Up for grabs is a one of a kind, semi-custom single speed cyclocross bike. I used this for about 9 races, but have since picked up a new CXSS. So as much as I love this bike, it's got to go!

It is a 56 in traditional road sizing. Orange and green, with custom matching decals. Open the blog links below for pics, and the story behind it...

Name the bike le bastard - A result of the Super le Tour frame I used, and the fact that I bastardized a road bike to turn it into a CX bike the way CX bikes use to be built long ago. Had canti mounts added to the frame, and moved the cable stops to the top of the top tube for shouldering. This bike is awesome!

Asking $720 firm. Shipping included. Accept paypal or personal check. Will ship or deliver when payment clears.

Build is as follows.

1978 Schwinn Super Le Tour 12.2 frame (sand blasted and powdercoated)
Rithcey Pro DS Wheelset
Michelin "green" Sprints
FSA Gossamer Crankset with Surly 38 tooth SS ring
16 tooth BMX freewheel cog
SRAM 8 speed chain
Nashbar carbon cyclocross fork with 1 in steer tube
Specialized Comp drop bars
Cinelli Green bar tape
Shimano Super SLR brake levers
Tekro Oryx Canti Brakes
Ritchey Comp Stem (110x31.8 )
Cane Creek C2 1 in. Head set
Tekro long drop front cable hanger
Tekro bolt mounted rear cable hanger
Sella Italia SLR Saddle
Rock Werks seat post (Thomson knock off)
Rock Werks BMX frame chain tensioners (Had to modify the rear drop out and tensioners to work on bike. But this was a good move. Can adjust chain a lot better and makes the ride more reliable.)
