For Sale: Pearson Touche 60cm

Posted on

    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.­688/PEARSON_TOUCHE_BLUE_SINGLE_SPEED­P188.bs_bike1.pdf

    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.
