    Default FS RS CX 2012 NAHBS Bicycle atmo -

    This will be for sale after Thanksgiving weekend atmo. I made the bicycle shown here last January and it was part of my 2012 NAHBS display. I kept it under wraps since then in case I needed a backup unit for the team this fall. I have several other backups (used, from 2011) and none have been called into service. I am sure we will make it through the Natz in tact. So, this bicycle is now available.

    It's a Signature level frame but made for 'cross. It's not one of the batch-made frames I make for the RS 'Cross team every August. No compromises. Assembled with 2012 Sram Red with the exception of a Force cassette. The top of the line Zipp parts along with an Aspide saddle from SSM, the 2012 version of Cole T-24 / RICHARD SACHS wheels and Challenge Limus tubulars, a Connex chain, and some Crank Brothers Candy pedals (not in picture) are all part of the sale. Click here to see a higher res image.

    Bicycle only - no parting out.

    Perfect condition - not a mark on it.

    I am typing from the service department waiting room at the Subaru dealer and will fill in more details later when I get home.

    Send me a PM or an email (therichardsachs@gmail.com) if you are interesting.

    PS I think I mined this image from Joel Greenblatt's Flickr site. If so, I'll send him a nice gift after a sale is made.

    I might be on this like a hobo on a ham sandwich if any came up in this size.

    --- if ya look at this opportunity relative to investment & out of pocket:

    ya gona wait 7+ years, if ya do get a line-shot..
    cost of signature frame/fork today, inflation, $value relative to $value, compound interest on $'s relative to 7+ yrs..
    cost of all the premium components, gizmo's, goodies & team stuff..
    ya can ride er in the "now," not hereafter..

    i enjoy our rs sig roadie, atmo pista and other rides, but if i could only have "1" rider -- would be our/my RS team cx..
    -- a roadie with a second set of wheels/tube's, a florida mountain and/or gravel/around the lakes/through the groves of sand or just a plain-ass fun ride balls-to-the wall..

    if my size, be headed south -- hell of a roi for smiles, race'n, cross'n, road ride'n with good health thrown in at n/c..

    bwtfdik..,
