This is a lovely fast touring bike.

The Seat tube measures: 52 cm c2c.

Top tube measures: 54 cm c2c.

Stand over height is: 30.5"

Has a beautiful Ellis Briggs Reynolds 531 butted frame in Ivory with outlined lugs.

9 speed Shimano Tiagra group set.

Mavic 117 (36h) 700c Rims with Shimano Deore hubs.

Wide range touring 9 speed cassette. (11 - 32t).

Chainset is a 50 - 40 - 30.

Shimano cantis with new pads.

Deda Speciale drop handlebars 43 cm (external measurement).

BBB touring head set.

Brand new Continental Grand Prix 4 Seasons 700 x 32c touring tyres.

Brand new continental inner tubes.

Full length mudguards.

Cateye Velo 5 computer.

Velo seat post and stem.

Brooks L'Eroica 2015 commemorative leather saddle in Black. (also comes with anew and unopened tin of Brooks Proofide).

Lovely ornate brass bell.

MKS touring pedals.

Also has the added advantage of Cane Creek Cross Top handlebar brakes, which are very impressive.

2 x Elite bottle cages.

Also comes with:

The very nice rear racking touring bag as seen in the photos. Very versatile and it holds a lot more than you'd think as it can be extended upwards.

A spare brand new 1" head set.

Cateye front light and holder.

Rear light. Multiple functions.

Rear rack bag cover. (Photo).

Used pair of Schwalbe Marathon 700 x 32c touring tyres and 2 x inner tubes.

The frame has been touched up in several places but it's been done quite well. I don't know if it's the colour but they just will not photograph.

It's a lovely smooth, fast, responsive and well planted bike.

Everything works as it should.

Safe distancing collection preferred from the GL2 area of Gloucestershire.

Payment by cash on collection or bank transfer.

Asking £650 but I am open to sensible offers.

So, I've been asked about size.

Um. I would say 5'6" - 5' 8" tall.

As you see it in the pictures, it's set up for someone in between.

Hope this helps any prospective purchaser.

With regards to how it rides:

Pretty much like a Thorn but smoother and it's much nicer looking.

I am prepared to courier the bike but it will be based around my work commitments.

Courier to standard UK post codes will be an additional £40 and it will require re-assembly as the mudguards will also be removed.

Ah righto. I was sure I put that in the listing but do you know what, I didn't ! :idea:

Wide range touring 9 speed cassette. (11 - 32t).

Chainset is a 50 - 40 - 30.

I omitted this info from the original listing.

Schoolboy error

Very pretty! Can you tell me measurement c centre b/b to saddle top up the seat tube as in photos? Is it a threadless steerer or running quill adapter?

In answer to the previous questions:

The measurement is 26.5".

It's a 1" thread less fork that has a shim for the current Velo stem.
