Now that the tour is over it's time to start thinking about more important matters, namely that the start of cyclocross season is only 4-6 weeks away!
On this forum I don't think this bike needs an introduction, but here's my take. This is a no-holds-barred cyclocross RACING machine. It is beautiful in its simplicity and raw functionality. It is light, stiff, and has a traditional tall CX geometry.
I bought this frame with the intention of racing it and enjoying it for years to come. However, after getting professionally fit this spring, I've discovered to my dismay that this frame is incompatible with my new position. So, it is up for sale. This is a bike I had never intended to sell. This bike has delivered me to every step of the podium in dry fast courses and muddy sloppers.
On to specifics. Pictures are here:
The frame is a 54.5. Geo chart is in the Flickr album. Currently installed is a Edge/Enve CX fork, Chris King headset, Deda Zero100 seatpost (dark metallic finish complimentary to the raw AL frame), Sram Force standard 172.5mm crankset & BB, and Bontrager 110 stem. BB bearings are a little rough, could probably stand to be replaced.
Looking for $700 shipped and paypal'd for everything shown, or $600 shipped and paypal'd for the frame/fork/headset in the CONUS. Also have some various bars/stems/saddles lying around, so if you're interested in more parts for the build, just ask!
I bought this frame before the 2013 'cross season. It was advertised as lightly used, but I couldn't find any signs of wear and tear when I got it. I used it for 1 season of 'cross. No dents or dings that I've noticed, but there are some signs of wear on the chainstay protector, location where the FD clamp was installed is visible, and there is some cable rub visible on the top tube/head tube. I've tried to document these in the photos. None of this takes away from the utility or beauty of the bike when built up, IMO. I've had people on new carbon CX bikes compliment me on this bike.
Thanks, and get at me with questions.
Bump for August! Clock is ticking...
Price drop - knocking $50 off both asking prices.
Sorry this bike has sold...
