This is a 2009 Velokraft VK3. It is essientially brand new. I built this bike for a client who, after it was done, disappeared. So, I am offering it up for sale.
 
The frame is a long. So, it is only for those who are 5 foot 10 or taller. Here are the specs;
 
 

Carbon VK3 frame (it is full suspension, fork listed below)
Carbon tiller
Carbon 170mm FSA cranks
62 tooth front chainring
Hollow link, light weight chain
Ultra light titanium, aluminum rear cassette (9 speed)
Sram X0 derailer
Sram X0 shifter
Aerospoke wheels
White Brothers suspension fork
Custom chain guide and idler for fork clearance
The carbon tail box comes with the bike, but is not mounted yet. I merely taped it on for the pictures. I did not want to drill the frame for mounting. I will leave that for the permanent owner.    :~)
It also comes with a carbon Velokraft headrest. It is not shown in the pictures, but is included.

The bike, with suspension fork and sturdy Aerospoke rims, weighs in at 28 pounds. This could be far lighter, I know. But, for the beefy rims and fork, I think that is quite light!
 
The bike has nearly $7,000 in it. As I mentioned, I am selling it because it was built to sell. However, since my client is no longer here, I am not asking as much. I just need to sell it to recoup as much of my cost as I can. As it sits, I am asking $5,000 plus shipping cost. There is a high-end redumbent shop near my house. I will have them box and ship it. My guess is about $200 for boxing and shipping to the US. If you are local enough to come pick it up you will, obviously, save the shipping costs.
