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.

Here you go ibbz, hopefully it will fit.

Man - that .... is ........... perfect!


It really isn't, there are a few chips, digs and scratches around it, but with some careful touching up, it should present quite well. Tioga avenger headset and logic fork still in place too which is nice. CtC it comes up as 18" and top tube is 22.

That looks lovely - Columbus genius - looks very nicely made


I don't know anything about it, but that looks really nice and not really that expensive. It's definitely too small for me ..... isn't it?

It’s not that expensive and it looks like an L size.. the finish and joins look very nicely done - I guess this would’ve been a higher end frame - I might email BLB to ask about it

If you email, could ypu check whether the seat tube is measured C-C or C-T? :facepalm:

I'd be interested to find out more about it - maybe some of our Italian members can shed some light on it.

I’ve emailed them with your questions. Let’s see what they say.
