Looking for 22-23" frame. Would like to try it out first.
The other day I met a cyclist who was riding a 531 framed and forked Claud Butler road racing bike which was impressively light even though it had mudguards and carrier. He had paid £150 for it, and if I found something similar I'd buy it in a shot. I'm prepared to go down to a lower spec bike, e.g. 18-23 tubing if the components don't make the bike too heavy, though lower spec would mean less ££££s.
Bit frustrated as I seem to be having difficulty finding a bike even though there seem to be plenty available, always in the wrong part of the country or the wrong size. But I did let this one go by bidding on something else that finished later: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/181167558272? ... 1438.l2649
I see things like: viewtopic.php?f=47&t=263646

So, I don't think I have incredibly unrealistic expectations, but so far, I'm still looking
Anything out there?
