Beautiful small Curtlo touring bike for sale on CL in Ventura, CA

Here is a beautiful Curtlo, very small, and really nice. I own 2 Curtlos, they are great bikes. Its in Ventura, CA. Check it out, if you need a small tourer this is one sweet bike. Oh, I don't know the owner or have an interest in the bike, posting for your viewing pleasure. For some reason the pics won't load here, I've posted in the C&V under the CL thread where you can see the pics.

Custom Curtlo Touring Road bike

True Temper OX Steel frameset with a 51.5cm top tube, 41cm seat tube & 700c Wheels.
Circa 1997. Great road bike that has been on a couple of tours on the frameset. No crashes or dings to the frame.
Components have all been upgraded or replaced when worn out...Shimano XT / XTR / Dura Ace components with Topline cranks, Suntour MD Chainrings, Shimano Dura Ace 9 speed bar-end shifters with newer Shimano Dura ace 12-25 9s cassette and brand new chain, cables, and cable housing. Newer Vittoria Randonneur Cross Pro Tires 700 x 32c with only 300 miles or so on them on Mavic 36h rims are ready for all types of touring terrain.
To round out the components, there is the Velo Orange Stem with Cinelli Giro 38cm handlebars. New Deda synthetic handlebar grips with a new synthetic saddle match quite nicely. MKS pedals spin smoothly as ever (These are great platform pedals that will take clips), fenders, blackburn rack and a tail light.
- $900

Thanks for posting this. I ended up working out a good deal with him and bought it for my wife. It's a perfect fit and a quite nice bike. We are going to do San Francisco to LA this summer. It will be her first tour and now she has a much better bike for the trip.
