Here's the story on this bike - I ordered it in April of 2022 and it was delivered on October of 2022. By the time it was delivered I had an injury so I couldn't ride for a while and it's been sitting in my basement for about 1.5 years, never ridden.

I recently had it tuned up by JRA bike shop in Greenwood with the intention of starting to ride again, but decided this is probably way too nice of a bike for me. I'm posting it for sale to try to roughly get my original investment back and buy a cheaper bike. I'm not desperate for a sale and if I don't get the right price I'll keep it and ride it.

The bike was built up by Rodeo labs themselves with their GRX 810 2x11 build. This build is no longer offered on their website but I've included a components parts list at the bottom of the listing.

The only customizations I made were to get the "Cerakote Blue Ice" paint job and 38mm GravelKing Slicks for tires. They were originally set up tubeless, but when I took it into JRA to tune up they couldn't get one of the tires to seal, so put a tube in it. It could easily be converted to tubeless again. JRA also fixed the front disk break which was sticking due to a part which was bent during shipping, and did an overall safety check to make sure the bike was properly put together. It's ready to ride, just needs pedals.

Info on pricing - I paid $5452 in April of 2022 including shipping and the Cerakote paint. As well as ~$100 on the tuneup from JRA bike shop. I'm assuming a similar buildup would be more expensive now due to inflation so I'm posting for $5400.

Here is an archive of the website from the day I bought the bike which includes the GRX 810 build: https://web.archive.org/web/20220205134927/https://www.rodeo-labs.com/shop/framesets/flaanimal5/
