FS: Bontrager CX Cyclocross Bike
- I am selling my handbuilt Bontrager CX cyclocross racing bike in
excellent condition. The size is a Large, with a 54cm seat tube and a
58.1cm effective top tube measured center to center. Standover is
32.4 inches with a slightly sloping top tube. This bike would fit
someone approx. 5 ft 10 or over, depending on body type.
This is a superior 'cross bike for racing or road/off recreational road riding.
The frame and fork was designed by Keith Bontrager and handmade in
Bontrager's shop in Santa Cruz, CA - the TIG welds are immaculately
done. Tubing is highest quality double butted True Temper steel - it
is an extremely light steel bike. Ask the racers - they will tell you
this is one of the finest cyclocross racing bikes ever designed and
built. There are no dings, dents or rust on this frame; the flaws are
limited to a few small cosmetic scratches.
This frame features the Keith Bontrager designed and built curved
blade fork, not the Steelman straight blade fork used a few years
later for this model.
The components are top quality and range from new to excellent
condition - Shimano Ultegra 600 crankset, XT front derailler, LX
rear derailler, 8 speed indexed Dura Ace barend shifters, XT
cassette, and Suntour XC Pro cantilever brakes with Shimano levers.
The bike also includes a Chris King headset, Salsa steel stem and a
USE XCR suspension seatpost, the best and lightest available.
The wheelset: up front is a Syncros hub radially laced to a Sun ME14A
rim. Rear hub is Ultegra laced to a Sun ME14A rim. Both are 32 spoke.
Tires are Ritchey CrossMax with very little wear. No pedals included.
Priced to sell quickly - I am asking $799 plus shipping.
I have pics I can email upon request. Contact me off list with any
questions. Thanks for looking.
