Softride Solo 700C White Used Road Racing Bike Aluminum Frame Carbon Fiber Beam for sale
Up for sale today is my very unique bike: Softride Solo. The unique frame design was intended to reduce aerodynamic drag. As such, the bikes were very popular amongst time trialists. However theres another reason for this: the frames were banned by the UCI for not adhering to frame standards. Eventually, Softride as company stopped producing bikes and only made car racks. The frame is made of aluminum while the beam, the part you sit on, is constructed of pieces of carbon fiber mounted to steel rod with strong epoxy. The result is surprisingly comfortable and adjustable frame. The beam can be moved up and down and the seat can slide forwards and backwards. This frame was owned by at least one person before me. Unfortunately he used it for commuting and as result the frame isn't in the greatest shape detail wise. Lots of dirt and scratches everywhere. The parts on it are less than 150 miles old. The frame was given to me completely bare and built it from the ground up. Every part that it came with to me was replaced.
