[SOLD] FS: Kellogg - Spectrum Steel Road - 62c-c x 56c-c [Price Reduced]

[SOLD] Kellog Spectrum Road: $900 pickup/drop-off

I'm gonna try to clear a few hooks and made some space, spin off a couple/few steeds that don't get out much. Between me not having any bike boxes, and all my local LBS having a very hard time getting any new bikes, so no free boxes readily available, I'm starting out saying no shipping right now. I'll drive 50mi from NE Jersey, 07642, north, west or south, to meetup and drop off. It that doesn't work, I'll look at shipping, but won't make any promises until I can score some boxes.

This is a Spectrum road frame of indeterminate age, tallish with a shortish top tube. Some of the frame details, mainly the top-of-bb cable guides and older Spectrum decal, say mid-'80s to me, but I don't see a ser# on the bb shell, and there's a simple "94" stamped on the steerer tube. 94th frame built? Can't imagine it was spec'd this way in '94, especially with the older decals.

Has all the Kellogg/Spectrum hallmarks: clean lugs, lovely scalloped seat stay plugs, smooth/clean top tube internal brake casing routing with internal guide tube, and beefy chain stays with minimal/precise dimples.

It is a performance road frame, tight wheelbase, upright angles, no fender/rack bosses. It rides fast and smooth, but with pretty neutral handling. Never felt like an '80s crit bike to me.

I'd call 26-27mm actual width max, pinch point is under the front brake. True 28mm tires rubbed the underside of the front brake, and were pretty darn tight both at the chainstays and under the rear brake.

No dents, dings, or scrapes deeper than primer.

Rides straight, threads are clean. My last pre-sale build was a test bed for a 38/24 double, which didn't work in the rear with the bb-top cable guides, so there's a drilled/tapped hole in the bb for an under-bb cable guide. I'll plug it with a bolt.

Pretty clean metalflake black overall, with a few scrapes, visible in the photos. Biggest ones are on the outside of the drive-side seat stay, and under the Kellogg name on the non-drive chainstay. No rust or paint bubbling; the top tube brake casing openings are clean, which isn't always the case.

Build is all the 740x Dura-Ace you can get, except for the bottom bracket. Details below.

Happy to answer questions. Some pix attached, more at flickr:

Geez that's a lot of bike for under a grand. I see mediocre 29er's and faux Porteurs listed for that. Nice.

Beautiful! Good thing it's too big for me. I have a steel spectrum from 92 that is easily in the top three of my bikes as far ask craftsmanship.

Just adding again that if this fits and you have any interest in American made steel bikes...this is one to get. Did a little finishing work on my Spectrum today. The craftsmanship is next level.

Thanks for all the bumps!

I don't know what tubing is in this one. I think Tom was pretty eclectic in tubing choice, blending tubes from different mfrs depending on geo/design/rider. I've also seen reference to him having custom tubes made just for him, which means any standard-production tube decal wouldn't necessarily match what he was actually using.

At any rate, this is the 3rd Spectrum I've had over the years, and none of them had tubing decals. Doesn't mean he didn't use them, and it's just my own random sampling, but I was 3/3 for no tubing stickers.

FWIW, 6.2lbs for a 62cm c-c frameset is on the light side. Not super-dee-duper giga-light, but purty darn light.

If you've got the serial number try emailing Spectrum/Tom Kellogg to get details. I did that with my dad's 1989 Spectrum titanium and they provided specs and date on the build and the LBS it was shipped to. Tom actually enjoyed seeing a picture of a bike and getting information on how much my dad enjoyed and rode the heck out of that bike.
