Specialized 29er on Craigslist

Here is a geared 29er from Specialized that I found on the Eastern Connecticut section of Craigslist. It's set up for road duty. Looks like it has a Rock Shox Tora fork on it.

I found the bike on the Specialized website. The MSRP is $1050 so this is a good price when you are getting another set of tires for free.

Nice looking bike. Here are the specs:

  • Fully butted M4 manipulated alloy frame, butted ORE DT, single speed compatible 2 piece forged adjustable dropouts, disc only
  • RockShox Tora 318 SL fork, for 29" wheel, 80mm travel, Mag lower, Solo air spring, alloy steerer, 32mm Cro-Mo stanchions, rebound adjust w/ lockout and preload adjust
  • Avid BB5, mechanical disc brakes, 6" G2 Clean Sweep rotors
  • Shimano FC-M442-8 crankset, Octalink Spline, 9-speed
  • Specialized Fast Trak tires, 29x2.0", 60TPI, aramid bead
  • The only drawbacks are probably the fork, the brakes and the thin tires. In it's current configuration, this would make a great commuter if the front fork had a lock out.
