Element Six Full Carbon TT/Tri/Track Frame 1200 Gram Frame Weight, 354 Gram Full Carbon Fork Weight as was posted when I bought this frame. I have had this frame for less than a year and it has been used for less than 400 miles. I used it as a Tri/TT bike for a week and then did a half-iron triathlon. The rest was done on rides set up as a Fixed Gear/Track Bike. This frame has a few small scratches on the right hand rear chain stay typical with changing chains. There is also a small rub mark on the inside of the left hand chain stay when the wheel was aligned incorrectly, invisible when built. This is a gorgeous frame, it is very stiff yet also comfortable. When accelerating it takes off and it is truly easy to go fast on this bike. In my first triathlon ever, I averaged 22.5 miles for 56 miles in a half-iron. I have never averaged that fast for any ride of any distance before or since. This is the same frame that was ridden by Team Lotto in the 2007 Tour De France, though then it bore the name Ridley. It is also sold by Louis Garneau for 1999 on onetri.com and 2849 on teamcyclist.com though they advertise it heavier. Also included in this auction is the pictured FSA Gossamer Crankset with Mega-Exo bottom bracket and 52 tooth ring, though I also have a 42 that will be included, as well as the Bontrager light weight bottle cage and Giant Carbon top-cap and the full carbon Aero Seat post. This frame has never been crashed and was always kept inside.
This is one fun bike! If want to start racing cross or just want a cool ride for a round town this bike is perfect. It has a mix of equipment some new some old but all works nicely. It will be professionally boxed for shipment. I WILL NOT SHIP OVERSEAS PERIOD! LIST OF EQUIPMENT: Mavic cosmos wheels....used but true and never bent. FSA crankset new (ridden once) carbon fiber with the integrated spider with new BB bearings. 47-39 chainrings. Dura Ace 9 speed STI levers....oldest parts on the bike. They work fine but have been used for many miles. Dura Ace 9 speed rear derailer....very good condition. Dura Ace brazon front derailer with adaptor clamp....like the shift levers, works fine but has been down the road. Cook Bros. candy pedals....good condition
2002 Giant Rincon. Probably been ridden a dozen times. Added Specialized bar ends. Currently have less aggressive tread tires on it. Will include originals as well, more suited for dirt. Bike is in good condition with just a few minor scratches and scrapes.
