Used Mercier Corvus AL 2014 Road Bike


I've brought this bike with me from the U.S. I like it so much. I used it every day in NYC, and have used it every day here in Hanoi to commute to work, and once or twice a week going on longer rides north of the city. It feels great around town and feels even better out on the open road.

I need to be clear: this is a nice bike, but it is clearly USED. Right now it works well, shifts smoothly, is responsive and brakes well. It still gets looks. But it is USED and will need some TLC from time to time, as all good bikes should. Please see my individual notes below and email me with any questions.

The ONLY reason I'm selling it is I'm going on a multi-country bike tour soon and I bought a touring bike to pile my bags onto.

Specs and notes:

- Frame: Road-tuned T7 double-butted aluminum
(With two sets of bottle cage mounts, rear rack mounts and replaceable rear derailleur hanger (which was custom-replaced in 2017)
(It's a nice frame.)

- Fork: Kinesis-made Mercier StraightBlade carbon fiber 700c with 1.125 inch steerer tube

- Derailleurs: Shimano Ultegra RD6700GS Triple rear, Shimano Ultegra 6700 Triple front (All work well)
- Shifters: Shimano Ultegra 6700 STI (integrated brake and shift levers)

- Brakes: Crane Creek SCR-3 (side pulls)
(Work well, but should have an adjustment as I've not done so in a while.)
-New brake pads included, still in package

- Rims: Vuelta Corsa Pro 700c, anodized AERO Profile, doublewall, machined sidewalls with forged aluminum Vuelta hubs, with contact sealed ball bearings.
(Rims show braking wear but still good, but all spokes in the rear should be replaced as half already have with local, aftermarket models as they broke, one by one over a few years. All spokes in front are original and fine.

- Tires: The indestructible Schwalbe Marathon Plus 700 X 28c
(But ready to be changed.)

- Crankset: FSA Gossamer MegaEXO Triple 52/39/30T, 130BCD / FSA Mega EXO external bearing
(Two front chainrings replaced with Shimano replacements two months ago.)
(Crank arms shows wear after years of use while wearing regular sneakers which rubbed on the crank arms. Bottom bracket replaced last year and works great.)

- Cassette/Chain: Shimano 10 Speed 11-28T / 10 speed chain (30 gears total) (Replaced 2 months ago here in Hanoi.)

- Saddle: Black Selle Royal Respiro 5130HR with "Active Ventilation Channel"
(Decent shape, no tears. PICTURES SHOW DIFFERENT SADDLE)

- Seat post: Aftermarket carbon post w/ aluminum head.
(Seat post is stuck in position. I can't adjust it.)

- Handlebars: Ritchey Comp Biomax Ergo Aluminum 31.8mm diameter
- Stem: Ritchey Aluminum

- Pedals: Look Classic clipless (Definitely used, should be adjusted, but work well.)

Shoes included!
- Specialized BG Sport Road, black, velcro closures
(Size 10US, 9UK. Should replace cleats.)

- Size: I THINK it's 52cm (If not, then it's 54cm, max. I'm 5' 11" with long legs.)

Asking $400 (or comparable vnd)
