Clydesdale & Athena "For Trade" thread

Since so many of our needs are specialized in nature, it makes sense for us to have a specific "For Trade" thread. Do not post For Sale in this thread, or it will be deleted and if it happens too often, the thread will go away. All trade details are to be done in PM. Post what you have available here, as well as what you are looking for, in anything in particular.

I know all of you will honor these conditions, though, I just have to post 'em.

I have for trade the following stuff:

Books:
- Weight Training for Cyclists
- How to Mountain Bike Like A Champion by Ned Overend.
- Beginning Cyclist Handbook from Rodale
- Bicycling Magazine's Training Techniques for Cyclists
- Training for Cycling by Davis Phinney and Connie Carpenter
- Tour de France Companion by Bob Roll, 2004 edition
- The Immortal Class: Bike Messengers and the Cult of Human Power. Former library book, with plastic dustcover.

Shoes:
- DMT Mag Force, size 47. They comfortably fit my size 12 EEEE feet. The cleats (Shimano Road) are in very good condition. The shoes have less than 100 miles on them.

- Specialized MTB shoes, red and gray, size 47. I've worn these on and off for two years, but they are still in good shape. The shoes have had some alternation to the sole to allow Speedplay Frogs to be installed. No cleats are on the shoes.

Pedals:
- 1 set of cheap plastic platform pedals
- 1 set of Shimano Road pedals, used less than 100 miles.

Pannier:
- Trek grocery bag panniers. Very well-worn but still usuable.

Jersey:
- Long sleeve Performance racing jersey, red and gray, size XL. Even at 240 pounds it was too small for me. I think I've worn it once. No pockets in the back.

Pump:
- Wrench Force frame pump.

Gloves:
- Performance long-fingered winter riding gloves, size L
- Performance neoprene winter riding gloves, size L

***********

I want (from most extravagant to more reasonable):
- recumbent bicycle (it never hurts to ask, does it? )
- large size panniers for touring and commuting
- large size platform or flat pedals for touring
- strong headlight system for night riding
- fork for a BOB trailer
- steel or aluminum fork to replace the carbon fork on my Trek 7.5 fx.
- Power Grips

Please PM me if you are interested in trading for any or all of these things.

In addition to my somewhat extravagant list of things I want, if anyone wants to suggest a trade of something else, let me know. I'm new to bikes and still don't know what I need.

OK, some folks will think this gross, and I'm somewhat leery about it, but here goes....

I have a pair of 2xl shorts I got from the MS City to Shore in 2007. These are shorts, not bibs, and they are race cut. They have "MS City To Shore 2007" printed on the leg. I've worn them twice. They are good shorts, made by Verge, but I'll never wear them again. Anyone want to trade something for them? Or perhaps pay for postage and they are yours.

A pair of inexpensive Nashbar MTB shorts with pockets, black, size 2xl. I wore them about a dozen times before I switched to bibs, and again I'll never go back. Yours for postage. They were snug around my 46 inch waist.

A pair of Time ATAC pedals, lightly used. The cleats have gone AWOL. Yours for shipping, and cleats will run you ~$18 online. The pedals work nicely, are very solidly made, but they took more force to un-clip than my weak right knee can reliably generate.

I'd also trade for a front/rear set of at least half-decent V-brakes, and I'll pay shipping.

Pay it forward - gloves

GONE

I have a pair of Specialized branded gloves that are a bit big for my hands. Have done about 50km of riding and have been washed by hand. Look very new.

Size XL, see two pictures here.

I've got quite square/large hands, but these were a little too big and the design of them - with the very tall edged padding (see lighter grey area on palm) - made them uncomfortable for me to wear as the padding moved out of position for me. A person with a bigger hand - and thus less movement for the padding - would be fine.

Dimensions shown roughly with the ruler. 10cm across?

Pay it forward for cost of postage. I'm in Hong Kong, so perhaps US$3-7 for airmail? I'll let you know before I send.
