You don't need help. You need storage space.

Pretty spiffy, and interesting bar tape too. Any idea what it is?

Pretty cool find. Seems like a sturdy trainer set-up. I have a back wheel trainer and don't really like it. That yellow tape is awesome.

Love that bartape. Easy to clean and usually colourful. I have been working through a few packs of white/blue dot stuff that were still in their original package. Early 90's.

Your bike rocks! Hope you got the front wheel. That old trainer makes an awesome bike stand for wrenching.

Would you want an Shimano 600 arabesque headset to match? I think I saw one at my local bicycle co-op when I was volunteering last time. If you need one, let me know and I will go check for you.

Probably the same as everyone else around here--you can't help it.

Great score on the Trek!! That's a real 80's collection of components you've got; Modolo Speedy brakes, bendy plastic Modolo shifters, Ofmega Mistral crank. What are the rest of the components? The saddle looks very familiar, but I can't place it.

That's an old Vetta trainer - mine had a full-sized pic of LeMond using it. Don't remember what I ever did with the thing.

the miyata made it inside. i swapped the chainrings from 52-42 to 46-38. also its a 6 speed cassette with the screw on little cog. it was originally 13-24 but i have made that 13--15-17-20-24-28 from my collection of ancient junk that no one else wants. i should be able to make it up all the river front hills with that combo and the arabesque 600 drivetrain doesnt seem to mind a bit. i currently have 28's on it and it looks like 32's and fenders would be easily doable. man i am digging this bike!

Needed a wheelset and crankset for an old lugged Kuwahara I'm building up as a commuter. Goodwill delivered, with this wacky '95 Proflex for $25. Super solid STX/Mavic wheelset and a decent Sugino crankset, and lots of other odds and ends to salvage.

Nothing special, but I saved this Mavic Crossmax front wheel from a freebie POS Roadmaster. Nice sealed bearings. Added to my mtb spares:

Got this freebie today. Just your typical Japanese department store bike. I like the color though.

This '92 Bridgestone XO-3 was posted for free on a neighborhood thing, complete except the mangled front wheel with very low miles (original Ritchey tires!). Even though it's one of the less desirable, 700c tig welded XO's, it still has fairly unique geometry with a much shorter top tube than the competitors. I was originally just going to capitalize on the name and flip it but I've fallen in love. I'm gonna put some mustache bars on it and pretend it's one of the nicer ones.

For a feller abiding in Carolina Del Norte you certainly seem to have a penchant for cycles hailing from California. This be one well trekked Trek. Birthed in Wiscoterra, thence to California and now to Asheville! Just imagine if she were fitted with a cyclometer what a tale to tell!.

The business card affixed to the right seat stay comes from a shoppe in Fairfax, California which is the lbs for member @obrentharris.
