SOLD -- DeSalvo 10th Anniversary -- SOLD

SOLD -- Because it's not being ridden, and because its front end is just a bit too tall for me, I'm putting my DeSalvo 10th Anniversary frame with painted-to-match Edge 2.0 fork up for sale. This is a truly wonderful bike: light, quick, stable, beautiful. Moreover, its builder, Mike DeSalvo, is hugely talented and a great person.

I bought this bike from a forumite about a year ago (original ad here). It's my understanding that the original owner is a bit taller and a bit heavier than me. Still, the bike has worked very well for me, and I'm right around 6' and weigh approximately 175. The bike is stiff, to be sure, but it doesn't ever beat me up.

Details:

effective top tube = 56.5 cm c-c
seat tube = 54.5 cm c-c
slope = 5 degrees
head tube = 17.7 cm
head and seat angles = 73.5 degrees
chainstays = 41 cm
bottom bracket drop = 8 cm
setback = 21 cm
wheelbase = 99 cm
saddle height pictured = 76.1 cm from the center of the bb to the saddle's top
drop pictured = about 3.5 cm

Condition = outstanding. I don't believe there are any paint chips in the frame; there are certainly no dings or dents that I've found. There is some minor rub under the fork crown, but it's entirely out of sight. The original owner put a bit more than 2,000 miles on the bike. I've put another 2,500ish on top of that. I have a bunch of bikes, as people know, and while this one was for a time my daily rider, it didn't ever travel with me or go out in inclement weather.

Price: I'd like $1,050/obo shipped for the f/f/hs. If you want to talk about the complete bike, we can do that. We can also talk about bits and pieces. Regardless, please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for looking. -- SOLD



I donít have a garage, Iím afraid, so I used a fence. Saddle height, as shown, is 76 cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the to of the saddle.



Curvy stays.



Head badge.



Itís special.



Made in Oregon.



Itís a DeSalvo. In case you missed it.



Lots of room for 25s (Michelin PR3s, which are balloons). 28s? I donít know.



Again, thereís more than enough room for a 25 (Michelin PR3) up front.



Build sheet that I canít get sized right. Please let me know if youíd like me to send this to you via e-mail.



Full frontal!

I should have gone for one of these when Mike first offered them. Too bad this one is too small.

Ari, if you're parting out, I'd be willing to take those shifters off your hands.

Unless you've already got those bits in line for another project...

Unless I sell the bike complete, I'll almost certainly hold onto the shifters. The wheels, though, are probably going no matter what, along with some other bits and pieces.

I totally agree. Alas, it doesn't fit me perfectly, so it's not getting ridden. And bikes that don't get ridden have to go!

Trying to talk my son into it. His wife bought Speedy Chix 10th Anniv last Fall, this would be sweet for him.

Ari, what an amazing frame!

Looks like comfortable geometry. If it were 6-7cm bigger and had fender/rack mounts I'd be all in.

It's a shame that doesn't fit Ari. That may be my favorite of the bikes you have.
