Staying with the International theme, today’s entry is an OTSG First 1984 Claud Butler Dalesman sent in by Andy E. in Reading UK. That’s a BIG frame!
From Andy E
This is a 1984 Claud Butler Dalesman with a large 25.5in frame made from Reynolds 531 ST. It’s been updated with a mix of vintage and new parts. The rear derailleur is once again a Suntour Cyclone MkII and Suntour Cyclone pedals have been fitted as well. The saddle is now a Brooks Team Pro and there are new 700c wheels made with Suntour Superbe Pro hubs, Mavic Open Pro rims and DT Swiss spokes rather than the original 27in wheels. The brakes have also been changed to Tektro using aero brake levers.
