So this is happening: I’m selling my race bike to buy… pretty much the same bike. I’m putting this up on LFGSS this weekend only, it’ll be on facebook from Tuesday.
Out and out race bike with Ultegra 6900 (mechanical) group, 4iii power meter and hollowgram full-carbon clincher wheels. 7.1kg with cages and peds. Very well maintained..Not a scratch on it other than one (photographed) that it came with from the factory.

Purchased this in 2017 after a car took me out and cracked my previous generation bike. After looking at the sizing I dropped from a 61 to a 58 but, after having a new bike fit done it was evident that a 6’6” guy riding a 58 was a a bit of a stretch. I made the best of it this year with a longer seat post but an opportunity to buy an Ultimate in the next size up has presented itself and I’m going to take it.
I’ve been riding the Ultimate in it’s various guises since 2010 and with this current generation I really do think it’s the best mix of aero, weight and stiffness. I’ve also had none of the problems that I had with the previous designs cracking at the seat tube. If you’re worried on that front: don’t be, I put out 1500 watts in efforts and this thing does fine.
I’ll be buying my next bike from Canyon and will port over the tyres, saddle, bar tape and repackage the bike in Canyon’s box so all you’ll need to do it whack your pedals and cages on.
Happy to do collection in Bath or post a cost.
Not splitting, not doing ono, if you want to outbid someone that's fine by me. Highest bidder over asking wins 9am Tuesday morning.
Turns out that the scratch that was on it when I first got it has gone... can’t find it. Obvs the DS crank arm has wear, NDS fine.
Non drive side:
Needless to say: with me running max extension on seatpost and fork there’s no marking/lack of adjustability for you.
I'm an idiot, posted in wrong subforum. Closing for replacement here: https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/337661/
