Nice choice of frame, i have 2 Concordes :D . Damn heavy but they rip along on the flat like nobody's business.

No single speed lives here anymore. Unless I throw one together on the concorde?

Sure I'll build a ringlespeed for raturday...

I seriously thought you guys had Concorde PDMs like this, they look the bombs.

I got single speed already, now ride the very modern Dolan or just ride the Verty & not change gears, hmmm decisions, decisions, decisions.


Maybe I ride the Verty this Raturday as a single, lemme see 53/17 or 53/18, the Dolan is 51/17, 53/18 is pretty close. Want me to cable tie the shifters ?

Raleigh's finished chaps - in the Raleigh thread. not sure if it'll be right for this Saturday, needs a proper shakedown first. Thanks for all the advice and inspiration.

Holy cr@p, I own one & never thought that was it's market value.


Also noticed the 4130 CroMo sticker just below the seat clamp, that confirmed a suspicion.

Might have to bookmark it, see if it sells or not, I actually have a sister in law who lives in Adelaide, maybe I should buy it & have a pair.

He thinks its the real deal, but I'm not convinced. Perhaps we should ask framefinder.

Well the next time i'm down there i'll probably be on my Dawes singlespeed, if i have a mechanical with that i should give it away :lol: .

Although i could also go with the Viscount Sebring that's slowly taking shape. In either case it won't be for months, stupid job :evil: .

i think if the seller actually punched himself in the face when he took the pic, it would have been less shakey.

So I've decided it's all too hard and expensive for the moment to build the simoncini as a full retro bike.

For the time being its going to be a fixie/SS.

Is one allowed to ride these monstrosities with you guys? :mrgreen:
