hey all! there are some nice bikes on here, would love to hear if somebody could help me out...i am looking for a tri specific bike, middle of the road. i have been looking to spend in the $1000 range, but open to ideas for a very special bike (ie, full carbon, newer) for a bit more.

anybody have a bike that needs a good home? i am in CA, don't mind shipping it, but i can pick up from San Fransisco to San Diego with no problem

thanks!

How tall are you and what is your inseam? I may have just the bike for you, but it is most important that it fits (51cm on 650c wheels).

inseam works but you may be a little tall on the torso. I highly suggest that you measure up on competitive cyclist. The measurement for the arcole can be found here:

and a nice review of the bike can be found here

Hi! I have a 2005 QR Kilo that I'm thinking about selling. Its in great shape and I've been very meticulous about maintenance. It's got pretty low miles (about 2500 - about 800 of those on a trainer) and LOTS of life left in it. Its got a couple of paint chips but has never been crashed.

It's a 53cm frame and I'm a little shy of 5'10" with a 30" inseam. I'm guessing that the right fitter could make you nice and comfy on this bike.

$1K shipped if you're interested. I'll have my LBS pack it up so that it doesn't get busted up.

Specs (bold items are upgrades)
  • Aluminum frame
  • Carbon fiber fork
  • Shimano 105 Front & Rear derailleur
  • DuraAce bar end shifters
  • FSA Gossamer Crank
  • FSA ISIS Drive Bottom Bracket
  • FSA headset 
  • Vision TT bar
  • FSA RD-80 wheels (700c)
  • Michelin ProRace2 tires (minimal use)
  • Wipperman Gold Link chain (makes it SUPER easy to take off and clean)
  • New bar tape
  • H5 Rear Hydration system
  • Profile Design Tri Stryke Saddle (one that came with the bike was BRUTAL!)
  • LOOK A3 Pedals (and cleats) - if you want them
In the interest of full disclosure, the attached pic shows a different seat and different chainrings and the computer is not included. Also, I can send LOTS more pics if you're interested.

not sure if  you are still looking but i have a 2009 Kuota K-factor that is in exceptional shape. i am 5'9 and the the seat post and head tube have not been cut (this will leave you lot's of room to get that perfect fit). the  2010 k-factor is basically the same exact bike but it sells for 2,800 for the ultegra setup. i'll sell it with water bottle cage and aero-drink mount and bottle. i also, have a hed 3 rear tubular or a set of zipp flashpoint s60's if you would prefer depending on how much you want to spend.  the bike is mint, only used for 1 1/2 seasons. call me or email for more details 484-683-5499 or [email protected]
