Nadax Favorit BB, 1.37x24TPI. Detents in the fixed cup are dinged up pretty badly but it's a 6-notcher and 3 look intact. No cable guide.

lol.. it was at some storage place that was getting rid of a bunch of stuff. i got there at 2:30 and there was like 20 kids bike, one hybrid priced at $200 and this mtb for $20. i asked if there had been a lot of people and the lady said they had already sold more than half of what they originally had.. so i'm sure i missed out on some crazy good bikes lol
http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/bik/2398809895.html

i'll either sell the frameset or maybe build up some ghetto singlespeed with it.. though i'm not sure if i have enough brake parts on hand so i might just sell the frameset

I would need a crap 27" front wheel to match the crap rear wheel. The current front wheel is going in the parts pile.

here's the $20 GT mtb.. already stripped down





that bike donated its wheelset, chain and rear derailleur to the diamondback.. it's actually a bike now.. though just barely lol.. currently one speed and one brake. i need to get a stem with less rise though.. i might switch to v-brakes instead of canti, then i'll have more stem options


was able to use the 135mm wheel with my 130mm frame.. the hub had a 5mm spacer so it could be used with either sized frame, but the skewer and axle are too long for a 130mm frame.. so just put the spacer on the outside and redished the wheel. better than spreading out the stays cause that gets annoying when you want to remove the wheel often

I will see your Ross 600 Arabesque and Raise you one, both with TRIPLE 600 cranks! LOL
Picked a His and Hers Super Grand Tour XV today.
Now last year somebody picked up a Ross with triple 600 39/45/52 and we all thought it was a home brew. Apparently not because these are set up exactly the same. The 39 ring is on spacers.

I had the Ross with the triple. Nice know that the it was not a home-brew. Just gave the frame and some random (non-600) parts away to a young guy looking to build up a road bike.

Picked up a 91 Stumpjumper yesterday. I've always wanted one of these, but this one is too big for me. I might try my luck on the "pass-around game" thread...

I'd do it Chris because I've been wanting one as well and it looks like my size. Unfortunately I don't have anything to swap. Or do I?

I got this Bottechia 60cm ctt frame bare with a big parts purchase. Since I had a SS freewheel and crankset I built her as a SS. The picture does not show the bad paint condition. Unfortunately the QR skewer cannot hold the rear wheel - a replacement solid nutted axle is needed. With many other projects I sold to recoup costs and moved on.

A new QR with an internal cam should hold that rear wheel and you could put a few lock washers in to the current skewer to give it better traction.

Can't see what kind of skewer you are using but if you are using an open cam design they are ill suited for an SS application.
