Track bike bought new from Spokes and Slopes (Milton) in 2016 and only ridden at the velodrome. Never crashed. Wheel bearing cones and ball bearings have been replaced. I've also removed the Mr. Geeky the headtube sticker. Original 3/32" drivetrain with 48t chainring, comes with 14t, 15t and 16t cogs. If you don't like the cow catcher pista handlebar (I never used it) I'll throw in an aluminum FSA ergo-bend road bar 40 cm I bought for another bike and never used.

You want to go fast and light. You're sick of your clunker. So you checked out the local bike shop, Sport Chek, Sporting Life, and now you're here. Why might you want this instead of a new, low end aluminum road bike? 1) More carbon comfort. You can get a new $1000 bike with a carbon fork, but this also has carbon seat stays and a carbon seat post. This bike is one of the original Roubaix concept line that was made for real world road riding favouring comfort over ultimate stiffness. Since it's not super stiff, it's more suited to lighter riders. 2) The triple (30-42-52): The next best thing to Di2! Great shifting, broad range and small jumps between cogs, If things are fairly flat you won't even need to touch the front derailleur, and you have fine selection of speeds at the rear. 9 speed cassette 12-23 3) Shimano Flightdeck computer with gear indicator and virtual cadence. The control buttons are on the shifter hoods. Other specs of note: Full 105 Mavic Aksium Race wheels Size small (fits roughly 5"3-5"7 - not sure? come for a test ride!) It's red. Even the Michelin tires. Tuned up and ready to go, works great!

To The Point - UST Rims and Tires
This year I got a new non-current bike from 2013 and it has UST rims and tires. I do not understand why, but they came with tubes in. Seems like extra weight for nothing, so I took them out. Pumped them with a floor pump. Wheels seem light. Works great. It is pretty tough to unseat the bead with the tire deflated, so I'm not worried about burping. The maxxis crossmark lust are not great in the wet, so I've been poking around for something knobbier. UST seems to be dead. There are plenty of tubeless ready tires, but I really don't want to mess with sealant, particularly if you have to re seal periodically-what a pain! Don't multiple coats of sealant eventually weigh as much as a butyl inner layer? And the mess? All over the rim? Are UST tires that bad? What am I missing?

DeVinci Hucker 1 Jr. freeride style hardtail, Truvativ triple crank, Shimano Acera rapidfire, 9 speed cassette, cable actuated disc brakes. Frame is a standard size XS but a ten-year-old gets some more standover and a bit lower gearing with the 24" wheels. The frame will accept 26" wheels, so you if you catch it right your young rider can get some easier rolling in that last season (we tried that, but really missed the window for putting the 26ers on and he only used them once - we'd consider selling them also if someone is interested). All components are in great shape, bike has just a few scratches.

A basic cyclocross bike that makes a great commuter for small people. The growing-like-a-weed teen has left another one! This is an aluminum cyclocross bike with Sora 9-speed components, and comes with fenders. Was used for two summers to get to camp and friends' houses and is now way too small. It's still in terrific shape, and, unlike a new Nashbike, it comes completely assembled and adjusted and ready to go.
