High End Commuter Bike - Civia Hyland Alfine Build

$800 USD
I am regretfully parting with the best bike I have EVER owned, as my job will not accommodate a bicycle commute. This is a purpose-built aluminum framed Civia Hyland from 2008. I am 5'7" and it fits well, would fit larger. This bike is no longer built, as the quality cost money and money isn't cheap, and the company was acquired by a larger conglomerate (BMC?) and existing stock sold off. The Hyland was available in three builds: the Rohloff Build at $3,500; the Alfine Build at $2,160; and the SRAM i-Motion 3 Build at $1,590. This is the Alfine Build model. Matte sage green satin finish. Aluminum frame has a number of unique features including sliding dropouts with built-in disc brake mounts, a “cable tunnel” formed into the downtube and chainstays for clean routing of control cables, and stainless steel hardware throughout. The fork is carbon fiber; it too has a “tunnel”, this one for the wire running from the generator to the headlight. It also has a disc brake mount and built-in guides for the hydraulic brake cable. Aluminum frame, stainless components and CF fork make this bike corrosive resistant for those lovely Seattle rides, which can't be said for all those bikes at REI and Greggs. The Hyland Alfine Build is outfitted with the full Shimano Alfine component group. It includes a single crank, front and rear disc brakes with levers, front dynamo hub, and an 8-speed internal gear hub (IGH) with shifter. The heart of the Alfine group is the 8-speed internal gear hub and matching RapidFire shifter. Can't say enough good about this internal gear system for the weather... you can effortlessly shift while sitting still, coasting, pedaling, and even while under power. Missed shifts are non-existent with this hub and every shift is precise, quick, and quiet. The hydraulic disc brakes are powerful and are strong enough to lock either wheel with 2-3 fingers. These brakes perform flawlessly and require little maintenance - the front brake needs to be bled but other than that they are dialed in. The Civia branded rear rack is solidly built and quite stiff. I carried full loads of groceries and heavy commute loads with no issues. Also have a kit bag I will throw in as well as rear light. I'd add a 3 light LED to the stock front light, or swap it out if you ride at night a lot. The Hyland’s DT Swiss disc-specific rims are sufficiently tough and reasonably light, and the factory tires are good with reflective sidewalls. Other components are what you’d expect on a high-end commuter bike, with a micro-adjust Thomson seat post and Thomson stem, Salsa seat post clamp, and Cane Creek headset. I added a Brooks Flyer spring saddle and custom leather Lock-on grips. Colormatched SPD pedals. This bike is quick and responsive without being twitchy, geared perfectly for Seattle commutes, and bulletproof. PLEASE don't embarrass yourself with any lowball offers; while I am a reasonable person and will discuss options, if you recently hit your head and then hit send on a goofy email/text, you will be ignored and openly mocked to strangers.
