The For Sale Post

7/21/17 updated

Everything is OBO, shipping not included. I generally don't want to ship the FREE stuff... best to combine it with something else or pick it up in person. I could possibly deliver bikes within a few hours of Central Ohio, no charge. Let's talk.

Please use the contact form on the blog if something interests you.

2016 Rivendell Clem Smith Jr. complete bike, size 59cm. Stock build, excellent condition, in the lovely but not currently available mustard/gold color. Includes fenders.

I have the original pd brochure from Riv, can't see how to attach it here, but I can email it if you want to read it.

$895 OBO ($1500 new)

Drivetrain is the Rivendell Silver crankset 2x8:

"A tough bike to love"

Cockpit is a Nitto stem, Nitto Bosco bar...

... plastic old school grips, Microshift shifters:

 V brakes front and rear are strong and smooth:

Big Kenda tires on wide Alex rims. Multi-colored spoke nipples:

Partially lugged frame:

Kickstands are very refined, hard to give up once you've had one (again):

There are two chips on the LH chainstays were my Rockhopper fell against it:

And another pair of small chips on the drive side chainstay:

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. 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.

The overall frame is very good condition, with only a few scrapes here and there, and a bb sized dent on one seatstay.

Complete parts bin special bike as pictured, $149 + shipping.

Maybe you can see the small dent in the drive side seat stay. Complete build has Avid canti rear brakes.

Shimano Altus rear derailer, 7 speed freewheel, Specialized Strongarm 94BCD crankarm with a 34 ring. So, 1x7.  Big BMX pedals look bad, grip well.

Salsa 17* bend bar, long Easton stem, cheapie friction rear shifter, bar ends! The front and rear brake levers don't match.


Nashbar carbon fork ($160 new), uncut steerer, Deore V brakes up front.

Mismatched 26" wheels, WTB slick tires.

WTB saddle and Kalloy Uno post.

A few scrapes on the head tube, etc. It's a 25 year old mountain bike.

If you want, I can throw in this cheap front wheel. Bolt on, disc or rim brakes. With the Nashbar fork, you could make a front disc setup.

2017 Raleigh Pardner fatbike, size XL or 21". Like new condition, because it is basically new. Buy on impulse, sell at a loss. $800 MSRP, $395 OBO.

Shimano Acera 3x9 drivetrain.

Wide bar, short stem, mechnical disc brakes. All the usual stuff.

4" tires on 80mm rims.


  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!
