For auction is my Viking Carraro D'Ambiez 915SL 2012 Road Bike. Size XL (57cm)
This is a great entry level bike to get you started on your path into road bikes. After riding a hybrid bike I wanted to make the switch to a faster road bike and this was an excellent introduction for me, costing £599.99 from Rutland cycles.
The only reason for this sale is a friend is giving me his old bike - which would be a great upgrade - specially as I am now planning to do more longer distances and more competitive racing.
I am 6 ft and this fits me well in the saddle position you can see in the photos.
I have 2 x larger than standard cogs on the rear gearing to help me get up hills easier, these were professionally fitted.
I will include my Sigma sport BC509 (wired) trip computer in the sale.
I have upgraded the pedals to the SPD pedals which I bought for c. £30, this is also included in the sale.
The bike has recently been serviced by Evans Cycles.
Some cons: The bike is let down by dirty white handlebar grip tape, which can be changed for not much money, less than £10, and the Shimano gear shifters are scratched where the bike has been upside down like the majority of us. There are marks on the bike from usage but nothing major.
Viewing is no problem, I'm in London and very conveniently accessible by Tube.
YOU ARE BIDDING TO WIN - NOT TO VIEW OR HAGGLE.
This is for COLLECTION ONLY from a UK bidder.
