For sale is my beautiful custom, genuinely-handmade Roberts road bike.

The frame is built with Columbus Life tubes, with ornate Nervex-style lugs.
It's equipped with a mixture of Campagnolo Centaur, Chorus & Record parts, Campagnolo Vento large-flange wheels, Chris King headset and a custom-made titanium stem.

Contact points are F'izi:k Pavé custom saddle and Deda 215 shallow bars wrapped with F'izi:k Elegance tape.
All cables are new and the bike has just been stripped down & rebuilt. There's also a new chain (KMC X10sl) in place.

There is very little evidence of wear and tear, with the paintwork & components almost 'as new'. The bike was built in 2007, but stored since 2008.

The sizing is custom, but nothing too out-of-the-ordinary with a 51cm seat tube, 53.5cm top tube. The head tube is 11.5cm, with a built-in extension to the top head lug to save on spacers and give the bike an 'endurance' position. Handling is spot-on, with 72° head angle & 50mm offset giving a stable, sure-footed ride.

This bike must be seen to be fully appreciated; It's yours for £975 (was £1100), which is less than the cost of the frame alone.

Phishing alert : "Kate Bryan" - claims to be in Essex and buying for her nephew in Co. Down - using usual "I'll pay you by PayPal and my carrier will pick up the bike" bollocks.
