As part of our New Year clearout, we’re going to be sticking some stuff up for sale that’s been hanging around the workshop too long.
First up is a Reynolds 853 29er mountain bike frame. This was built a couple of years but was never painted. It’s a full 853 frame with Paragon slider dropouts. We can supply various inserts for these dropouts so you can run it with a derailleur, singlespeed or with a Rohloff hub.
We’ll paint it whatever (single) colour you want. If you want a fancy paint design we can do that too but it will cost extra. It was originally designed for 100-120mm travel forks. 73º seat angle with a 71.5º head angle. Effective top tube length is about 600mm, seattube length is 485mm, chainstays are 450mm. Seattube is 28.6 for a 27.2 seatpost. 1-1/8″ headtube.
The drawing is below with all relevant numbers and angles. Looking to get £700 for this which is pretty close to half price if you commissioned us to build the same thing today. We’ll ship it anywhere in the UK for that price too. Let us know asap if you’re interested as I don’t think this will be around for long.
Obviously the drawing is for dimensions only. Some pics of the frame primed and ready for paint of your choice is shown below (dropouts inserts not shown). Any questions, give us a buzz on 01506 435 400.
