It s a 44cm (S) compact road bike, featuring a TIG-welded Giant Compact ALUXX 6061 T-6 aluminum frame, and a Carbon fiber composite, aero crown front fork. Color is Gloss White/Blue Mirror. Front stem and seatpost provide lots of adjustability.
Bike features an Shimano Ultegra triple, 27-speed drivetrain. All the components are Ultegra save the front derailleur, which is still a Shimano 105. Wheels are Bontrager Race Lites with snappy blue rims. Bike seat is a Terry Butterfly and is included if sold to a lady. (If sold to a guy, we can discuss.) Cyclocomputer (Vetta, wireless, no cadence sensor) is included; pedals are not.
Bike is best suited to road riding, intro bike racing, intro triathlon, and/or charity rides. This bike is NOT going to serve you well for loaded touring, winter riding, or unpaved conditions. I also wouldn’t recommend it to tow young children with a trailer or trail-a-bike, although that’s on you to decide for yourself.
This is a great bike for the price. If you’re dreaming of a sprint or Olympic distance tri this year, or have a teen getting into racing, e-mail me to come and check this baby out: julieDON’TSPAMME@rideboldly.org. (Take out the part in all-caps.) Looking for a local (MSP) buyer only.
(Full disclosure: This is a nice bike. I am mostly selling it because I have my Orbea, which is completely unsuited to trailer use or unpaved conditions in its own right, and my Surly, which is a better all-around utility bike for hauling and use with my kids. I have limited garage space, and would rather send this on to a good home/good user who will ride it with love in his/her heart.)
