Full Carbon Race Bike by Moozes of Belgium.
This is a full custom racing bike built up with top quality components to a very high standard. The frame-set is marketed as the Mistral, and benefits from full 3K carbon weave , with 3K carbon fork with internally routed cables. It is approx 56-58cm in size with a 53cm reach top tube (center of steerer to center of seat tube). I'm approx 1.8m (just under 6ft) with an inside leg of 84cm, medium build and its very comfortable to ride. There's plenty of scope for adjustment, and I have alternative stems which I can swap over if you want a different length reach.
I bought this bike approx 3years ago to race the bike leg in Triathlons, The original builder was unable to ride it due to knee problems, so it was brand new when I bought it. The build cost was nearly £4000!!!
I have used it and trained on it for approx 18 months covering about 800miles. Its been sat in my nice clean dry garage for the last 18 months as I have a number of bikes, so this one does not get used very much these days. The bike is very stiff and responsive and flies along, climbing especially is a breeze, due to its total 7.4kg weight !!! It runs beautifully on Shimano RS80's wheels which I swapped with my Zipps after 2 rides so they have done less than 100miles, I just put them back on after storage and they look like new. The group-set as you'd expect from Shimano top of the range setup, is crisp and sharp with effortless gear changes.
The bike and its components are in excellent condition, there is a slight bit of rub on the crank arms from my shoes, and a few, very minor, scratches on the shifter hoods. You'd have to look hard, but you can hardly notice them, I like to be honest in my listings. I even fitted extra carbon cable protectors to the frame contact points to prevent the outers rubbing. It has never been crashed and was only used in he rain once when it poured down during a race I was competing in. As I used it to race, it has been maintained in tip top condition meticulously, to ensure no DNF's. It is/was washed and dried after every ride.
The list of parts is below (pedals not included). It comes with brand new Michelin Lithion 2 clincher tyres, and a brand new 10 speed 11/25 cassette.
So if you are looking for a top quality bike for the weekend runs or races this could be yours. Its comes in a deep glossy stunning colour / naked carbon weave combination, and really stands out from the crowd on the weekend training rides.
This really is a very nice bike, with a big spec, I'll be sorry to see it go, but I've got 4 other bikes, and this one is wasted just sitting in the garage. It begs to be ridden. Grab yourself a bargain.
I prefer pick up (2 miles off J43 of the M4 in South Wales), I could possible arrange some packaging to enable pick up by courier, but really do not want the risk of sending a carbon bike!!!! That's your call?

The bike company is headed up by Belgium pro racer Ludo Dierckxsens, a high level competitor during the late 90's, winning a stage of the tour in 1999. So the framsets are a nice piece of cycling engineering.
