Item specifics

Condition:

Used

Brand:

igleheart

Model:

aEther

This is an absolutely beautiful track bike frame from legendary Boston frame maker Christopher Igleheart.  Called the 'aEther', it has true track geometry for quick, responsive handling, power transfer, stiffness, and speed.  It has the famous lime green color that the aEther is known for.  Hand made of the finest steel tubing, in a simple, lugless design; the craftsmanship is outstanding.
The brand new retail price for the frame alone is $1750.
 
NO RESERVE
 
Also included is a lugged steel fork made by Silgey in pearl white. The two look nice together.  

To complete the set, you will also receive a top of the line Hatta 9400 bottom bracket (the best track BB made), as well as a Salsa gold metallic seat post clamp, and a small bottle of paint for the frame.

The frame measures 54cm C-C / and 56cm C-T.

In NEAR MINT condition!  Very few signs of use, which you have to squint to see; this beauty has been kept indoors in air conditioning and was purchased brand new two years ago. NEVER crashed or damaged, and hardly riden at all (I'm not kidding - this bike hung on a wall for most of it's short life and was very rarely ridden, which explains it's condition) - I find myself riding my Dutch city bike everywhere.

The bottom bracket is in brand new condition, because it was installed just before the bike was taken out of service, as well as the seat post clamp.

The FORK shows a few small areas of rust spots ON THE PAINT (not on the shell under the surface).  It can be removed with cleaning agents.  The fork is very nice, but not in the same league with the Igleheart frame.  Its the FRAME that is the GEM here.

The built up fixed gear bike pictured is shown for informational purposes only, and the parts pictured on it are not included; only a different seat post clamp, fork, and bottom bracket, which are described, are included

Build the fixie or single speed of your dreams!  I am 5'10" tall and this frame fit me very well.  Some people like track frames to be smaller than normal, others not.  Don't forget that track bikes have a higher standover height because the bottom bracket is higher off the ground compared to a road bike.

If you would like any more information, measurements, or pictures, please contact me.

Thanks for looking, and enjoy!

Here's some clarified information that I thought would be helpful. The seat tube measures 54 cm from the center of the bottom bracket to where the seat tube and top tube meet (c-c). It measures 56 cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the TOP of the seat tube where that tube ends, and the seat post would be inserted (c-t). The top tube measures 55 cm c-c (the centers of the head tube and the seat tube. The bottom bracket is a Hatta R9400. It works with NJS cranks such as the Sugino 75, Grand Mighty, Suntour Superbe Pro and shimano Dura Ace SQUARE TAPER MODELS. 109mm, English thread, and ISO taper. NJS approved. Thanks.
