Yep, it only takes us 5 business days in general to ship the bikes we have in our PreOwned section. This particular bike is unique in that it is a fixed gear. It’s an old frame with mostly new parts which include a rare Shimano XT sealed cartridge bearing headset, Shimano Dura Ace 7700 crank (with sealed cartridge bearing bottom bracket) and 7800 brake, Phil Wood low flange hubs (the rear being double fixed, both of course being sealed cartridge bearing), Schwalbe Stelvio tires, and your choice of handlebars. Based on the selection on the latter, we’ll install some brake lever(s), give it a good once over so it comes with the same lifetime guarantee on the frame, build you a new stem so the bike fits you perfectly (assuming the mainframe itself fits), and ship it out. This is a wonderful machine robust enough to handle the challenge of storming the urban castle. All this for a mere $2000. Let me know if you’d like to make yourself the new owner of this pre-owned custom bike. By the way, since I’m running a bit behind on the Bike Friday First Friday Fabulous Fixed Gears, we’ll count this as this month’s entry. 😀 I have plenty more to come in the future. Perhaps next month’s entry will be the new owner of this beautiful machine…
