For Sale: Specialized Crux Disc CX, 56

Here is my sweet 56 Specialized Crux Disc Cross Rig, S -1 bike.  $1,900 obo.

What is S -1 you ask?

Velominati (http://www.velominati.com) Rule # 12 – The correct number of bikes to own is n+1
While the minimum number of bikes one should own is three, there correct number is n + 1, where n is the number of bikes currently owned. This equation may also be re-written as s -1, where s is the number of bikes owned that would result in separation from your partner.

Built it up and raced it last year. I am upgrading to a carbon frame and need to let it go even though I had dreams of converting it to a sweet single speed racing machine.

Cross bikes are rad! You can do about anything on them, I raced cross and ride gravel with it. But you can also take it on single-track (with zero rock gardens) if you want to. I have my 3rd best strava lap on a single-track at home with this very bike.

Anyway, frame is 1.5 years old and all components are less than a year old. I built it for racing cyclocross (and looking awesome with the white cable housing!) and have it about as light as you can get it without going full carbon everything ($$$$$). When I put my carbon tubluars on it, it’s just a shade over 17lbs. It weighed in at 19 with a cup of stans in each wheel (without pedals).

I raced last season with it. I only ride the bike in the fall/winter (cross season). It gets cleaned up and sits all spring and summer. It is used, so It does have some cosmetic scratches, etc, but it’s a very, very sound bike and will treat you well.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
