    Not a complete bike but at a church sponsored rummage sale I found
    a set of Integra STI 9 speed shifters for $2.00. They didn't work but after a cleaning with WD40 they work fine.
    Also they had a Selle Italia Flite saddle with no price, asked how much and
    the guy said how about 50 cents. It is now on my Ironman.
    Am going to put the shifters on my Ironman also.

    The Carkton is cool, but I SO would have kept the Brooks saddle that came on it?? It was more likely a B.15, but I guess it doesn't matter anymore. Do NOT ride it again until you lube everything either. That "ride" may have blown out both hubs and the bottom bracket, since the grease is probably completely dried up.,,,,BD
    The one good thing about black cork wrap is that it's better than nothing.

    Geometry seems tight it steers good with a stiff frame, in particular the fork.

    It had a non original B17 it was quite new looking but I couldn't handle wearing it in and the brakes look to new to be original I'm sure the hoods are new "nice bonus"
    I test rode before buying and everything worked like a charm and very smooth the panta is more from bad storage but yep its still gotta pulled down and given the treatment.

    Picked up a nice package deal today, a Bridgestone MB5, a 1998 +/- Caloi Comp (Shimano 105 STI), and a bunch of extras. I've never come across a Caloi before, but I love the metallic green color!

    fighting the urge to get in trouble with my work's filters by hunting down Monical Bellucci pictures now...
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Yes, the bags were all too good of a deal to pass up. The red & blue bags are panniers that can also be used as backpacks. Great for shopping. The Banjo Bros. bag I have wanted for years. The leather bag is a nice leather briefcase but it will see mostly carry-on bag use when I travel. Its a great match for my leather duffel. Its much too heavy to be used as a messenger bag or pannier. I ended up with all the bags for under $100, so I would be kicking myself now if I had passed on any of them.

    I've got a new project... a Series 2 PDG Schwinn P-mount frame off of CL. It's in great shape cosmetically. I used to have a Series 3 PDG that I kind of regretted selling because I really liked the frame but not so much the components.

    I also won an eBay auction for a nearly complete Shimano 105SC group, Cinelli stem/bars, and Campy Omega wheelset that will go on the above frame. Spent a bit more here but I'm sure I saved some money over hunting for each individual part.

    How about, ‘saved from the parking lot’. A funny thing happened at the Home Depot today; as I was leaving the parking lot, my bike antenna went up. There in the outer lot was this frame standing upright with no one else around. My forensic analysis of the situation is that the bike had been pilfered and stripped. However, the thief didn’t have the heart to toss the frame just anywhere. I’m going to post it on the local Craigs to see if someone claims it. But if I end up stuck with it, I know nothing about French bikes. It appears to be a rather low-end frame with 122mm rear spacing. Peugeot Record Du Monde. Unfortunately, the fork appears bent.


    Half of the time I fear I may not know what the hell Iím doing; the other half, Iím sure of it.

    Yes, R556's, with relatively new cables and housing. This leads me to believe that the bike had been recently ridden.

    Despite the saddle. It's an odd situation for sure. Frame is stripped of the cranks, which require a special tool, but the brakes and stem/seatpost are there? I'll bring a crank puller and chain break, but no allen keys?

    Maybe someone was doing a craigslist deal for the bike, met in the parking lot, and forgot it?

    Looks like a project bike to me. Was in the back of a car maybe and wife/girlfriend got sick of it being there when they got something new at one of the stores that the parking lot was for. Pitched it out, or maybe just forgot it after re-arranging stuff.

    Maybe they didn't meant to leave it and just forgot to put it back in? Maybe instead of a bunch of items they bought they had a flat tire and had to take the project out to get at the spare -and then forgot to put it back in?

    The possibilities are endless.

    My money is on a project bike that was never finished looking at those brakes. Maybe it got stolen as is and then dumped later. Maybe someone just wanted the cranks?

    I'd just question the picture. Dumps bury or scrap, not half bury so they know what the heck they put there.

    Some places have dumps , where people leave things . Other have landfills, where waste is buried . I would think recycling companies would get ahold of things like bikes before they were buried .

    The photo is of the bike sitting in my friends yard, the rear wheel, (wooden) is tacoed and appears to be half burried, but is not.
    Ours is a landfill, where waste is burried. You take your trash there and pay by the ton to dispose of it.
    I find it funny that people would pay by the ton to throw away metal, when there are a dozen or so local people who if you telephoned them, would be at your door in five minutes to haul off any unwanted metal you might have laying around.
    Either way, I would guess the "no scavanging" thing is about safety. I doubt the landfill is worried about people "stealing" the trash.

    With permission from Landfill Site Management, I manage to salvage about 300 bicycles a year. Of those 300, approximately 240 of them will be shipped to Africa. The rest are also recycled, in a responsible manner, creating less pollution and helping others in the process. The following picture is a single day's picking, during 2009 Free Dumping Week...
