Raleigh RX2.0 59cm CX Bike
Raleigh RX2.0 aluminum 59cm disc brake equipped cyclocross bike. The bike was purchased new in November 2012 and used as a backup pit bike during the cyclocross race season. It saw very little action at all. It has a wide gear ratio drive-train making it perfect for racing cyclocross, fully fendered spring training or long rides on rolling dirt roads like the D2R2 or road riding when mounted with slick tires.
The shifters and rear derailleur were upgraded from the stock Shimano 105 to new SRAM Rival double tap and the cables and housing were upgraded to sealed models. The stock seatpost was upgraded to an Easton EA70 setback. The wheels, Vittoria folding XG Pro race tires, saddle and Avid BB5 disc brakes are stock and brand new, never used. The FSA Gossamer BB30 46/36 crankset with Shimano 105 11-28 10 speed cassette gives a great range for hilly dirt road riding or cyclocross racing. Entire bike is in very good shape. With slick tires, which I would be happy to include a pair of, it is even a fine road bike.
The bike has mounts for fenders/racks as well and when paired with the disc brakes, makes a wonderful foul weather training bike or commuter as well.
