Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

White Deep-V Carbon Fiber Rigida rims. W/Single Speed cog - $30
These are GIANT TCR Deep-v wheels that feature carbon spokes, rigida rims laced to a Giant carbon hub. It is currently setup with a single speed freewheel adapter.

I broke a few spokes and didn't look into getting them replaced hence the low price. The rims are not cosmetically perfect, but I can assure you they are structurally sound.

The wheels can be used as parts or if you can find some replacement spokes they can add a really unique look to your bike.

Shoot me an email if you are interested.

3 nice track bikes - $300 (Couve)

Date: 2011-02-27, 12:24PM PST
Reply to: sale-djrhd-2237703687@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

I have 3 nice track bikes for sale.
1. Orbea Lobular Track bike 57cm set up as a road fixed gear bike. It is about 6 years old and has a few nicks and dings but still has many more years of life left. Has SRAM ceramic bb, SRAM cranks, SRAM front break, and on Orbea full carbon fork. This bike could be a great around town bike or could be used on the track. Either way, a great buy for $300.

2. Orbea Lobular track bike 56cm set up for track. This frame is about 4 years old with ocasional use. It has a SRAM track crank (144 bolt pattern), Campy track hub on the rear, carbon fork, Zipp 440 front wheel, and alloy bar/stem. Would be a great bike for ripping it up on the track or could be used as an around the town bike. $400

3. Orbea Lobular track bike 57cm set up for track. This frame is about 4 years old with ocasional use. It has a SRAM track crank (144 bolt pattern), carbon fork, and Alloy bar/stem. This one is pictured with a pair of Bontrager x Lite carbon wheelsl which I am not as interested in selling. The frame without wheels would be $300. With the Bontrager Carbon wheels it would be $900. I also have a campy record rear track wheel and a clincher front wheel that could go on it for $100 ($400 total)


I have a variety of stems and bars so I can mix and match to get the right size if needed as well.

Lot of people just putting links to craigslist... COPY and PASTE the add contents into the post. Otherwise it is just pages of dead links.

Well I did start the thread...and I often find time to troll craigslist... I think most of the things I tend to find deserve a chuckle here and there.. Would it help if I added more context to my posts?

Oh man, no I was just teasing. It's fun to see what you find! I enjoy the good deals just as much as the absurd listings.

I wish I wasn't in a market full of Magnas and Roadmasters.

Id be willing to take both the GT and that e30 off his hands...although probably for less than he would want for either.

^ I like how he's trying to sell a $50 headset for 110 bucks.

Also, does Avenir even make a track crankset? If so, I doubt it's worth $250.



Leader 725tr track frame and forks - $375
FSA ZeroStack headset - $110
Avenir Track Crankset - $250
AllCity Track pedals and toe clips - $100
Avenir riser bars with Oury grips - $60
Truvativ Hussefelt stem - $50
Weinmann DP18 deep v wheelset with Bontrager tires - $250
Pista seatpost - $45
TT Trishock track saddle - $60
