Wanted: Dahon 33.9mm SDG I-beam seat post in black (UK, London). . . have a couple of lightly used (i.e not at all worn) 20x2 Big Apple tyres to swap. Would also be interested in swapping them for 16x2 Big Apples.

Oh, there's also a glow in the dark Rido saddle.

And I'm also trying to get hold of a 25.4 or smaller inline suspension seat post (preferably in black). . . it's a size/style combination that appears to be almost non-existent now but I need one for a particular mod. Post Moderne still make one according to their website but I can't find it stocked anywhere.

HAVE:

Kevlar tires compatible with 16" wheels (349, Brompton/Merc size). Never used.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5177/...220dca3c8a.jpg

WANT:

If these tires are a good fit for you, send me a message with your mailing address and let me know what you have that might be a good fit for a Brompton Enthusiast. I am also in the market for a nice Time trial/ bullhorn handlebar.

Thank you

Wanted: Birdy Expedition Rack to fit Birdy Silver.

Have: New, never mounted R&M OEM fender set to fit later Birdys with latest swing arm(mounting hole is higher than previous).

PM me if interested.

Thanks

philski 03-16-11 02:07 PM

WANTED: the frame latch from an early Dahon like the Dahon Classic III, California, etc, most models pre-1990.

(I have a bike, including the retention spring, but missing the frame latch)

Have various things to trade including seatposts, 3-speed IGH, wheels/tires/etc. (folding and not)

Please respond via PM. Thanks!

chagzuki 04-12-11 02:18 PM

Wanted: Brompton front wheel in good condition.

Trade for a pair of 20 x 2 Big Apple tyres in very good condition, no significant tread wear. Or perhaps something else.
I'm in the UK so domestic swap makes sense.

Also wanted: S-RF5 hub or just shell (the non-'wide' version). . . and shifter.

HaChayalBoded 07-24-11 01:21 AM

HAVE:
LOTS of motorcycle gear and accessories.

WANT:
A bike. I'm not very picky, I would prefer a comfort bike or something where the seat is lower than the handlebars. Something to commute with and get some exercise on. With maybe a rack or some room for strapping stuff down or be able to pick up some groceries would be nice too.

I like the fuji marlboro folder if anyone has one of those locally collecting dust.

I'm in Brooklyn but can deliver\pickup.

TribeofMonkeys 07-25-11 09:05 PM

I have a 1994 Montague Trifold (folding tandem) that still looks new and rides excellent. The bike was bought new for over $2300.00. Would consider a nice mountain bike, road bike or ? for trade. I live in St. Louis, Mo. Pictures upon request.

Clownbike 08-08-11 10:12 PM

Have - Minoura RSX workstand

Looking for - Decent quality folding floor clamp type workstand, ala Park, Pedros, Feedback Pro, etc.

The Minoura is a very stable workstand that clamps in the fork dropout and cradles the bottom bracket shell, so puts no stress on any part of the bike. Well made out of square tube steel, it folds and is in very good condition, and has the original box. I'll also include an adaptor to fit Dahon forks. Unfortunately, there's no way to make it work with the GoBike, due to the single sided swingarm.

If interested, PM me.

Swift Folder Frame and Seatpost

HAVE: I have a Swift folder frame with seatpost and all necessary bits, plus a bonus ones-peed fixed/freewheel hub. I picked up the frame (and hub) several years ago intending to build a single-speed out of it, but never did. Now I'm planning to get a (multi-speed) Brompton, so it's time for the Swift frame to go.

WANT: I'm not looking for anything specific -- make me an offer! :-) As mentioned, I'm planning to get a Brompton, and will likely convert it to a 5-speed with a SA S-RF5(W) hub. I'm tall enough to need an extended seatpost, and will likely get an aluminum model to offset the slightly higher weight of the 5-speed hub. I'd be interested in any of those items, or Brompton accessories like a front S bag, cover, B bag, whatever.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/229761/Swift_folder_small.jpg

If interested, PM me. Be sure to tell me what your email address is, as I apparently can't PM anyone until I have 50 posts, and this is only post #2!

http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=225139I have a 1996 Olympic Games Montague folding mtb. It is a too big for me. I'm 5'8". Would like to trade for a some kind of full size folder. What I mean by that is, I want a folder with 26" or 700 wheels.
Bike is in great shape.
St. Louis, Mo to Springfield, IL area.

Want Birdy. Have Upgraded Swift.
 
I would also consider an outright sale for an interested buyer.

I'm thinking for my purposes a Birdy might be more practical, and I've been yearning for one. I bought the Swift new in 2010, and it has many upgrades with new parts, and it is build for speed. The strong points of the Swift I think are well known. Here are the specs of mine:

451 "speedmax" wheels from thorusa
tiagra sti shifters
105 rear derailleur
ultegra crankset
kcnc lite wing seatpost
vuelta 60t chainring
tektro cr720 cantilever brakes w/ "v-brake extenders" from thorusa

All in all, the upgrades make the Swift more costly than most stock Birdy's.

Here are some links to some pics:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/14356569@N07/6881835825/

I can also throw in the stock parts that I had upgraded if you would want those to (ie wheels, 56t chainring, v-brakes, stock seatpost, derailleur, crankset and pedals).

Send me a PM if you have a Birdy and are interested in a trade. I would be more interested in a the new style Birdy, fyi.

hopperja 02-26-12 02:24 PM

I have:

1- a white, early 70's Raleigh 20. It's in decent original shape, and is missing the key that joins the two halves together. It has both thimbles in the fork, something that I've heard is kind of rare and of value.
2- a blue Dahon, not sure what year, but it appears to be a 86 or an 87 and made in the USA (at least it says Dahon, Carson, CA on it). It appears to be complete with fenders, rear rack, kickstand, chain guard (no frame pump though) etc., but the SA 3 spd hub (date 8-86 stamped on the hub) is not hooked up. It has 12" wheels.

I live in Sumner, WA. You can have either or both if you want to come get it/them. I am not interested in shipping them anywhere.

Edit: the Dahon's wheels are probably 16" now that I think about it.

I want:

You to pay it forward.

I like to swap a 5 speed brompton wheel for a single speed or two speed version.
York UK area would be ideal
Nottingham or newcastle could also be arranged relatively easily also.
