WTS – Avanti Blade Pro (2006) – Sydney

Postby familyguy » Mon Mar 02, 2009 4:26 pm

The frame:
Avanti Blade Pro, 2006 model frameset, aluminium frame (7005 alum.), Avanti Carbonio Carbon Pro forks and seat stays

50cm c/c seat tube & 58c/c top tube - equates to a 58cm c/c seat tube in horizontal tt geometry-speak, 80cm standover at seat post

The bits:
105 FD (5500 version)
105 RD (short cage, 5500 version)
Triple front shifter (SL-R660)
9-speed rear shifter (SL-R440)
M.O. st compact double crankset (50/34, 175mm)
SRAM cassette 12-26
Tektro RX5 mini-V brakes
Tektro levers
WTB 90mm stem (31.8 centre)
Bilt Fatbutt bars (cut down)
Pro bar ends
Syntace lock-on grips
Tioga seat post
DiamondBack seat
Trek Incite 8i wireless computer

The wheels:
Shimano R500 wheelset with Specialized All Condition 28c tyres (good condition)

This was bought as a bare but unused (or very lightly used) frame on ebay two years ago and built up with parts and spares as a commuter/relaxation bike. Did a Sydney/Gong ride comfortably, would handle a rail trail or path with ease with the 28’s. The geometry just doesn’t seem to suit me, it doesn’t see enough use, plus I’m rethinking my commuting status.

If you're under 6', this will probably be too big.

Pick up and/or inspection in Cromer on weekends, or I can send you some detailed pictures if you want them. Link in sig. to Avanti for pic.

See last post...offers time...

Jim

Alright...this bike is taking up room, is being significantly under-utilised, and I cant leave it in my office forever.

I'm now open to offers for this bike. PM me!

The worst I can do is say no.

What is it with people? 18 watchers on ebay for 7 days and no biters...well, frankly, they're all 'biters'...fark me...

Hey Jim, I would love this bike... but not the right time for me to be buying...


However, I just sold my Avanti mountain bike via gumtree - sold in 1 day and had a lot of inquiries.

Its free to advertise, so can't hurt if no members here are interested in it.

Cheers,
