This is a hand-built frame made from high-end steel. Vicious Cycles are rare in the UK. I bought this one from the US in 2004, but it’s simply too small for me (I'm 6' 4"). The ride quality is so good that I still rode it for two years. However, it’s been in storage since 2006.
This frame is a bit tatty cosmetically, with numerous paint chips and areas of cable rub. However, it’s structurally completely sound, with every tube straight and true. These frames are built light but strong.

I am based in South London. I am happy to ship at cost, and collection in person is very welcome.
