Time to sell my trusty Escapade!
This has been my most ridden bike since the start of lockdown, and has been built to be ultimately reliable, but also in-the-field McGyverable should the worst happen.
Mk 2 Escapade frame with sliding dropouts
Crank Bros wheels
40mm Nano tyres, running tubeless although the rear is getting a little worn now.
Gevenalle GX shifters – These allow 11 speed MTB rear shifting for wide range and robustness. These are pushing an 11 speed SLX rear end. Shimano CX cranks with a Hope narrow/wide ring.
BB7 brakes, although I’m currently running a TRP HY/RD front – both calipers included.
Upgraded Radon carbon forks, but the original steel fork included.
Sexy bar tape, although the pattern is starting to wear slightly.
SDG Bel Air saddle, Deda seatpost and stem. On-one flared bars.
No pedals included!
It’s been a wonderful bike, but with the arrival of my new Lauf I’ve run out of shed space.
Ideally collection from Cornwall, but I can post at cost if required.
Everything running as it should, although it could probably do with a full strip down and clean in the near future.
Any questions, please ask. I’ll check back here when I can, but a PM is probably more reliable.
