Giant Bowery SS / Fixie w/ Lots of Upgrades Size Large
Up for sale is my Giant Bowery single speed. It’s a great bike, and has been used very little. I have a stable of 8 bikes now, and since I never ride this one, I want to pass it along to someone who will use it. Plus, I need to make $ and room for a new rain build.
The frame is labeled as a large, which fits like a 57 or 58cm frame. It should fit anyone from 5’11" to 6’3". This bike has been well maintained, and rarely used. I have upgraded a lot of parts on this thing while I have had it as well. The bars were swapped for a lighter, stiffer, more comfortable model. The stem was swapped for a lighter stiff one. Cranks, you guessed it, lighter and stiffer. Plus I went with one that uses an external BB. I have platform pedas with straps on the bike now, and love it. It’s nice being able to jump on and go, and not have to worry about what shoes you are wearing. The post is the ever popular, super durable Thompson, and its topped with a Velo saddle with a cutout, keeping you comfy on the bike. And since I like to slow down without blowing my knees out, I upgraded the brakes to shimano 105 black front and rear with jag wire salmon colored pads that work great in the rain. The wheelset is about the only stock part(s) left on the bike. They have wide Alex 36h rims and formula hubs with sealed bearings. They hold their true FOREVER, and roll nice and smooth, all be it they are a bit heaving. But, they are neigh indestructible. The entire bike comes in at 19lbs.
The bike rides well. It’s stiff and accelerates quick. It’s geared well to get around the hills as needed. And the handling is stable but still quick enough to change your line to avoid a pothole or pedestrian. I can take cash or credit (thanks to Square) and if you have any questions or what to take a test ride let me know. I typically respond to email pretty quick.
Local pick up instead of shipping is A OK with me. I can meet up in the Portland Metro area.
