Seller notes: Built by me for me as my commuter but I no longer ride to work and this bike isn't getting the use it deserves.
Type: Cyclocross Bike







  • the bike as pictured (minus lights & pedals)
Built by me on a used but excellent condition Trek XO1 Cyclocross frame in matt black.  Comes with quality Shimano 105 shifters (2 x 10), 105 front mech, Tiagra rear mech, Gloria Prowheel twin chainset (48T & 34T) with Shimano square taper BB. I only finished building this a couple of months ago as my commuter but work circs have changed and I no longer need it (I have other bikes too).  I have travelled no more than 200 miles on it since the build and it is as the pictures (taken just after I finished building it), though obviously a little dirtier now (I will leave for you to wipe it over).  It rides great and it surprisingly fast IMHO.

Loads of pictures so you can see what you are getting.  This is a nice bike using good quality components and I will be sorry to see it go.

Size is medium (53cm seat tube top to centre of BB and 53cm centre of seat tube to centre of steerer [approx.]).

New parts used in the build were:
  • Shimano 105 front mech
  • Shimano BB
  • Shimano 10 speed cassette (Tiagra - I think)
  • Trek gear hanger and bolt (cost a fortune!!)
  • front cable hanger
  • Tektro rear cable hanger / seat clamp
  • Tektro CR720 cantilever brakes (front and back)
  • cross-top brake levers (very useful)
  • alloy seat-post
  • Charge Spoon saddle in red (if you don't want the saddle I will remove and refund £15 as I quite like it!)
  • Eddy Merckx stem
  • all new cables (inner and outer)
  • inline gear adjuster (for fine tuning front mech on the fly)
  • new GRL Cruz puncture-resist tyres (and inner tubes)
  • full-length mudguards
  • red wire bottle cages (basic but do the job)
The pictures show the original canti's I used on the build but I changed them to the (much better) Tektro's last month (see last two pictures).

All other components were used but lightly.

I will be keeping the pedals, lights & computer mount they are NOT included.  I WILL include a for free pair of lightly used Maxxis Raze cyclocross tyres for if you want to venture off road (you will need to remove the mudguards if you want to use these tyres as the clearance is not enough to clear the knobbles on these tyres).

I have included offers, but I won't be considering much less than the asking price.  Built on a quality Trek frame which is quite rare now and I doubt you'll find another easily.

Collection is MUCH preferred and ENCOURAGED so you can see the bike and make sure it is what you want.  I personally would never buy a used bike sight unseen but if you want to arrange your own courier you can at your own risk (I have always found Paisley Freight to be reliable).  No returns if you do this!

Please see my feedback for any reassurance you might need.
