Only selling as I'm clearing the decks and intend to just ride and ogle at the forum.

This is a lovely fast touring bike.

The Seat tube measures: 21" c2c.

Top tube measures: 22" c2c.

head tube measures: a tad over 4".

Stand over height is: 30.5"

Has a beautiful Ellis Briggs Reynolds 531 butted frame in Ivory with outlined lugs.

9 speed Shimano Tiagra group set.

Mavic 117 (36h) Rims with Shimano Deore hubs.

Wide range touring 9 speed cassette. (11 - 32t).

Chainset is a 50 - 40 - 30.

I omitted this info from the original listing.

Schoolboy error

Shimano cantis with new pads.

Deda Speciale drop handlebars 43 cm (external measurement).

BBB touring head set.

Schwalbe Marathon 700 x 32c touring tyres.

Full length mudguards.

Cateye Velo 5 computer.

Velo seat post and stem.

San Marco Rolls saddle.

Lovely brass bell.

MKS touring pedals.

Also has the added advantage of Cane Creek Cross Top handlebar brakes, which are very impressive.

2 x Elite bottle cages.

Also comes with the rear rack.

The frame has been touched up in several places but it's been done quite well. I don't know if it's the colour but they just will not photograph.

It's a lovely smooth, fast, responsive and well planted bike.

Collection preferred from the GL2 area of Gloucestershire.

Payment by cash on collection or bank transfer.

£495

So, I've been asked about size.

Um. I would say 5'6" - 5' 8" tall.

As you see it in the pictures, it's set up for someone in between.

Hope this helps any prospective purchaser.

With regards to how it rides:

Pretty much like a Thorn but smoother and it's much nicer looking.

Well my knee injury has flared up again so like the yo yo this has become, it's back up for sale at a more reasonable sale price of £495.

I am prepared to courier the bike but it will be based around my work commitments.

Courier to standard UK post codes will be an additional £45 and it will require re-assembly as the mudguards will also be removed.
