SOLD Handbuilt 18inch Reynolds 26 inch wheel tourer

Postby Ddaannbb22 » 23 Aug 2019, 2:40pm

I have for sale a bespoke Simon Davey 26 inch wheel tourer. This was built by Simon Davey for the previous owner who cycled to Belgium and back on it - and then sold to me. I wanted a heavy duty tourer but have ended up using trusty audax and only done light short tours. So haven't touched it. It was so lovely I just bought it without really thinking it through.

18inch. I am 5ft 10 with 31 inch inside leg. Enough scope to for someone shorter or taller.

Reynolds 531 all terrain steel frame and forks, in a lovey deep red. Mounts for guards, racks. Front racks, lowrisers etc. Three bottle cage mounts I think from memory .

Brand new 7x3 drive train from spa cycles - cassette, cranks, BB, front rings, chain - all new.
Mavic d531 wheels on xt hubs
Brooks saddle
Xt derailleur
Desire V brakes
Cane creek headset
Brand new Vittoria tyres
Front dynamo light
Has been helitaped to death.

It is supremely comfortable, quality built and will last for thousands of miles.

I just don't want to post, collection please, but live in ng25 and can meet somewhere if needs be.

I need the mudgaurds and the saddle in the pics is mine. A b17 will be on there instead. Pedals not included either.

£300 please. I got a bargain, so someone else can too - I'm not looking to make anything here and have bought alot of new bits for it.

Cheers

Only 1 question (and probably not a deal breaker!) - what chainrings/crank arms bcd, as I'd want proper low mtb gearing? I'm Southwell-side of Nottingham so probably quite handy. Thanks, dave.

Hi Dave,

I'm in southwell....! Want to pop over and have a gander?

I think they are 110 BCD. The gearing is low and was a spa touring set they do.

Like this. https://www.spacycles.co.uk/m2b0s109p28 ... cral-Rings

Drop me a text if you want to view. Am around all weekend.

Very nice bike at an even nicer price. Not my size sadly.

Exactly mine, am sitting on hands - but knowing in my heart that I could convert my 90's Cinder Cone to something pretty much identical for ooh, about £4.50 and a bag of chips :D
