That raises the interesting (to me) question of, what's the most efficient packing method? Discard the rim, and put the hub+spokes rotated all parallel into a large enough shipping tube? Hub in a small box, spokes in a tiny shipping tube?

Not interested in the wheel, just geometry.

My spoke supplier puts a bundle of spokes in a plastic bag and then puts that in a bubble envelope. I think that's about as good as you can get. So this is not really a problem.

Literally "saved from the dump". A POS trunk rack sitting there with a shopping bag tied on the side. Seemingly no one looked in the bag. It contained a couple of bungee cords, cargo straps, unopened tube patch kit, a pair of barely used white Christophe toe straps and a pair of chromed toe cages and this. I've no need for it so Pay it Forward.





I was able to zero the trip meter but could not test the odd as there is no band. You'll have to figure out what size is needed. You'll see that it does have the wheel attachment which looks like it clips into three spaces between first spoke crosses. Just the thing for your Gitaine or Moto restoration, eh?

Will fit in small USPS flat rate box.

Oh, there was also a nice Performance wood handle, dual head floor pump sitting there. Works AOK and the gauge is accurate. Not a bad "Saved from the dump" day.

Earlier this week I posted some things that were going to the scrapyard from my co-op. I pulled out a few "for parts" items that may help someone out. These are two Shimano shift levers that I saved. Free for cost of postage, Probably $5. Smiles, MH

Both appear to be 105 era shift levers.

As I continue to try and clean up here in the shop I have a pair of fenders that were take-offs from a Trek 720 touring bike that had frame damage from a front end crash. They are taking up space and nothing here is in need of fenders. Free but cost of shipping probably about $20 but less than a pair of new ones. Same old rules, first to PM is first in line. Smiles, MH

Reasonable condition and all hardware is there. Both front and rear.

Calling all Canucks: 5kg of treasure / crap

I have a Canada Post flat rate box that I will fill with up to 5kg of treasure. If you have a Canadian mailing address, send me a PM and I will put your name in a random draw to receive the treasure, gratis. Cutoff for entry is 6pm MDT April 4, 24.

This picture partially shows some of the treasure you will receive:

Free 56 c to c, 56 tt Davidson frame. Columbus, I think, Cinelli BB.
What’s the catch? It’s got rust on the drive side seat stay. I could get it fixed, but the fix plus paint is more than I want to put into this. I can’t (yet) put it in the dumpster so if there is someone who wants to fix it or always wanted to try their hand with a torch, here’s your chance. You pay shipping.

Would that be filler possibly or is it rusted through all of the way and weakened?

Beginner's wheel building kit

Have you always wanted to build your own wheels but didn't know how to get started? Are you embarrassed that Kyle, the son of your riding buddy Eric doesn't ride bikes unless forced to, but manages to keep his dad's wheel's true? Well, if this is you, have I got a deal for you! For the low, low price of shipping, you too can learn to build wheels for fun and profit. Here's what you get:
  • Not one, but two 27-inch hookless rims (ooh! tubeless!), one Weinnman, one Kaga, both shown to be flat (though probably 40 years old) on my table saw
  • All the galvanized spokes and brass nipples you need for the front wheel and most of the galvanized spokes and brass nipples you need for the rear
  • A matched set of New Star high flange hubs (not new, old)
  • An almost matched pair of Shimano skewers
  • Feedback Sports one-arm truing stand
  • No dishing tool! (You read that correct–buy your own dang dishing tool.)

Johnny, show the folks what the lucky bidder gets.

Just look at all the nooks and crannies for spoke wrenches, wayward nipples and spoke prep.


The spokes and nipples for the front wheel have been cleverly attached to the rim so you don't have to sort front from rear.


I'd never heard of Kaga before (apparently neither has Velobase), so you get to do your own research on this extremely rare rim.


The rear spokes are sorted left v right, but you'll need to pick up a couple at your LBS or co-op.

That’s a nice deal for people without anxiety...very generous.

Mavic MA40 27” 36h. Not fabulous shape but plenty of life left. Got to get it gone because it keeps tricking me into thinking I have a pair of 700c MA40s. Free for shipping.

Box of Stuff draw

I just received a nice flat rate box from Stevensb as the winner of his draw. Some really fine bit's and bobs like an Ofmega sealed BB unit, a new looking Cinelli 2A (I believe), a triple crankset, Campy 8 cassette, tools and more.
I'll be certain to do the same for our North of the 49th members. $24 sends 4 kg of stuff across the country.

Awesome Brad.

Available: Shimano 105 cranks, chain ring, cassette, rim brakes

Available: Shimano 105 cranks, chain ring, cassette, rim brakes
Does anyone want - Shimano 105 brake set, crank/chainring, front mech, cassette and rear mech - for rebuilding an old bike??? And is this the right forum? Took the pieces off an old broken carbon fibre Trek road bike frame and have no use for the components. Seems a waste to junk them into landfill. You can have the wheels as well.

- Front and rear mech. Shimano 105
Cranks. Shimano FC-1055
Chainring. Cassette.

- Front and rear rim brakes, and levers. Shimano SLR-S (? or SLR-5?)
- Wheels.


I’m in Melbourne, Australia. Free to a good home, but pls pay postage.
