Last time trying to push my road bike here. If anyone is interested in any
of the parts please let me know as I'm looking to part it out soon.

I have a gently used Columbus Genius road bike. It's made by Columbus Tubing
(yes, the company that supplies steel tubes to just about every
framebuilder, also owned by the same company that does Cinelli). It was
painted by a professional framebuilder/paint shop here in Portland.

The size is "medium" and fits me as a 5'9" person. More info on the frame
here. It's Di2 or EPS ready.

Photos can be found here.

The build is as follows:

Columbus Genius frameset, size M/54cm
Full Campagnolo Chorus 11+ groupset (4 bolt crankset)
Thomson carbon road bars, 42cm
Thomson road stem and Thomson Elite seatpost
Fizik R3 Arione saddle with carbon rails
Chris King R45 wheelset with HED Belgium 24/28h rims, laced with Sapim CX
Ray spokes (hubs maintained to manufacturer service intervals), and Enve ti
Vittoria Corsa SC clinchers, 25mm with latex tubes

All told it's a 15-ish pound road bike. This is a race bike through and
through. It accelerates like crazy, super stiff through sprint efforts, and
really dives into corners when you push it. I get at least three or four
questions about the bike every time I show up to the race, the paint is
really well done and gets a lot of compliments. Pictures don't quite have
the full effect.

I really like this bike and am sad to see it go, but I'm looking to sell
all my rim brake bikes.

Mileage is about 1,000 miles. A lot of those race miles. Never crashed.
Never intentionally ridden in the rain. I maintained this bike and to be
honest kind of baby'd it.
