Touring 29er FOR SALE

Time to sell off one from the personal fleet:

Asking $2500 complete as pictured, but price is negotiable with build.  Custom frame fork and bars by me.  Frame was built in 2013, but never saw all that much use and probably has about 2000 miles on it.  Its been parted out and re-built once or twice and that said is a versatile platform for a good number of builds, and I am happy to keep, trade out, or re-build the build to make this bike fit your needs.  Price will vary of course.  Frame bag from D-Bo goes with the frame.  Fits riders 5'7"-5'11" or so.

Frame Features:
  • True Temper Supertherm main triangle with custom bent 4130 rear triangle and lugged seat tube.
  • Horizontal bottle opener dropouts with custom adjustable chainstay disc mount optimized for rear rack use and single-speedability.
  • Custom 4130 segment crown fork with rack mounts
  • Touring geometry and tubing selection for heavy loads and all day comfort
  • 3 sets of H2O Bosses
  • Lots of tire clearance: up to 29x2.4" or 27.5x2.8" rear/29x3.0" front with room for mud

  • 130mm x 44mm head tube for straight or tapered steerer
  • 27.2mm seat post
