Thorn Club Tour 572S - only £600 and will post

Postby series3safari » 23 Aug 2020, 5:58pm

Steel framed touring bike.

Size 572S (equates to a “large”, or a 57cm frame in usual speak). I am 6’ and it is a perfect fit, but lots of room either way. Steerer is uncut so handlebars can go a lot higher if wanted.

I bought this frame and forks new in about 2013, and it has seen very little use as I have too many bikes.

Specification:
Frame – Reynolds 725, lots of braze ons for bottle cages and racks

Top end wheel set - Ultegra hubs, Mavic 719 (700c) rims, Schwalbe Marathon plus tyres

Drivechain – 9 speed shimano:

Triple chainset (from Spa Cycles) 24/34/44

Tiagra rear mech, shimano sora front mech, shimano bar end shifters

V brakes, Shimano XT,with Tektro levers (very comfortable hoods)

Thorn Stem(80mm)

Minoura cages (x2)

The bike has been used, so is not immaculate, but is in good working order.

Looking for £700. Now will accept £600

Prefer collection from Aviemore, but could deliver to Perth or Edinburgh. Happy to post if costs met by buyer. Seems to be less than £30 to post a bike.

Hey!
I'm interested in more information about this bike but as I've only just registered I'm not able to PM you - could you reach me first perhaps?
Cheers,
M

Lovely bike! The frame says 725 but your post says Reynolds 631? I suspect this hasn't sold yet as it's a bit of a mix of components in the groupset

Thanks. I have edited to correct frame material. Yes, indeed, a mix of components - some of them quite nice and some very effective. It is a nice bike, but one I no longer need so hopefully it will go to a good home soon.

If you had been selling this bike a year ago I would have been very interested in it as a replacement for my much older Club Tour. Mine was actually a bit big for me but yours would have been perfect. The Club Tour framesets are first class, very nicely finished and very easy to live with. Hope you get a sale soon.

I suspect also the demand for and value of non disc brake bikes is decreasing year on year

Yes, probably true, as we all like a new fangled thing when it comes along.
