Hand built 54cm Aurelius Cycles frameset, Columbus Zona, typical Aurelius wishbone seat stay and lovely fillet brazing. The very best of modern steel frames.

Bit of a bling "winter" bike, or all-year-round bike, with mudguard eyes front and rear, it's exactly the same as the frame shown in the gallery on the Aurelius site here (I haven't checked but I think this is actually my frame!):

https://www.aureliuscycles.com/…/pt­0xsf2ytvcy4qbewk1bycmeu…

Although it has clearance for guards, it's a fairly racy geometry - superb ride.

Really nice condition, couple of small nicks to the paint but nothing serious and no dings or dents. Is built with:

- Nearly new Campag Athena 11spd groupset
- Mavic Open Pros on superb quality Italian made PMP hubs, Continental GP4000 gumwall tyres
- Nitto seatpost
- Deda bars & Planet X stem
- Full guards fitted

Groupset is like new, not even any heel rub to the cranks, and rims don't have a great deal of wear either - maybe 500 miles on the groupset & wheels at the most. Not much more on the frame, which has a few small scratches but no dents or damage of any sort

This is a top notch, modern handbuilt steel bike, by a great builder.

£850 collected in Cheshire

Basic frame measurements are:

Top tube, horizontal, c to c = a tad over 54cm
Seat tube, c to top = 49cm (so backwards sloping top tube)
Head tube, inc cups = 15cm, exc cups = 12cm

Seems to be a little smaller than your average "Medium", and a bit bigger than a "Small"

I'm running a 110mm stem, and with the seatpost set at 72.5cm from centre of BB to top of saddle (in line with seat tube) as shown - I'm just over 5'9"
