55cm Novara Randonee Touring Frame For Sale

Frame/fork have been sold!

Anna wants to sell her 55cm Novara Randonee touring frame/fork. This steel frame was bought new in 2006 and used for one season. I gave her a Surly LHT frame which she swapped all the parts over to. The Randonee frame has been in storage ever since. This is a great frame for a 700c touring bike and is quite attractive. With long chainstays and relaxed geometry there is lots of room for panniers and the stable handling inspires confidence. It's in excellent shape mechanically with some minor cosmetic blemishes as would be expected from a bike that has been on tour and seen some commuting action. This frame was ridden for one riding season covering about 1500kms.

She would like $150 for the frame/fork + $75 shipping [if shipping is less than this the difference will be refunded].

If you have some parts laying around this would make a wonderful inexpensive touring rig or a fine commuter bike.

I'll take it depending on shipping costs.

I'd need your address to provide shipping costs.

Is this bike still available?

Vik said...

Hi Lya,

This is a frame/fork only - not a complete bike and yes it's still for sale.

cheers,

Vik

Vik,

Sorry it took me so long to respond. This may sound like a random question but how tall is Anna?

Vik said...

She is about 5'6".

Lya said...

Hmmm...interesting, do you have the exact measurements for the standover and top tube. I currently own a Randonee...that we think is a 52cm, but the downtube is bent so it would be great to get another frame I could transfer the parts to. Thanks for answering all my questions vik.

I know this is a few months after the original post, however, I was wondering if the frame is still available?

Vik said...

Nope....that's why the post is marked as sold..sorry.
