More spring cleaning – 56cm gravel frame/fork, anyone?

IMAG0317

$400.

Geometry:

71.5/73 head/seat angles

55 or 56cm (I can’t recall!) toptube, 57cm seat tube (center to top). Takes a 27.2 post.

Clearance for up to a 45c tire in the rear and probably a 50c in front.

No fender or rack mounts.

Open cable (old school road bike style) downtube cable routing for derailleurs. Rear brake routed on the top of the toptube. Pump peg!!!

For v-brakes or cantis, though I could add a disc tab for you for $75. Note that the fork cannot have a disc tab added (fork blades not strong enough) but the frame will take a Ritchey WCS or similar 1 1/8 carbon fork if you want to go that route.

Powdercoat 5/10 – lots of scratches and little spots (dropouts) missing, but functional enough for a few more years of use. Want a new powdercoat? No problem, $175 gets you any color you want.

I have a set of tektro mini-vs and some 175mm 105 cranks that I’ll throw in free. Other parts available if you want to order a full kit, of course.

This is a pretty light (3.6#) frame and would be best for a rider under 160 pounds.
