Moonpies For Misfits

We aren't normally in the habit of advertising bikes on here, but I'm making a special exception as both of the owners of these bikes are decent geezers and I think the bikes are worth looking at.

What's a deal to one person is "tell 'im he's dreaming" to another... but I'm sure each of these guys would be happy to have a discussion about the bike's pricing.

Do you like steel, interested in cyclocross?

This is the real deal and Stu has done a great job with the build. A proper race frame in a tough material with some excellent quality old-school components. Run it SS or with the current groupset.

The next is a great beginner cross bike/comuuter-cross.

It's got the following build:
Brown Surly cross check (56tt, 54 st)
Frame is is good condition, with the expected scratches that a cross bike would receive. No dents or dings.

It has a mix of Campag veloce and centaur ten speed. 
The rear mech. is mirage so its cheap to replace. 
Cranks are compact Centaur Ultra Torque, 34/50.

Wheels are true and both hubs are sealed. Rear is a DT Swiss rim laced to a 340 hub. Front is a Ritchey.

Brakes are avid shorty six's which he has been very happy with. Work great with no squeal.

Cluster, chain, rear mech and shifters are near new and have less than 500km on them.

More photos can be found here and the owner can be contacted via this site (or flickr). He is looking for ~$1000.

With the first Dirty Deeds fast approaching and time running out to order all those parts/find a frame/etc here are some bikes that have been built up well and with care.
