As my stand is now, I can only clamp on smaller diameter tubing. It looks like yours will accommodate larger tubes. Did you acquire a longer clamping screw for your stand?
Ralph
Nope, mine is as bought. I haven't tried any really thick frames yet, but did put a modern Schwinn MTB with pretty thick aluminum tapered top tub, and it fit just fine. Wondering if yours is a different model/generation or maybe has a bad thread/stuck?

as a shout-out of thanks: delicious gave me a box of spare parts and a few tires (local PU in Berkeley) so want to thank him publicly and note how generous he is!
Thanks!
There's a good chance I will have "leftovers" even after I pick over what I'm keeping and offer the rest to local friends and local co-ops, so...if I DO watch this space for some.
I'd prefer local PU too but...we'll see.

Another kudo to Warren in SF who had first offered 2 free wheels (Campy hubs with Campy tubular rims) that went to another CVer but he replied to me that he had a couple white saddles and ended up giving me one of them for my friend who's been unable to find a replacement for her beloved, but totally BEAT, white Turbo.
Thanks again, Warren!

Free for postage is a pink and white jersey. I guess Carin Cosmetics and Colnago sponsored the team it was made for.




It measures 21 inches pit-to-pit and 31 inches from the top of the collar to the bottom of the tail. I got it a few years ago from Robbie Tunes (still around, just not on BF). I've never used it and likely never will.

I had a similar jersey, same sponsor, years ago but it was too small. This sounds like it will fit perfectly. In other words: I would like to claim this

Damn, it took a long time to find this thread again!

Many thanks to smontanaro for the Carin/Colnago jersey; it fits perfectly, and will see its first ride soon after I come back from WA with my bikes. Only one more week to go before I'm reunited after nearly a year away from them!

I'll be bringing back some other bike-related stuff, and probably clearing out a jersey or two which will be offered here instead of the FSOT thread. Stay tuned.

Stronglight Solida H7 crankset, 170mm. 52t outer ring, 42 inner ring. Some gashes on the NDS crank where the spindle meets the crank arm, but nothing serious. No cracks as far as I can tell. These are going to go to the co-op after a week if there are no takers. Free as long as the taker pays postage. PM me.
Update: taken

Dirty but solid SR Apex crankset, 170mm. 52t outer ring, 42t inner ring. It came off a Motobecane Grand Jubilee that ended up being an unsalvageable basket case. Taker pays postage. These are going to go to the co-op after a week if there are no takers. Please PM me.

Some chainrings. 130 BCD Shimano Biopace, 52t outer and 42t inner. 110 BCD Campagnolo, 50t outer and 34t inner (please note, these wouldn't fit on a Shimano crankset for some reason, one of the chainring bolt holes is off; maybe proprietary Campy drilling). These are going to the co-op in a week if nobody takes them. Taker will be responsible for postage. Please PM me.

(heavy sigh ! )
How often do I wish I was on that side of the world :-)
FWIW , I was talking to a BMX collector (aka bike nut) the other day .
He mentioned that those SR cranks off the motobecanes are sought after by the Bmx restorers .

Sherman,
I think you and I are both of an age that $ doesn't mean as much as doing the right thing for our fellow man. I have a wall full of accolades from various organizations, but they taken with me to Starbucks will not result in a coffee less than $5. But sending $ to Doug's friends will somehow help me feel better about our BF brethren . Smiles, Professor Peabody

I so much wanted this one to work!





Pearl Izumi convertible windbreaker jacket with zippered, removable sleeves. Size large, burgundy color matches my Medici - but:







If the pics aren't clear, a PO didn't get one end of the right sleeve zipper into the slot, and as a result, the zipper keeps opening up from the bottom end if fully-zipped up. In use, it will definitely unzip over and over.

If anyone believes they can fix this, you're welcome to it. I received a refund from the seller, and they told me to keep it. Can't use it in its current state, and I will simply **** it up if I try to force the zip open. Perhaps you might have more finesse, or have solved this issue once or twice before? Anyway, free for the cost of shipping. It could feasibly be used just as a vest, but losing half its functionality makes it a no-go for me.

Measurements: pit-to-pit: 23", bottom of collar-hem: 29"

PM if interested.

* Edited to add more info.

DD
