It's with a heavy heart, I'm putting my 1998 Explosif frame up for sale, however as I haven't ridden it for over a year, I can't justify hanging on to it anymore.

It's a 19 inch frame, and as you can see from the photos is in well worn standard paint. I've had this frame for about six years, and during that time there was a two year period where I was using it almost daily (not to commute, but for after work rides). I think the photos show up the scuffs and chips in the paintwork best, but there are absolutely no dents on the frame.

It might be that the new owner will want to have the frame re-painted, but I'm a glutton for original paint, and that's why it hasn't been done by me.

I'm after £135 this includes postage to mainland UK (not highlands and islands) and all Paypal fees, so you would need to pay me by normal means, not gift. If you are interested please post here first, followed by a PM. If you have any questions, or require more photos, please ask. I will not be able to send it out till Thursday, but I can assure you it will be exceptionally well wrapped.

I'm sure the answer is 22.5" but could I get a TT measurement.

Very interested if it is or longer (fingers crossed) ......

I've always used a 27.0, so I think a 27.2 would be too much, sorry!
