New here, would love your thoughts on my new purchase (Peugeot PX10?)

Hello everyone,

Been a lurker on here for a bit but first time I've posted. I have just purchased the frame as shown in the pictures, and would appreciate some feedback. It was advertised as a Peugeot PX10, think it has had a respray in the past. What do you think?

Thanks very much!

Very classy bike and looks to be in great shape. Some peugeot experts will let you know exactly what you have but it is clearly a high end pug with the old school simplex drop outs.

It was around £80. Not sure if that is a good/ bad price for what I have here. Like the look though, and the reputation of these bikes!

Doesn't appear to have be re-sprayed. The price sounds excellent, and the frame looks like it should be a fine rider. It does fit you, yes?

Here are its stats.

Seat tube: c-t 57 / c-c 56

Top tube c-c 57
Front tube 130 mm
Dropout distance: front 100 mm / rear 126 mm



Weight: frame+fork 2900 grs

I'm 6', think it should be ok. Could it be just on the small side?

This one appears to be an un-retouched/un-resprayed disco-era PRN10E - see https://cyclespeugeot.com/images/1977_PRN10E.jpg

might want to build it up with a long stem (at least 110mm) and seatpost (8").

Might fit just fine. I'm 5' 11" with a 32" inseam. I find 58cm c-c square frames work real well for me. Your Pug would be fine for me with a 100mm stem and a hand full of seat post showing. I use the whole bar when riding, lots of time in the drops as well on the ramps. I do like to keep stretched out (so I can spend time stretched out).

Your geometry and riding style determine the suitability, of course. Go for it. Nice frame.

You will probably want to start with a 110mm stem and be prepared to change length. I am also 6', shorter legs, 32" inseam and longer torso. I have a c-c 56x56.5 and use a 120 stem.

Thank you very much for the kind words! I will definitely go for a 110mm stem, and see how I get on...

Nice score! Your overall height isn't the issue as much as your CBH. I am 5' 11"+ needing a 60 with 58 on the low end of the range. My Colnago is 58 with a Campagnolo SR post and Brooks, its at the line on the post. My other bikes are 60's and fit better.

Have fun with that one!

That picture doesn't show chrome on the rear stays, whereas @pitterss's frame has it. I'm 90% certain it is a PX10. But either way, it will be a nice rider.

Finding components that fit might be a bit of a challenge, but it will be possible. It might also be expensive.

@pitterss, please put your location in your profile. It's fun and easy.

I agree. Although, shouldn't a PX10 have a Reynolds 531 fork? Maybe @pitterss's fork is not original?

Good point Tom, I'd have said PX-10 too. Although pitterss hasn't yet included his location, if he paid in £ (Pounds Sterling), he's most likely based on my side of the Atlantic .

The fork could be made of Reynolds tubing. Reynolds makes good tubes and lousy decals. Perhaps a previous owner got annoyed at the peeling decals and ripped off their remains.

It does not appear to be a PRN10E but a PX-10....as mentioned by others (chrome rear Stays) The reynolds decals might have been removed so OP could look for remnants on fork and seat tube to confirm if they were ever there.
I agree it does not look like a respray either.
Price seems good if PX10 as the condition is nice for a bike 40 years old. If OP wants to get it back to original with correct parts it is going to push the cost up....if I were going original I would like nice looking parts for the frame build up etc.

...by far the best way to acquire the parts for one of these is finding a donor bike of poor cosmetic condition but relatively intact. A lot of years the stem, bar, derailleurs were kinda sketchy anyway, and the whole tubular wheel thing is a non starter for me personally. But tastes vary. Good luck with your bicycle cycle, they are usually a fun ride. You may know already, but on anything this old it's a good idea to do a quick check of the frame and fork alignment, and correct if too far off.

Location has been updated. It does appear that some decals have been peeled off in the past. The thickness of the steel seems similar, although I'm no sure if it is possible to check that by eye.

Tbone5 - small world!!

I'm probably going to update the bike with modern components, to try and keep costs down, although I am aware that this raises its own problems.

Thank you all for your help/advice, very much appreciated!

Here is a trick. Weigh the bare frame without fork. If all 531, it should be around 2000-2200 grams. Helpful when stickers are missing.

It's tough to go modern when you have a derailleur hanger that will only accept vintage derailleurs.
