My preference is a local, cash transaction. I'm in Davis, Ca (95618) but am willing to meet anyone around San Francisco or Sacremento. If you're able to pickup and pay cash the price is $1,175 and obviously no shipping charge.
2012 Salsa Chili Con Crosso

Height Range: 5'7" - 5'11"
Price: $1,195+actual shipping
I really really hate to do this but up for sale is my nearly brand new Salsa Chili Con Crosso. I've had the bike for less than 6 months and it's seen probably 400 miles in that time. It was purchased new from Hampshire Bicycles in February. I'm only selling it because I'm getting married in 2 weeks and my fiance just gave me my wedding gift --- a 2012 BH RX1, so unfortunately the Salsa is getting nudged out (even though I prefer the ride & geometry over the BH)
I've made the following upgrades to the bike:
$22 - Woodman Deathgrip SLti Seatpost Clamp (12g (!))
$85 -Thomson Elite Seatpost
$45 - FSA Omega Compact Bars (42cm)
$35 - FSA 110mm x 6* Stem
$15 - Arundel Cork Bar Tape (Black)
Also included with the bike is a Custom Frame Bag made out of Water Resistant Dimension Polyant VX21 & Cordura 500D. #8 Water Resistant Zippers all the way around. This is a $165 bag and the wait time for one of these is typically 1-2 months.

ASKING $1,195+actual shipping
The bike is super light coming in right around 18.5lbs. It has a full carbon fork, 1.5" to 1.25" tapered steerer tube, BB30 bottom bracket (suuper stiff), 1x10 gearing and has replaceable dropouts that give you the option to run the bike as a single speed.
Incredible race machine, awesome gravel grinder, excellent commuter. Super versatile and very comfortable. I'll include a set of composite flat pedals for riding around town.
