Excellent! Then I got the right bike for you (yes, that’s right– half off!). This is a unique, mint condition, barely ridden, Midnight Blue Pocket Rocket Pro that features the titanium Easy Pack seatmast, a light fixed-height stem riser, and a special, one-off unicrown fork. Being that it has a 56cm effective top tube, it’s right in the middle of our range of sizes and so should work well for a wide range of people but especially those within the 5’6"-5’10" range.
It’s spec’d as follows:
|Bottom bracket||FSA Platinum Pro ISIS|
|Cassette||Shimano Capreo 9-26|
|Crank||FSA Gossamer Compact 172.5mm|
|Derailleur, front||Shimano 105|
|Derailleur, rear||Shimano Tiagra|
|Handlebars||Salsa Pro Road 44cm|
|Hub, front||Shimano 105 32o|
|Hub, rear||Shimano Capreo 32o|
|Inner tubes||Presta 451mm|
|Rims||Sun CR-18 32o|
|Saddle||Terry Liberator Race|
|Shifters||Shimano Tiagra STI|
|Spokes||DT 14ga Stainless|
|Stem||Thomson Elite 90mm|
|Tires||Primo Comet 1-1/8" 110psi|
It also comes with front and rear fenders, a Specialized bottle cage, and nice Salsa quick releases for the seatmast, seatpost, and rear end. If there are further accessories you might want, we can have them installed at the shop and charged per our standard pricing. We can also easily pack the bike in a suitcase if you like and ship it out however you want. So feel free to add on!
FYI, this is an employee’s bike who has been met with some difficult circumstances and so all of the proceeds will go to help him and his family out.. and further help keep the Bike Friday machine well maintained. So not only do you get a great bike, but all the proceeds go to a good cause. Consider it a charitable donation, for that matter! Just don’t claim it on your taxes. 😀
