Garage sale.

So it’s come to the point where I appear to have a fair few bike parts that I don’t need any more.

Most things I’m happy to part with for either free or a token donation, but there are a few things with a price.

First up is my old road frame that I sprayed green, it’s designed for 27″ wheels but I used to run it with the Tektro brakes below and 700c wheels. I can’t really sell this as it was a skip find and I have no idea on it’s structural stability, plus I’m pretty sure the forks are bent. However you could put together a simple pub/hack or polo bike with it. I think the seat tube is 54cm and about the same for the top tube, obviously I ran it with a large amount of seat post showing. That seat post is currently stuck, but I’m going to have a go at getting it out shortly. The Stronglight A9 steel 1″ threaded headset in there is fairly new and smooth, the 105 hollowtech bottom bracket is relatively old. Rear spacing is 120 or 126mm OLN I think.

Free to a good home (donation accepted if you’re feeling kind!)

This was the first wheel I ever built, Formula Hub on Mavic Open Sport rim with DT Swiss double butted spokes. Plenty of wear left on the rim and the bearings in the hub are smooth. 16t fixed cog and an Andel Lockring thrown in too.

Again Free (or donation)

Tektro R556 (very) long drop dual pivot caliper brakes, think the drop is 57-73mm off the top of my head. In good nick although they’ve seen a couple of hard winters, I had to use a bolt/nut on the rear to hold the cable as the thread has stripped but that doesn’t affect how they work.

Free (or donation)

SDG Venture Comp saddle, sparkly finish.

£5? (or offer)

Raceface Deus XC and Titec Hellbent handlebars. Raceface bars are 31.8 oversize and relatively wide (forgot to measure sorry), I don’t think they’ve been cut at all. Titec bars are flat with a sweep and 26.8 standard clamp size.

£5 each (or offer?)

Halo Twin Rail Courier tyres, these are purple and 700 x 24c. One is more worn that the other as you can see, I think that was the one on the back, they haven’t been ‘skidded’ just natural wear.

Free (or donation)
Level of wear.

Mavic road shoes UK size 11, I think these were £90 ish new, worn a fair bit over one summer but my preference is for spd pedals which have ‘cages’ to give more support so these aren’t really much use to me. Soles are quite scuffed which is purely aesthetic.

£40? (or offer)
Sole – can be fitted with most cleats.

I’d prefer people to come and get this from me, although I can drop off in Leeds/Harrogate if needs be. If anyone wants me to post something to them I’d obviously look for the postage money so I’m not out of pocket.
