Post subject:  Late 90's Hand built Argos Racer 59cm *SOLD* £300

Hi all,

I'm a newbie to this forum and to online selling so hopefully this post works okay.

The bike was made for me by Argos frame builders in Bristol (not the catalogue store :D )
It's Reynolds 531
Durace gears, cranks (SPDs) and braking
3T bar and stem
Mavic CXP30 wheels
Rolls Due saddle

****edit 59cm (originally measured wrongly by LBS)

It served me well but hasn't been ridden in a long while. It's in need of a bit of TLC but currently with my LBS for a service to ensure everything's okay.

Speaking to Argos they thought £600 was a fair price but I will consider offers.

LOOKING FOR £300

Collection, as I say I'm in Bristol.

I fear I may have messed this up. I did try and upload photos but I'm not seeing them.
Any advice as to how to edit/sort it would be appreciated :)

best,

It's worth posting up some frame dimensions too for any interested potential buyers to get an idea of frame size & fit.

Aaah good point, thanks. I don't have exact dimensions and it's having the mini service but it was hand built for me I'm 6'1"ish so it's in the 58/59cm bracket

If it was custom built by Argos wouldn't they have the frame details on some sort of customer database with a record of the frame number?

Thanks. I'll give them a call and see if they do have anything. I've long since lost any paperwork :)

Talked to Argos. The ydo have paper records going back a long way but it'll take time to dig them out apparently. I'm away for a week from tomorrow but will chase this up when back and/or measure the bike when it's back from the LBS.
Presume bike height and top tube length would be ideal? The bars are wider than average because of my frame.

Thanks for all the advice.

Sorry if you've PM'ed me but I can't work out how to reply. It may be because I'm too new a member.
