Posting this for Seth Howard:
I’m selling my 2004 Redline Conquest Disc-R frame (aluminum, disc only) with the original fork, a Kona Project 2 disc cross fork, and a set of disc-ready wheels. The top tube is 56cm c-to-c. Here’s a pic of the current build. As you can see it’s on the small side for me which is why it’s being replaced.
The frame is spaced 130mm in the back, which is honestly kind of pain for finding disc compatible hubs/wheels, but I’m including wheels as well. The rear is the stock wheel from a Specialized hybrid (Sirrus?) which is 130 spaced and 6 bolt disc rotor compatible. The front is a Joytech hub to a WTB 29er rim (decals removed). Both are black spokes/black hubs/black rims so they are a pretty close match cosmetically. It will also come with the original Redline fork (alloy), but it was cut very short by the original owner. It *may* work with a low stack headset and a slammed stem if that’s your thing, or sell it, put it on another bike, etc…
I have this set up as a singlespeed with a tensioner and it’s been great for that. Despite the “R” being for “road” I have been able to fit some pretty big tires on it including some supposedly 40mm Specialized which I’ll admit was a tight squeeze. Typical 32-35 cross tires will work nicely. RD and rear brake cable routing and FD is on the downtube, which is a nice cross-friendly setup if you want to do gears.
Full disclosure department: I managed to bonk the Kona fork in practice in an encounter with a log that was serving as my practice “barrier” when I didn’t unclip in time (I got off and made it over the barrier but the bike didn’t). I took it to Elliott Bay Bicycles who re-aligned the fork/fixed the rake problem. The frame was inspected and no damage found. The BB threads were also a little rough when I was building it up and were chased by Charles at Wright Bros. For some reason he likes to use purple Loctite on BBs in alloy frames (this is the weakest version). I don’t anticipate having problems getting it out, but just FYI.
I’m asking $170 obo for Kittens. That gets you the frame w/ seat collar (takes a 27.2 post), both forks, and wheels. You’re also welcome to test ride the bike as it’s currently built (if I craigslist it I’ll break it down). If you need other parts to get your build going you’re welcome to paw through my parts bin. If you’re buying the frame/fork/wheels I’d be more than happy to throw in some other stuff for cheap or even free. I’m also open to trades. Mostly looking for Sram Rival brifters/FD/RD.
I’m not on Facebook, but you can contact me at howard (underscore) seth at hotmail dot com. I’ll be happy to bring it on the 4/3 ride if there’s any interest.
