It weighs in at 21.4 pounds - in race mode, with cages and Candy pedals on. (Race mode is with just the one chain ring and no front derailer). It has the normal wear and tear for a bike that gets plastered in mud for 2 months of the year. TARDME page here >>
I have done two seasons of cross on this bike and it really is a nice bike.
I think the thin frame tubes stop it from picking up mud on all but the muddiest of courses.

uber-cantis on the back. Way better than most cantis.
Rear brakes by Critical Racing from back in the day.

Candys have a reputation for light weight and a need for maintenance. They are still the best pedal for Cyclocross in my book. As long as you only race on them and service them once a season. Still life left in these ones.
The saddle is a Specialized Phenom that was once ridden for 18 hours a day for 4 and a half days with no long-term botty-trauma that couldn't be cured by a weeks rest and some counselling. These are great saddles actually.
The seat-post is a bullet proof Thomson.
The cranks are uber-light FSA octa-link carbons with a durace BB.
These cranks have been very well used with at least two years of solid commuting but they are still solid-as. Don't look at me like that, I didn't bore the holes in the chain rings! The front deralier is a no-name. No idea sorry.
|Photo with my road wheels on, these wheels are NOT for sale.|
Stem is a well-used Tune. World class German Engineering.
|This is how it is being sold. (Without the rear tail-light!)|
135mm wide rear Tune hub. Screw-on slow-release axels.
This is an out-of-the-box ready to roll competitive CX-bike or a comfortable all day gravel grinder.
I'm not sure why I am selling it. It's a very pretty and totally competitive bike, too many bikes I guess. If it doesn't sell I wont be sad.
