For Sale: My beloved Singular Swift. Last October I had an accident which resulted in a nasty knee injury. While I’m able to ride again, I’ve decided that riding my rigid Swift probably won’t be great for my long term cycling prospects no matter how much I love it, so I’ve decided to move it on and use the cash I get from it to upgrade my other (suspended and geared) bike.

It’s a mark 1 Swift in size medium. I’m 5’11” and run it with a 100mm stem for an old school feeling ride. The paint work has a few chips in it, but there are no dents in the frame. I’ve always used a torque wrench to set the bottom bracket up so as a result the BB shell is perfectly round. The frame will come with a relatively new XT MT800 bottom bracket (feels smooth), a Cane Creek S3 headset, Hope seat clamp, Easton EA70 seatpost, a Truvative T30 steam, and a 32 x 20 singlespeed chainring and sprocket, chain and singlespeed hub conversion shims.

Available for inspection/collection in the Ramsbottom area.

Any questions, please send them through.

    Hi Voodoochris,

    Just a few questions if you don’t mind.

    1. Has the EBB been recently removed to check it’s not corroded to the steel.

    2. Is the rust on the brake stay surface of more deeply corroded?

    3. Will you take an offer?

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    I can’t remember when I had the EBB out and re-greased last, but it will probably have been when I swapped the BB over around the end of August. The EBB moves when the pinch bolts are slackened off so it’s not siezed. The rust on the stay is just a bit of surface rust around the weld hole. I’ve had a prod with the end of a thin allen key and it’s structurally sound. As for offers, it depends on whether you need it posting or are thinking of coming to pick it up. Probably not if you need it posting as there’s a lot of faff sourcing a bike box, packaging it up, and postage is usually £15 – £20 Royal Mail. If you’re coming to pick it up, then we could do a deal. DM me to discuss further.
