    FS: Simoncini frameset, 62.5 cm center-to-center

    Simoncini Frameset

    $375 + shipping, net of paypal fees or as a "gift."

    Late 1980s/early 1990s,
    Columbus SLX Tubing
    Chromed Simoncini Fork with “S” on crown.
    Includes a Campagnolo binder bolt and Velo Orange headset.
    Campagnolo ends on fork and rear triangle
    Color is a pearl silver with tangerine and black accents.

    Seat tube: 62.5 cm center-to-center, (63.5 cm to top)
    Top tube: 59 cm center-to-center
    Head tube: 20 cm bottom-to-top
    Chain stays: roughly 39 cm
    Italian bottom bracket
    1 inch threaded headset
    Standard 22.2mm stem
    Front spacing: 100 mm (I measure 102)
    Rear spacing: 130 mm (I measure 129)
    Takes a 27.2mm seatpost
    Takes recessed brakes.
    Braze-ons: 2 bottle cage on down tube, shifter braze-ons, nice external bottom bracket routing, internal top tube cable routing, chain peg on inside of drive side seat stay, chain stay stop for the rear derailleur, pump peg, and front derailleur braze-on.
    Other: Drain holes in bottom bracket. Simoncini cast bottom bracket with “fins.”

    Overall, it’s an extremely pretty frame. It was repainted about six years ago by D&D cycles in the Bay Area, which is the same shop that Rivendell uses for custom paint. It sat in storage for much of the time since being repainted. The head tube, bottom bracket, and brake bridge are stamped or cast with the Simoncini logo. The brazing on the caps on the tubing at the rear dropouts is impeccable. It’s a tight Italian racing frame. It’s beautiful and will make someone very happy.

    Max tire size with 700c wheels: 25mm fit. It could go up about a mm. 28mm tires on 700c wheels are too big, but just barely. You could potentially run Cerfs or something between 25 and 28mm, but I haven’t tried. The 650B conversion numbers: fork clearance @320 mm from axle is 31 mm, rear chainstay clearance @320 mm from the axle is 37mm.

    There are very small flecks on the chromed stays from use. The worst is where there was chain slap, but even this is minor. There is a little chain rub around the bottom bracket that has been touched up, but the paint and chrome are excellent otherwise.

    Feel free to ask questions.

    It's pronounced, "Co-burn."
