It's not steel and may be too large but I have an immaculate Ti Cross in XL that I could be persuaded to release (frame + forks or whole bike) as it simply is not getting much love from my rotation policy

Hi there Mr Edwards!
Have you price in mind for the frame? Also could you measure frame center to top for size? Thanx Max

Hi Max

Frame measures 57cm centre to top but with a semi compact design it is equivalent to a 'regular' 60cm - it certainly rides like my 60cms.

Price wise not too sure, it cost £700 for the frame and is immaculate so I'd be open to offers - feel free to PM or e-mail me

Cheers

Ed

Hi there Boyburning.Photo's of my Isla are on readers rides.Put them on there few months back.Should be able to find them on there.Lovely details on there and hate to part with it.Just stripped b.b. threads but finding out whether its worth repairing or whether a new frame is in order.
Thanx Max

Max, yep, just seen it. Very nice bike! Do you know if she did many mtbs? I know she did cross bikes, but the one in mbuk all those years ago (yawn!) was an mtb. Will dig it out and scan when get chance. From what I can tell she only does kids bikes now unfortunately - and works for Halfords as a consultant...
