This is a fully custom oversized sprint-geometry steel track bike built in 2013. It was built for maximum stiffness and speed. There aren't any frames available that are suitable for we tall sprinters, so I saved up for a long time and had one built. Instead of regular wimpy-man sized tubing, this bike was spec'd with the largest diameter steel tubing available (see the Moth Attack bike for reference of how this tubing looks on a smaller-sized frame). It's also got a super-stiff carbon Serenity fork that was sourced by I.F. and painted at the same time as the frame. This fork has a 1.5" lower bearing area for max stiffness and strength. The fork is held in the frame by a 1.5" Chris King headset. The paint is to die for- it's absolutely gorgeous. It only has a couple chips on on the chainstay area and one or two little bumps. Nothing of note. Everything about this bike was built for strength and stiffness, despite its large size. Even the Deda steel handlebars and Profile stem are strong as hell. The outboard-bearing Omnium crank can handle the watts, and the Thomson seatpost doesn't flex even during the hardest in-saddle accelerations. The classic aluminum wheels with Dura Ace high flange hubs are stiff and strong and fast and dependable. They're sporting Vittoria TT tubies to limit rolling resistance. I have plenty of gears available, so you may choose which one you'd like to come with the bike. If by chance I don't have what you want, I'll include the closest (in inches) that I have. The sweet Dura Ace pedals do NOT come with the bike- they were a gift and I'm attached to them. I'm pretty much done with track cycling for now, so I'm getting out. For an extra $300, I'll throw in an extra steel fork with a brake for training on the road (38mm offset, King race, el cheapo brake. It matches the paint really well- see picture). I'll also throw in a spare set of clincher wheels (also for road training), track gear bag with all of the gears, chains, spares, tools, and even rags. It's several hundred dollars worth of stuff, and you know it'll fit and work with this bike because it has been proven to. This bike is built solidly for tall guys. If you're looking for a really big track bike, your options for stock bikes are pretty limited. The Felt TK2 is probably your best bet, but it's a less stiff aluminum bike with basic wheels. This Indy Fab is a steal (pun?) in comparison. Geometry is as follows: Seattube: 576mm Top Tube: 618mm Head Tube: 190mm HTA: 75* STA: 74.5* Head Tube Extension: 18mm Wheelbase: 1029mm Standover: 860mm Chainstay: 395mm Fork Offset: 35mm As long as the ad is up, the bike's for sale.

This classy Serotta is easily one of the finest endurance bikes ever made. It's a full carbon, lugged-construction frame handmade in Saratoga Springs, New York. Serotta is widely respected for their extreme attention to detail in every aspect of their bikes. This carbon HSG model is equipped with Serotta's top-of-the-line F-series fork, a Chris King headset, full SRAM Force 10speed group (currently has a Dura Ace crank installed, but the Force crank can be included if you like), handbuilt wheels (Velocity A23 rims on 105 hubs), and Thomson post. No seat is included with this bike; don't you have your favorite anyway? This bike has been very well taken care of, and has served me extremely well. I'm sad to part with it, but it's time to move on to the next phase in my bicycling life. Here are the geometry numbers: Seat Tube Length: 62cm Seat Tube Angle: 73* Top Tube Length: 60cm Head Tube Length: 20.4cm Head Tube Angle: 73.5* BB Drop: 7.0cm Fork Rake: 4.3cm Standover: 87.9cm Please email with any questions. No trades or funny business.

GURU This is a badass large Guru Evolo-R road bike. It's built to be very stiff for large or powerful riders, but offer a supreme ride at the same time. When I got this bike, I was coming off of another carbon dream machine. I set new PRs on some of my favorite rides with this Guru almost immediately. It's fast fast fast. Seriously; it's fast. I'm a bit disappointed to be selling this bike, but I'm undertaking a new bike project, and need both the dough and the space. I wouldn't be selling this except to fund my new obsession- this is by far the fastest, best handling, coolest bike I've ever ridden. Here's the spec: - SRAM Red 10speed shifters, brakes, and derailleurs - SRAM Force PF30 compact crank (50/36) - SRAM Force cassette (11-25) - NISI tubular wheels - Vittoria Corsa tubulars - Ritchey WCS Carbon 110mm stem - Ritchey WCS EvoCurve 42cm bars - Ritchey Pro seatpost - Selle San Marco Turbo seat If tubulars aren't your thing (though they should be!), we can probably work something out with wheels. The bike is pictured with a red stem cap- that will be changed out to a black one before the sale. That's my lucky stem cap. Geometry is as so: Seat Tube Length: 622mm Seat Tube Angle: 73.8 Top Tube Length: 572m Head Tube Length: 250mm Head Tube Angle: 72.7 Fork Rake: 43mm BB Drop: 70mm Wheelbase: 1014.9mm Standover: 856.2mm There it is, folks. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email. That said, here are a few statements: - I don't want to trade. Not even for your Xbox. - I don't know if this will fit you, your wife, or anyone else. The geometry is above. - You may test ride in a parking lot if you bring the full amount in cash. You break it, you've bought it. - I'm happy to ship the bike if you're from out of town. - I'll drive up to 50 miles from zip 24060 to meet you if necessary. For this delightful service, I'll require a PayPal deposit of $100 which will be refunded ONLY if you show to the meeting. No show = no refund.
