  1. DCLane

    DCLane Found in the Yorkshire hills ...

    Collected this evening. It's had one owner since new and he clearly was upset to let this bike go as it was a present from his dad, but was moving later this month.

    The good: All original, except for more recent tyres. Original brake pads, cables, everything and it all works. Shimano Exage 500 throughout. And the purple frame was hardly marked.

    The bad: one toe strap was broken and bar end plugs missing. Oh, and the big one - the seatpost is stuck :cursing: . I've put penetrating oil down it for 24 hours and we'll see.

    If interested in the bike, ask for a better picture of the phoenix tubing sticker. As sometimes it’s only one tube!

    Yes that’s a distinct possibility, a mixture of Phoenix and Tange? That would explain the generic Cro Mo sticker!
