Kojima Condor out of Nimm - To go to a Good Home

Kojima Condor out of Nimm - To go to a Good Home

Postby Aushiker » Fri Apr 04, 2008 6:39 pm

G'day

A while a go I picked up a Kojima Condor from Nimm who had scored it from a bring-out-the-dead. At long last I got around to getting a front wheel on it (the that come with it was stuffed and has now gone) to try it out and most disappointing it is to small for me Sad

Therefore I am happy to pass it on to someone who can make use of it.

It is missing a front wheel now, otherwise is good knick mechanically, but needs a paint etc.

There is a discussion of it here and photos of it here.

Let me know if you are interested in picking it up.

Regards
Andrew

G'day

Oh it has a brand new tyre on the rear as well. If whoever takes it, they can have the matching front for $20.

G'day

Seat tube (centre of crank to top of tube) is approximately 53 cm and the top tube lenght (centre of stem to centre of seat post) is approximately 57 cm.

My CRX 1 is 55 cm and 57 respectively. I find the bike a little cramp for me, so assume that the seat tube is the issue.

Perhaps a longer seat post Andrew? Still might feel cramped, but it seems pretty close.

Hi Jason

I had the seat height okay. I just felt a bit cramped up over the bars, as if it should be a bit longer in the top tube.

This may be just because I am not familiar with the riding position of course. I might try and score a front wheel on the cheap and ride it a bit and see how I feel as no one appears interested.

I'm 5'6" how do you think that would go for sizing?

I'd say it's too big in that case. It was too big for me and I'm 5'7" - based on not having any clearance when standing over the top tube.

Hi

Well if you are too big or two small it will not be a good ride, but that is your call. ALso keep in mind it does not have a front wheel and will now have an old tyre on the rear or at least supplied.

If still interested PM me. I am in Churchlands by the way.
