Wanted: 58/60cm road frameset with mudguard mounts

    Have the makings of a nice winter bike (minus frameset) in my spares box, so hoping to pick up a useable frameset to hang everything on!

    Ideally a Dolan preffisio or ribble winter trainer etc, but not overly fussy as long as it’s cheap, straight and has mudguard mounts!

    What have ye got for me?

    Would a Planet X Pro Carbon be of interest?

    Its the right size but I’m not 100% sure it has mudguard mounts..

    Might be, can it fit 25mm tyres? What size is it and how much are you asking for it?

  • Registered Users Posts: 802 ✭✭✭nicksnikita

    It can take 25mm tyres for sure.

    It’s a size L (58cm top tube).

    €350 including frame, fork, headset, rear mech hanger, seatpost and clamp.

    I have one of these in size 58 - after buying it I decided it was a bit too big for me so I bought the 56.

    It's in brand-new condition and still in the box. It's never had any parts fitted to it.

    I have 25 mm GP4000s on it which are actually 27 mm wide - I think a 28 will go on the front with room to spare, and the rear has tons of clearance (you'll need a long-reach rear caliper for the rear).

    However, it doesn't have front mudguard mounts (but it does have rear mudguard mounts). I have an SKS Chromoplastic on the rear and a Race Blade on the front.

    There is a rear mech hanger but no seat post clamp, headset or BB cable guide. These can all be gotten from Wiggle (as can spare hangers).

    €150 (plus shipping if required - I've no idea how much that would be).

    Thanks for this, sounds like a bargain but going to hold off and get something with front and rear mudguard mounts

  • Registered Users Posts: 365 ✭✭comete

    Still looking for something.

    Mudguard mounts no longer a must have but not looking to spend more than 200-250 if possible and want something that’ll work with the brake callipers I have (not long reach), which rules out a Dolan preffisio too as it turns out.

    Must be a few auld alu frame carbon fork yokes gathering dust in the back of sheds?

    I’ve a Cube Peloton but it's a size 56...

  • Registered Users Posts: 365 ✭✭comete

    Ah I’d say that’s too small, I’m currently riding a 60cm frame
