Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Boston Sale/Blow out, fixed & single speed stuff

This Sat & Sun, May 26 & 27, 12 Noon - 5 PM, I am setting up to sell off whatever I can as I am leaving my workspace. The address is 5 Wadleigh Place, Boston, MA 02127. There will be at least fifteen or so fixed gear and single speed rides for $50 to $300. Also, tons of parts, all in bins, so there will be a treasure hunt feel to the sale. Lots of cranksets, chainrings, various hubs, road bars, a zillion stems, some 3 speeds, choppers, cheap BMX bikes, cruisers, etc. A bunch of carcasses for building up tall bikes or whatever. This is stuff that has collected over the last several years that I use for building up second hand bikes. Most any offer on some stuff will be o.k., so might as well come on down and check it out.

SAT & SUN, MAY 26-27
12 NOON - 5 PM
5 Wadleigh Place
Boston, MA 02127

My workspace is right by the Andrew Square T stop, on the Redline, 2 stops after South Station.

If driving:
Take exit 20 if going up 93 North, turn RIGHT off the ramp and take your first LEFT, onto ELLERY ST. After the white triple decker house, you will see a brick building that has 1 Wadleigh Place on the side of it. Enter the parking lot and you will see the pile of bicycle stuff.

Take exit 18 if coming by 93 South. Follow the off ramp signs to Massachusetts Ave. At the lights @ Massachusetts Ave. stay in the LEFT turn lane, turn LEFT onto Massachusetts Ave. Follow it up to a fork in about 200 yards, take a LEFT @ the fork onto Thedore Glynn Way. Follow the road as it swigs to the left abd at the next fork, take a RIGHT onto Southampton St. Follow Southampton St. past 2 setts of lights. After you drive over Rt 93 at the 2nd set of lights, look for the First LEFT, ELLERY ST. After the white triple decker house, you will see a brick building that has 1 Wadleigh Place on the side of it. Enter the parking lot and you will see the pile of bicycle stuff.

Sorry if this isn't the proper posting place, but I figured that it would reach some more locals that may be on the look out for some single speed stuff.
