Have:

New FSA compresor nut (aluminum, not carbon - the one that costs $15)
New Shimano RSX 172.5 triple crank set (sq taper) w/ 48/38/26 chainwheels
Used Rock Shox front fork (1" threaded steerer) - low miles but needs rebuild because it leaks if turned upside down
Used Shimano BBUN51 bottom bracket with cups and crank arm bolts - good shape + low miles
Used Tioga Expert CR 1" external cup headset - black cups (good shape) cup OD = 30.2; cup ID = 26.4


Want:

Early/vintage Shimano XT (or equivalent) 36 spoke mtn bike wheels or hubs. Rear hub MUST BE for a spin-on freewheel (not cassette type) 126.5 spacing

OR

Shimano XT bar shifters for mtn bike (need 7 or 8 speed - have 6 speed already) AND
Shimano XT (or equivalent) 36 spoke cassette style rear wheel / hub for mtn bike

I need to replace my rear wheel. I can either replace it with vintage parts, or cold-set the frame and upgrade to modern stuff as a package. The bike is so old it is not worth spending $ on to do this rather than buying a new Rockhopper.

GONEFree to good home (so only putting this up in the Clyde forum!)

Digital Camera - Pentax Option W20. Takes stills and video. SD card.

Compact water proof camera, with cable and charger (but you'll need an adaptor as this is Hong Kong plug and 240v). I might even still have the manual.

Why free?
Technically it all works, but it has be come 'slow'. A couple of the small menu buttons don't always work first push, more recently it has chosen cruddy modes when on auto, the focus has 'hunted' a bit for the action shots. Basically it's giving me the sh!ts at times and I'm missing some shots I didn't want to miss.

It's been underwater a bunch of times (fresh, salt, chlorine - I work at a yacht club) and has always been rinsed and dried carefully. Never once has water gotten in past the seal on the battery/memory card slot - yet I've got that feeling that it has started it's steady decline to death.

I'm going to get a new one (same type, new model) as I can justify this for work.

Hopefully someone can get some good use from it before it dies. If you can wait for the menus and only take more static shots, you should be fine.

You pay postage from Hong Kong. Shouldn't be any more than about US$10.

Want:

170mm left crank arm, black, similar to or compatible with what came with an '06 Trek 4300. Square taper. The original left arm wasn't tightened properly from stock, so it wallowed out. I replaced the crankset with something nicer made by Sugino, but wouldn't mind getting a replacement part if someone has it, for spares.

Have:

Stock seatpost from an '01 Schwinn Mesa GSX. I think it's a 26.8mm post, I would have to measure it to know the length. It's shorter than the Bontrager post I swapped it for.

I realize that the chances of someone having that exact crank arm and wanting that exact post are rather slim, so if you need anything else let me know and I can scrounge the parts bin, I know there's more stuff in there.

Free or Almost Free to good home...

4XL Mt. Borah Freedom Exercise Pant. Great for commuting in chilly (35-65), damp/sprinkly, light-medium wind conditions. 48-50 waist, 33 inseam. Used sparingly one season, then I shrunk out of them.

If you don't live in Seattle area, then drop $5 to my Livestrong campaign and I'll ship them free.

Anyone want to trade bikes?

I have a 56cm Trek 1000 (road bike) that's in darn near new condition, very low miles... but I've come to the realization that it's a size too big. I could probably get a short stem and be just fine with it until I could buy something else, but if someone wants to trade me for their 54cm (or maybe smaller?) bike of similar level, great!

Bought it 10 years ago, new... and haven't ridden it much since then. Makes me feel like Superman when I reach the drops!

If not a full bike, anyone have rediculously short stems?

Thanks!

Fenders. I have two pairs I don't use because they are the wrong size. One is a "Slik" fender from Sette/Price Point designed for mountain bikes, and the other is a Nashbar commuter fender, size 26-28. Neither fit my Long Haul Trucker, which is running 32s. I'll trade for the right size fenders.

New to biking so I don't have much to offer up for trade.

Have:
Nike Livestrong 10//2 XL Lightweight Jacket. NWT.
I thought this was a XXL and bought it off eBay, but when it arrived I realized my mistake.
http://cincinnati.craigslist.org/clo/1985854161.html

Nike Livestrong 10//2 Sleeveless Jersey. NWT.
Didn't realize exactly how the typical jersey fits (newbie) and I need to size up. Typically wear a XXL, so this didn't fit and not keen on sleeveless so willing to part ways.
http://cincinnati.craigslist.org/clo/1985846080.html

Bontrager Satelite Saddle/Bars/Grips
http://cincinnati.craigslist.org/bik/1937196032.html

Want:
Anything Fat Cyclist-- hopefully jersey in XXXL (or even XXL-- motivation)
Club or relaxed fit jersey-- XXL
Shimano PD-M324 SPD pedals

@RoadTrip - I've got a twinsix "The Original" (http://www.twinsix.com/gear/mens-tech/original-j#1) jersey in a 2XL that I might be interested in trading for the Jacket. It's not exactly relaxed fit but it's not race cut. Worn only about 5 times, it just doesn't match my bibs

Want.. Shimano 14-28 7 sp freewheel

I have a low miles Shimano 7 sp 14-34 to trade for the 14-28. This 14-34 on my backup bike which has low miles on it... looks very low wear.

I'd consider a trade for a custom 7 sp.. so long as the tall gear is a 28.

trade my Bike E XL for a set of road wheels. I'm over 300 lbs and buying a CAAD9-4, which comes with Shimano RS 10s, which are crap anyway, let alone at my size... Need something heavy duty with 36 spokes. Prefer SRAM hubs... Will include the stock Shimano wheels for the right set.

Note: the wheels will have to come later because the bike is going to be on layaway for a little while - I don't have that kind of cash on hand right now...

Prefer a local(ish) trade because shipping on the Bike E will be cost-prohibitive. Willing to drive around 100 miles or so to do the swap.
