OK it’s a sad day, but maybe you could help make it better. See I am putting Worm up for sale.
If you have been reading this blog for the past year or so, you have seen a lot of worm. You might remember him from here:
Yeah, Worm is my trusty bike from Leadville. He never failed me before or during Leadville.
After Leadville I bought a new mtb. I did that because my new bike was better suited to the kind of riding I wanted to get into. I need to sell Worm to finish paying off the new bike. So I present, for sale, Worm.
Worm’s core is a 1992 Basso Titanium Superlite frame (medium) 26’er. I was the first owner of that frame and it was first built in 2011. So really the frame 3 years old. The frame was built by Litespeed for Basso.
His drive train is a 9 speed XTR rear
and a SRAM X-9, with Shimano SLX triple cranks in the front:
Worm has XTR shifters
and a Marzocci CORSA SL (100 mm) front fork with remote lockout
The wheels are Mavic rims with Maxxis Crossmark tires. The tires are in great shape. I replaced them right before Leadville and have not ridden much on them.
Front mechanical (Avid BB7) disk brakes and rear rim break (Avid Black Ops).
Worm is ready to go.
$2200 and he is yours. (And my sad day turns to happiness, because he deserves to be ridden.)
