Anyway, if you work with cottered bikes and would love to have a 2-minute solution to press-out/press-in cotters, VAR07 in nearly mint condition (stickers still intact) on the 'bay right now. $150 OBO before shipping. I'd kick out an offer for $120, and it would put this well within value-versus-price territory. But I doubt it'll last very long at the current ask price.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/233726730846
Just a quick note: Seller was kicking out offers this AM @ $130 to everyone watching this item. I still have no doubt they would probably go a little lower and get you in the door at $100-120-ish.

I wouldn't bother mentioning it, but it's just such a handle, indispensable tool when you need it. It legitimately eclipses any other removal tool/method I've ever used.

Tempted to throw an offer out and donate it to one of my two nearby co-ops that's always pestering me to bring mine in, but I'd miss out on free parts bin picking if I did

That press would be on its way to me right at this moment, but the town and state just sucked me dry for my new truck registration. No sales tax here in NH, but they give you a royal shagging everywhere else. If you saw my property tax bill, it would have you walking funny.

I sold this bike last week to this seller for about $150. I say "about" because it was one of the bikes in a bundle deal I gave him.

This bike was on local (Philly) Craigslist for $100 bucks. I missed it by a few hours, sigh. Now I see that it is up on Ebay. It's badged a Sterling, which the internet says is early Bilenky, which makes sense for Philly. Certainly looks the part.

Yeah, but I bet when you sold it, it didn't have "Magic" rims.

The guy works at a weed grow facility. Offered me some free "nugs". I'm thinking that when he reads Mavic, he actually DOES see magic.

considering someone here is asking $500 I would think that is a better deal! That is more in line with value.

There are great deals here every once in a while--and this Trek would have actually fit me. Already sold, of course.

This PX-10 would fit me too! Already restored, probably wouldn't interest anyone here for the money, but just thought I'd post it for the eye candy. (That Simplex RD looks like it might actually work . . .for a while.)

Vintage Hozan Truing Stand. A lot of cast iron and made solid. I think this is overpriced, however, perhaps the seller is willing to come down.

Hozan Truing stand on Craigslist NY

You will also have to come up with an adapter to hold a bicycle axle. I have seen these with cone shapes on the axle screws. That would fit into the hole for a quick release skewer. Perhaps a reverse cone would work for nutted axles or just a 3/8" counter bore.

Interesting truing stand.

Iíve been having that happen a lot lately, you look at something on eBay and shortly you get a 10% discount or reduced price offer. Crazy

Auction below is about to close in an hour with no bidders. Local pickup only, but ... holy crap can't believe it's not selling.

Last year or year before, eBay introduced a new feature that lets sellers w/listings meeting specific requirements to blindly send offers out to everyone with that seller's item in their personal watch list. I've tried to use the feature on various things I was selling, but it seems either I or my listings didn't meet the requirements.

In this case, I understand the VAR 07 above landed in the hands of a fellow BF'er, so it'll be in good hands!
