Clem H - 52cm Frameset - Mustard Blem

Product Details

Get a deal on a Clem H frameset (two are up for grabs). These framesets began their life as "completes," but then were stripped. Blemishes included marked kickstand plate and rear drop outs and minor matteing of paint where front derailer would clamp (see last 3 photos for describe)— none structural and all covered when the bike is built back up. Shows chipped paint, but touch-up would be easy.
Includes seatpost, bottom bracket, and headset.
The Clems are our less expensive but no less functional models. They ride the same as our most expensive frames, but we've brought the cost down by
  • Tig welding most of the joints
  • Having the completes assembled where they're made, in Taiwan

Most of the joints are tig welded but we've included the lugs that are most important to us. Clem H's have, on the 52 and 59cm respectively, our ball-n-socket seatlug, or our tough socket'ed lug. Both have our RC-05 wide flat-shouldered crown that's also used on our Hunqapillar and allows tires up to a 2.4 easily. The decals are understated and show up well against the paint. See Clem coming out of the sewer?

The Clems are billed as super-commuters, but they can easily be built up as rigid mountain bikes or racked-up camping bikes.

These bikes are going to be around and in use in 40 years and they'll still be great bikes then. There's nothing weird about them and they'll require very little service beyond changing brake pads and chain-rings when they eventually wear. If you're enterprising enough, what service they will need is easily learned with some inexpensive tools and a couple Youtube videos. If not, they'll be a breath of fresh air for your LBS's mechanic. Nothing is hidden in blackboxes and there's nothing electronic. That's a good thing.
