its a 54cm or 21 1/4" sized frame and in pics is set for me at 5ft 10" , frame set is a very little used Carrera Virtuoso that is 6061 grade alloy with cro mo forks so quite light .

i built it up for a mate who has know decided he wants a hybrid !!

would make an ideal winter or commuting use bike as it has mudgaurd or rack eyelets at each end . Gears are a controlled by bar mounted suntour friction shifters that operate on a mix of shimano 105 double crankset and fr changer and a shimano 600 rear changer . Both wheels are mavic rimmed with the fr being a cxp10 with a campag fr hub whilst rear is a slightly wider 520 laced to a shimano rsx hub both are quick release . Tyres are new Schwalbe Durano plus .

Tektro calipers fr & rr operated by suntour sc pro levers , allooy slight riser bars and a massi 135 alloy stem .

all put together by local bike shop with the following new bits , chain , all cables, tyres and brake pads all other components are lightly used items . PLEASE NOTE RED SADDLE NOT INCLUDED IN SALE

so far covered about 20 miles since being built

asking £245 also listed on cyclechat, ctc & gumtree

bike is in NN8 Postcode Wellingborough but would send at cost
