I must sell my Vanilla team cyclocross frame set.
Should I put the damn thing up on Ebay?
Before you start sending me emails, I’ll be posting photos on my website shortly. (that probably means tomorrow)
I will tell you that is has 2 seasons of race and race travel on it. The paint is plenty dinged up, while still beautiful to my eyes, I would call the overall paint condition as fair. There are a few small dents in the top tube (not structural), and the paint has been worn through on a couple spots on the fork.
55cm top tube – actual. (55.5 effective)
53.5 seat tube – center to center
57.5 seat tube to top of seat collar
6cm of steerer showing out of the top of the headtube.
22.5cm total steerer length on the Alpha Q carbon fork.
This frame was built with True Temper S3 tubing.
Got to pay for my flight to Europe to race cross this winter.
Sacha asked that I make it very clear what I am selling. I raced the hell out of this bike for 2 seasons. Took it to Europe and packed and unpacked it dozens of times. It was my race machine. I used it as a training bike for much of last winter, it is still totally solid and I’d love to see someone else racing it super hard. A repaint is possible, I think basic paint from Coat starts at $600 (don’t quote me on that)

Feel free to ask me anymore questions and I’ll get back to you asap.
I’ve gotten inquiries about any of my used EDGE race wheels. Sorry, they are so strong and badass that I’m going to keep racing on those wheels until I damage them. Which so far, it appears the EDGE rims will never fail me.
