Goal is still to be down by a lot more but the Rossi and Jubile were worthy of adding. Just means a couple of former keepers gotta go in their place.

Big Bird is now headed out the door for sure and I've added the pair of Gitane mixtes to the list. That puts the hit list at 6. That's not counting the 3 I'm dropping off today. Almost forgot "Dave", the '67 Varsity! Make that 7, that will put me at N-8.

Wait a minute....... I forgot the Traveler I gifted my D-I-L and the VooDoo I just sold. I'm down THREE and will be at N-10 soon.

We need a James Brown "I Feel Good!" emoji!!! Guess this will have to do.

It's so odd, the elation that comes with bikes leaving, that nearly rivals the elation of bikes coming in haha.

Great work. Not only does it free up actual space, it frees up mental space as well. I always need a few projects banging around to keep me engaged, but I find that too many is no good. Excellent job!! Now we just gotta work on this weird Raleigh fascination that jdawginsc has recently become afflicted with. I think he caught the bug from cudak888 . Fortunately I recently recoverd from it and there are currently no more Raleighs in the shop

Fascination is not the word. Itís more like walking closer to the alligator to get a better picture of it on the riverbank.

I have no doubt that it could become a keeper after the treatment I have planned for it, but more like an N+0 bike for my sisters house in Charlottesville.

8 hours away should keep the Raleigh germs away except in little doses.

There are some surprises in store that should improve it overall.

At least itís isnít a Motobecane, Peugeot or Schwinn...hee hee.

Well, the LBS was very appreciative of the bikes I dropped off but when I mentioned "Varsity" they got a scared look and asked if I had brought them. You should have seen the look of relief when I said no LOL. Looks like Big Bird and Dave will have to take a different exit.

Next up is my 2019 Trek 520. It's a nice competent bike, but the issue is that I bought the frame and built it to my taste. Ten speed Campagnolo Racing triple gearing, a SON hub and lights, Velocity Dyad rims with fat Herse tires. So I can't sell the bike as is; I'll want to strip the Campagnolo bits and wheels. It's not going to be easy to sell a half-naked trek frame.

it's a good bike but I built it as an errand and wet weather bike. And as much as I hate to admit it, I'm just not interested in riding in the rain much any longer. So I think this needs to go.

I'm starting to come to the conclusion that my collection is just crap. Well, I mean other than the Guac and maybe the the Trek 930 (which is already sort of 'meh'). Half my bikes don't even fit me (mostly too small), a solid percentage of them are literal garbage (you know which ones) and would look right home sitting next to the bin on trash day, most of my slightly nicer bikes (like the Ironman) are total mixmasters, stripped of paint, non-original, complete mutts.

Which should make them easier to part with. Which has me excited. I'm going to take this slightly depressing state of things and try to use it to my advantage by going out there and trying to sell, probably for cheap, the bikes that I look at and release the biggest 'SIGH' over.

In my head is a grail on every hook, but somehow I woke up and they're all just Huffys

What size is it? I'm sure that would be one people would be interested in. I have a 730 Multitrack but it is a bit small and would love to find a larger size.

I am not sure what the official Trek size is, but I prefer frames that are 55-56 cm.

And as it turned out I just spotted a Claude Butler frame for a stupid price on CL about 7 blocks from me . . . . I may just turn that into my utility bike. Love English 531 frames!

LBS is taking the 2 Gitane mixtes, I swapped the Panaracers on Big Bird for some Kendas and cleaned him up to put him up for sale and got a bunch done on the '67 Varsity. Had hoped to have it done by today but obviously that didn't happen.

Thats the problem with my personal bikes. There ainít a bad one in the bunch. Condition, maybe, but too many cool ones.

Luckily I have a utility trailer full of bye-bye-bikes before I need to move onto mine...unless the Raleigh disappoints of course...

That's my challenge as well. I only look for bikes that fit me and that is want to ride. I generally don't buy bikes to flip or just for their parts.

Too big for me... sounds like the bike gods are smiling on you with the CB frame. In this thread I'd call that a forgivable oops.

The 520 is a nice frame, why not put it into the Doesn't Fit thread and see what is out here in the forum? Smiles, MH

Reminds me of when I was a volunteer firefighter and the wives would have a garage sale every spring. They would be buying each other's stuff while they were setting up tables the night before the actual sale. Sometimes it seemed like we brought home more than we sold.

How is that any different than any swap meet you've gone to, expecting to unload a bunch of bikes and parts? 🤷‍♂️

Wow, i just noticed this thread for the first time. Right here on C&V! What are the odds? It puts me in mind of a "Friends of Bill W." meeting on a cruise ship.

I have thoughts and questions, but have to go out and prune some apple trees now.

Great thread - Recently, the bicycle count in my garage is up, but just passed forward a Ti Litespeed few days ago .
Looking back, I passed forward:
- hybrid Trek FX7.4
- another hybrid Trek FX7.2
- road Tomasso Tiempo (was a brand from Colorado. I think is no more, and was my first road bike)
- Sekai GT2700 - it was my first commuter, but was a bit bigger and heavy...
- Centurion Ironman - was a bit big for wife
- the Litespeed Firenze

Current:
Nishiki Tri-A, Centurion Ironman (building), Centurion ProTour15 (commuter), Trek 7.4FX, an e-bike, Bianchi Vigorelli, and another Centurion Ironman (frame only that I am thinking on rebuild)

This Trek Mystic is in amazing condition and cleaned right up. The original tubes and rim straps were bad so I swapped new rim straps, tubes, and Bontrager tire onto it along with new brake pads and brake cable.



This bike received the tires from the Mystic and Amazon hand grips - ready for a new home. I dropped the price $30 and hope to move it along.

Oh and I built this up from a $20 Fb frame find and the parts stash. It’s going to a friend that I got into cycling since I moved back to central Ohio. 2000 Yukon SE that came with 3x8 Acera derailleurs, vbrakes, Suntour SR 3x crankset, bars, and stem. It cleaned up great and will be done this weekend when he brings me the chain, grips, and seatpost. This will replace a1994 Hardrock as his cruiser. Yeah, it's definitely lighter.

Yesterday, I helped a widow and fellow club member go through her late husband's bicycles and accumulated parts. She'd already sold a few of the most valuable bikes online, and was looking for help with the remaining items. After putting aside everything she wanted for her bikes and saving the items of sentimental value (including several tandem rally plates), I helped in loading away a whole small car full of components, tires, wheels, and accessories for the co-op.


Not everything is shown. Hey, the truck is still under repair.

Plus three nice bikes, which can be seen at Rusty Spoke News

As I loaded the final items, I could sense her emotions. Sadness as part of her past life was taken away, memories of riding... and relief in getting half of her garage back.

Important work to support her in that process. As one who has spent a good part of the past 20 years doing that work in various settings, thank you...
