You are looking at a Coconino built for me by Steve Garro in 2008 - https://coconinocycles.blogspot.com/.

$2000 OBO

Located in Colorado Springs. Buyer pays shipping

If the buyer wants a fresh paint job, Dark Matter Finishing is local to me and I can handle logistics for a respray. I’m on the fence about parting with the frame bag - money talks.

Ridden and raced regularly from 2008 - 2014 and ridden sparingly since then.

Size - Let’s call it a large. I’m 6’ tall with a 34” inseam.

Geo - High and tight late aughts XC race. Going from memory we based this on the V2 Niner One 9 I was riding at the time. ST is around 73-74 degrees and HT is 71-72.

Setup - Optimized for 80mm fork at the time. It rides well with 100mm fork, though most of the time it has been on the rigid fork.

Here’s a blog post where I documented the various setups I’ve run since new. https://gyreandgimbal.blogspot.com/2017/01/canvas-updated.html

Condition: Frame has been treated with Weigle’s Frame Saver every few years. No dents or dings. All the components have a fair few miles on them. Wheel bearings roll smooth and have been replaced a couple of times. Front rim is the original, rear was replaced a few years back. The wheels are fairly true. Powder coat has held up well.

Frame Repairs: About a year in the drive side side drop out component developed a micro crack and was repaired and reinforced by the builder. This was a common fault with the PMW sliders with windows where disc brake forces transferred to drive side would lead to cracks over time. PMW eventually stopped making these as a result. https://www.mtbr.com/threads/cracked-paragon-sliders.668654/

Soap dish rear derailleur cable routing on the seat stays was added in 2014. I never got around to getting a new powder coat and just hit those areas up with a wire brush when needed.
