When he said that "Virtually all the components to this bike are made out of Carbon Fiber....it features an autoclaved carbon fiber composite frame....and the bike is extremely light because of the majority of the key components being unmistakably made of carbon.", what he meant was wheels, cranks, seatpost and bar ends are carbon everything else is alloy. Everybody knows that while bar ends are a key component the frame is not. Unmistakably.

I purchased this bike around 2001 for around $10,000.00 it is absolutely stunning and in full working order. Virtually all the components to this bike are made out of Carbon Fiber.

I read that and it's even without my specs I can see it's an ali frame.

good luck with the sale, but one question

why spend 10k on something that has no cycling heritage, doesn't reflect their awesome engineering on the cars, and looks nowt special, IMHO

but genuinely, good luck selling it dude :D

Was a bit hasty.....in listing the bike... At the end of the day this Bike will obviously interest the right person....

Nice to receive so much constructive critique.

Oooh.... :wink:
