Metabike with twin 700C wheels and aluminium frame for sale. Purchased Aug 2013 as the best high racer which could be used for UK and overseas touring. With the possible exception of the Schlitter Encore it probably still is. Can be fitted into a standard bike bag! The stiff frame makes it an excellent climber. I have added rubber spacers to the seat mounts which gives it a nice ride despite the stiff frame. The best of all worlds?
  • Open cockpit bars (could be replaced with a tiller if desired)

  • Carbon front fork (would take a versatile range of wheel widths, I run with 32 mm tyres)

  • Dura Ace bar end shifters linked to 27 speed Deore LX gears

  • Avid BB7 mechanical disk brakes front and rear.

  • 700 C wheels with Schwalbe Marathon tyres.

  • Ventisit pad

  • White frame. Paintwork in generally very good condition with just one big scratch on the main tube below the seat (where the skewer of one of the wheels scratched it in transit to an international tour.)

  • ca. 5000 miles

For collection from BB7, Lancashire. £1350 ono.

Lots of pictures to be found at:
