I am selling a bike and a frame. I wouldn't normally post something like this on here, but I noticed interest in Stainless Steel on here a while ago, so thought it may be of interest.
I'm asking £2200 for the bike, but will come down for retrobike people as it's served me well in the past. Frame only around £1200.
I'll try to get some better pics if we get any sunshine soon! These pics don't do it any justice at all.
I had these frames built for me to sell last year, but other business interests got in the way and I never got around to promoting them. Now I am finishing up in this business altogether to move on to something else, so these bikes are for sale at a very much reduced price, and an absolute bargain. For those not familiar with stainless steel, the frames alone sell for £2,500 or more, most are £3,000. These particular frames were built in the USA by one of the foremost builders of KVA stainless steel frames (he is now selling his frames for $3,000 USD, plus UK import tax & shipping if you wanted one over here).
The bike built up at the moment is the 58cm, but I also have a 54cm frame, so that can be built up instead, or either frame for sale alone.
Stainless steel is becoming the flagship of many brand's ranges and is being used next year by the new Madison Genesis UK road pro road race team. The metal is harder than regular steel and so the bike rides stiffer and faster, while still giving most of that steel forgiveness. It is a great bike to use all year round, being very tough and very resistant to corrosion. You could even get it painted to toughen it up even more, although that may spoil some of it's beauty! Being stainless, it is obviously very resistant to corrosion, but it benefits from the occasional polish.
The rest of the bike is specced and built by me, and I have many years building very high end bikes for plenty of high profile people, so you can be confident that it is to a high standard.
I have chosen the spec to be entry level, with a view to upgrades. It is a great bike for the winter and all-round at the moment, but plenty of people decide to then use stainless as their main bike, in which case a wheel and groupset upgrade will transform it into a very light, fast, comfortable bike capable of racing if need be.
It looks stunning in bare metal frame, chrome Campag Veloce kit, and I have fitting a few anodized gold parts to really make it stand out in a crowd.
The full spec is as follows:
Wheels: Campag Kamsin
Groupset: full Campag Veloce, compact 172.5 chainset, 12-26 cassette (or similar, can't remember exactly right now)
Forks: Deda carbon
Bars, Stem, Seatpost: KCNC alloy
Saddle: Selle Italia X2 flow
Please ask me any questions, I am open to suggestions and possibilities, try me.
Above all, a chance to pick up an amazing bike for a bargain price. I know it's a lot of money, but it's great value!
