Titanium road bike 58 cm £650 ono

Postby malverncyclist » 10 Nov 2017, 12:28pm

I am selling my Ti framed road bike as per pictures posted. This frame has been custom built by Xi'an Changda Titanium Products, my height is 186cm/6'4", inside leg 33/34 (see seat height, would work for a shorter rider too). It allows for a more relaxed road riding experience. I have had this bike since 2013 and it rides really well, very forgiving as you would expect the Ti frame and carbon fork combination to feel. Wheels and fork have since been replaced as has the group set (latter about 2 years old).

Dimensions are:
- seat tube 58 cm
- Top Tube 55 cm
- Head Tube 21cm (allows for more relaxed road riding).
- Chain stay 43 cm.

Shimano 105 10-speed groupset, Campagnolo Khamsin Asymmetric wheels with CX hubs.
Continental Gatorskin tyres (plenty of life left).
Carbon fork.
Chain about 200 miles/3 months old.
detachable mudguards.
bottle cages (Shimano, alloy).
lugs for full mudguards and luggage rack.
Lugs for third bottle cage under head tube.
registered with bikerevolution/bike shepherd for additional theft protection (I will give you the documentation and will register the bike at your address once bike is sold).

Please note: the Brooks saddle in the picture is not included in the sale.
I would like £650 ono for the bike. If you know what Ti-frames cost, I consider this a fair deal for a bike that is just great to ride. I live in Malvern near Worcester - ideally collected from my home but that can be negotiated if needs be.

A 21cm head tube sounds good.

answer to questions:

1. no accidents.
2. Initially I had 2nd hand wheels and forks on them and thus replaced them when I had the money (the original fork was scratched).
3. Length of head tube: I did measure before posting but can re-measure when back home (working away during the week). CORRECTION - it is indeed 21cm, sorry about confusion).

Thanks,

Martin

Who built the frame??
Using a car to take an adult on a three mile journey is the same as using an atomic bomb to kill a canary.

I have a very similar xacd frame. Well built, excellent welding and rides very well. The pip on back of the head tube is for a frame fit pump.
