Dahon SDG IBeam 34mm Seat Post and Seat

I have a SDG IBeam 34mm Seat Post on my 2005 Dahon Jetstream P8. I would like to trade for a twin rail Dahon 34mm seat post.

I also have a SDG IFlex Seat that I would like to trade for a twin rail seat with springs.

Both the post and seat are in excellent condition.

Will consider other options or offers.

Free 355 front wheel for anyone who wants to come pick it up. Fits Birdy, Tikit, Brompton. Use the email function as I don't check in at Bike Forums frequently. I'm in Manhattan, NY.

I have an older Dahon Mariner that is missing the seatpost and several small fittings. Everything else is free for postage.

Hi, I'd take the Mariner if that's OK, how much is postage to England these days?

Hi Des,
Shipping to England would exceed the value of the bike.

I have the following:

- Brand new 2008 Dahon Curve SL and a spare Schwalbe tube. Looking for a Brompton S type in good condition. Any speeds will do. I still have the Dahon box if you want to take it.

- Excellent condition 406 fixed wheel (32H Silver formula hub laced to a Velocity Aeroheat rim) plus an unlaced new 32H Velocity Aeroheat rim (this one is drilled for schrader) and one presta valve tube. Looking to get a pair of Sun M14A 16 x 1-1/8 36H 349 Rims, one Alex 16 x 1.5" 305 Rim and their respective rim strips as seen here: http://gaerlan.com/bikeparts/parts/16wheel/wheel16.html

- Brompton M stem for Brompton S stem

Hey All ~ I am interested in buying or trading for a folding bike. Dahon or B Friday, big points for an internal hub!

I have a 58cm Scapin made from Columbus SP tubing, with 7 Speed Dura Ace and Campy rims laced to Dura Ace hubs. Chrome fork, lots of engraving...message me for details and let me know what you have to trade. Thanks!

Wanted: SDG titanium railed saddle, not too concerned which one, Formula FX, Bel-Air RL etc. but would like it in black.

I have a few saddles I could exchange for that, a Selle Italia Prolink (probably 2008 model) in great condition, a Sportourer Flx Gel Flow Eleganza, an SDG Bel-Air SL (I-beam), and an original glow in the dark Rido.
Given that I'm in the UK I'm not sure how feasible a swap would be, I know there aren't too many UK regulars on this forum.

Pair of 18x1.375 Presta tubes, free to good home

They are marked ISO 32/37-387/400, have 32mm Presta valves and are marked "Q Tubes". Made in Taiwan. I bought the wrong thing and it's too late to return them. I think these will fit a Birdy.

I'm in the US (94965) and happy to drop them in an envelope if you cover postage.

Rack and bag are gone.

Have: Xootr Crossrack + Bag in very good used condition, about 200 miles on the setup, worked great. I lucked into a rear platform rack for my Moulton on ebay and don't need this anymore.

Want: a 52-40 (or thereabouts) double chainring and/or cranks, or Ortlieb duffel, or ???

Raleigh Twenty for nearly anything else.

I have a green raleigh twenty folder here that I never use, with all stock parts except for the missing chain guard. I will consider any other folding bike, or hell, any bike, in respectable condition. Send me a message if youve got anything.

The only real conditions being that the wheels should be above 16" and that it should be fairly lightweight if its a folder; Im looking to use this around a college campus so taking something inside with me has to be relatively easy.

Im looking to trade this really cool Downtube 9 Floding Bicycle. I have ridden it once. I had planned to use it where I am moving but it turns out my Apartment is right in front of the bus stop and it takes me where ever I will need to go. It is maybe 3-4 months old and has been in my room since. Its 9 Speeds with 20" wheels. If you want to know more about it please feel free to ask. I am kind of a cycle noob so I don't know what specs you might want to know. Please PM me for Trades..

Have: new, never installed, 16" Planet Bike Freddy front (just the one) fender, still in packaging with hardware. It's this one: http://www.amazon.com/Planet-Bike-Ha.../dp/B000NQGNNE
Seeking: any 17" tires or tubes, small hand levers, long reach nutted brakes or ???

I'm just north of San Francisco if that makes a difference. Thanks.

I will get a pic sometime, but I have a 56cm Trek 1000 roadie that's just too big for me (non folding, full size roadie) that I would LOVE to trade for something like a Raleigh Twenty (or anything really that's appropriately sized to my 5' 8"). My bike rides and shifts great, has less than 300 miles on it although it did spend a couple years at college, which gave it some scratches from locking.
