two complete used bikes for sale.

 I'm selling both of these bikes for an old customer- he's got quite a fleet and needs to shrink the inventory. This bike is a 650 MTN in aluminum. It is mostly XTR with some XT,  carbon Easton bars and seat post, King headset and Stan's rims. The wheels are QR as this bike predates the thru-axle era by just a bit. The bike was built for a 5'7" rider and is very light. Asking price is $ 3,000 but I'm told that a reasonable offer would be OK.

 This road bike was originally built for my sister. It has some US Easton tubing, some of it is Scandium. The equipment is Campagnolo 11 spd. a mixture of record and Chorus. The Mavic Ksyrium SL wheels have recently been completely rebuilt. The bike is in spotless condition and has a Kestrel carbon fork. The asking price is $ 3,000. Both of these bike have been very well maintained and have been completely gone through before putting them up for sale. If you are interested just give me a call at the shop at 831-429-8010 or email me at

650 Boost MTB frame in 7005

 This is a stout frame made for fairly rough trail riding. The bike will most likely run 2.4 tires, not that big but fairly large for cross country use.

Team CX 7005 frame for local

In case you  were wondering what shape the latest team frame would take, here it is. As of this year of 2019 I think I have a winning combo of new features. Yes, I have built others like this earlier but only a few so far- probably only 4-5 at this time.

The top tube has been ovalized in two planes with one section being flattened for more comfort when shouldering. I'm pretty late in the game adding this feature but I had to find suitable tubes before I could pull it off. it will now be a standard feature on the race frames.
Another feature is actually the absence of an old one- the seat stay bridge is gone- at the top of the seat stays there is a small plate gussett to strengthen the area where the stays meet the seat tube. More stress is put on this area with the removal of the bridge so this plate at the top of the stays disperses that stress and adds a little stiffness to the rear triangle. Finally , the flat mount brake with internal down tube routing is something I have been switching to in the last 6 months . The result is the sleekest version of the team frame yet.

Team 7005 CX frame

 This one is going to a team member in the bay area. It is set up for Di II and has all the new features-flattened top tube, internal rear brake rout, bridgeless seat stays and flat mount rear caliper.
 For the next season or two this is what my CX race frames will look like.
