Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Free frame in melbourne...

I have an old Peugeot UO-8 that I now longer want. It has a TA Cyclotourist (or similar) crankset, with chainrings 54t-64t. Roughly. It's a big bike, I'm around 6 ft and it doesn't fit me, so it would be suited for a TALL rider.

Sometime next week, probably around wednesday Im going to lock the frame up somewhere on swanston st, probably on the first block as you head away from flinders towards all the fast food shops.

It will be locked with a single lock, the code is 6245

Whoever wants it can take it because I don't need it. I bought it a while ago on ebay for bits and pieces, the frame doesn't fit me so I don't need it.

But please, only take it if you need it. I'd rather it be put to good use than someone just taking it because they can and leaving it to collect dust in their shed. And please dont take it if you only have plans of selling it. If you only need the crankset or frame, take it and lock the bike back up with the same lock so someone else can take it.

Here is some pictures... (not included is the wheel, chain, fork, handlebars, stem, seatpost, seat, headset etc, beacuse they're all being used on another build. It is just the frame and crankset.)






Thank you,

- Paul

I would take it just for the crankset with the 64t chainring.

that looks like a nice Stronglight 49D crankset with TA rings..
i would love to take it off your hands but i don't live anywhere near you
also, it requires the special stronglight 23.35mm extractor tool

in my little world I hope somebody just wants the frame and locks the cranks back up, because I would pretty much pee myself if I was walking down the street and there was just a crankset with a 64/54 setup locked to a rack.

Yea it would be a lot of trouble to send them off to you. Sorry.

Quick bump.

Also, I might be locking this up tomorrow. Maybe.
