Not particularly retro, admittedly, but here's my dubiously named Pompino that I use for pretty much everything. If I only had one bike ever again it'd be this. It can do most things, with the rider being the only limiting factor :)
Thank you, I really appreciate your explanation.
My fixed gear and my gravel bike are both 55cm ETT (and both have 'compact' geometry). If I opted for a 21 - 21.5" frame in a Galaxy or something with traditional geometry, the ETT is somewhat longer. I guess that's where stem length comes into play.
Afternoon all, I'd be really grateful for some sizing advice if possible please! I've seen a Dawes Super Galaxy on Facebook Marketplace (with older horizontal top tube geometry) which looks pretty much ideal. The chap selling listed the size as 22.5/23". I'm unfamiliar with old(er)school sizing...
Hi all, as per the title really - looking for a Planet X Kaffenback, or On One Pompino, in medium. Later models preferred ideally. If anyone has either for sale I'd be grateful for a heads up, thank you.
Thank you - does the potentially earlier date cause an issue with regards to parts availability? Part of the attraction for me was the simplicity - cup and cone hubs, serviceable headset etc.
I thought the price was ok but I'm used to the increase in used bike prices over the last two years, so...
Thanks very much chaps, I really appreciate it. It's advertised at £199 I think.
I'll go take another look armed with measurements from my gravel bike and fixed gear. This is a better pic, from the listing - it looks more 54 proportions here I think . It does look particularly nice.
Hi there, I'm hoping that you more knowledgeable chaps could help me date a bike. It's a Dawes Sterling tourer that has appeared in my local bike shop for sale at a very reasonable price. I like a steel bike any way, and this scratches an itch for a steel tourer. It's 8spd Acera with a triple up...
