Show Bike for Sale

Tonight in the shop I am going to be starting the work on a down tube replacement.  I built a very cool concept frame for the North American Handmade Bicycle Show this past February in Richmond, Virginia.  It was fitted with S & S couplers, Columbus LIFE tubing and the frame was the first in the world to hide a real time GPS transponding device inside the down tube.  A concept frame is exactly what it was, and it really wasn’t suited to the rigors of real-world riding.  To fit the device I needed a gigantic mixed material 1 3/4″ carbon/steel down tube.  This huge tube was way too heavy and would have created way too stiff a ride for 99% of people out there.  I am going to replace the down tube with a much more modest 1 3/8″ steel version, and it will still have an S & S coupler.  The frame has a 54 cm C-C seat tube, and a 54.5 cm C-C top tube.  Full geometry available upon request.  Designed to be a great all-around road bicycle.  It will be completely repainted and sold as a complete bicycle.  The plan right now is for SRAM Force gruppo, Easton EC90SLX fork amd Ritchey components.  If you contact me before I paint it we can work on a paint design together and tweak the components. 

Full Retail Price $5250: Frame $1500, Columbus LIFE Upgrade $150, Brushed S & S Couplers $600,  S & S Hard Plastic Case $400, SRAM Force Gruppo $2000, Easton EC90SLX Fork $300, Fulcrum Racing 5 Wheelset $300.

Discounted Price $4000 w/ free Shipping to Lower 48
