I’ve absolutely loved owning this bike, it’s fast, comfortable and fun to ride. It’s an aero road bike that’s great to ride.

The bike is the standard Dura Ace spec with a couple of swaps/amends: I’ve swapped out the standard Mavic wheels for some Reynold’s Solitudes as I preferred the deeper rim and I’ve swapped out the saddle for one I found more comfortable (If you’d prefer the original Selle Italia SLR XP, no problems – I still have it).

The bike has covered approximately 2,500 miles from new (2011) and has a few minor cosmetic marks appropriate to the mileage. I’ve looked after it as well as I can and have only ridden it a handful of times in the last year, hence the sale.

Retail of the bike when new was £4,100 and with the new Dura Ace, they retail for £4,800. I’m looking for £1,950 for the complete bike or £1800 for the complete bike without wheels, if you’ve got your own wheels (as I’d be happy to keep the Solitudes. I also have a set of Easton EA90 SLX with a newly replaced unridden rear rim and bearings that could be included with the bike by separate negotiation).

The spec of the bike is as follows:
56cm NeilPryde Alize frame and fork Blue/White/Black
Shimano Dura Ace 7900 STI
Shimano Dura Ace 7900 Crankset (53/39) 172.5mm
Shimano Dura Ace 7900 Bottom Bracket (BSA)
Shimano Dura Ace 7900 Brakes (front and rear)
Koolstop Salmon brakepads
Shimano Dura Ace 7900 Braze on front mech
Shimano Dura Ace 7900 Rear mech
Shimano Ultegra 6700 Chain
Shimano Ultegra 6700 Cassette 12/25 or 11/28
FSA SL-K Carbon Compact Handlebars 42cm
FSA SL-K Stem 110mm
Prologo Scratch T2.0 saddle

Gorgeous bike there. I'm not in the market right now but I am looking for an 11-28 cassette for an assault on Mont Ventoux in August. If you're willing to sell it, please let me know usage/wear/age/condition etc. and of course price and hopefully...
Thanks and good luck with the bike sale,

Thanks for the reply and for the kind comments - not looking to split .... or at least not unless there's interest in the major components.
