Santana Rio with S&S Couplers
Date: September 29 Ad ID: BWKEP
For sale is a size small Santana Rio with S&S Couplers and 26" wheels. The S&S Couplers allow the bike to be disassembled for shipping.
The bike was built in about the year 2000. There are paint chips and a few minor dents here and there. It's well maintained, but it has been loved... a lot. It looks great and rides even better. It's just not "new" anymore.
The bike has many upgrades. Added in the last year:
- Gates timing belt drive
- New Velocity Cliffhanger rims, front and back
- New Hadley rear hub
- Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires
- New Chris King headset
- 9 Speed Microshift indexed thumbshifters (Best "downgrade" ever. Love them!)
- New cassette and chainrings
- New rear chain
- New Deore rear derailleur
- New cables and housing
- New Deore brake levers and calipers front and rear
- New front bars and stem
- New SKS Longboard fenders
- New Salsa skewers front and rear
- Salsa Liplock seat collars
- Thompson front seatpost
- Suspension rear seatpost
- XTR front derailleur
- Santana Airliner Safecase included!!
- S&S Coupler wrench included of course
What's pictured but not included in this sale:
- Brooks and Terry saddles (I will put some takeoff saddles on it, but you will probably want to provide your own)
- Racktime rear rack (but Topeak MTX rack will be included if desired)
- Bells and front Ortlieb handlebar mount
- Crank Bros pedals
- Cell phone mount
- My garage :-)
Price: $1,500 firm. The wheels are probably worth $500 alone... but it's a 20 year old bike.
I'm happy to pack it and prepare it for shipping in the Santana Case for pickup paid for and arranged by the buyer. Or local pickup in Michigan (we like fun road trips too...within reason).
