Pompino for sale 58cm,
clean by D0NK, on Flickr
More pics here. I bought it in september 2008 but most of the moving parts are a lot newer. It's a 58cm, I'm 6'2" and fits me fine and it's been a
dependable commuter, I'm only flogging it now coz I've got a cx bike for commuting duties so this has been sat in the cupboard unused for 4 months.
Bar, stem, headset, crank and chainring are original planet X stuff, levers are tektro, brakes are tektro mini Vs as I just wasn't getting on with the cantis, I do still have them if you want to give them a go. Cartridge blocks and plenty of pad left, also have atleast one set of pads to go with the bike. Saddle and post were robbed 2 years back so I got another planet X coz they are comfy and a ritchey post. Last May I replaced bar tape, cables, BB (shimano) and wheels, these are Omega flip flop hubbed wheels cheapish but they spin fine and are true, some noticeable wear on the rear braking surface but there should be a decent bit of life in it yet, front looks only slightly worn. The freewheel is a shimano transferred from my new CX bike so has only done a couple of hundred miles the chain is maybe 500 miles old can't remember tbh, not ancient anyway. I also have a fixed cog if you want to give that a try, I had a few goes at it but just didn't feel comfortable. Gearing is 48x18 which I thought was too spinny on my first ride but after several years riding it I reckon it is bang on for none vertiginous road. Front mudguard is quite battered but functionally ok, rear guard one of the guard mountings is broken, I've got a ducktape fix that has held for a couple of hundred miles and seems OK, see pics. Pedals are shimano 520s recently re-greased, spin ok. Tyres are 23c schwalbe durano which are proving to be pretty puncture proof, both about 6months old and hardly any wear. I removed the guards at weekend just to check all mountings were ok (they are), bit of wear on the seat tube where the guard has rubbed, I also found a brand new front mudguard, as yet unfitted. Plenty of spacer on the fork so lanky(er) riders have room for fit or you can slam it if you so wish.
