Ok I waffled on this before… but I am ready to sell my Bianchi Castro Valley

Commuter bike. I have used it for commuting for the last 2.5 years. So it

has the usual scratches and a rust spot here or there.

It is an 06 Castro Valley in 52cm. But it has had a ton of parts changed and

upgraded.

Ultegra Rear Der 9 spd (installed 09/2008)

Ultegra Bar con 9 spd (installed 09/2008)

Paul’s Touring Brakes (installed 08/2008)

Cane Creek Cartridge Headset (installed 03/2009)

Kona Project Two Fork (installed 03/2009)

Pitlock Locking Skewers w rebuild kit and two keys

Velo Orange Stem Mounted Bell (installed 09/2008)

Busch and Muller Lumotech IQ Fly (installed 09/2008)

I’ll include some well used crank bros’ eggbeaters if you need them. I can

also add studded Kenda Klondikes for $25 and I have panniers available if

you need them.

How does $450 sound?

Let me know joe at inotion d0t c0m

Thanks,

-Joe

Bumpy bump…

Price reduced $400.

And the build has changed slightly, I put on XTR V-brakes, avid v-brake levers, a paul’s thumbie and nitto promenade bars. I can include the original drop bars and road levers if you want them. So this means all new cables and housing as of last week or so.

Looking to ride the c & o? I can sell you a set of ortlieb panniers to go with this too.

*Shakes fist at Joe*

Why? Why didn’t you sell this a few months ago?

Man Joe, this is a hell of a deal. It doesn’t fit me and I DO NOT need another cross type bike, but damn, I bet this would go for a bunch more than $400 elsewhere.

Shouldn’t Joe be in touch with the 5’10 beginner looking for a multispeed? This is a better bike than a beginner needs, but still.

Probably too small if it’s a 52, unless the geometry is seriously weird.

I am 5’10” and it fits me. I ride a 55.5 road bike.

This is the same frame as the Volpe which is has cross geometry.

You’re tempting me badly, Joe.

Well, if this fits a 5″10er it’s a damn good deal. I’m surprised that this has sat for a month.

you can use your rivendell wax writing tablet to ensure that smooth finish.

Hipster! Quick – put a flag on it.

Hipster? Nah…I quit the clove ciggies and “life is shit” attitude way too long ago to start back up again.

I’ve got some nice white athletic socks to tuck my pants in, though, so I may shoot for “Fred”.

oh man i was way too late to look for this. BOO!

But joe I still love the kaffenback! It is my daily ride.

Also I think the n00b I am looking for a bike for wanted one slightly cheaper anyway.
