Thorn Nomad For Sale - Yes, you read that right.
« on: May 01, 2010, 12:11:28 am »
900 plus $50 for packing and plus actual shipping charges to a lower US destination. Shady people need not apply.

Virtual Top Tube Measurement:  57CM

From my experience, the VTT measurement is the most important bit of data on a bike's size and in fact the only thing I really need to determine if the bike fits within my ideal size range.  For example: for my size, proportions and references, I know that I can probably tour comfortably on bikes with a VTT between 56cm - 58cm.  Yes, I could tour on bikes measuring outside of that range but not ideally.  Nope, I cannot help to determine what your VTT range is.

For those interested in stand over height for one reason or another:
Measured from firm ground, through the center of the BB to the top of the top tube, directly above the BB:  29"

Fully functioning iconic bike that I shouldn't be selling. The original legendary 26" wheeled expedition touring bike that can carry it all, while doing it all.

I'm selling a total of 3 or 4 bikes so this is a major realignment. Yeah, I'll regret this but such is life.

She's the second bike shown on this page:

Bike as shown but...

No Brooks (can include another saddle however)
No Racks
No Cages
No Computer
No Lights
No Bell
No Pedals
No Stand
No Panniers
No Garden

Supplied with low mileage 36 spoke wheels with Deore hubs and Mavic rims, wearing Conti Travel Contact touring tires.

Nice. Respected. Not a show piece. This is for the person who wants to really tour, and on a quality hand-built bike (built in the UK of Reynolds 531 tubing) that doesn't scream STEAL ME.

A rare opportunity and a good deal for a quick sale. $900 firm.
