WTB - North coast NSW - 58cm steel road frame

Postby aerohydro » Tue Apr 21, 2009 4:55 pm

I’m looking for a steel frame that meets several of the following criteria. Some are obviously more important than others, but this is my ideal frame. I want to build a practical bike to do everything with, i.e. roads, forestry/fire trails, carrying stuff around but nothing like serious touring.
• 58cm (ish) centre-to-top seat tube
• Some decent provision for a rear derailleur – integrated or replaceable hanger
• Enough room for mudguards and >28mm tires
• Reasonable quality steel tubing. I’ll consider another material if it meets the other requirements.
• 130mm rear dropout spacing (126mm is fine)
• 27.2mm seat post bore (but seatposts are relatively cheap)
• Braze-ons for racks and cantilever brakes are desirable but not essential.
• Pretty cheap. I’m a uni student but I’ll obviously pay what a nice enough frame is worth.

Let me know if you have something likely.

Leon.

Hi Leon.
Actually i used to have a frame more or less matching that description BUT i think i gave it away to organization in brisbane which recycles bike parts -
http://bicyclerevolution.org.au/wp/
That was a few yr ago so obviously they will have done something with it but the point of this is, if you are within travel distance to brissie perhaps see if they have frames or complete bikes in stock.
The frame that i parted with was quite a nice one, a large-ish Shogun metro hybrid dating from 1993
Hope this helps. Good luck.
PS i believe there is a bike bits "swap and trade" happening in brisbane this sunday arvo may 3rd, details in the Qld section BNA forums.

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately I'm not really close enough to brisbane to do a special trip, but I'll keep this in mind for next time I'm up that way.

Still looking for a frame. :)
