What's new

Making space in the garage (aka my bedroom)


Oct 15, 2008
Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the selling of my 2009 Wilier Izoard, size 58. Here be a slideshow on flickr:


Some of you have seen this bike. In fact, it has been stored since the group ride in Bosso I joined last February. Before that it was also stored all summer 2009 as I was out of the country from June to September. I am leaving again next month for 2-3 months in NewZealand and Australia and I just can`t keep it sitting. It is in like-new condition. It has a LOT of carbon parts. The bike was a project for me in Dec 2008 and Jan 2009. I built the bike myself, apart from the installation of the headset which was done by Velo Cycles in Seattle, Washington, where I bought the frameset. Everything was assembled to spec using a torque wrench and carbon assembly compound. The bike has less than 2000kms on it and has spent an embarrassingly large portion of its life in my bedroom. I am more interested in it going to a good home than I am in getting a lot of money out of it. It was a great project and a great ride, but I am just too obsessed with mountain biking to do this bike justice. All in the frame + parts have a list price of over a million yen, but I`m looking for much less than half that amount.
I think this is a great opportunity for someone to get an excellent bike for relatively little money. Message me and you can take it for a test ride. I live in Koto-ku, about 5km east of Tokyo station and 1km west of Arakawa, near Tozai or Shinjuku/Hanzomon subway lines.

Shimano DuraAce 7800 shifters, derailleurs, brakes, chain and bb
Control Tech carbon compact cranks
Nokon shift cables (under the tape)
Spinergy Stealth PBO clinchers, kevlar spokes, carbon medium-aero rims and
Hadley sealed bearings, Continental GP 4season tires
Syncros carbon seatpost
Easton Carbon bars
Zipp carbon stem

With the bike I`m including:
two carbon fiber bottle cages and the Topeak carbon pump, mounted to the frame.
A new box of Fisik bar tape (black)

I`m undecided on the carbon torture saddle (amazingly comfortable) and the VDO Z3 computer/heart monitor. If you`re interested we can talk about them.

Here are some websites concerning the frame and some of the components:
