Re: GT 29er with Rohloff hub - frame size L

Thanks for your interest, Polisman. No, no fittings for disc brakes - it's an older frame. As above, I'm 6ft. Theres an L decal on the frame signifying it's a 'large' - it is a big bike :) Im away first thing in the morning so I'll not be able to sort any better pics until Wednesday. What would you ...

GT 29er with Rohloff hub - frame size L

I've thought long and hard about selling this bike but here goes. 29er aerowings.jpg It began life as a GT Peace 9r single speed bike and I initially built it up using a Sram I-motion 9 hub gear which wasn't too successful initially. Once I was made redundant I treated myself to a Rohloff hub. The e...

Vintage racing hubs - BSA 32h Bayliss Wiley 40h + wingnuts

QR Hubs.jpg The front hub is a BSA 32h 90mm OLN. The chrome is excellent and the bearings feel good. Thre are no locknuts on the axl...

Re: 1951 Sheffield Langsett 25 inch frame and lovely with it

Thanks. I can confirm that some of it is due to go to a good home in the near future :cry: Some bits will find their way onto my Bates BAR and no doubt the frame will appear in the bits for sale section in due course. Not the end I wanted for it but needs must eh?

Clobber for the larger cyclist - cycling tops, jacket - now Post Free

I'm still clearing stuff out and can't really recall how I came to own so many tops. All are to suit manly blokes with a chest of around 46-48 inches - they fit me anyway. Some are unworn, all have been washed and are in excellent condition from a pet and smoke free home - I think that's how you hav...

Re: Collectable and rare cycling books - More added

But that would mean more car-miles, Jim :? I think a motorbike makes far more sense really :D

On a more pertinent note, Kuklos is now reserved for Dave. Thanks
