After A Nice Fixed/road Bike.

What title says really, preferable fixed. None of those colourful hipster shit please. Something decent. Size wise nothing more than a 54cm seat tube.

Sav, I'm selling this. 56cm frame, so perfect for you. £300 for the frameset, and £700 for the Corima wheelset, if you want them.

If not, I'm selling my Dolan Pre Cursa, which is literally brand new and unridden. Built up in all black components, as a stealth bike. Velocity deep Vs, thomson stem, Sram track cranks, Mike Burrows aero seatpost etc. That will be abour £550 posted.

Might be persuaded to sell my Poyner too. Late 80s pursuit bike, built up with period correct Italian parts, and a NOS set of campagnolo Atlanta 96 rims.

Let me know if you're interested in any of them. Will sort some photos out for you if you are. Need to go this week though, because I'm leaving the country and need the $.

f**king hell Doman!! That's too much carbon for me!

The Dolan sounds perfect though, I wanted an all black bike anyway. BUT, £550 is out of my price range at the moment. What size is it? I'm not getting paid from work till the 31st this month so won't be able to buy anything till then but you're out of the country already (when are you back?). I was either gonna buy a decent ish 2nd hand full build or build my own. But that Dolan I want! There is a chance that work has f**ked up my hours so the pay wouldn't be what I'm expecting so £550 mightstill be out of my range. If that's the case I won't have enough till the end of November, which I guess the bike will be gone by then.

Seriously dude I am interested in that Dolan! I just can't afford £550 at the moment! What's the weight of the Dolan too? I'm after a bike to go to work and back and speeding around so I don't want something heavy I have to drag around like my fgfs bike.

The spec is pretty average for the track, so it is very light for the road!

Duuuude, everything is perfect except I'm not sure on size! I'm 31" inside leg and I don't want my nuts to be touching the top tube with both feet flat on the ground! The other thing is I don't have £550ono right now. Probably only £400 on the 31st if work got my hours right.

Don't want to piss you about though, I am interested in it but if someone else buys it before me go ahead and sell it :)

I hjave a 34" inside leg, and the saddle height is about right for me in the photo, Standover shouldn't be an issue for you. To be honest, you'd be better on a 56cm probably, but I reckon you could ride this without being too streched out. Knowing you, it would probably end up with riser bars within a week anyway?!

I'm leaving the country on Saturday, for 4 months, but we might be able to sort something out with the money, if you're seriously intersted. I'll PM you...

It should be with me tomorrow, then I got the forks to cut and general set up. I won't be in till evening to do that though as I'm at work. But when I get the chance I'll post more photos. Can't wait to get it tomorrow! :)

Oh and also, the photos won't be as nice quality as domans leica dlux-5 he took the photos with! I only have my little iphone 4.

I would have probably taken it if you hadn't. Looks nice and a good price.

Will you ride it far? I'm looking for a bike I can use on the road, but don't know if I should get gears or if I'd be ok with SS and fixed on a flip flop hub.

I picked my self up a giant bowry fmx for 220, so much fun!

http://www.google.co...sTVHYfV8QO6vqhx

That bike looks like its stuck between the old track like bikes and modern fgfs style bikes. It's got a track like frame and thin tyres but bmx cranks and pivotal seat. Quite odd haha, dunno where giant was trying to fit this in tongue.gif

on the subject of fixxies, specialised langsters seem to get a lot of hate but i picked one up in early 2009, i don't own a car it has been my sole means of getting about for the last 3 summer holidays, i did 1000 miles over this summer, i know 1k isn't alot for some roady folk, but it felt like a massive acheivement, the bike has cost me 2 chains and one tyre, i'm in awe of how well it's lasted and how little it's cost me, probably a mix of knowing f**k all about roadies and keeping it as is cause i don't know/care to improve it, and they don't really take a lot of abuse, but yeah in short, big up the langster, mines put up with 100kgs of me for 3 years and it's still good :)

If i had the money, id get one of these for next summer.

I had a 09 Malum, the frames itself is nice but no barspin clearance if you want it and it only fitted thin tyres, but the 2012 has improved loads. Much nicer components and all around, nice starter into fgfs.
