Big tire CX bike for a local

 Big tire CX bikes might be popular right now but this model is one I have been building since 1992. There have been some changes over the years such as more bends in the stays, tapered head tube but for the most part , the team tig SL has stayed the same.
 The customer came up with the idea to use the team color in the panels. I like the look and would not have thought of it. The parts are Shimano so it is set up with a Tanpan adaptor to make the XT rear der. work with the R-685 shifters. This allows for a wide gear spread- 11-42 with a single ring up front. The left shifter is not connected but the bike does have the cable guides to run a front der. if needed.

Team bike for sale

This is a new frame ,fork and headset with a mix of slightly used demo parts and some new stuff. The top tube is 570 and the seat tube is 568 c/t/c so it fits a 6'1" rider really well. It has Zipp alloy wheels, Sram CX-1 force cranks and der. with Red-22 levers and hydraulic brakes. You can ride away on this bike for $ 3,000. I seldom have extra bikes like this so it's a rare opportunity to get one fast and cheap. Email me at paul@rocklobstercycles.com if you are interested.

Want my bike ?

 Yes, I'm selling one of my recent road bikes. I had fun on it for two years but I have about 5-6 road bikes and need the room in my shop. The top tube is 565 mm and the saddle top to BB is about 725 mm with a bit of up and down adjustment with the seat mast topper. It's a really nimble and light bike being made of Dedaccai 7.9 tubing. A frame like this new is $ 1,650. I'm asking $ 1,700 for the whole bike. Without pedals it weighs 16.9 lbs. and has mostly 105 5800 with 6800 wheels and a dura ace fr. der. It has some new Enve bars 44 cm. It's a lot of fun to ride. email me at paul@rocklobstercycles.com if you are interested.
