Keep checking back...I'll be updating this list regularly as I progress through the big clean-out! If you're interested in any of these items, please direct your questions to my email.
(Items greyed-out have been SOLD!)
Thirty-five years ago, there were 65% fewer cars on the road as today. Riding road bikes, even in a small Southwest Georgia town, never felt particularly dangerous. Even riding directly through town on the most well-traveled routes was a daily occurrence, as I commuted from my parents' suburban home to the bike shop in the old part of downtown Albany. The rural roads and neighborhoods were easy; we even hosted winter training races, north of town, with 30 or so riders on open roads.
I don't need to say how...but all that changed with the availability of vehicle financing and the invention of cell phones.
Undoubtedly the risk was always there, but my awareness of it changed. The numbers definitely changed. I didn't know people who were killed by cars, back then. Now, I know several. I know many more who have been hit, most during hit-and-run incidents.
Nice wheels with no miles. Don't ask...I do things like this.
$350 and shipping gets you a set of as-new Carver C38 (38mm) carbon wheels with Novatec hubs and an 11-speed Shimano freehub. PLUS...I'll throw in the Challenge Strada 25 tires. I generally do a great job of gluing tubulars, but I recommend re-doing the gluing for your own peace of mind.
Rim width is 23mm.
Skewers ARE included.
Again, these have NO miles on either the wheels or the tires. Basically, they were built up for a project that never quite transpired.
Shipping in the CONUS is usually around $30. I'll get you the actual figures. Paypal, check, or other funds are fine. We can work that out on the phone.
Close, but not quite!
11 weeks on from my broken hip, I rode my Specialized Aethos road bike, today. I have been riding a Canyon Grail:ON electric (pedal-assist) gravel bike for a few weeks. If you have been pooh-poohing electric bikes (as I had), you're missing the point; they're EXCELLENT recuperative tools. The Grail:ON is an excellent bike, to a point. It's quick, but heavy. As a class three electric bike, it provides pedal-assist up to around 28 mph (at 350 Watts) through the exceptional Bosch motor. This power seems MOST useful in compensating for the heaviness of the bike itself. At 35 pounds with pedals, it's not light and quick when not under power.
ENVE Classic 56mm tubular rims laced to DT Swiss 240S hubs. Currently Shimano / SRAM 11-speed, but convertible to 12-speed XDR Thru-axle (just did a set myself).
FloCycling clinchers are SOLD!
