FS: Road Training / Commuting Bike

by andyspaceman   April 23, 2009  

For sale – a fast and functional commuting / training bike, fully mudguarded-up, ready for the British summer Wink

Pics here: http://andyjwhit.fotopic.net/c1686967.html

It’s a no-nonsense 6061 alloy frame with a cromoly fork (actually a Ridgeback Genesis Day 00 frame & fork), kitted out with hard-riding quality components, ready for the rigours of training rides and commutes all year round.

It’s a 56cm frame (centre to top of the seat tube), with a 57.5cm horizontal top tube measurement. Best suited to riders around 5’11, 6’ or thereabouts. I’d describe handling as ‘snapily confident’ and while it’s not an ultra-light race frame, it comes up to speed quickly, climbs well and will cruise as fast as your legs can push it along.

I’ve put around 600 commuting miles on it in the past 12 months, so the groupset hasn’t seen too much wear, but I ride my singlespeed more and need the space in the shed for another project.

Close-up there is some minor cosmetic wear, though much of the frame has been protected with the black stick-on plastic visible in the pictures.
