Quintana Roo CD0.1 - Black

I had the pleasure of doing this custom build for a local client here in St. George this past week.
This was his first triathlon/TT bike purchase.  After an initial bike fit sizing check, we narrowed it down to a handful of makes and models.  He ended up choosing a great one -- QR CD0.1 High-Mod Carbon frameset.  Within a few days I was able to source a very low miles 2011 frameset in his size and in excellent condition.  We were well on track to meet his initial budget limit of $3,000, until he decided to upgrade to the Reynolds Assault Carbon Clinchers at the last minute  ;-)  All things considered, he got a TON of bike for just $3,250!!

Build Details:

- 2011 Quintana Roo CD0.1 High Modulus Carbon Fiber Frameset
- SRAM Red 53/39 Crank w/ Black Chainrings
- SRAM Red Black Edition Front/rear Derailleurs
- Zipp Vuka Bull Base Bar
- Zipp Vuka clips, and Zipp Ski Tip Extensions
- Visiontech Brake Levers,
- Rotor Bike Titanium Hollow-pin Chain
- ISM Podium Saddle
- Front & Rear Brake is frame-specific TRP side-pull brake
- Reynolds Assault Carbon Clincher wheels
- Schwalbe Durano Plus Tires

Total, out-the-door, client Cost = $3,250
Total MSRP = $6,000+

This is the only picture I have at the moment.  I hope to post a drive-side pic soon.
(btw: that's a glare on the downtube, not a blemish.)
