Mountain Cycle San Andreas XC MTB

I have made the jump to road cycling and have been trying to sell my mountain bike locally on Craig's list. Below is the ad description. I will sell the bike to a WT member for $1000 if anyone is interested. Prefer local pick up only. PM with questions. Thanks.

"Mountain Cycle San Andreas full suspension XC mountain bike. In my opinion, still the best looking mountain bike out there. Purchased for $3200. Asking $1250 OBO. Excellent condition. The first successful delta box/ monocoque full suspension frameset, the finest full suspension frames ever produced. Black/aluminum color. Standard size. Fox Shock, Rock Shox Psylo SL forks, Mavic CrossRoc UST (tubeless wheels and tires), Avid CPS disc brakes, Race Face ISIS cranks and BB, Shimano XT, Kore Lite, Cane Creek, Time ATAC XS clipless pedals, etc. Please contact me with any questions. I have been riding mountain bikes for 25 years and I'm finally going to give road cycling a try. Thanks for looking."

Not far from you at all, New Tampa area and I'll go and weigh the bike now........................hold on..............................almost done...................................wait for it.................................getting the bathroom scale out....................heading to the garage.............................unscientificall y somewhere in the 27-28 lb. range. Did I mention this bike was bullet and bomb proof. I also forgot to mention the bike has had a recent tuneup with new brake pads installed, new tires, new chain, and it has a brand new Koobi seat on it. I removed my 12 year old Koobi seat because it was a little beat up and has seen duty on 3 bicycles, and was perfectly molded over time to my bony ass. I figured nobody would want it.

I'd trade you a 95 CR250 straight up


Very nice. I wish I were closer to take a test ride.
I've got a 99 GT XCR5000 with a few upgrades. I like it, but I'm always looking.

Abba Zaba, you my only friend.

Thanks! I never even thought about it. I just rode the damn thing. Honestly, I don't even know what a top level FS mountain bike is supposed to weigh. I think it is definitely built more for downhill or freeride but it makes a great XC bike also. Never a twitch or mechanical problem from the bike and (knock on wood) I never had a flat with the tubeless tires either. On my previous bike with tubes I was averaging one flat per weekend. I was up in NC at Nantahala (sp?) with this bike a few years back and rode it up and down all the trails, no problem. For the last 4 years I have been dragging my kids around behind it in a Burley trailer, which was an extra 50-70 lbs. I just crushed the pedals. I think that's why I'm enjoying this road bike thing, light as a feather with not much rolling resistance and I can FLY!!!

My rotec FR-8 weighs in about 44lbs


My old Voodoo tips the scales around 33lbs
The Rotec is lots more fun when the world goes vertical

It was one of those tree huggers, he got in the way, the hand has been returned and re-attached, he's recovered most of the feeling in that hand, doctors are impressed.

Thats actually not my bike, mine has a black swingarm and seat mast but it was close enough since I don't have a pic of mine.

I've been out of mountain biking for a while and had no idea Mountain Cycle was still in business. I remember the first time I saw the San Andreas (about 20 years ago) I couldn't stop staring at it! To this day I still think it's the coolest looking mountain bike ever!
I have an Intense Tracer that I built up and never ride, otherwise I'd be all over this deal!

You can thank Specialized Bicycles for pointing Mountain Cycles towards the "out of business" door. Portland based Mtn. Cycles produced a fine aluminum cyclocross frameset aptly named the Stumptown after their hometown. Specialized felt that the moniker was close enough to Stumpjumper copyright infringement and launched a lawsuit which proved too costly for Mtn. Cycles to endure. All in a days work in the business world I suppose.

I have been hearing that "rumor" for a long time now.

www.mountaincycle.com Still there as of yesterday.

"The latest issue of Mountain Bike Action (January 2009!) lists the Mountain Cycle San Andreas as one the the “50 mountain bike designs that changed the world”. Not only were we listed but put right up near the top.

“Mountain Cycle San Andreas: This monocoque, dual suspension, inverted fork, disk-braked bike originally appeared in the November 1992 issue and sold for $1950 (frame and fork)…. Still a magnificent piece of engineering”.

Thanks guys!"

The San Andreas frame set came in one standard size with different size sub-frames. (The literature lists 17"-21") When I bought the frame I changed the sub-frame but I can't remember if I changed from standard size to large, or from large to standard size sub-frame. There is also 2 different mounting points on the frame for the sub-frame. I am 5'10" if that helps.

This may kill the deal, and I know you prefer local, but how much would it cost to ship to Houston, 77055? I'm 5'9", so I guess my height is close enough.

I have no idea, but probably $100 or more to pack it the right way, insurance, etc. With the price of shipping these days, everything is ridiculous. I could try to get more info on Monday. If anyone else knows approx. how much, chime in.

I shipped a Gixxer stator to a guy in the UK as a favor a few months back. The package weighed two pounds, UPS wanted $115, FedEx wanted $100, and USPS was $45. Obviously it went USPS. Still a rip off.
