Pearson Touche 60cm

http://wrwills.webfactional.com/docs...y/IMAG0076.jpg

I went and bought a cyclocross bike so I am selling my Pearson Touche on the grounds that I can't really justify having 4 bikes. I bought it in May 2007 and used it every day for two years for my 5 mile commute in to work. I also took it on some sportives and audaxes and I even took it to the Herne Hill track a few times. It's the bike that got me seriously into cycling and it did so because it very nice to ride.

The dimensions are the same as those listed above at Pearson's website. Many of the components have been upgraded:
Specialites 48t chainring
Rear wheel: DT Swiss RR1.2 rims laced to a Miche primato hub (allows you to change sprockets easily: wheel currently has a 18t sprocket and I am also including 16t and 17t sprockets.
Carbon seatpost
Carbon forks: 72K Racelight
New oval stem
Ne KMC Chain -- used only a few weeks
Salsa handlebars (slightly narrower than standard road bars-- nice for commuting)
Extra cyclo cross brake
Racelight 12k Carbon Forks
Full length mudguards (they make commuting alot more comfortable)
Front tyre: Bontrager hardcase
Rear tyre: Continental Gatorskin
Saddle: Selle Italia SLR XP
Pedals: Shimano SPD

There are some scratches on the chainstays from where the chain fell off a few times but generally the frame is in good shape. Pearson do a good job at making a frame that will continue to look good as it ages. I'm also missing a handlebar plug on the left side but the bar tape is in good condition.

I removed the rear brake because I rode the bike fixed all the time, but I am including it in the sale, and it can easily be added back on.

I originally paid around 750 for the bike (before the wheel and saddle upgrades). I think that 350 would be a fair price.

I live in the Deptford/Greenwich area if anyone wants to come view the bike.
