For sale is an original steel Specialized Sequoia. It was sold to me as a '92, which seems to be true; it's hard to find information on these very early models. I have read that the fluted seat stays mean it was built in Japan, and build and ride quality certainly lend themselves to that opinion. Size is a 55 square. Paint is in good, original condition, with a couple of chips on the TT and chainstay but zero dents or rust.
I put a very solid, reliable town and gravel build on it. The frame has excellent clearance for an older rig and can fit up to a 700x40 tire. Right now it's on almost brand new 35c Gravel King slicks and is a rocket around town or on packed gravel. It has tons of braze-ons on the fork for mounting options and rear eyelets as well.
Lots of fancy parts including:
-White Industries 135 rear hub, overhauled and recently laced up to DT Swiss rim (matches spacing on this frame). Front wheel is an Ultegra hub laced to a Stan's rim. Decals on both rims are removable if you want them to look perfectly matched
-Paul Components Cantilever brakes paired with vintage, period correct Real Design levers
-Paul Components Funky Monkey front cable hanger
-Nitto stem and custom DOOM bars w/ forward lean and backsweep
-Wolf Tooth narrow wide on original Specialized Flag cranks
-Gold Wolf Tooth bottle cage bolts
-10 speed XTR derailleur and cassette paired to Microshift thumbie—super smooth and crisp shifting
-Extremely low mile Gravel King tires, set up tubeless
I'm holding onto the saddle and pedals—the bike will come with a Brooks C17 cambium saddle in excellent condition installed. Fresh brake cables recently added.
Overall this is a beautiful and practical vintage rig. The ride quality is awesome and I've really enjoyed this bike. Selling to move onto a new project. I'd consider partial trades for interesting vintage stuff in a medium size range. I'm also open to doing a partial build/rolling chassis for the sale.
Restrictions: Reasonable offers only, Will consider bike related trade, Will ship within continent only
