54cm Kinesis Racelight - Shimano 105, Carbon Forks - £250

Looking to sell my Kinesis Racelight in very good condition as it a bit too small for me.

The bike is set up with Shimano 105 3x9 speed groupset, all in perfect working order and runs on a Shimano R550 wheelset.

The 1" carbon fork is in brilliant condition and not affected by the fork recall Kinesis issued a while back. Includes SKS mudguards and Elite Bottle cage.

The saddle pictured is not included in the sale, I can provide a suitable alternative however.

I am unsure how to price this but I think for such a good condition £300 is a very reasonable price, I am happy to entertain offers however.

Edit - Price drop to £250 - Need the bike gone before I move house!

Collection preferred from Oxfordshire area although I travel towards Wales regularly or would be willing to meet. Postage could be arranged at buyers cost.

Thanks for looking!
Joe

From the floor to the top of the saddle is 95cm, to the top of the bars (next to the stem) is 92cm.

Any other questions just ask.

Just checked and that's just a bit short of my required settings shame as it looks ideal

I'm not sure how those measurements help you make a decision. For example, if the bottom bracket height is different, then you will get a different measurement. Once sat on the bike, the height of the saddle and bars from the floor is not relevant. What is relevant is the position of saddle, bars and pedals relative to each other, not relative to floor.

I'll apologise in advance if your questions relate to a mobility problem and you are trying to establish whether you can mount the bike

And finally, I don't know the seller or have any vested interest in the bike being sold, just trying to help

Thanks Pigman, very valid points. I suppose Martin may be looking for dimensions similar to a bike he knows is a good fit, which is fair enough.

Martin I am happy to provide measurements for bottom bracket height/drop or any other information that may help.

I set my saddle at 39 1/2" from floor to top side and bars 36" and then a fine tweak if need be once i have the reach correct , hence my questions .

We all seem to set our bikes up in slightly different ways but i find using the above as guidelines then fine tune , but by far the best way is to ride it and see
