Is anyone interested in an older, seldom-used road bike? I hear bikes are hard to find these days. I have a medium-size 2010 Opus Allegro full carbon road bike that I only use on the trainer now - and not very often because I'm way more comfortable on a mountain bike. This winter I'm going to set up my old MTB on the trainer.
If you've been on AP for a while, you may remember "Princess", the road bike I had to buy when I unexpectedly won a free entry to the 2011 Coast to Coast race in New Zealand. We had a few good adventures together but I just don't enjoy road riding so it's been years since the bike has been outdoors. There is a trainer tire and a road tire.
Princess is a little too big for me and gave me a sore back even after a professional bike fitting - probably best for a rider 5'8" or taller. I don't know where the cut-off is to switch from Medium to Large.
I thought about keeping it as an "around the town" bike but Princess looks too nice for that - the kind of bike that might get stolen. I assume it may be difficult to get replacement parts for a bike of this age but it's in pretty good shape.
I also have a Tacx Flow trainer bought in 2012. It's not a smart trainer that connects to an app. It just shows you watts, cadence, speed - that sort of thing.
This is all free to a good home if someone wants to pick up one or both, or I could bring it along if we'll both be in the same area.
Here's a photo from Princess' early days.
