Advertised for £1199 but offered £799 to watchers.
It’s a lovely condition bike - 18”. I’ve been tempted but not sure whether it’ll be too big for me and wasn’t sure whether it’s value would be in that ballpark and should be cheaper. £799 still a lot of cash

Parts alone are worth quite a bit - but bike seems to be totally original bar the tyres and possibly the saddle.

My thoughts pretty much - it’s almost original, but £799 is too much - I was thinking around £500 + but I doubt he’d sell for that- he’ll continue to have it on sale for several months yet.
Personally I’d have bought it for the (lovely) frame and sold the parts if I were to buy it - (if ever)

That’s currently about £380 so I guess a £400 region for NOS full bike is a bargain!
I’m considering a carbon Mi90. Which I’ve been told is the same frame as John Tomacs Raleigh

Apparently it's had cables changed, where needed and checked by a mechanic, yet in the picture the cable to the rear derailleur is missing :).

You don’t think the frame’s worth any time?
