    IMG_20181005_170857585.jpg Lightly used Forme Reve road bike that i was told had covered less than 500 miles and looking at the general condition i would say was true , previous owner said he had it for 3 years and it hadn't been used in the last 2 years which all ties in . Size is 22 1/4" or 56.5 cm from centre of crank to top of seat tube , 21 1/2" or 55 cm along the top tube and has a standover height of 31 1/2" or 80 cm and has a flat top tube .

    White paintwork with contrasting red & black decals , alloy frame and i believe fork . A couple of marks and some light cable rub but all in all a tidy machine that would make an ideal first bike or even a good commuting bike apart from no guard mounting points .

    Shimano 3 x 9 sora sti gearing includes mechs and a FCR453 crank set so loads of gear choices for all those hills . Tektro calipers for stopping with . Alex da22 rims laced onto unbranded hubs but fitted with shimao quick release's . Just fitted new Continental Ultra Sport 700 x 23c tyres as original Kenda's were all cracked .

    Full black finishing kit ie 100mm stem , bars , seat post and white saddle , two sets of cage mounts but only 1 cage fitted also has a crivit cycle computer that has just had new batteries fitted this shows a total mileage of less than 200 miles on , but unsure when this was fitted .

    I have covered just over 100 miles in this machine without issues .

    Asking £225 collected from Wellingborough NN8 postcode or could be sent via a parcel courier for an extra £35
    Better pics to follow when daylight

    Nice bike and I'd say a bargain for the right rider.

    Some new red tape would make it look so much more appealing :okay:

    Biggs is a top seller, and a great bike for anyone considering it.

    Well I'm certainly in the market for one, so if you get anything like it just let me know and I'll come and take a look. I'm only a smidge over 5ft 6 though, so it can't be too big!
    I got an old Townsend bike from my brother in law but its just a bit too big for me (23" frame). Standing astride the bike the top tube goes where no top tube should be allowed! :smile:

    Yes that sounds like it could be too big , might be getting a 54cm Carbon Forme but again it might be a bit big
