French heartbreak (for me, anyway) on eBay

For anyone who likes French componentry, and still has money in pocket, check out the great stuff that gabilier95 is auctioning, starting Monday morning/early afternoon (depending where you are in the US):
http://shop.ebay.com/galibier95/m.html

Yes, his starting prices are high-ish, but I've bought a few things from him, and have always felt that I got my money's worth. I wish I could afford one of those TA cranksets!

He had some great old Simplex derailleurs recently as well. I've got my eye on a few of those rings. Maybe if I'm the only bidder

That guy has an amazing collection! Wish I could have gotten one of his Ideale saddles but they command a premium.
