This Specialized S-Works Transition Carbon Triathlon or Time Trial bike is the BEST of the BEST that would typically only be seen raced by professional racers since it debuted in 2009 (yet was purchased new in 2010) & retailed for $9,000 that's right -- Nine Grand! In fact, the professional racer Chris "Macca" McCormack was discussed in an article that said "Macca cheats the Hawaiian Trade Winds on the S-Works Transition to take his first Ironman World Championship."

It's spent 90% of its life as wall art in our living room & received brand new SRAM bar tape and tires before being settling into its pedestal, perched up on our wall, and everyone that's seen it just marvels at the design! I'm 5'9, it fits me like a glove, and has plenty of room for adjustments, though I'm ashamed to admit I don't remember exactly what size it is as the sticker came off when I had it fully tuned and buffed before being put up on our wall. It's either a small or medium, but given its current set up and my being 5'9, I'd say can easily be adjusted to fit anyone from 5'6-6'0.
It's completed built out with SRAM RED everything; shifters, derailers, crank, cassettes, chain, etc. & also includes the zipp aerobars, custom fit water bottle system, & Shimano Dura Ace Race WH-7850-SL wheelsets with brand new tires -- wheelset alone costs $1,500 & are absolutely amazing -- feel free to read the reviews on them:

Wife & I just had a baby so as much as I'd like to satisfy my desire to race there will no longer be time for it. Pick it up for a fraction of the price @ $2999 or best offer. Shoot me an email to take a look at it in person -- you won't be disappointed with this crowd pleaser & personal best record breaking work of art!
Photos speak for themselves but in case you're wondering here's some more info on it:
S-WORKS TRANSITION
• The light and fast Transition S-Works FACT 9r carbon, triple
monocoque frame features our N'Aero tube shaping in a
compact aero design, with an oversized BB for maximum
pedaling efficiency.
• The Specialized S-Works FACT N'Aero carbon monocoque
fork is light and fast.
• The Easton Attack TT aero handlebar puts you in the perfect
position for the long-haul tri miles.
• The Specialized integrated brake system maintains an aero
profile while still providing sure stops.
• O ur S-Works FACT carbon crankset is light and strong;
its integrated oversized design makes for high-efficiency
power transfer.
• The Body Geometry TriTip saddle features a thickly padded
nose for comfort on those long miles.
• The Transition Carbon seatpost is perfectly shaped to cheat
the wind.

REVIEWS
"Thanks for the unfair advantage!"
- Chris "Macca" McCormack following his win at the Quelle Challenge in Germany

"It may be early to classify the new Specialized Transition as one of the most significant time trial bikes of the last 20 years, but we are willing to hedge our bets."
- Road Bike Action, June '08
"Wind tunnel savant. Devastatingly narrow. Integrated, barely-there brake system . Now you see it, now you don't."
Ironman world champion

The Transition and Aerodynamics
When the hard truth is that 70-90% of the power you generate on
a bike goes toward overcoming aerodynamic drag, it's no wonder
we test and re-test our Transition bikes at facilities like MIT, the
A2 Wind Tunnel, University of Washington, and in real world races
against the clock.

We know that optimized equipment and positioning is the key
to maximum speed and energy savings for triathletes and time
trialists, and our goal is to give you the greatest advantage
possible. That's why we've created aerodynamic bikes and
equipment like the S-Works Transition and Roval Star wheel and
why we search for ways to improve our products every year.

Drag for cyclists is most commonly caused by the shape of your
body, bike and equipment causing air pressure differences in front
and behind you and because of this, the greatest way we can
boost your aerodynamics is by decreasing the frontal area and
carefully optimizing the shapes and cross sections of your gear to
create less resistance with the wind.

Through techniques like airfoil tube shaping, low-profile integrated
brakes, internal cable routing--plus wheels with minimal frontal
area, strategic spoking and a hub that acts like a mini disc--and an
overall focus on making the narrowest possible UCI-legal bike, the
Transition not only edges out the competition, but stands as the
fastest straight-line aero bike on the market.

S-WORKS TRANSITION MODULE
• The light and fast Transition S-Works FACT 9r carbon, triple
monocoque frame features our N'Aero tube shaping in a
compact aero design, with an oversized BB for maximum
pedaling efficiency.
• The Specialized S-Works FACT N'Aero carbon monocoque
fork is light and fast.
• The Specialized integrated brake system maintains an aero
profile while still providing sure stops.
• O ur S-Works FACT carbon crankset is light and strong;
its integrated oversized design makes for high-efficiency
power transfer.
• The Transition Carbon seatpost is perfectly shaped to cheat
the wind.


Since the Transition's ultra aerodynamic frame makes it the fastest bike in a
straight line, it's no wonder Ironman champions like "Macca" call it their unfair
advantage. The super narrow FACT carbon tubes are engineered in an airfoil
shape (the tallest allowed by the UCI) to minimize drag, and the 1-inch steerer
and integrated fork further reduce frontal area.

You can't get much narrower than
this. The Transition's skinny chain
and seatstays flare only at the dropouts,
the integrated brake system
tucks the stoppers out of the wind,
and the forward arcing seat tube
creates an aerodynamic shelter for
the rear wheel.

The Transition's front end uses
innovative techniques to methodically
skirt the wind, including a
turbulence-reducing gusset behind
the crown, a non-intrusive centerpull
front brake and internal cable
routing.
