    Softride powerwing XL

    Maybe not vintage but probably classic Softride Powering tt/tri bike. $500 plus shipping

    650c rolf vector wheelset. front 20 spoke radial rear 24 2x spin like rolfs do

    cranks 53/42 175 ultegra
    9 speed cassette 12-25
    shifters DA
    rd ultegra
    fd 105
    brake calipers 105
    brake levers dia-compe
    headset cane creek c2
    fork unknown carbon w/alloy steerer
    cockpit profile design Aerolite very adjustable
    stem 105mm c-c

    wheelbase 100cm
    chainstay 38cm

    softride calls it a 60cm

    standard measurements for the st and tt are not possible so this is what I've measured

    from center of cranks to center of rails on seat via a line through the seat clamp bolt=st measurement
    from center of headset cap to ctr of seat clamp bolt= tt meaurement


    lowest setting w/seat forward on beam st 72.5cm tt 52cm
    " rearward st 75cm tt 63.5cm

    highest setting seat forward st 81cm tt 50cm
    " rearward st 86cm tt 61cm

    bike is in good condition with the exception of chain suck going through the paint. Shifts well, brakes well. The rear tire is good but the front is cracked and should be replaced. Feel free to ask questions or request more photos.

    9 speed 105 sure is the right groupset for that frame!

    I've always wanted one of those. Just for the conversation. No one talks to me otherwise.
