Giant handlebars NOT AVAILABLE
Narrow size for women – about a 38 width

From a brand new Giant bike I just acquired. Took them off for wider bars because of cyclocross. These bars are so light and perfect for us with smaller frame bodies.

They fit a small hand like mine, but I already 5 pairs (eek!)
Fulcrum RED WIND clincher wheelset – $800 SOLD
Fulcrum website (newer wheel displayed but same specs): http://www.fulcrumwheels.com/en/collection/road/alucarbon/products/red-wind-xlr-dark-label
Carbon wheels with aluminum brake surface, complete with Shimano Ultegra 10-speed cassette that I added on. Raced these wheels under 10 times in my infamous race career. Vittoria Open Corsa tires. The package comes with the wheel bags and a spare Fulcrum freehub for your own cassette. I bought these in 2012 and since they were one of the expensive wheels I have ever bought you better believe I treated these things like gold. Ask me anything. Specs are not worth repeating since the website above really nails it, ya know? I’m not a specs gal, I’m a spokes gal. GET IT?

2012 Giant TCX W – $900 (Full price is $1,950) SOLD
Original link here
Story: I got hit by a car. I became afraid of cars. I decided to try cyclocross to get my confidence, strength, and smile back. Strength yes, but I have to face that I don’t quite get the hang of riding off-road. And I miss the road, a lot. So I want to buy a Giant road bike. Why? Cause Giant is awesome! But that means I need to sell this bike. I bought it in excellent condition from a friend who works at Giant in Ventura, and I am selling in excellent condition, with even better parts. Race ready, fun ready.
Deets: It’s an XS. I’m 5’4″ and it was purrrfect. The original parts are SRAM rival groupset, Kenda 700×32 tires, 36/48 chainrings, and a Giant Connect stem. I added a bigger SRAM cassette for easier climbing (from a 28 to a 32), 44 handlebars but am selling the original 38 handlebars with it, and upgraded you to TRP CX8.4 mini-v brakes (awesome!!!). Because of the bigger cassette, I upgraded to the SRAM Apex derailleur to shift smoothly. I can throw in my Crank Bros Candy pedals to sweeten the deal. And you can keep the Profile Design water bottle cage, though if you’re going to race you won’t need it.
1984 Peugeot Chambord Women’s Mixte – $500 NOT AVAILABLE
Pretty neat Peugeot verification here
Details: I bought this stunning beauty 2 years ago off craigslist. Guy kinda knew what he had but didn’t have the energy or patience to restore it. I DID. I removed every part and scrubbed it with a toothbrush to restore sheen, remove and stop rust, remove dirt and make it all pretty and working again. Original everything, except Bontrager tires, special edition (!!!) purple Brooks Colt saddle to match the Brooks purple leather bar tape on the original handlebars. Original fenders, brakes, kickstand and rack. Well, the rack is original to me when I bought it but maybe not the actual bike. Paint all original and rusting should have stopped because of my care. I upgraded the brake levers to Velo Orange, the amazeballs silver cable housing from Velo Orange, and the sweet ass pedals, also from Velo Orange. You want that rear bike light? It’s yours! The bell and drink holder not included. I also upgraded you to a bar end shifter. Oooh baby. I worked on this bad boy for 6 months to get it to the awesomeness that it is. It does break my heart to sell it, but that effing car that hit me left me a snapped road bike that is a level more important than riding this beauty to get groceries. So you benefit. And boy do you!
