Update: These have both sold.
Hey! Do you like cross bikes?? Do you like buying cross bikes? Are you 5'7" to 5'11"? You are?? Well then I've got a deal for you!
Bike #1 is a 2008 Ridley X-Fire. This was raced by me during the 2008 cross season and placed 4th in the Verge 2/3 Men's series (damn you, Jeremy Dunn!). Last year it was my pit bike and saw limited use. The specs:
54" carbon frame & fork (geometry available at Ridley)
SRAM Rival gruppo, except for --
SRAM Red rear shifter (bling!!)
FSA Gossamer compact cranks (38x46)
Cane Creek SCX-5 Brakes
Bontrager Select Aluminum Bars
Ritchey Comp Aluminum Seatpost
FSA 100mm Stem
Ksyrium SL SSC Clincher Wheelset (2005, new rims 2009)
Up next is a legendary New England cyclocross machine -- a 2003 Giant TCX previously owned by the one and only PVB. He raced it for an unknown number of years before selling it to Linnea in 2007. She raced 2 seasons of UCI Women on it. This bike is BATTLE HARDENED. It will last longer in the cross scene than you will.
Best of all it has front & rear disc tabs, so if you want to pick up a cheap disc cx bike to mess with now that UCI has gone crazy, this is your chance.
54" compact aluminium frame w/carbon fork
9-spd Ultegra shifters
FSA Carbon crank, 130CD, 42 single ring w/chainguard
Froglegs front brakes
Generic canti rear brakes
No wheels (wheel in picture for demonstration purposes only!)
Both of these bikes can be test ridden/purchased from Somerville, MA or at a random selection of MTB/Road/CX races in New England. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with inquiries.
