I’m proud to present this beautiful 53cm Dave Hinde road bike for sale in excellent condition and dripping with Italian components. At just 8.5kg you’re looking at a new bike costing over £800 to match this little whippet in terms of weight – however said new bike is unlikely to have this level of quality specification. This includes the triple-butted Columbus Zonal aluminium frame, full carbon ITM fork, Cane Creek S2 headset and Vuelta XRP wheels (both of which utilise durable cartridge bearings), 3T handlebars/stem, Ambrosio seatpost, Fizik saddle and – most importantly in a market awash with Shimano – a full Campagnolo groupset.

You’re likely to be around 5’7” to 5’11” (depending on your body type) and looking for a good quality all-round sportive/training/club bike in excellent condition on a reasonably modest budget – and here it is. Having been completely stripped and lovingly rebuilt, every part is now clean, lubed & adjusted and the few chips to the metallic paintwork have been touched up. The bike’s in perfect working order with shed-loads of life left in the components and is ready to ride/race – it accelerates like a rocket and shifts, stops and steers beautifully.

Upgrades/new parts fitted include the skinwall Schwalbe 25mm tyres, chain, pads, bar tape and various fittings. As ever I’m happy to tweak the bike to your requirements; the new cables have been cut long enough to allow the stem to be flipped for riders who might prefer a slightly higher handlebar position. Extra chain links are supplied should you prefer a larger rear cassette, which I can supply. It’s a gents bike but I can also provide a women-specific saddle for prospective female riders. No pedals included, but this can be discussed as I have lots to choose from.
