Good luck.
Still got mine, Awsome bike.
Cracking frame.
I use 28mm tyres and no mud guards on Scottish Borders roads.
Mainly used in dry weather as it's my pride and joy.
Be interesting to see what price it goes for.

Mines been used for all types of riding from evening rides to Audax  and even been around the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, our luggage was moved on each day!
Mine has 853 tubes, not sure what the difference is. Not much difference I would say,  as its down to the skill of the builder. The tubes are fairly similar I would think.

RareGreat buy for someone.
My first Thorn and now own 3.

Hi all!
my first post as i just joined the forum.

I won the lovely pink Cyclosportif on ebay - bit of a bargain methinks. :D

I don't usually have a headtube as long (it's 20cm) - other bikes are around 17.5 or so however it should be a comfy ride.

Plan is to build up with a campagnolo 11 speed compact group I have, King headset, and I've just ordered some matt black mark 3 audax forks and some 45mm pdw mudguards.

maybe I should start a thread.?
cheers

JJ

Absolute giveaway at that price, maybe the colour put some people off. I think you'd pay at least four times that to get Kevin Sayles to build you something similar.

yeah it's a looker right enough. shimano is the way to go way better than campag imho.
the 105 is pure class the Tiagra is not far behind it.
i have custom wheels on mine with conti gatorskins hardshell tyres best ever 700x28 i did have 25 but  find he 28 that bit more comfy i ain't going anywhere fast. ;)

anto.
