Stock Cannondale stem from a CAAD9 size 60 (think the stem is 110mm) to trade for a 130mm stem with 10-17 degrees of rise.

Still have these shorts? I don't have much to trade, but I'd be willing to take them off your hands at the right price. I'm a noob though, so I can't send pm's...

Here's a shot in the dark. Anyone got a 650b rear wheel they want to trade for my 700c wheel? Looking to convert my Rivendell to 650b so I can run larger tires and fenders.

My wheel:
about 5000 miles
36 spokes
Velocity Deep-V silver
14g straight gauge spokes, laced 3 cross
Gray (not silver) polished Campagnolo Chorus hub, 9/10 compatible, I think 11 also.
Built by Nelo Breda at Nelo's Pro Cycles in Austin, Texas.
Inclusion of 13-26 Campagnolo Veloce 9 speed cassette negotiable.

What I'm looking for:
650b wheel, with a road rim, not an MTB rim.
Shimano or Campagnolo mid-range or higher hub
32 or (preferably) 36H
Built by a real human and not a machine.

Hi-vis light jacket and vest.

These are a bit big for me now and flap about in the wind when riding.

Both items from Uno, an Australian company with a wide range of basic/budget cycling gear. Made in China. Their website isn't working but I know that their store is still there.

Jacket - yellow and dark blue. Reflective trim. Mesh sides. Light fleece inside collar. Zip with velcro over flap. Pocket with zip. Size L. Measures 61cm/24in from armpit to armpit when flat (roughly a 48in chest measurement, a wearable 46?). Stain on centre back (near pocket) that looks to have been caused by being pressed up against some other dark clothing (odd pattern) when wet.



Vest - yellow and black. Reflective trim. Mesh back. Light fleece inside collar. Size XL. Measures 61cm/24in from armpit to armpit when flat (roughly a 48in chest measurement, a wearable 46?).


Probably cost about AUD$40-60 each when new.

Make me a festive offer on a trade (I can't think of anything I need!) or Free to Good Home.

Have:
Clydesdale wheelset, hand built.
Ultegra 6500 hubset was NIB, 8/9/10 freehub, of course.
DT Swiss 13g straight-gauge spokes, 32h per wheel.
DT Swiss R585 rims.

Everything about this wheelset is strong, super strong. The deeper rims allow the beefy spokes to be tensioned and keep their true.
32 of those spokes will hold about anything. Ultegra is not much heavier than DA, but much more durable.

These wheels are not for the petite amongst us. They weigh 2300g with QR skewers and rim strips.

But you won't break 'em! 150 miles on them.

ISO:
Now that I'm down from 202lbs to 165, I want something more dainty.
Or something that fits in the palm of my hand.....(no dirty jokes, please).

Wow down from 202 to 165 is a huge success... Not surprised though based on the list of bikes in the signature...

Being very sick helps a lot, but the 2014 Wraith is a celebration bike....

HAVE:

Kona Unit single speed MTB with disc brakes & new saddle. I don't know how to measure compact frames. I'm 6'2" and it's a tad small for me.

WANT:

Internal-gear hub 7 or 8 speed touring style bike.

Am flexible with other offers.
