My Principia RCS6 Road Bike - Asking £250 - sold

Iphone makes it look a bit pinky but it's pillar box red!

size is 54cm (but compact geo - 53cm actual TT, 54 effective) Very lightweight - Aluminium exotica - circa 2004

Principia used to be the best of the best for Alu frames - Hand made in Denmark with tubes slotted together before welding to increase stiffness. Full carbon fork & carbon steerer (uncut)

old CRC page here - (check the RRP!)

This bike has been my daily commute bike. It has a few small marks - decals chipped here and there. Sadly, it has a little dent in the top tube when it fell (lightly) against the corner of a wall in my living room. Headset could do with new bearings soon.

It had new brakes / new cassette / new chain about 200 miles back.

Some nice kit on it - a Dura Ace post, dura ace shifters, Concor Saddle, 105 chainset, Fulcrum 5 wheels, Salsa seatpost clamp, cane creek levers, Vredestein race tyres. Tiagra mech. Spare Mech Hanger included.

It is a very light bike! Lighter than plenty of carbon jobbies I've picked up in shops. It is also now sold.
