It pains me to let this go after spending a chunk of time and money to build it, but this is just too small for me to ride comfortably. There are some pictures and some description of the problems I encountered (and solved) here: ... p;t=379801 I will update the thread with more pics later this evening.

In my opinion this would make a very nice summer bike for the shorter person, gears and brakes work very well and it accelerates nicely, the bike weighs under 9.5KG which for a full steel mid spec 90s Campagnolo build is pretty good.

Full spec:
Parts marked NOS/New have less than 20 miles on them
Dave Yates branded lugless frame and straight fork, unsure who actually built this, and what out of (see thread above) but it is very nicely put together and a goo weight, 27.2 post implies a high end tube set and the threads are all British.
Ritchey headset
I think the stem is a Salsa, it's steel and TIG'd and lovely dimensions
New Salsa very compact bar
New cork bra tape
All cables are New Campagnolo Ultrashift in white
Campagnolo Veloce 9 speed shifters, cranks, mechs, brake calipers
BB is a Campagnolo sealed unit affair
NOS Avocet O2 40R Chromo saddle
Seatpin is actually a generic silver one not the Ritchey pictured
New Ashima pad holders and pads
Wheels are NOS Campagnolo Veloce rear, Chorus front laced to NOS Araya rims with DB spokes and original skewers
New Michelin tyres
New Campagnolo 9 speed cassette
New KMC 9 speed chain
Pedals not included, can chuck some flats in.

Frame sizing:
Seat tube c-to-c: 46cm
Top tube c-to-c: 50cm
Head tube length: 7.5cm
Stem length: 80mm
Bar width: 40cm

Bike is located in London, test rides available!
