GRR large frame, asking $2,500
Gold Rush Replica, large frame size.
Purhased from AngleTech Cycles in Dec. of 2003. Bike was only 2 years old at the time.
This bent has everything other than the body sock. Includes thicker Zipper fairing (tinted), with hardware to keep it off the handlebars. In fact there is enough room to put your small sleeping bag or Thermarest between the handle-bars and the Lexan fairing. A very nice feature I have used for touring.
Transmission: Ultegra crank with 52-42-24 rings, and a good chain. Gear inches of 19" in granny mode up to 128" in speeding down hills mode. SRAM shifters, and rear derallier. Ultegra front derallier. Smooth shifting, recently adjusted.
Wheels: New Mavic rear rim, with 36 spokes, trued professionally in early August 2005 at Coventry Cycles. Stelvio rear rubber in good shape. Front wheel: Matrix Bontranager, 36 spokes.
Head-set: The finest built right here in Portland by Chris King. Should go for-ever without any problems.
Luggage: Blackburn rear rack, and Terracycle under-seat racks. ERRC Long panniers included with only 6 days of use this summer when I toured on Vancouver Island. Hostell Shoppe frame bag. Jandd front handlebar bag.
Cockpit: RANS seat, 4 water bottle cages, Cateye 8 computer, dingbell, Topeak Road Morph pump.
Pedals: Light-weight smooth turning Bebops.
Wet days: Planet Bike fenders with mud flaps all in fine shape.
Car transportation: I have the Topper Industries Long bike rack (a $195 cost) that fits nicely on top of my Yakima round bars for my Subaru Outback. Neither Yakima racks or Subaru are for sale...
Paint scheme: Custom green paint (Chrysler minivan of some sort I think) in very good shape. Remember, paint can be changed at the owners discretion down the road for about $200 I have been told.
Bike location: I live in Vancouver Washington 20 minutes from the Portland International Airport. I am 3 hours by car from Seattle center and 3 hours from Eugene outskirts.
Why it's for sale: I am headed in to see the doctor for minor surgery (nothing major) but I really don't know what will happen with bike riding afterwards. Still, one can hope for the best...
My integrity: I am a college professor who consults as a horticulturist for southwest WA. I can be trusted to keep my word and do biz in a professional manor. I have thoroughly enjoyed this bent for the last 18 months having participated in 6 citizen rides here in the Pacific Northwest. Many miles on the track stand in the garage during the winter to the waist line thin.
