Carbent Raven (Sold)

I’m pricing this Carbent Raven for a quick sale. I am the second owner of this bike. It has a fairly large frame. I would guess that it would fit a rider with 43″ to 47″ X-seam. It weighs 21 lbs with pedals. It shows that it has some miles on it but is in good mechanical and cosmetic shape. There is one exception – the carbon fiber seat has been patched on the face surface which is covered by the seat foam. (See the photo below). The seat seems structurally sounds but that hidden patch is not pretty. This bike is ready to ride today.


  • Some Details
    • FSA double crank with Q-Rings
    • Terracycle Idlers
    • SRAM chain with little elongation
    • Mavic 700c wheels and hubs
    • Bacchetta long handlebars
    • New foam seat pad
    • X-Eyed front brake, Bacchetta (?) rear brake
    • Avid brake levers
    • Shimano SPD pedals

Another Bike!

Only days after I picked up the Carbent, I noticed a posting in Craig’s List for a Bacchetta Carbon Aero for $1000. It looked to be in near new condition. I had to check it out. So, I made the trip up to San Luis Obispo and bought it on the spot. It has some pretty high end components like a carbon fiber crank, Q-Rings and a carbon fiber seat. It is pristine.

I’ve ridden both of my high racers and have decided that the Carbon Aero is staying and the Carbent will be put up for sale soon.
