Reluctantly I can't justify just having this hanging on the wall anymore - so I need to ship it off to a good home...

Looking for £500 posted to UK for frame, forks and headset - less for collection from E8 London

All other bits will be up for sale once frame has gone (and if you buy the frame I will do a deal on the other bits)

Frame: Chas Roberts DOGS BOLX Columbus Max main frame.

Measurements as below:

Seat tube - centre to centre - 15.5 inch (its a sloped top tube with extension above)
Seat tube - centre to top - 17.75 inch (odd sizing so i guess you would call it an 18 as its closer to that than 17.5)
Top tube - centre to centre - 21 inch

Frame details Composite rear stays--
---Extra stiff 4130 horseshoe to minimize brake flex
---Silver soldered Reynolds 753 stays
---Columbus SL monostay
---White powdercoat base, finished in D.O.G.S.B.O.L.X Roberts team colours.

Frame is in good condition for age - couple of paint chips etc as you would expect - have been touched up but obviously is not a NOS frame.

What a bike, one of the greats! First in line for the crank bolts, chainrings and chainring bolts please when it comes to splitty splitty :)
P.s. Out of interest, how much would you consider selling the whole bike for, if that's viable?

A rare opportunity gents, someone needs to snap this up.

I used mine at Mayhem last weekend, and they are unbelievably good bike to ride.

Good luck with the sale.

Bladdy 'ell, and another one turns up. Typical - now that I've ordered one from the man himself.

Good luck with the sale fella.
