  I spoke with the construction crew today. They said bikes will still be able to continue riding through even though it will be closed to cars.

Great road feel and little noise!
Category: Technical

I no longer need my lightly used Kurt Kinetic Road Machine Trainer. Of all the trainers and rollers I used over the decades, it is the one with the best road feel (20 mph feels like 20 mph on the road), and it is also very quiet.

In addition, a small accessory will turn the unit into a smart trainer rivaling those costing many times its price.

I bought the unit new for $369 and would like to get $125 for it. It is black rather than the current green. The current model has a few cosmetic changes, but "The resistance unit was unchanged, which is fine because it’s stellar." (http://www.bikerumor.com/2015/02/09/rev … -trainer/)

I boxed it back up when I bought a new electronic trainer two years ago. It's a shame to just keep it sitting around.

BikeRumor.com says of the unit:
"Overall, the trainer is great, and it’s a fraction of the cost of a connected trainer and doesn’t require a wall plug to get all the features. The price is on high end of competing fluid trainers, but it comes with a larger stock flywheel than most, seemed a bit quieter than others I’ve tested and a good brand history to back it up. It has a road-like feel and has held up to multiple users over the past 8 months with nary a scratch on it. I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a premium unit that’s quiet, stable and durable."

Good condition Campy Eurus G3 wheelset (9/10-speed Shimano hub)
Category: Technical

I did a lot of research before buying these wheels, and what I ended up finding as the consensus was that they were the lightest strong wheels and the strongest light wheels available. While they have some miles on them (under a 150-pound rider), they are in good shape. I had them professionally serviced annually.

The wheels have been sitting unused since I got my latest bike almost three years ago, so I thought I should let someone else enjoy them. They retailed for $1,000; I would like to get $395 for them.

Will reschedule. Sorry for late notice.

Anyone have one?
Category: Social

I've been trying to do the metric Civil War Century ride the last few years but have missed out on registration. So I thought I'd do it on my own. Unfortunately, the cue sheet does not seem to be in the library. Anyone have a copy to share? Thanks.

Great condition w/o base
Category: Technical

I have a very nice condition Park repair stand that I would like to find a new home for. Retail on current model is $300+ without the heavy metal base; asking $150/obo. This is a slightly older version of the stand that is found in every serious bike repair shop, with the blue platic clamp covers. Can be bolted to a floor with a base plate that costs about $50 or you can buy the heavy base or have one made from steel plate. Photos available for serious lookers. Email, text or call (443-519-9676).

Great deals on a comfy saddle and fast wheelset
Category: Technical

I have a Terry men's Fly saddle that I bought a few years ago, slapped on a bike, rode a couple of times on the trainer, and have not used since. I'd rather someone else get to enjoy it. Quite possibly THE most comfortable saddle for long rides (I have two more on other bikes I have been riding for !5 years+). Light weight, leather cover, titanium rails and virtually indestructible. Sells for $169 new; first $100 takes it. http://www.terrybicycles.com/Saddles/Me … Gel-Saddle

I also have a BRAND NEW pair of wheels for sale -- never been ridden. The Mavic Cosmic Elite wheelset is strong, aero and reasonably lightweight (1,770 grams). As the manufacturer notes: "Cosmic Elite has been designed for high speed addicts. High elliptical flanges coupled with high efficiency hubs and bearings quality, this is the wheel of choice for all speed enthusiasts, road racers and triathletes." More info at http://www.mavic.com/en/product/wheels/ … mic-Elite.

The renowned Continental Grand Prix is easily the most respected road clincher in cycling. Known for its extremely long wear, the Grand Prix is a staple training and racing tire for all cyclists, from weekend warriors to world champions.

This updated version features the Black Chili rubber compound for lower rolling resistance, plus even even better durability and grip. Excellent puncture protection is ensured by Continental's proven Poly-X breaker, a lightweight layer directly beneath the tread.

New retail for wheels, tires and tubes is $590. First $400 takes the set.
