The For Sale Post

12/15/17 updated

Shipping isn't included in the below prices. I ship via BikeFlights to keep costs low, but pickup in central Ohio is also encouraged.

199x Raleigh Peak Technium, aluminum frame bonded into aluminum lugs and a steel rear triangle. Kind of an interesting, dead end technology for bike frames.

22" size, 600mm effective top tube, 180mm head tube, 430mm chainstays. 26" wheel, rim brake only.  130mm rear spacing. Normal 1-1/8" head tube and 68mm bottom bracket shell. The threads on the bottom bracket are misaligned right to left, so I had to use a threadless bottom bracket. Works fine.

In an effort to clean up my parts bin, I've built this up into a useful bike:

$150 OBO

Specialized Strongarm crank 42/32/22 with a 7 speed rear, big flat pedals:

Friction shifters will work forever:

Nashbar carbon fork is disc ready, but the V brakes are plenty strong:


Velo Orange aluminum fenders to keep you clean, fat 26" slicks to keep you comfy:

I'll include a spare disc front wheel. All you need is a front disc caliper if you want a disc up front:


  1. Hey,
    Pretty good price on the SIR. Any thoughts on how much you'd ship to Canada for ?

    1. Paul,

      Best just to contact me directly using the form on the blog. In my experience, IF I can fit it in a USPS approved box (less than 108"), it would be about $80. If not, and I have to use Fedex, maybe two or three times that.

  2. Hi Eric, I'm interested in the Carbon MTB frame and fork. I email through Craigslist.

  3. Thank God that p29 is an xl or I'd have to find a divorce lawyer. LOL. Good luck, that's a great price!

  4. I sent you a note through IBOB but if the Pardner is still for sale I'd like to buy it. I'm in Indianapolis and would drive to get it if you are in Ohio. I noticed you were at Mid Ohio. I almost went. I love Indycar and bikes.

  5. I put a ton of trail miles on a Technium, with a super light elastomer Manitou fork, Deore XT and other trick lightwieght components of the day... it was so nimble, and easy to pull air over obstacles, What a great bike memories....
