Ellen's bike for sale

 That's right-long time team member and multiple national medalist Ellen Sherrill is hanging up her cleats . This geared CX bike was what she rode in four nationals and countless regional races with hardly any times off the podium. Most of the parts have been replaced with newer gear. I built a set of wheels with Mavic open-pro CD rims and Shimano 6800 Ultegra hubs. I also treated the bike to a new King headset, Shimano BB, cassette, chain, brake pads, cables, bar tape-almost everything. The bike has an Easton EC-90 CX fork, EC-70 carbon bars and a Fizik Aliante saddle. All the money from this bike sale will go to the team. Asking price is $ 1,700.00 , less than half of what the bike would go for new and much of the components are new. The seat tube is 50 CM c/t/c/ and the top tube is 54 cm.

Big tire disc road frame and fork for Waco, Tx.

 This is an unusual platform having a number of features that I have not combined on one frame.....that is until now. there's a lot going on- Paragon 'Poly-drops' with a chainstay mounted disc caliper, the seat mast , a tapered head tube that can also accomodate the straight steerer steel fork with the proper adaptor. This frame also has a PF-30 BB shell.
 With the design of this frame there are no cables on the top tube , much like my first MTB frames from the mid-'80's that had chainstay mounted roller cam brakes. The bike will see some pretty bad Texas roads so it will be able to run a pretty large tire, maybe up to a 32 although the owner was pretty sure that he would max out at a 28. I like to give people a bit more flexability some times. The chain stays are still fairly short-this is still really a road machine and not a CX platform.
One more feature is thru-axles front and rear-getting to be popular on many bikes now.
