Kestrel Talon Sl 55cm Shimano DA
For sale a 2010 Kestrel Talon SL TT/triathlon bike. I have used this bike for 3 seasons and progressively upgraded it. It has been my absolute pride and joy for this time period and I qualified for the Ironman world championships next year on it. It is very light and nimble for a TT bike with its true strengths lie in winding technical courses. It handles well in crosswinds and I have never seen anyone else riding this bike. You will be pretty unique. I'm only selling because I've bought a new bike for next year.
I have used some of the components from the new bike on this one, so has a mixture of brand new and used components. Please note, the bike with come provided with a brand new Mavic Cosmic Elite wheelset and not the Ritchey Apex wheels in the first picture. The spec is listed below:

Aerobars: 3t Aura pro (brand new)

As you can see, the bike is in very good shape, it's never been crashed and has been taken care of. There are a few very minor cosmetic marks, the worst of which I have shown in the pictures (on the front steer tube) If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
I am willing to ship and will use a bike specific box to pack and ship it in. Buyer assumes risk of damage, but I will insure it.
I am open to offers +/- the wheelset.
