Columbus Nivacrom designer select gauges for loaded touring.
18” C-T seat tube.
20” approx virtual top tube (steep slope).
FSA Orbit XLII headset.
Fillet brazed to highest standards.
Tubes treated with frame saver from new and every few years so internals are rust free. There are one or two minor chips and I think the same with a couple of minor scratches.
Seatpost is a Kalloy 27.2mm
Seat is a Marin (don’t ask)

Front, son 28 classic dynamo hub, 36 pg spokes to Sun Cr18 rim good cond. Silver.
Rear, Shimano LX 36 spoke Dt alpine triple butted on drive side with DT double butte NDS to Exal ML 21 rim.Built to equalise tensions between the sides and fully stress relieved. Great loaded touring wheel.
Spare spokes for both wheels taped to seat stays.

XT rear mech, LX front mech, excellent condition.
KMC 8 speed chain on Shimano 8 speed 11 - 34 cassette, all runs clean and smooth with perfect shifting.
Ultegra 8 speed bar end shifters working perfectly.
Pedals, Bontrager SPD’s good conditions very smooth.

HED 80mm stem 1.1/8” ahead. Bars TTT Morph randoneurs 42cm.

Shimano mini V’s recently fitted complete with Salmon red pads, excellent brakes that also work with STI’s if needed. Current levers are short reach Terry levers for small hands,

Tyres 26 x 1.5” Marathon HS308 , the last of my stash of the better lighter marathons. Good condition.

Please note the frame has a little personal touch in that my wife’s first name “Jane” is on the top tube LHS in small letter, actually looks very nicely done by Roberts.

This is a serious long distance touring bike and she has used it as such. I’m a chartered mech engineer and have kept it in excellent condition replacing parts as needed. I built the back wheel I am a very experienced wheelbuilder specialising in expedition wheels, the front was purchase complete from John St Cycles.
Add racks and bags and this bike is ready to go anywhere.
In this spec new price (no longer available) would be over £3k.

I would like £1250 for it.
