SDBC 2016 Sponsors

We have some new sponsors this year - Chrome Dome Caps, Overland & Shanahan Wealth Advisors, Sheffield Platers, Purely Cloud, and Pro Athlete Law Group.

Emerald Textiles will continue as our title sponsor, UC Cyclery is continuing as our official bike club and sponsor of the men's and women's Cat 1/2 teams, and many sponsors that have supported us for years will continue to support us this year.

Please support our sponsors. Without them SDBC would not be able to maintain the racing teams and other activities that we have all enjoyed. Visit the sponsors page on the SDBC web site to view more information about each of our sponsors or click the logos to go the specific sponsor's web site.

2013 Specialized Shiv Comp Rival carbon TT bike in size Small. This Shiv Comp has $1500 in upgrades.

The bike is practically new. Condition of bike: Excellent! This bike has very few miles: used only for one ironman - including training in 2 months prior to the race.

The saddle pictured on the bike has never been used. I have several other bikes and, after my last ironman, I focused more on double centuries.

Full Specs available on the Specialized web site

Roval SL 45 Wheelset
SRAM Red Rear Derailleur and Crankset

$3,200 I have the original sales receipt from UCC. All upgrades are listed on sales receipt. This bike is a great deal.
