    How have you got the campag ethos to work with the xtr mech?

    I have decided to sell my Lynskey Backroad (2011 model). This is a very fine bike, but I just can’t get along with the geometry. I rode 2000 miles in three weeks on it last summer – riding fully loaded with camping equipment from London to central Italy, through S France and into N Spain – and it’s fast and stable.

    The frame is a 54cm top tube and 56cm c-c seat tube (virtual horizontal top tube). It’s essentially quite a tall, short reach bike. The problem I have is that I have relatively short legs and a long upper body so it’s all a bit wrong for me. I also like the bars pretty low even when touring. If you look at the picture of my Spooky road bike you’ll see what I mean. With the tall head tube on the Lynskey I just can’t get the bars low enough even with the 17 degree drop on the stem I have.

    So, the upshot is that I want to sell the frame and fork, or the complete bike, and get one that fits me properly.

    The frame (with Vicious touring fork) retails for about £1800 now. I would like to sell the frame and Vicious fork for £650.

    If anyone is interested in the complete bike then I reckon I’d be after about £1400. The build is a mix of Shimano XTR, XT, MIddleburn, Thomson, Stans, FSA, Hope and Campag at the moment. I would be happy to build up with 10 speed Dura Ace STIs if preferred. The sale does not include the Tubus titanium rack.

    The bike is in excellent condition – everything is well looked after. There are no dents or scratches on the frame.

    I would prefer collection but I am happy to package it up if someone wanted to arrange collection via a courier from N Wales[img]http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/download/file.php?id=225962[/img].

    Any questions please ask.

    Thanks

    That’s easy – 9 speed shimano works fine with 10 speed campag ergos. You just have to slightly adjust the way the gear cable is clamped in the rear mech. Google it – there’s a mass of stuff. Never missed a beat in 4000 miles of riding.
