    I'm with Bat, I've gotten used to ignoring the stickies and just noticed this thread!

    I don't have anything to share that isn't actively being used, since I tend to only replace things when they're destroyed. However, I'm planning an upgrade soon and will be happy to share...but the parts will be low-end and 15 years old.

    EDIT: Also, I assumed the thread was about stories about how we've gotten help *while* commuting and paid it forward (we ahve threads to that effect from time to time). A slightly more descriptive title might help too.

    You are a generous guy. Kudos to you! I don't need any of that stuff but I am sure you are going to make someone really happy.

    Big thanks to xB_Nutt! I received the mirror which he so generously gave away last week, and put it on my bike this weekend. Really appreciate it man!

    Don't be disheartened... the concept of PAY IT FORWARD takes a minute to catch on.... I think there will be an increase as the weather improves.

    Hey, that ross looks kinda cool. Nice of you to offer it up here in the pay it forward thread. Hope the shipping to CT isn't too bad.

    I have a couple of things that someone might get some use from. I bought a mountain stem for my commuter but ended up with the wrong one. The one pictured is a Specialized Rockhopper Stem, 1 1/8 Dia. x 150mm x 24 deg rake. My old Rockhopper Comp has a 1" headtube. I ended up finding what I needed.

    Also, a used Graber fork mount, a Shimano BB-UN53 122.5 x 68 tapered (new but the box is beat up), and a nice set of Tire Savers. I have a set of Tire Savers on my "82 Raleigh. I'm always getting comments!

    There are a couple of things I'd like to find that are old school:
    My old Raleigh has a braze-on for a Rhode Gear Flickstand. This is the one that did not need the strap. Also I'm looking for a Specialized Mountain Cage (the plastic one).

    Maybe a trade? Anyway, the stuff I have is free if you pay shipping. I'll find the cheapest shipping method I can. If you are in Kansas City, I'll bike it to you for free! Ha!

    I have some blue Specialized bar tape up for grabs. It's a very vibrant blue that matches this saddle, which clashed with the blue on my bike so I've never used it. http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/...jsp?spid=44008

    Please PM me just in case I forget to check this thread again. Continental 48 states, please.

    This one IS more suited to commuters, not so much the "project bike" guys...

    I have a kickstand of the older design which bolts onto the left side of the rear triangle, just in front of the axle. Road-bike type frame only.

    [rhm has claimed them]
    I have two 27 x 1-1/4 tires that I only used for 12 miles. They're just too wide to easily pass my brakes when I want to remove the wheels, so I moved to 27 x 1's.

    These tires are Specialized Tri-Sport, marked as 32-630 as well. They have black sidewalls that also say they're made in Taiwan and 100 PSI max.

    Anybody in the Cleveland area could just pick them up or I might be able to deliver.

    Yikes! ALREADY GONE - 1 pair of Endura Strike Gloves. Size medium. Just a little too small. Good for a guy about 5'7" or 5'8" with average sized hands. Here's a link. Since they are last year's model, the pads in the palm are actually black which I think looks a little less goofy. You'll need to pay shipping. Very good quality gloves and I really like them. You can go an easy hour in a downpour and your hands will stay dry and warm.

    GONE TOO! - 1 Mirrycle Road Mirror. Brand new and used 1 time. Couldn't return it since I lost some of the packaging. Vibrates a little too much for me. Then again, I ride on pretty crappy roads. You pay shipping. All put together but I don't have the mounting instructions. Very simple to do and I can talk you through it. Works on Tiagra and 105 STI levers without a shim. I don't have the shims any more. Here's a link.

    I'm in.
    Up for grabs:
    One brand new SKS Shockboard front suspension dirtboard. I've even got the mounting kit.
    One Take a Look Cycling Eyeglass Mirror.

    I'll take the shipping in the Lower 48 USA and work with anyone else.

    Let's spread the Karma by saying one item per taker.
    Thanks!
