This is a lovely fast touring bike.

The Seat tube measures: 52 cm c2c.

Top tube measures: 54 cm c2c.

head tube measures: Just under 11 cm.

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) 700c Rims with Shimano Deore hubs.

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

Chainset is a 50 - 40 - 30.

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.

Lovely ornate brass bell.

MKS touring pedals.

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

Also comes with:


Cateye front light and holder.

Rear light. Multiple functions.

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.

Everything works as it should.

Safe distancing collection preferred from the GL2 area of Gloucestershire.

Payment by cash on collection or bank transfer.

Asking £475 but I am open to sensible offers.

Post subject:  Re: Size

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.

Thread amended as it's a 52 cm which is 20.5" and not the 21" as I'd listed it as.

I wish I'd known the correct size when it first went up for sale, I'd of probably bought it!

I got a late 90s Roberts (Clubman I think). I'll stick a build thread up soon. Trying to give this thread a bump, since it really seems like someone should pick this up. Looks like it's got clearence for wider tyres than my roberts too (which only does 30 with full mudguards, 34 without).

Currently sporting 32c. Without guards, probably 35c maybe 38c at a push.
I like the Roberts. Well built frames from Croydon.
