Frame: 52cm Anchor (Bridgestone) RNC7 Equipe. Steel. A bit tatty and has a few dents here and there, but is very light for steel and is very comfortable. It has been used on a few centuries when the bike was run as a fully geared bike.Seat post: Campagnolo aero 27.2. These cost a small fortune these days on eBay!Chainset: vintage Shimano 7400 series Dura-Ace double (but being run as a single speed with Thorn 46T ring)Rear hub: White Industries eccentric ENO flip flop hub (can run fixed/SS without fixed dropouts or chain tensioner). This hub lets you run a bike with vertical dropouts as a fixed gear without finding a 'magic gear'. A great bit of kit which costs over £100 new!

Almost new.Pedals: MKS GR-8Saddle: note - the Brooks shown in the photos will not be included, but I can include a vintage black Selle Italia 1990 Flite saddle, on request.Anchor is one of the most famous Japanese frame manufacturers, and the company was once known as Bridgestone (the same company that makes NJS Keirin frames). The frame was made in japan and is one of the early models of RNC7. I bought it used from the original owner and it is probably from the mid-90s. They still make the frame now - see link to current site: http://www.anchor-bikes.com/bikes/rnc7eq.htmlThe frame is a bit tatty - it has some small dents and scratches, but it rides fine and could be considered a bit of a sleeper bike that you wouldn't mind locking up in town. All the parts run smoothly and the bike runs great - it just doesn't get enough use and I want to make some space. It is currently set up fixed but you can buy a freewheel, turn the rear hub around and run the bike single speed.Feel free to ask any questions.Collection only, in south-east London.
