Bike Sale!

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)
No pedals
Price: $1250


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.

Specs:
54" compact aluminium frame w/carbon fork
9-spd Ultegra shifters
Ultegra RD
FSA Carbon crank, 130CD, 42 single ring w/chainguard
Froglegs front brakes
Generic canti rear brakes
No pedals
No wheels (wheel in picture for demonstration purposes only!)
Price: $400


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 colin.reuter@gmail.com with inquiries.

I can attest to the Giant's battle worthiness. I battled it. I survived, but it put me in the pain cave.

Is that Giant still available?

Sorry Russ, it's gone!

How about the x-fire?

Colin R 8/02/2010 7:11 PM  

They're both gone! I edited the post to reflect that, sorry!

No prob, hope they both found good homes!
