For sale is a handbuilt Gazzelle Formula Race in 525 steel. This was made by Gazelle's small race department, the same shop that also crafted the legendary line of Champion Mondial frames. The frame is a large and features quality lug works, a braze on front mech, small nib for a pump, internal top tube routing for the rear brake and a 130mm rear spacing making it compatible with modern wheelsets. The forks are lugged blended, quite unique and beautiful. The headset is a shimano 600 (sealed bearings Ultegra/Dura ace), and the bike also comes with spattering of Ultegra 6500/3 components: brake calipers, front mech, crankset(52-42t in good condition), bottom bracket (spinning perfectly), as well as a 3M stem and a pair of 3M RTS handlebars (41CM C-C). The bike and its components are in good used condition, please look at the photos to get an idea of the use marks. The frame is a large, but it is a racing frame: it has been built light with high quality Reynolds 525 tubing and it has that excellent steel ride quality but I wouldn't recommend the frame to riders larger than 85kg or very strong time trial riders, as it has been my experience that at those limits the frame flexes during hard efforts. The frame clearances accommodate 28mm tyres with the included short drop brake calipers. There are a couple of shallow dents along the top tube, these have all been caused during handling, and have been photographed. I have mentioned them to be completely honest about the frame condition, but they do not effect the frame in any way. Sizing: Seattube 58cm c-t Toptube 565mm Any questions please ask!

It needs to be at least... three times bigger than this!

For sale is my Trickstuff Exzentriker bottom bracket. This includes the tool you need to install it. The condition is used, very good. Cosmetically it is in excellent condition, one bearing is good, the other okay, but both are a common size and easily replaceable at home without a press. They are the original high quality bearings so might last a few years yet, but prefer to be honest about what to expect. It's a pretty good system, the best eccentric bottom bracket I have used. Threads into a standard BSA threaded bottom bracket for use with 24mm (shimano, race face etc) axle crank set allowing you to run your bike single speed or with hub gears and no external tensioner. Set and forget, plus a clean looking bike (till you get it muddy). Selling as I no-longer single speed. Any questions and the like, please ask away. Happy to do a bundle with any other items I'm selling. Price includes P&P and I'll cover the paypal fees.

For sale is my rohloff hub built into a spank oozy trail 345 rim with an internal width of 32mm. If you want them, I also have two WTB ranger tyres, one in tough, fast and 2.8, the other light, sticky and 3.0. (an extra £20 for the tires) If you're looking you know about Rohloffs, so I'll skip the marketing! Important extras that it comes with are: a (pre-installed) conversion to a splined freehub body including a spare clip and an installed 17t cog with little wear, 160mm rotor (mounted), a 200mm V2 rotor (can be used with any standard disc brake), a IS disc mount with built in knob for rohloff torque, a faceplate for purpose built rohloff frames, the manual, shifter, some bits and bobs. The rohloff is registered to me, so can be registered to you once it's purchased. I've enjoyed having it and using it, but am in dire need of a bandsaw (ho-hum) and this is the only thing I own expensive enough to pay for one! The price is minus £50 if you dont want the rim and tyre and includes P&P and the paypal fees. P.s. If you're looking for a super clean set-up I'm also selling a trickstuff excentriker bottom bracket that turns a normal BSA threaded BB into an eccentric. It's also a high quality bottom bracket in its own right.
