Looks nice. Wish I have more flexibility nowadays. Could have pass by and check it out on my commute home :)

The paint looks like an Argon 18 bike.

It’s been listed for a few weeks. The deal breaker for me is someone else’s name on top tube. If I’m spending that much on used bike I want my name there! Could cover it with a sticker or ignore, but it would drive me crazy.

$1800 seems pretty normal for an Axiom.

It previously sold for around $700 because it has had an absurd amount of miles on it.

it looks like it may have clearance for 25mm, maybe 27mm tires and rim brakes...I'm sure it's a nice riding bike but everyone wants big tires and disc brakes...

$700 would be a great deal. How did you find this information?

You should see my 240mm ht, 56cm Mosaic.

Interesting, you level that top tube and you end up like with 3 cm of seat post, clearly was custom made as the rider wanted, which makes it a hard to sell item, add that the wrong time of the year and that sram electronic is on sale... well... Im not into 7s so I really cant tell if they worth a lot or not but will be a hard sale at that price point IMO or that would had been already gone.

CL is super slow in the last few months.

On a road bike?! Clearance for 25-27mm should be fine. I think a more limiting factor is this bike has 10 speed gearing. Yes, it is Sram Red and very light, but with everything at 11 speed and now headed to 12, the 10 speed gearing may turn off some buyers.

Of course, YMMV!

Good Luck?!

I’ve sold a bunch of bikes from my collection recently and can tell you for sure there is a nice market for rim brakes and thin tires if you have a nice high quality bike. From my experience selling my old used titanium bikes, the custom paint and someone else’s name on top tube are going to make this a tough sale way more than the tire width/brake issues. My brushed titanium bikes sold much faster than the painted ones. Most of my bikes had custom geometry and very few people seemed to care about this (this forum is different, everyone here wants all the details!). I’ve owned this model and would say if you take paint / name off top tube it maybe a decent deal if components have a lot of life.
