    Swap meet shopping list.

    There's going to be a swap meet in the St Louis area on Jan 27. Trust me, I don't NEED anything, but I've been kind of mopey because I don't have a project going. I'm even beginning to doubt the n+1 rule unless, of course, I stumble upon just the "right" frame for a really, really good deal.

    Stuff I'd be interested in:

    40 hole rear tandem disc hub - 160 OLD.
    Black 32 hole XT hubset - not disc.
    32 hole road hubset Ultegra or black 105.
    32 hole sew up rims.
    7-speed rapid fire shifter set.
    Compact crankset 50/34.
    Brooks saddles.
    Incredibell.
    Black or maybe even red 32 hole mountain bike rims.
    Old style (recessed cleat) Ultegra SPD pedals.
    747 (or more modern equivlent) SPD pedals.

    A pair of rims or a hubset could keep me going for several weeks by the time I deconstruct one or more of my other wheelsets to swap rims and hubs around. Some of the stuff on the shopping list, on the other hand, would just be spares and wouldn't do anything for my project addiction.

    Last year at the Madison meet, a LBS brought a dozen Brooks B17 saddles and were selling them at $50 each. I doubt they do that again this year. At least not at $50.

    I remember there being hundreds of rims hanging off of the booths. Didn't pay attention to what they were as I'm not about to try to build a wheel.

    Get an XT tandem hub and space out to suit. Not as good as a proper made 160- but they are not cheap


    Black 32 hole XT hubset - not disc.
    Have 6 on bikes now

    32 hole road hubset Ultegra or black 105.
    32 hole sew up rims.

    7-speed rapid fire shifter set.
    Only one I know of is STX and have to get a pair myself

    Compact crankset 50/34.
    Realised the legs need lower gearing? Both road bikes have compacts

    Brooks saddles.
    Masochist

    Incredibell.
    Keep it in your pocket and throw it at the peds- Only way a bell works over here

    Black or maybe even red 32 hole mountain bike rims.
    Don't get black spokes on a deal- unless they are an unopened packet of DT or better.

    Old style (recessed cleat) Ultegra SPD pedals.
    Can't help you there

    747 (or more modern equivlent) SPD pedals.
    Your talking quality now and that does not seem normal
    Luckily- I have an LBS that has a lot of OLD stock. But their old stock is getting younger nowadays.

    Glad to see that you still have respect for the quality items- But some of these old parts are getting rare. Even my shop has stock that is kept for themselves- and will sell but you will pay- and pay and pay.

    I have a box full of SPD and some other kind of clipless pedals that came with all the bikes I bought, but I don't know what an ultegra pedal looks like. If you have a photo of it, I can look through my box and would be glad to give them to you.

    They're one sided and, from the top, look like a silver triangle. If they havn't been used too much they'll san "Shimano" on the side but that gets worn off fairly quickly.

    I guess that they used to come as original equipment on some road bikes. They never had the panache of Look style pedals and, being SPDs, they cause foot hot spots for some folks.

    So, like what would you give for a set? STX quality, with a matching rear D/R.

    Don't care about the derailleur. I only want the shifters as spares for my beater bike and the ones that I have are only a couple of years old. Unless you live in the St Louis area, shipping might turn into a factor. I've got some tradeing stock, what do you need?
