WTB: Bicycle

Zach BoringZach Boring Member, TRS/Baucco Team Member
Help a man achieve his dream of rolling down the street on two wheels. I am bike-less. This depresses me. I'm too fat and lazy to justify a nice bike, but I would still like to not buy a Walmart bicycle. If you are upgrading or down grading, have I got a deal for you.

Instead of the Ventum 110% rule, I'll give you 90% of the value of your bike (joking, I'll pay a fair price). But here is what I need:

56-58 frame
road bike most preferred
don't care about components
not folded in half
can hold 230 pounds of pure sexy (God (or whoever you pray to) bless my wife)

aluminum is perfectly ok. Triple points if it is a specialized allez or caad 10-12

Willing to accept sponsorship offers

    The cheap shot first:

    "Does the 230 include a child and bike seat, or are you perhaps looking for a tandem?"

    Now to help, sort of:

    I bought a CAAD 10 black Inc with Ui2, and two extra Conti GP tires for under $2k Canadian last year. Based on my years riding per dollar spent, I will be buried with this bike so it's not for sale. Sorry. It was a screaming deal because no one here understood what it was, so you might find a similar deal in aluminum.

    @Martin Ideal situation is a caad12 or specialized allez sprint. cheap enough to not get a divorce, nice enough to do whatever I want on for the foreseeable future.

    And I'm all for cheap shots. I'm disgusted. I've hiked like crazy the last week way beyond my comfort zone to start "easy" (jealousy pictures attached from a 5 hour 10 miler I did in boulder this week)

    I'll add my testimonial: I bought a gently used Allez E5 3 years ago and slowly upgraded & replaced parts to my liking. I too will be buried with this thing. It was cheap for how it performs, it sacrifices nothing.
    You'll be happy with either bike.

    @Zach Boring I've been 230 before. I may be again. The great thing about this life is that it's constantly changing based on the choices we make. Ok, enough cornball BS. Glad you are off your (fluffy) ass. Get a bike. Ride bunches. Love your life. xoxo

    It's south boulder peak.

    Can see all the different options to get there here:

    https://bouldercolorado.gov/osmp/trails-and-maps

    Just look at the interactive map and choose a rout.

    I went up the shadow canyon way around devils thumb and made the trek over to bear peak as well. That canyon is where pretty much all the vertical is.

    There are a ton of great options in that area. There is a section that is closed due to flooding from a few years ago, but otherwise all trails were open (warnings not to go off trail up canyon as there is some nesting going on until the end of may, but you can still use the trail)

    I also did the 1st and 2nd flatiron hike and that was good too. Much shorter

    But be warned, I did see This guy 100 yards off the trail one day. Just be alert. This guy/girl didn't bother me as I'm sure the animals are pretty used to humans coming through, but you never know. Never know if there a cubs being protected either. @maggieru

    @Zach Boring try this one out - might want to rent before buying, it requires more parking space and riding buddies than most bikes.

    @Zach Boring I still have that Litespeed frame (ML). If you want to build it up I will donate it to the cause.

    Tremendous and gracious offer but the components alone are probably more than I would want to spend. Plus I couldnt let you give it to me.
