pleased with the result.
