Bike is in great shape, ready to ride today but buyer will want to do a few things to it. Note that I have not ridden this bike since it is too small for me and I exceed the max weight. Everything works great when on the repair stand. Did not service anything that has bearings since nothing was needed there. Disassembled cranks and cassette and broke chain to give a thorough cleaning.

Full Ultegra drivetrain. 2x9, 172.5 cranks, Shimano bar end shifters on the tri-bars. 53/39 chainrings, I believe it's an 11-25 cassette. There is a spacer on the cassette body so you should be able to use a 10 speed cassette. Don't know if the shifter will shift through all 10 gears - buyer will have to investigate. Lots of life left in drivetrain, ready to use, works great. Full disclosure - one of the rear derailleur jockey wheels has a radial crack that goes all the way through. Chain runs over it with no issues but it will need replaced.

Ultegra brakesets with Dia-Compe levers. All works great. Minor rust on cable sheathing caps, cosmetic issue only. Levers are missing the caps that cover the top of each hood. Buyer can source those or just cover with black tape.

Mavic Ksyrium wheelset with Mavic Elite hubs. Great wheels, true and smooth spinning. No issues other than very minor wear/tear on graphics from normal use. These add a lot of value to the bike and will provide thousands of miles of use. Tires (one Michelin Pilot and one unbranded) are in good shape but are old. Buyer should replace these with their own, but will be fine for a test ride and initial rides.

Frame and beam are in great shape. Very minor wear due to normal use. Terry saddle is dated and would likely need replaced but is useable. Height can be adjusted on the beam, but I did not touch the bolts that hold the saddle to the clamp or the bolts on the clamp that goes around the beam.

Profile Design Peleton stem with approx 100 mm length and 5-7 degree angle. Aheadset headset. Profile Design BDC carbon fork that appears to be uncut (look at all the spacers on the stack). Unknown bullhorn bars but am assuming similar quality to everything else. Syntace tri-bars. Missing one arm pad but you would want to replace the pair anyways. Bar tape is serviceable but also should be replaced.

Cateye Astrale computer with cadence works perfectly, has a new battery installed. Yes it's dated tech, but if you don't have any bike computer then it will provide useful data for training.

Cash only - no trades, no checks, no electronic payments. Will meet in a public place for test ride and sale. I will be in Lebanon on July 27 and at Caesars Creek on July 28 if unable or unwilling to come to Harrison. Thanks for looking!!
