This will be the second time I've sold all of my fixed bikes and components and I'll probably regret it since I keep coming back to fixed. Bike was originally bought with the intention of having a go at time trials with a single gear. I liked that the fork was drilled and previous owner did a good job.
The idea behind hollowtech cranks was so that I could use my stages power meter on the bike as well. The USE track chainring allows a straight chain line with road cranks and supposedly is more stiffer.
In a perfect world somebody would buy everything but split seems to work better on here.
Frame & Forks, Seatpost - Specialized Langster Pro 2013 - £230
2013 Frameset, Stealth paint, only Spesh logo is on headtube. Frame has its fair share of scars, worst is probably inside of the chain stay where I managed to drop the chain. Bottom bracket shell may need chasing as installing bb didn't feel smooth as usual. Drawing on the fork but I will wash it off. Fork drilled for brake. Lower headset bearing needs replacing.
Seatpost is from J&L. Not sure what happened with the old seat post, it was a copy of the original but kept slipping so was being held in place with a inner tube shim. This looked a bit dodgy when I first took a look and eventually a crack did form despite using a torque wrench and a ton of carbon paste, it has now been replaced with a new seat post, albeit not original but definitely not slipping, hasn't even been ridden yet.
Cranks - Shimano Ultegra 6600 172.5mm - £30
Great condition for age, will include original 53/39 rings
Chainring - 52T USE Track 130bcd - £40
Discontinued and hard to come by now. Plenty of life left on teeth but there is a crack on one of the mounting tabs, there are two tabs that fit either side the cranks so it shouldn't be too much of a problem. I have made sure not to tighten it too much.
BB - Shimano Hollowtech 2 -Either 105 or 9000 can't remember - £5 or free with cranks
Chain - Izumi Standard - £10
cut for 52/14 not sure how many links that is. I can count if you want.
Sprocket - Dura Ace 14T - £10
Bars - China Special - £90
I wanted bars with risers as I wasn't sure on fit. I bought these for £100 whilst I had an amazon prime trial going. They looked similar to the PDQ bars (£250) / Hong Fu HB029 (~£150 on aliexpress?) Construction seems fine but I'm not sure about the extension clamping on the carbon, maybe I would use alloy extensions. Been used for 2 time trials anyway.
Stem - Deda Quattro 90mm - £5
Saddle - Selle SMP T3 - £80 or trade for a white Composit :)
Comfy but don't like leather or the fact that it says Triathlon
Wheelset - Corima Aero Tubular / Corima Disc £280 or £130 front / £150 rear
Rear wheel is a corima disc, it is out of true and has a small weight stuck on the non drive side but I could barely tell when riding. Front wheel is a 12 spoke Corima Aero for road but with bolt on skewer, if you don't mind removing the tub and regluing then this needs truing.
or Mavic Open Pro T 32h on Hope Hubs, Gatorskin Tubs £100
Front has been braked on slightly.
Brake Levers - SRAM TT500 - £40
Ultegra 6700 Front Brake - £15
Also have a few 1/8 sprockets from 15 - 19T available
Examples of Complete Build:
Fixed TT - As pictured + brake + levers £800
Track Pursuit - As pictured £760
Track - Mavic Tubular wheels, can supply some drop bars too. £580

Could you explain the crack you mentioned?
Is it the frame, seatpost or seattube?
The crack was in the seatpost which has now been replaced with a new one so is no longer an issue.
