Mike Kowal 56cm colombus Foco tubing - 11 spped Shimano

Postby maviczap » 12 Aug 2019, 12:30pm

Mike Kowal steel tubed road bike

56cm seat tube 56cm TT

Colombus Foco tubing

Shimano 11 speed groupset (105 5800 shifters, rear mech) Ultegra 6600 chainset, front mech & brakes

Superstar Pave 30mm wheels, with Veloflex clincher tyres

Planet X bars and stem

Fizik saddle, Miche seatpost



Weighs 8.2kg in this combination, so light for a steel bike

There a bit of rust damage to the chrome on the left chain stay, but I've neutralised it & its stabilized.

I have used it with mudguards and 23mm tyres as a winter bike, although I think its a bit too nice for a winter bike

I can swap the wheels for a pair of Bontrangers with Continental GP4000 better suited to winter riding

No pedals included

Bit far for me. But I'm sure this will go quick!

I'll interpret your autofill "much hard eyes" as does it have mudguard eyes? Joe, no it doesn't have mudguard eyes :D

Thanks mate. Bloody stupid phone! Well done working it out though.

Do you know when it was built?

Don't know why I'm not getting notifications, so sorry for the slow response.

No, I don't know when it was built, but it must be late 90s as there's no downtube bosses, only cable stops for Sti shifters, so purposely built for STi shifters

This was an EBAY purchase from a couple of years ago, as a frame only, so I've no history

Cheers
