    FS: 2019 RSD Middlechild steel hardtail 29er custom build

    For sale is my 2019 RSD Middlechild custom build. I purchased the frame back in July of 2019 and slowly built the bike up while I was recovering from a knee surgery. No expense spared, frame was properly reamed and faced, etc. I started riding the bike in December of 2019 for rehab and have about 150 miles on the frame (only 20 miles on the wheelset/tires). I recently purchased a full suspension bike so this one is up for sale. There are a couple cosmetic scratches shown in the photos, but otherwise the bike is in immaculate condition. Asking price is $3k. Text at 415-seven four two-9065 if interested, bike is located in SF Bay Area.

    If you are not familiar with the RSD brand, they are a company located in Toronto specializing in quality steel, aluminum, and titanium frames. The Middlechild is a burly, modern, aggressive hardtail with internal dropper routing, boost spacing, threaded BB, sliding dropouts, etc… it checks all the boxes! Oh, and it can run either 29x2.6” or 27.5x2.8” tires.

    The Build:
    Frame: 2019 RSD Middlechild Chromoly, Size Medium, Turquoise
    Fork: 2019 Fox 34 Factory, 140mm travel, Boost spacing, 44mm offset, FIT4 damper
    Drivetrain: Shimano XT 11-speed
    Brakes: Shimano XT 4-piston, 180mm Icetech rotors. Currently set up moto-style but I can easily reverse if desired.
    Wheels: Stan’s NoTubes Flow EX3, 29”
    Tires: Specialized Butcher Grid 2.6” front, Specialized Purgatory Grid 2.6” rear
    Seatpost: Fox Transfer Factory, 125mm, internally routed
    Seat: Ergon SM Sport, Size S/M
    Handlebar: OneUp carbon bar (cut to 770mm length)
    Stem: Paul Component 35mm length, 35mm diam
    Grips: Wolftooth Karv silicone
    Dropper Lever: Wolftooth, blue anodized (limited colorway)
    Chain guide: OneUp

    The Geometry (if you like to geek out about numbers like me):

    Stack: 619mm [606mm]
    Effective Top Tube: 625mm [620mm]
