    2009 Specialized Tarmac Elite Road Bike

    OK, here it is, back up for sale. Size 54. Bought it new in 2010, it's been a great bike, but the new road bike is on it's way, so maybe it's time for someone else to enjoy this bike. Frame probably has 3000 road miles on it, wheels probably closer to 2200. Bottom bracket was replaced when the crankset was swapped (couple of weeks ago).

    Full carbon frame/fork
    Original wheels
    Recently upgraded to a lightly used SRAM Force groupset (carbon cranks, very light, shifts great)
    Fresh cables and housing
    Shimano 105 pedals
    Fresh SRAM Red bar tape (black)
    Includes the bottle cages
    Bike weighed 20.1 lbs with the Shimano 105 group, I would bet it's down around 19 with the Force, maybe even 18.5
    Needs brake pads at the moment, but I'm sure I have a set around that can go with it, along with some tires (the ones on it still have plenty of life left too)
    Does NOT include the Garmin computer or sensors

    $1100

    Bump. Spring is coming. Sometime. Maybe. I hope. Or I need to move south.

    Can it wheelie?

    If it can wheelie Clinton should buy it.

    It can definitely wheelie. It's a challenge.

    Yup, it will wheelie. Although I only got a small wheelie out of it and it was strictly a power wheelie, definitely not clutched up and nowhere near balance point.



    I won that hilltop sprint though.

    Peter Sagan is not normal. Not that any pro cyclist is normal, but he's abnormal even by their standards. His bike control rivals some professional trials riders.

    Easter bump. I'll even throw in the Garmin speed/cadence sensor (about $60 new, IIRC). I'll be heading down I-91 Thursday night and back up Monday at some point, so I can meet somewhere along there if you're interested.

    Bump. If there's interest, I'll put the Shimano 105 group back on the bike and let it go for $1000.

    Re: 2009 Specialized Tarmac Elite Road Bike

    Because someone must want to be in way better shape for racing, and there's not many better ways to do it than riding a bicycle.

    And for the right offer, the Venge could be yours too.

    I resemble that remark... but I'm gonna go out on a limb & guess that 200 bucks isn't the "right offer"

    I've been thinking about getting a road bike for a while now but I'm so po' I can't afford the 'or'
