Aende TT/Race bike

by aende   November 26, 2012  

Vintage Aende frame:


Built up from a bare frame about a month ago;

Brand new gloss black powder coat with Aende decals (lacquered). Lug cutouts have been painted as have the Columbus 'Doves' on the fork crown. Built from Columbus Record tubes (I have some pictures of the frame pre paint)

Selle Italia Turbomatis Gel Flow Saddle
FSA Sl-K carbon seatpost
3T Ergo power MEX (Merckx) shape bars
ITM Goccia 125 mm stem
Shimano 105; DT levers, Brakes, F and R Mechs (refurbished and cleaned - new jockey wheels)
Shimano 600 Brake levers
Campagnolo Record Headset
Campagnolo Ypsilon Wheels with 105 7 speed HG hubs
New Shimano chain
NOS Shimano 105 chainset
New Shimano UN55 BB
Mavic Aksion 23mm folding tyres
Jagwire cables

The bike has completed about 200 miles since build and has been put together with plenty of coppaslip (anti sieze grease) for winter riding. Make a great vintage winter trainer or early season Sportive/Audax bike.

Local pickup from Bristol: PM me for more pics and specific details.

Looking for £500 ono.

Alan "Pongo"Braithwaite,I knew him well,as we both Time Trialed for ,North Notts Olympic RC.He used to build Paramount frames,for Cyril Harper,of A&C cycles of Mansfield.Later on he started his own frame building business,AENDE,and when we first met he was living with and working from his Brother in Law,s garage,in Mansfield,his brother in law,Mac Mumford was also a good cyclist.He built a reasonably short wheelbase machine,and are still talked about to this day,as is Pongo,in fact the other day out training,I met a cyclist who was a work coleague of Mac Mumford,and we spoke of Pongo.The last I knew of Pongo he had gone to live in Thailand.
