    FS: 56cm Van Dessel WTF Steel Gravel Bike, Mint

    Turns out gravel riding isn't for me... or more specifically, my back and my arthritic shoulders. So up for sale is my lightly-used steel Van Dessel Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF) gravel bike, size 56cm. I'm 5'11" and it fits great- the seatpost height I have set can be seen in the pictures, so there's plenty of adjustability in both directions.

    The bike is in mint condition. There's a little cable rub around the headtube, but otherwise it looks pretty new. Wheels have a couple of small nicks in them, but nothing serious. Shifters are smooth, brakes work great, and the tires have plenty of tread left. As-is, the bike weighs around 23 lbs. You could drop 2.5 lbs by putting a carbon fork on this thing... but you probably won't want to.

    SOLD SOLD SOLD. I will ship within the US, but I'd prefer a local sale if possible. PM if interested.

    Sick looking bike. That made someone happy.
    formerly an ambassador for a few others, but the ski industry is... interesting.
    Fukt: a very small amount of snow.
