    Clear-out following a house move and annoyingly I have decided to try and sell these. I have worn them a grand total of four times since purchase last year (cost me £165). I bought them with the intention of using them as my 'Sunday best' pair but I just cannot get on with them, the chamois is slightly too narrow for me and the straps sit awkwardly on my chest.

    They are in practically new as you would expect. No loose threads or marks anyway. The chamois is totally mint. Freshly laundered of course.

    Pictures are rubbish but a link to them for sale on Le cols website is here, still £140.

    I can provide more pictures if required. Yours for £90, I will post, or collection can be arranged from Hampton court area or on my commute through Richmond/Putney/Chelsea/Southwark tube areas.

    Free bump, have seen these wheels when collecting other bits from Dawid and can confirm condition is top, just like the seller.

    @Glws Not looking to split at this time, to be honest I will probably try to sell elsewhere if no immediate success on here before resorting to a split. I will let you know if I do though.

    Thought I would try this for sale on here before trying rubbish selling platforms/forums with not so nice people....

    Specialized S-works Roubaix SL4, 56cm frame
    Fitted with 6870 Ultegra Di2 shifting and Mavic cosmic exalith wheels. Frame is all black with raw carbon finish.

    Previous owner (from new) put about 4000 miles on her. The frame is in superb condition, with only a few minor scuffs from general use which I have tried to capture in the photos.

    Since ownership I have fitted Ultegra Di2 and Dura Ace brakes. The chainset is a Quarq elsa power metre (needs new battery). All included in the sale. I have put a grand total of 0 miles on this bike since purchase, the frame is just too big for me (I’m 5ft 9” for reference), and having bought it for a couple of Dura Ace spares I needed, I then decided to complete a few different projects.

    Zipp aero bars and 110mm enve stem. S-works bottle cage included. The bike also has a ceramic speed bottom bracket bearing. I have also fitted Mavic cosmic carbon SLE exalith 50mm carbon wheels.

    The Di2 has been updated, including cool features such as the front mech automatically adjusting when you change up and down the cassette.

    The steerer is uncut, hence the lump of spacers at the front. There are a few scuff marks on power metre crank arms, primarily on the drive side as pictured.

    Wheels: Mavic Cosmic Carbone SLE Exalith 50mm
    Tyres: 25mm Continental GP 4-seasons
    Brakes: Dura ace, fresh Mavic exalith pads
    Shifters: Ultegra 6870 Di2
    Front mech: FD-6870 Ultegra
    Rear mech: RD-6870 Ultegra
    Chainset: Quarq Else SRAM Power metre (BB30), 52-36t 172.5mm, KMC-11 quick link chain
    Bottom bracket: Ceramic speed BB30
    Saddle: Speciliazed romin pro evo
    Bars: Zipp carbon 420mm
    Stem: Enve 110mm
    Cassette: Shimano 6800 11-12
    Pedals: Not included.

    Should be visible here but here is a selection. If you want any more specific ones please ask.

    I am located in South Wimbledon for another week (until the 10th August), then I will be out in the sticks in Hampton Court (Molesey to be precise) where the bike can be viewed. Alternatively I could meet up the road in Walton on Thames. I could do day viewings with notice, otherwise morning or evenings are best.

    I have no idea what to price this at, so starting at £2,400 o.n.o. and see what happens, I don’t think that is far from the mark given the spec of this bike though!

    Any questions please ask.

    Removed from a 2016 Canyon Aeroad, only used in the dry. Selling due to DA upgrade. Not even a scratch on the underneath of these, probably done sub 1000 miles. Dual pivot, comes with all fixings. Photos here.


    Also for sale from the same bike, with the same milage, is a Shimano Ultegra 6800 52-36 MB 170mm chainset. Again, hardly a mark on this is pictured. Only selling due to DA upgrade. Comes with preloader. Photos here.


    Located in South Wimbledon for another week, then I will be out in the sticks in Hampton Court but can meet on my commute in and around Southbank/Waterloo/Putney, or can post.
