This is up for sale again, though now sporting a shiny new green powdercoat finish. The old coat was tatty and a shocking colour, but this is beautiful, and not built up since being done. The frame is perfect with no hidden dents or other nasties. It's just that I can't be arsed with gears anymore and the chainstay length is totally unsuitable for SS
This is a large frame suitable for 6+ footers, 26" wheels, 80-100mm forks, and a rider who is in a hurry through the woods.
Actual measurements are: 21" st, c-t, 23" tt c-c(actual), 5 3/4" ht.
All tubes are True Temper OX platinum and the frame sports full rack mounts and pump peg!
If you need any more pics, please let me know.
Price is £275 posted UK

Repeat after me ......

You do not need this frame frame to replace your poorly fitting Caldera you've had since 1998

Repeat it .....

I think you probably do though...
and I think you know you probably do too..
just to remind yourself how good a fillet brazed 26" steel frame can be.

I contacted Gil about the decals a while back. They would be no problem for him.

Good to see a Forester being properly used.

Properly used and improperly abused! Rear tranny mount has just gone 6 months ago and keeps snapping my ghetto exhaust joint.
Sounds like a B52! I might have to spend some cash on her. :shock:

Any interest in a SWAP/PX?
