Touring bike + ALL gear 450$
Posted July 16th, 2013 - 8:40 am by from Clichy, France (Permalink)
My bicycle journey is over! And I am soon leaving Australia!
So I’m selling my lovely upgraded touring bike with absolutely ALL its accessories!!
I cycled 18.000 km in 9 countries with this bicycle so it’s a reliable travel companion!

Let’s begin with honesty between adventurers!
The whole bicyle is in good condition but 2 parts require a bit of attention:
1 – The seat: The cushioning is good, but it’s not waterproof anymore. So you have to keep in away from the rain.
2 – The fenders: they still do a good job. But their attach is broken and they might move if you are a bit brutal with them.

Having said that, let’s start the list!


THE BIKE:

The Bicycle is an Urban X-press from KHS made of a strong steel for a more than decent 12 kilos.
The size is Medium.

Upgrades of the bike:
1 - front and rear fenders
2 - front and rear panniers
3 - handlebar extensions
4 - Shimano metal hybrid pedal SM-SH55: one side with pedal clip, the other one regular pedal.
(I also sell the shoes in very good condition for an extra 50$ if you are interested, UE size:43, US:9)
5 - Mountain Gears. So lots of low gears to climb mountains.
6 - Tyres: Hybrid 70 PSI
7 - Wheels: 700x28-35, flat spokes.
The great thing about this part is that you DO NOT need to take the tire apart to change a broken spoke. And you DO NOT need to take off the cassette either. Just unscrew the broken spoke to take it off, screw a new one instead. That’s it, repair done! Essential in remote places! (spare spokes are inculded in the package)

THE EQUIPMENT:

Already INCLUDED in the price:
1 - 4 touring bags: 2 front (30 L) and 2 rear bags (50 L)
2 - Bike computer
3 – U-Lock Kriptonite
4 – 3 inner tubes
5 – Small metal pump up to 120 PSI
6 - Helmet
7 – spare spokes
8 – 2 brake cables
9 – allen key
10 – chain breaker
11 – spare racing cassette

The whole package is 450$. (extra 50$ if you buy the shoes)
The bicyle is to be picked up anywhere in the CBD.

All the best on your bicycle adventure! ;)
