A sad day for DCMTB

It appears one of the other new guys for DCMTB will be a short lived teammate. Alex whose a really cool, not mention fast dude is heading back West with the wife to the sunny little town of San Fransisco, California. Aside from some of the best governing and budgeting in the country, I'm not really sure at this point what draws them there but I'm sure they'll be very happy after leaving the coolest team, not to mention coast behind.

So, what does this mean for you? Well aside from not having the opportunity to get your butt whooped by one of the most unassuming and consistent riders I know in the local race scene, it means you might have the opportunity to own the custom built and painted Kona Unit Alex rode to victory in the 3 Man Single Speed class at the 2009 12 Hours of Lodi Farms! How cool is that???

No but seriously, this bike is nice, really nice, and Alex is unloading it for a song at $600 to lighten the load for the move. If you don't know him, Alex is a freak about bike cleanliness and maintenance. This bike has been weel maintained and loved, and Alex's smooth flowing riding style and maybe 160 lb frame mean any abuse this bike has taken has been minimal.

In Alex's words:

I'm throwing the SS up on the block, so if you know anyone that wants a SS for a good price let me know. It's a 26'in bike that's been ridden hard (ie..it's got some scratches and it squeaks in spots), but for $600/obo should be a sweet ride.

Basic breakdown is as follows:

18 in Kona Unit Frame (2003'ish/True Temper Plantinum OX repainted solid white)
Pace Carbon Fork
King hubs laced to Mavic 717 rims
King Cogs (16/19)
White Bros Eno crankset
Thomson stem and post
XTR rear V-brake/Avid mech disc front (have mounts for a xtr v-brake up front as well).
Shoot him a line at apebright at gmail dot com if you're interested and I'll throw up some pictures if I can get them.
