Posted Dec 02 2009 6:17am
For sale is a previously loved 2003 51 cm Specialized Allez Vita women's specific road bike. While it has normal signs of wear and tear for a bike that has been previously loved for 6 years, it has been cared for and tuned up as needed. It has 3 small nics on the main tube (pictured below), they are the size of nail heads, but the bento box covers it. which I'll include, if you want. This bike has been great to me and has tons of mileage left in it. It has seen me through countless rides, 2 MS150s and a dozen triathlons, without fail. :)
The bike is a dark burgundy with lighter burgundy zebra strips across the main tube. Very nice design... almost always received at least one, "that's a sexy bike!" at a ride. :) I am between 5'5" and 5'6" in height.
I will also throw in a (worn twice) pearl-white Bell Helmet and a Profile Design dual-bottle holder. I have The bike does has a Body Geometry "Dolce" WSD seat and Time style mountain bike pedals. Hubs will put them back on the bike before it is sold.
I'm only selling it because I finally stepped up to a tri-bike and need *want* to defray the cost of the purchase. I really, really love this bike, but I made a deal with "Santa" that I would let it go in order to purchase the new one.
I'm asking $450.00 with the stock wheels/tires
I'm asking $650.00 with the Rolf Vector Comp Wheels and nearly-new Continental 4000s Grand Prix Tires.
Here are the stock components as listed in Bikepedia
I also have a Shimano Ultegra Outboard Bearing Crank (bottom bracket included) $125, never used. We were going to upgrade, but then bought the new bike!
I also have a pair of Pearl Izumi Quest II MTB shoes with less than 100 miles on them. They are a size 8.5-9 (euro sizing) and have the cleats to for the Time MTB pedals that are on the bike. Will give you just the cleats for nothing if you want the bike.
