  • Tried to sell on ebay, but time of year/day/ the wind/price(?)/size of wheels saw it fail.
    Will try on here for a week and if no coin interest, will go for splitting.
    Not sure if you can still use 650c wheels in adult categories for Tri but youths & ladies can AFAIK.

    t3h thursday price drops >>>> £275 POSTED!** <<<<<

  • dibs cranks if you split

  • No worries. Rings are an unusual 39t + 56t DA 7400s

  • 56t chainring lust...

  • t3h price drops are in effect.
    £325 > £295 > £275 posted!!!!!
    Its worth more in parts, which I may resort to in order to keep wolves out.

  • Last price drops.
    £260 posted by some form of courier. No interest then splitting >>>> No idea if frame on its own would be any use to anyone though? It is sexy light (<4lb with fork & headset) if that helps.

  • Is this bike still available?

  • Nope, she's long gone. Was sick light, and quick, but never used it as found out the local TT groups were more up their own arses then thought possible, so stuck with road/mtb instead.
