    Rick Powell (?) / Giant Cyclocross

    Thanks Old Ned for the history info. Lots of things got in the way of this bike but finally getting some time to build it up. Wheel build is nearly finished. I was going to go with a 1x8 drivetrain using the bar end shifters but have recently been doing more day rides mixing up road and...

    Re: '94 Marin Pine Mountain. Anyone else found the fork trail on these to be too high? I've calculated it at 78mm. I'm sort of used to it now but I used to find it would steer tighter and tighter into corners at lowish speeds.

    Late 90's Hand built Argos Racer 59cm *SOLD* £300

    Re: Possibly interested, just a few questions: 1. Are the wheels tubular or clincher? 2. What is the crank length (should be stamped on the inside face of the crank, 170mm etc.) 3. What is the length of the toptube measured from the centreline of the seattube to the centreline of the headtube...

    Rick Powell (?) / Giant Cyclocross

    Re: Thanks for the replies. Good to see the frame number style matches. The Schwalbe CX Pro looks useful for narrow clearance frames although I'm hoping to run tubeless to be able to run low pressures (for racing). I've picked up some Vittoria Terreno Wet TNT 700x31C tyres which measure...

    Rick Powell (?) / Giant Cyclocross

    Re: I spoke to Dave Marsh on the phone who said it probably was a Rick Powell based on the serial number. I've seen a few photos of similar frames with similar paint jobs being described as riden by a Giant cyclocross team, but nothing other than that. Perhaps the SBDU similarity makes sense...

    Rick Powell (?) / Giant Cyclocross

    Re: Decided to get it enameled at Argos Cycles. Turns out the chainstays were rusted from the inside and needed replacing. On the plus side this allowed them to rebuild it with more tyre clearance!

    Woops - hope the photos work now. I was surprised by 75 degree too - perhaps I should re-measure. Note I think the front tyre was inflated when I measured.

    Rick Powell (?) / Giant Cyclocross

    Recently picked up a cyclocross bike badged as a Giant, however frame number (DD556) suggests it was built by Rick Powell of DD Enterprises based on previous topics (see here). Rear dropout is stamped Reynolds. Takes a well-fitting 27.2 mm seatpost, which along with the fork weight suggests to...
