Worth it for the groupset at least, even though frame looks too large for me, I am in Port Macquarie this weekend too. I think SWMBO might notice an extra bike on the rack though :D


Thanks to Rheicel for picking up this bike. Turns out to be more than I had ever expected. Its a Bundy with Columbus tubing(at least the forks are confirmed with a sticker), running mainly 105SC parts. Gonna have it in my hands next week, and lets hope that I can fit it. Looks like 57cm.

Anyway, Blackman bike here, with what may be 600 Arabesque

Thanks for that Munga, thought it looked a little newer than the rest of the paint. :?

Love the paint job on this. And the great description. Blue-wall tyres.
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

Yep... that went through my mind as well. Took me a few minutes given it was silly o'clock this morning when I was looking at it :oops:

Righto, who managed to snag the dirt cheap Ken Evans in Perth yesterday? Fess up.

I thought I got in relatively quickly, saw it 2 hours or so after it was posted on Monday evening but eventually heard back that it was sold. :cry:

If this is out of line, a quiet comment is all that is required.

Is there someone in Tas who could help me with these if they are still around, seller wants to sell locally:

Going off what you said, any Vic people near Frankston want a free bike? I just want the brakes and levers from this. The rest you can have.

The seller's response to your question was a bit rude :? .

Yeah I know right. Kinda makes me not want it at all. He prob doesnt have a clue on how to remove that stuff. But AX brakes don't come around at that price very often.

Tell me about it. I'm convinced the average Taswegian is stunted somehow, as you get so few frames above 57cm coming up

My dad used to have AX (or was it DX the swirly script always fooled me) brakes.

He quickly ran out of a source of pads so he ground down regular pads on a sanding disk and cut the grooves in the edge with a hacksaw blade.

Cheers,
