    I've owned this original LR since new. Carbon forks with metal steerer and aluminium frame. It's designed around qr wheel skewers and post mount brakes. I'm not 100% sure if you can get adaptors to fit flat mount.

    It's an all purpose road bike that works well for the Sunday club run, commuting or gravel.

    Here are a few pictures showing the worst of the frame.

    Album — Postimages


    The really big looking ding in the chainstay on the non drive side is the actual design to fit everything in.

    if you need more images I'm happy to try to capture details.

    The hole for the braze on was too big for the fittings expert cycles had, but Alfie said it's perfectly fine to cycle on as it's not cracked or damaged there.

    I'm 5'11" and it fitted me well (I like a lot of seatpost, new bike is also an XL). I bought using effective reach figures similar to my MTB. It's never been crashed, once raced an A4 race (spat out the back about 3/5th around), was used as a commuter for ~2 years (150km a week) and then changed jobs and was only used for road club spins, zwift and a couple of sportives (reservoir cogs & Wicklow 200) each year for the last 4 years (big drop basically as I MTB more than I road, obviously a bigger drop during covid). I've had it with 37c tyres in and fitted mudguards, generally run 28 to 32c.

    Bike will come with the following bits:

    Cube SL seatpost and PX collar (currently fitted with a Thomson one - 20 euro extra).

    Selcof short reach alloy drop bars.

    Rival 22 clamp on front mech

    Shimano xt/ultegra (I think, it's the good quality mixed use one Shimano do) bottom bracket, fitted May 21 and done about 1000 km since.

    Wtb st i19 rim (was the back wheel, hub died and couldn't get a replacement part as we couldn't work out which rebranded novatech hub it was).

    Wtb st i19 rim on a selcof branded novatech hub and disc rotor.

    The quick fit mudguards (that attach to the black tape stuff you can see) are an extra tenner.

    Both rims are true and the bearing in the hub feels good. The headset is also included and when it had the correct preload felt fine but does feel a little rough without it.

    100 euros all in (+20 with the Thomson collar, +10 with the guards).

    Happy to answer any other questions.

    I'd be interested in this, saccades. Where are you based? Thanks, Paul

    :( saccades kindly offered this to me first , but I my 5'11 is a short 5'11

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,106 ✭✭✭Paul Kiernan

    Thank goodness for that! It is a big, big frame. Just looking at geometry now on geometrygeeks.

    Offer asking (subject to practicalities!) in case someone else nips in!

    Tbf, it was offered up in another seperate thread where the OP bought something else and you had expressed interest if the op didn't (pretty sure I'm following the selling rules correctly?).

    I'm based in Arklow but work in Cherrywood so can get around Dublin fairly easy. Just to be clear, it's a disk only frame (forgot to add that bit).

    It doesn't feel big to me, but maybe I like to be stretched out?

    Give me a heads up on when you'd like meet.

    Oh completely. I was trying to be complimentary. Paul was the next after me to look for it too.

    Very nice frameset. Thanks very much saccades. Hope to get it built up as a winter bike in the next week or so. Will stick up a few pictures when I do.
