Titanium Zombie Road Bike -

Yep, this is the one that got lots of media attention.  I cut the tubes for this one a while back as I knew I wanted to have a frame to experiment on to push the limits of ceramic coating.  It now needs a home.  Full of hidden details, it's a fun bike and is perfect for the club racer who desires a bike for both racing and longer social rides.  Lots of pictures online, see the previous blog entries or FB for links to better pics than I could ever take.  Here is the important info:

Candy Road Bike -

This bike was constructed for a local client who experienced some job/economic difficulties prior to taking receipt of the bike. We've hung onto it for a couple of months in hopes that things would turn around for him...alas, it's time to get my money back out of it.
This is a steel road bike built with a mix of Dedda and Columbus tubing, SS couplers, custom fork, all sprayed with a multi layer candy metallic finish that fades from sunset red to orange to yellow as it wraps around the tubes. Groovy headbadges are scattered around the frame to give some visual breaks in the spectrum. Built with SRAM Red components and Stan's Alpha 340 Team wheels with Michelin tubeless road tires, it is a very nice road bike for club racing or exploring the pavement of foriegn countries. It is definitely a fast/sporty feel...for those who like to ride hard and go fast.

Head tube angle - 71.5
Seat tube angle - 73
Top tube - 58cm
Seat tube (c to c) - 44cm
Chain stay length - 415mm

Center of bar/stem to ground - 95cm

Compact geometry to fit in a travel case.  Would fit a rider 5'10" to 6'2" within it's adjustable range.
Price is $5000.00 or best offer plus shipping

Lots more pictures of both bikes available by request.

1998 Litespeed Titanium Classic frame - 57cm

This is a New Old Stock frame that I took in on trade for a local shop I did some work for.  The frame was originally a complete bike, the parts were sold off of it for a customer and the frame sat in the back room for years.  I've been told that other than a test ride before it was taken apart, the frame has no miles on it.

I contacted Litespeed to confirm the details and they advised it is a 57cm frame built in 1998, serial number c4b2f36022.  The customer service rep stated that the serial number is different from their current standard, as the format changed when Lynsky sold out.  He stated the additional numbers were used to designate who welded the frame, but could not provide a name of the welder as that information had been lost in the transition.  Kinda some cool info. 

Frame is in nice shape with no significant blemishes noted.  There is a slight wrinkle on the drive side decal from aging, barely perceptable in the pic.  I threw it on the alignment table and everything checked out.

Price is $650.00 plus shipping

Wheel set -

Stan's No Tubes Alpha 340 Team wheelset, built with 3.30 hubs, double butted spokes (2.0/1.7), radial front wheel and radial/2 cross pattern in the rear.  The set in new in box, never opened.  These are designed to be run with tubeless road tires.  Shimano/SRAM compatible cassette hub.

Look here for more info.

Price is $500.00 plus shipping

That's all for now, thanks!
