My Overburys is a later frame, designed around a sus fork I think, 1 1/8" head tube, lighter tube set than the 90's ones I have seen/felt, canti hanger, no chainstay bridge, no rack/mudguard eyelets, cut away dropouts, braze-ons for a chainsuck plate a la Bontrager and forward facing seat clamp.


Roly.

Do you have a frame number by any chance, or better still a couple of pictures you could post...?

I would be very pleased to see it, if at all possible. Also do you have an idea what year it was made...?

After looking at all these e stay frames I cant help but think that with the advent of top swing front mechs there could be some mileage in the old idea. Anybody know of a rigid mid height e stay that runs a top swing?

It's not steel, but the Bigfoot runs a top pull front mech. Or a least mine does (will).

Might be a great buy for the formula, and anyone else who is looking for a quality 1" stem, 3tt. 8) and only £9.99....... :shock:

Sorry for tut delay.

Plenty of scratches and marks but not beyond saving, although it may get a repaint anyway; Odd 'Overburys' decals (as in it has no apostrophe); no model name decals, or marks/fading to show there were any; fully fillet brazed; no rack/mudguard provision; all 3 cables routed along the top tube; cut-away dropouts (unstamped); rear der cable routed along the bottom of DS seat stay
Image

Braze-ons for chainsuck plate (sadly missing, a Bontrager one does not fit); no chainstay brace.
Image

Forward facing seat clamp with neat titanium bolt; slotted canti hanger; seat stay brace
Image

neat S bend stays; plenty of clearance.
Image

Purple metallic paint that I have seen on two other older Overbury's before, needs a polish!
Image

Thoughts?
