Selling my 2011 Raleigh Sp Carbon Comp 58cm
Bought it last October and only ridden from mid February through to mid August.
Only selling as purchasing a smaller bike.
Its in good condition with a couple of minor scratches (cosmetic) to the paint job and to the right shifter hood.
Full carbon frame and fork with 105 shifters and front derailleur, it has a ultegra bottom bracket and FSA chain set, and shimano 105 rear derailleur (the ultegra is upgrades on basic spec). The finishing kit is alu ITM kit, it has Shimano's RS10 wheelset, Brakeset is Tektro R740 brake set.
I have a sram apex 10 speed drive train on my road bike but need a new large 50T ring. Are chain rings from other drive train manufacturers compatible. There seem to be independents like FSA that are. The chains seem to be interchangable but I am not sure about the gear rings.
I currently use SRAM Rival crank/chainset, with no problems. I have a heel-in pedalling style (confirmed with a sports therapist) to alleviate knee pain. This means that my right shoe is not far from touching the rear mech cable alongside the chainstay when pedalling through the upstroke.
Shimano Dura Ace hubs in silver with Mavic CXP33 rims, 36 hole. Freehub takes 8,9 or 10 speed cassette.
They have been used a fair bit, the hubs are absolutely fine and run very well. The rims still have a bit of life left in them but probably need replacing soonish, depends on how much use they get I spose..
Asking £60 for the pair collected (Bristol) but willing to send but that would be an extra £10.

I'm selling a pair of Shimano RT82 SPD road shoes in size 43. I've only ridden them for about a hundred miles so they're in great condition and include all original documentation and packaging. The cleat mounting plates and waterproofing stickers are already installed, so just screw in your SPD cleats and you're good to go!
I'm selling them as my feet are slightly different sizes and the right shoe is just a bit too tight - otherwise I'd be keeping them as they're great for commuting, road riding with regular SPDs, Eggbeaters etc.
I bought some new wheels at the end of last year and I was doing some maintenance on the bike a few weeks ago and noticed that the rear wasn't spinning as freely as I'd have expected. I took it off and spun it in my hands and it still wasn't spinning so I decided to take the rear cassette off and see if I could figure out what the problem is.
After releasing the locking nut the first few cassette rings came off the hub without any trouble but then I couldn't get any more off. Whilst I haven't been to the gym recently I didn't think that my strength had abandoned me entirely so I had a good look and realised that the rings had 'bitten' through the splines on the freehub and locked itself in place.
