Paul built this for me in 2016. Long story short: I moved, the bike became redundant with my old IF, and so the bike only has 100 miles on it (Strava verified!). Selling it to fund a burlier gravel machine that can clear bigger tires. This is a faster gravel/cross bike that would also work great as a winter road bike with fenders.

Specced light weight tubing. Matching steel fork. Fender braze-ons. Braze-ons for a front der if you want that. Team color and graphics. Bike is gorgeous.

Clears these 700 x 38, maybe more.

Bike rides amazing.

SRAM Force brifters, brakes and cranks, Rival rear der
King hs
Stans wheels
Ritchey bard/stem
Thomson post

Never cut the fork all the way down.

Paul's cell phone pic attached. Basically it's a "56"

Here's the numbers from Paul: seat tube 546 to top. Top tube 560 if measured level. Head tube 145. Fork 405 x 47 rake. Seat angle. 73 deg. 30 min. Head angle 71 deg. 30 min. Chain stay 435 . BB drop 75. Front/center 608.

I'll probably have this boxed up professionally (at my cost) to avoid any possible packing errors!

I'm ok not riding some of my vintage bikes, but I can't stomach seeing newer high quality bikes sit. It needs to be ridden and enjoyed!

Own an incredible bike by one of the world's best frame builders!


Buyer has choice of Ritchey or Thomson post and stem.

Frog pedals NOT included

Compass tires should probably be replaced because they sat with sealant for a long time. Rear tire isn't sealing well currently.

I can give you a credit of $40 on the Concor saddle if you don't want it.

Most of the specs you see in the pics are just dirt. Shoulda done a better job cleaning! But these bikes are meant to get dirty! Paint is as new/flawless.

Question <3

What is the name of the team color?

I think it's seafoam green--after Fender guitar! And that in turn I think is based on a 1956 Buick color!
