get fit!

For anyone curious, the 953 road frame is still available, and if you're interested, but don't like the subtle etched logos, I can also update it with my Team-issue decals (orange panels).

I've also got a brand new Kinetic Rock and Roll trainer (in the box) with the pivoting front wheel stand as well.  I bought it last year, but never used it (i'd rather be out xc-skiing) and it's just collecting dust.  These are about as good as a trainer gets, the Rock and roll let's you get out of the saddle and rock the bike on the trainer.
$375 take it home.  This one is probably best for local pick-up, but I can ship it if you like.

And if anyone local is interested I've got a Nordic Track ski machine that's free to a good home.  Works great.

Just in time for winter!

used 953 frame for sale!

Well, the great sell-off has been incredibly successful, so I'm listing a frame here for a customer.  This is a rare chance to get a 953 stainless steel frame today with no wait!  Attitude blog readers will recognize this frame as it originally belonged to me.  It currently belongs to a customer and he's looking to sell the frame, fork, headset and seatpost. (I put pictures of the complete bike for reference only).  He's looking for $1600 for the package, which is an incredible deal.

This is a 58 x 58cm frame.  100% 953 tubing with a lot of special details.  Custom carved slant six lugs with "B" logo carved into the headlug.  Top-tube is round-oval-round.  The seatstay attachment is very unique, fastback style with a hidden binder all bare stainless.  Tubing is double oversize with 19mm seatstays. This frame is on the stiffer side for 953 as it's early tubing and the wall thickness was slightly over spec.  Very good for a rider 170-220 lbs.

The frame is currently in my shop and I can send you detailed pictures of anything you like.  There are a couple of scuffs on the drive side seatstay, but nothing serious.  I can probably rub them out before shipping. 

The fork is a Reynolds Ouzo pro carbon in nearly perfect condition.  Seatpost is Reynolds Ouzo comp carbon post in very good condition.  Headset is cane creek S-60, works perfectly.  If a buyer would like a complete bike, I can certainly provide a build package and assemble the bike.

In other news, I just finished another stainless steel frame and 2 more africa bikes.  The big news is that the africa bikes are no longer secret, so looks for pics here soon and blatant pleas for donations to keep the project moving!
