Classifieds / 700 x 32 mm Continental Gatorskin Hardshell Tires
« on: January 15, 2013, 12:29:52 pm »
I bought two sets of Continental Gator Hardshell tires in 700/32 mm with the intention of using them for a ride this summer. I am trying to set up my touring rig as light weight as possible, I think I have the gear weight down to about 27 lbs. The Gator Hardshells are fast on the flats and offer lots of protection, but they dont give the lively feel that the Marathon Supremes have.
I just got the tires, I took a short ride with one set, the other I just mounted and took off. Both sets are as new. I really like my standard Gatorskin tires which are slightly lighter and give a bit more lively feel than the Hardshells.

I would think the Gator Hardshells would be a great tire for folks that are not into lightweight, performance touring, but want a tire that gives great flat protection. I have two pairs of the tires and am selling them for 50.00 a pair. If you want to try a pair, this is a cheap way to give it a try. BTW, these normally sell for 70.00 each, so its a pretty good deal to give them a try,


Cheers,

Ed

Classifieds / Big Agnus UL2 Tent For Sale - Tent Has Sold
« on: October 09, 2012, 04:31:53 pm »
Hi all, I did my first transam last summer and took the Big Agnus UL2 tent and loved it. At 2 lbs 10 oz it is amazingly light and packs very small. It works very well as a 1 person tent with room for all your gear. IMO, it works, but would be a tight fit for two with gear. I have become a weight fanatic and am looking to get my touring weight down below 30 lbs for my ride this comming summer.

So I am selling the the UL2 and buying a UL2 Platinum which is the same tent but with lighter materials making it 7 oz lighter, silly, I know, but I really like the design and size of these tents. They setup very quickly and easily. The tent is less than a year old and in excellent condition, it was gently used and has no tears, wear spots or anything like that. I paid 370.00 for the tent and am selling it for 200.00 delivered in the lower 48 states. Here are some stats from the website:

Three season, free standing, ultralight backpacking tent
DAC Featherlite NSL pole system with press fit connectors and lightweight hubs - featuring eco-friendly anodizing
All DAC poles made from TH72M aluminum: the latest technology in lightweight tent poles featuring improved durability

Classifieds / FS: 56 cm Surly LHT, Fast Bike, 1,400.00
« on: August 11, 2012, 01:51:56 pm »
I have a 2012 Surly LHT in blue 56cm frame that is 8 months old and in excellent condition. I had Bikes Unlimited in Lynchburg, VA build up the bike for a transam ride that I did this summer with the bike, the bike performed flawlessly. I am quite a fanatic about taking care of the bike, for example, I cleaned the chain daily on my transam ride. The bike really looks like new. It has new brake pads, almost new Continential Gaterskin tires and a new chain.

I had it built up as tricked out performance touring machine as you can see from the parts lists. It weighs in at just under 25 lbs and is very fast. The bike cost me 2,600.00 and I am selling it for 1,400.00 plus shipping, less pedals and bottle cages (I will stick them on the new frame). I am only selling it because I have a long torso and short legs and just ordered a custom CoMotion Frameset. We live in Central Virginia. Here is a link to my transam ride this summer with the bike: http://people.hsc.edu/faculty-staff/edevlin/edsweb01/Personal/cycling/cycling.htm , I have more photos of the bike if needed.

Here is the parts listing:

Shimano Dura Ace bar end shifters
Shimano R600 brake levers
Avid Digit 7 brakes with Problem Solvers brake modulators (used on tandems with V-brakes), this thing can stop!
Shimano XT front derailler
Shimano XT rear derailler
Shimano 9-speed chain
Shimano XT 9-speed cassette 11-34
Shimano XT triple crankset 44-32-22 (this was perfect gearing for the transam)
Profile Designs Stem
Velocity Dyad rims with Shimano XT hubsets, 36 DT stainles 14 gauge spokes. These are amazing wheels, the guys at the shop did an epic job building them up, they are true as the day they were made.
Chris King Headset
Brooks Saddle (only 1,000 miles on the Brooks, it is just broken in)
