Buy: Orbea Ordu TT or Cervelo TT or Race Wheels

I’m actually finally selling my Orbea Time Trial bike, which has totally been sitting in my living room for years now. I was going to sell it last year. And, then, I decided to do triathlon again. I rode it like six or seven more times as part of my “comeback.” Then, I got a new bike. And, it’s simply sat there for months.

At least it had a friend: Steve’s Cervelo TT.

And, even though we need the money and we do NOT need the bikes (or the race wheels), both of us have been way too busy to do anything about that. (But, if you think about it on an economic level, it would have probably have been a better use of my time to work on selling the bikes, in terms of the money per hour, than to actually slave away at work.) Anyway, I finally, finally posted the bikes and wheels for sale today. So. Snatch that shit up.

2011 Orbea Ordu XS

I bought this Ordu in March 2011 and raced it until September 2011. I then decided to quit triathlon, but couldn’t bring myself to get rid of my bike. It sat in my living room and rode it six or seven times in 2013. I’m finally selling it. It has just around 900 miles on it, no crashes. There are a few minor nicks of the paint around the back wheel drop, but no scratches or any damage to the bike. (It’d be hard to damage while it sits in the living room.)

I bought it for around $3,400. Asking $1,700 without the wheels – or best offer. I have two sets of race wheels I can also sell — either for $1,000 (details at bottom).

Dura Ace Cervelo P2 SL – 51cm

It’s a few years old at this point, but Cervelo was so far ahead on the TT bike tech front that it stacks up well against all but the newest models of many of competing companies. Plus the bike is about as adjustable as they come, so you can put yourself into a super aero position. $950, without wheels. Minor cosmetic scuffs on bar tape and front derailleur, otherwise the bike is in very good condition.

Buy My Orbea Ordu TT Bike

I need to sell my Orbea Ordu TT bike. I mean really I should have sold it when I stopped riding it at the end of 2011, but I held onto it out of hope/sentimental value. What if somehow I really needed a high-end time trial bike? What if, like tomorrow, someone said, Kelly, you have to race Oceanside in two weeks and you have to do it fast or you won’t get that book contract/job/fame and fortune? Well, wouldn’t I feel stupid then if I didn’t have a TT bike. (Also, I really liked it, because it actually fit — unlike my last terrible TT bike that screwed up my leg — so I was scared if I got rid of it I’d never find another bike I liked.)

But, obviously, that never actually happened and instead I rode it three times from the end of September 2011 to now. Three times. It still has cork brake pads on it from the race I did last July.

Now, I need to sell it, because selling it is sort of my master plan for paying taxes.

So, I posted it on Slowtwitch and I guess I’ll post on Craiglist too, then maybe eBay. Asking for $1800. It was a $3400 bike or something around that when I got it two years ago.

So nice.
So nice.
