Keeping/off market - Mature Spectrum Ti Super XL

Off Market, thanks for lookin....

>Not positive I am ready to do this, so partial feeler.

1997 Extra Light. 1" head tube, IN VGC. BTW, those are 28mm tires on there, on wide rims. Unlike a lot of bikes from that era that barely might fit a 25 if it is a real 25 and not a fattie.

It is built, but picture for illustration purposes. Picture is from Oct 2019, been ridden 5-6 times since.

THE 80 Aniversary SR is going else-where, NOT for sale. Bars/stems/wheels/saddle NOT FOR SALE.

So JUST frame and some extras[listed here-in] I may eBay or optionally for more coin sell with the frame.

I have the orig build sheet, but it is a 60CM basically. I am the second person bestowed with it, having gotten from orig owner. One of many in his and my stables, so very low use since new for it's age.

Frame as is with my DIY panels [lettering ready to be replaced, panels and WC stripe solid, all vinyl]. $1250.00

Wound-up Orig threaded 1" fork, included for full price.

Also have a red Time Stiletto 1" threadless steel steere carbon fork if a buyer has desire to go that route, VGC. With fair King 1" threadless 150.00 with frame only.

Extra compete waterslide decal set 'IN COLOR' Rare since they had to stop the WC colors in the kits years ago. $175.00 prolly going on eBay.

Original build Spectrum 12CM Quill black 25.4 bar positive rise handmade Spectrum Stem. $150.00 [too high bar position for me]. Nice color Spectrum Logo on it. Prolly eBay, if interested in seeing it, I can add a picture if asked.

Trade wise looking for some carbon disc wheels, preferably with end caps to go both ways included. I am 198 lb., so stupid light [not meant disparagingly] low spoke wheels no an option.

This is great! It's amazing how my eye has evolved to thinking a 1" steerer looks skinny. I thought 44mm head tubes were hideous when they came out. Now they look normal to me and this looks skinny. Still, this is waaaay more elegant. GLWS.

Yes. in that pic. It is actually currently sporting the mentioned Stiletto and king thread-less setup. Stack was too high for me with the setup in the pic, which is initial upgrade build with the SR 80th ani groupo.

I have no issue with the 1", but I would not run a carbon steerer either at my size and that long a steerer.

If I wind up keeping it, I may buy a new woundup steel 1" threadless for it. Still make them... I like bikes that turn just from when you think about it.


But yes, 1" looks thin. In this case a big frame and longer HT, no to mention some pretty fat DT and TT comparatively...

It is plenty stiff this frame is all I can say.
