This is my wife's bike. This is a reluctant sale, but here it is nonetheless...

1995 Barracuda UNLTD. The frame is custom triple butted Easton aluminum with a Yeti-style teardrop top tube. The frame has a very professional purple pearl powder coat paint job (very little orange peel) done immediately after original purchase (I'm told) and is FLAWLESS. No dents, dings or even chips. The finish is perfect. Clear decals were placed in all rub areas, so there is not even any cable rub. It has sat unused for years and I am the second owner. The original owner was a racer in Southern California that kept this around as his back up and seldom rode it.

Frame dimensions are: seat tube 15" center to top of top tube, TT 22" c-2-c, HT 4.75 ", chainstay 16.25" c-2-c, seatstay 17.5" c-2-c, stand over 29.5", BB height 12.5"

Components are a dream-team of CNC anodized parts from the era and all are almost all to be considered in off-the-shelf new condition (noted otherwise):

-extra XTR M900 derailleur for parts

-extra chainring bolts
-a small ziplock full of a bunch of other anodized pieces (barrel adjusters, spoke nipples, skewer ends, axle spacers etc.)

The bike is almost flawless. All cables and housing are perfect and are covered with cable jacket. It is 21.9 lbs as pictured. Serial number is on BB shell and is KC4110128. Not much more to say.

I could part all that stuff out for about $1600 (conservatively) on ebay, but I'd rather not do that. I'd like $1400 plus shipping. At that price I'll include my vintage Troy Lee Designs Edge Comp TL DH helmet (53-55cm), the matching purple FOX knee/shin guards, gloves and TOGA pull-on elbow pads, and a very nice pair of Vittoria Carbon Composite MTB SPD shoes in EU 41.

PM me (include email) with questions and for more high res pics, I have a ton. If no takers I'll have to part it out in 4-5 days to pay bills :(
