    Parts Categories - am I missing anything?

    Ok, I'm going to blame it on the fact it's Friday, but so far I've had to rebuild my component category list twice today because I was missing categories. So here's my list of categories. If I'm missing anything obvious, please let me know asap.

    1. Wheelsets
    2. Stems
    3. Shifters
    4. Seat Posts
    5. Saddles
    6. Rims
    7. Rear Derailleurs
    8. Pedals
    9. Hubs
    10. Headsets
    11. Handlebars
    12. Front Derailleurs
    13. Freewheels
    14. Cranksets
    15. Chains
    16. Brakes
    17. Brake Levers
    18. Bottom Brackets


    (They're in reverse alphabetical order for a reason. Don't ask)

    Maybe I should add a 'Small Parts' category for such things. Couldn't hurt.

    Not sure if you need wheelsets if you have rims and hubs covered. Real hardcore restorers get down to spoke brands, which is a category unto itself!

    Suppose I should have been a bit more specific in the first post (still blaming the lack of brain activity on the fact it's Friday). What I'm needing the list for is for my new website currently being hosted at http://velobase.info (sign up for an account when you get a chance and feel free to poke around). Site will eventually be at velobase.com / velobase.net / velobase.info.

    Anyways, it is a vintage cycling component knowledgebase and am looking to get the categories that 99% of components would fall under that people would be looking for information on. I decided to add wheelsets since in the later 80's & early 90's pre-built wheelsets started to make an appearance vs rim/hub combos laced in any number of ways. Cut off for the site is going be early 90's with the introduction of STI (which I'm not covering).

    Tires is the one section above that I hadn't added thus far that I would consider adding (even at the extra work involved, all this so the category list appears in alphabetical order). However since tires are consumable, there is a limited need for information about old rubber.

    If anyone has a moment, I'd welcome some feedback on the site thus far. I have a bit of tweaking to do on the Quick Search (only search that is currently working) so that you can select all of one category instead of being forced to pick a brand as well. I know the information is spotty at best right now, just started loading data today from memory and what little information I have written down. (Note, if you have an account you can leave comments on components till I get roles added for those who want to help add and edit).

    Fenders? Or would that be an extra like racks, baskets, lights , bells, streamers grips , grip tape ect...You have hubs and rims what about spokes? Seats and post what about the clamp? Some one already got all the fidley little parts.This sounds like it will be a great help.
    There are some things a man needs to believe in wether they're true or not;

    Q: I have some nice original doc for vintage components. Will we be able to upload scans so that others can share in the doc?

    example: Suntour Cyclone MKII deraileurs v. 1982, Suntour Barcons v. 1975, Suntour Command Shifters v. 1989.

    I'd feel a lot better if the scans were hosted at one site, rather than 'ghosted' from imageshack or wherever.

    Might this be part of the vision?

    Depending on the size of the document I could likely host them. Eventually I have a feeling that I'm going to have to upgrade hosting for this site to something with more bandwidth so when that time comes I'll certainly consider hosting a more extensive collection of documents. Shoot me a PM and let me know how extensive your scans are and I might consider putting additional documents higher on my todo list.
