View Full Version : SOLD (sort of) Ritchey Outback XL frameset

11-09-2020, 07:36 PM
I have a Ritchey Outback frame/fork/headset/through axles I plan to list next week on the NZ equivalent of eBay no reserve no buy now for NZD675- although I’m hoping it’ll fetch more. Of course.

It’s a first generation Outback in royal blue with post mount disc brake fittings. With no mudguard eyelets nor third/fourth/fifth bottle cage bosses, much less top tube or fork bag mounts it’s far more a gravel racer than bikepacking rig.

It’s in great condition with very few scratches, none through the paint, and no dents or dings at all.

Anyway, although I doubt the cost of freight to the US or other overseas destinations will make it worth considering for Paceliners (maybe USD150- to the US) I’m happy to email photos and more information if it’s just what you’re after... If so work on USD550- plus actual freight. Or very near offer...

If I’m violating some PL rule I’m unaware of in posting this please shoot the listing down in flames and I’ll apologise in full...

The red tape under the fork crown is simply to secure the edges of clear tape which has protected the underside of the crown from paint damage. Since new. Similar protection applied to both chainstays. The only apparent paint damage is two very small scratches, 2mmx1mm at most, near the rear post mount brake attachments. Neither exposes bare metal, only the undercoat.

Small scratches as referenced above, immediately below the forward post mount attachment.

After checking with NZPost (USPS equivalant), UPS and FedEx it seems cost-effective frame freight from NZ to US is a thing of the past. Call it inflation, the Covid effect, or some other factor...

I'll leave the listing up here in case there's interest from someone here who has access to better freight rates and/or another means of getting the frame across the water. Accepting too that not all Paceliners are US-based...

Incidentally, these frames are listed new on Ritchey's close out site for a bit over USD1100- at present.

Reserve reached almost immediately after listing on NZ's eBay equivalent.

Will continue with Paceline for smaller items freightable by weight not volume...
