A full carbon road bike with shimano 105 groupset. It works flawlessly and weighs "nothing"!

It's a custom built, as-in I bought all the components and assembled it. I built it in 2014 but never rode it till 2 years ago when I started commuting to work with it. If you have any questions about the bike and components, I should be able to answer.

I love commuting with it because :
-It's super light so brings me to work faster than driving
-It's A LOT less work to commute with than a standard commuter bike. You will blow past commuter bikes with little effort, which than encourages you to keep biking because you think you're so fast!
-Again, it's super light and has very little resistance on the road. This means I can ride fast, often pass e-bikes and most other bikers, and I'm not actually breaking too much of a sweat.
-It's super agile so you can zip around corners and through traffic easily
-It has aluminum wheels which absorbs vibration better than carbon and won't break on you
-I rigged it out with light fenders for wet weather conditions

Fenders come with the bike, but not the pedals.

Added Value: If you purchase the bike, I can get you a discount on almost any bike parts... in case you want to change something out. This is only valid for the first week after you've bought it.

It has a few scratches and nicks, but nothing too bad. The shifters/brake levers both have scratches on them from small falls or resting the bike on walls.

A great road bike for racing too. You could make it lighter with carbon wheels, carbon stem, and carbon drop handle bars. Otherwise, it's about as light as it can get. (Yes, you could spend a fortune to save grams here and there... but then you'd be exercising less!)

Sizing is tough to gauge. You need to try it out. It's a medium and fits me well at 5' 10". My girlfriend rides it from time to time and she's 5'6" and it fits her well too with the seat down and would fit her better with a shorter stem. I doubt it would fit anyone taller than 5'11".

Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for looking
