SALE!: Get A Garneau Steel Taiwan Touring Bike

I am putting this up as a favor for a friend. TiC is in no way responsible or liable for any transaction. Any and all transactions are strictly between the buyer and the seller.

I have seen this bike in action and it is a decent, capable tourer for Taiwan. Please see the information below for details.


From Dom:

I am selling my steel road bike. If you live in Taiwan and are interested, contact me...0987763144 The frame size is for an adult. I am 5'9 and it fits me well. The tires, upgraded, are new Continentals. The handlebars, stem are upgraded. The pedals are upgraded- They are regular pedals, but also have another side with clips. I have ridden this bike probably about 4ooom K in the 15 months I've had it. It is sturdy and comfortable to ride. It has been stored indoors. 16k NTD.

Weekend Update

Well... the weather kept me close to home this weekend, but I did manage to get a short ride with some hot climbing done. Dom and I did a little ride over Dadu Shan between Taichung and the coast. It was nice to try out my climbing legs to better evaluate how I am coming back from all that down time. 

The goal was to push heavier gears to about 70rpm on the climbs

The speed was there, but the recovery times were not. I guess I still need some engine work. 

Good times. 

Here is the route for a short jump over the hill with limited time. 



In other cycling news, the big one-day races are over, with my favorites in the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix. The Ardenne series also wrapped up without the heavy favorites faring terribly well. I get the feeling Radioshack, BMC and a few others are holding back before the Giro d'Italia and Tour de France. 

I did enjoy seeing Nibali make a great effort to only place second in last night's Liege-Bastogne-Liege. He showed a lot of the courage that made him a standout in the 2010 Giro. 

It is a shame that so much racing is reserved for the final few kilometers of these races.
