56cm Sam HIllborne needs a good home.

If you’ve been thinking about a Sam in the most popular mid-size range, here’s one to consider.

484A6450It’s unusual for us to have used bikes for sale.  When we do, it’s because they are something special, and this 56cm Sam Hillborne by Rivendell fits the bill.


484A6437We sold this bike just under three years ago, and it has found it’s way back to us from the original owner virtually unridden.  I can’t imagine how that might happen, but it has.

484A6449The build is nicer than “usual” in a number of ways.  It has an upgraded Da Vinci triple crank and bottom bracket.  It also sports a super strong wheel set with Velocity Dyad rims, DT Swiss DB SS spokes and Shimano XT hubs.  Schwalbe Marathon Supreme 700×35 tires.

484A6447In back is a 9 speed 11-32 cassette with a triple in front to tackle any terrain. SKS Longboard fenders and a Tubus Racktime rear rack make for a versatile machine with, or without, a load in most any conditions.

A super comfortable upright riding position with Brooks B17 Imperial saddle, a Nitto Dirt Drop stem, Albatross bars and Dura Ace shifters on Paul Thumbies complete the cockpit.

From commuting and grocery getting, to casual riding and long range touring, this bike can do it all.  Priced ~$500 below what it would cost to build new, at $2650, it’s worth a look.  Because the bike is in such fabulous condition, we are selling it with our standard new bike warranty.  This includes 6 months of free service and adjustments as well as a free warranty check-up/tune-up at the end of the 6 month period (or earlier).

For more information, call us at 617-244-1040, email me/Elton, or stop in for a look and a test ride.
