I couldn't even tell where the wheels went on George Jetson's mountain bike frame.
Thanks for clearing that up.

Pair of Veloflex Roubaix tubulars. Ribble was selling them for less than $75 ea shipped
Idéale 2001 saddle to go on the Team Champion. Yeah I know the UnicaNitor is correct, but the Idéale was cheap.
Set of Lyotard pedal caps
Mafac rear hanger.

A bill from FedEx for duty on the last batch of UK parts. First time in a decade. Every other (more valuable) package was handed off to the USPS, no duty. Buddy who ordered at same time got his USPS, no idea why FedEx got this one.

I sold some frames that were just sitting here, along with an older aluminum version of the similar frameset.

Also, I put together bikes for a couple of guys and it was even steven.

Just ordered tires, grips, seatpost and saddle today.

I've been waiting on these from England and they finally arrived. It's a replacement Sturmey Archer "Sport" headlight lens and chrome ring, along with the rear lens & ring. I'm p*ssed that they sent it all in one envelope, which I asked that they do, but the carrier Pitney Bowes, charged twice on my account. I won the rear lens on a Friday (got charged for shipping) and won the front lens on the following Monday (got charged for shipping). I emailed the seller, but who knows.

Oi!, those colors are quite "Groovy".
A great idea on how to compensate for the not so good aesthetic effect that welds on tubular stems like that has.

This: Vulcanizing Rubber Cement, in a decent size tube, not the ridiculous 5g tubes that come with all the patch kits, and dry out shortly after the first time you use it. I had several old tubes that had punctures, but both of the patch kits I had, had the rubber cement tubes dried out, so I couldn't patch them, despite having about 9-10 perfectly good patches. This tube is 6X the size of the ones in the REMA or ParkTool patch kits, and the glue is the exact same stuff.

I already repaired 3 tubes this afternoon - and the glue tube still has at least 80% of it remaining.

Nice! I find it best to save up a bunch of tubes that need patching and do them all in one go. I always make sure I have a virgin tube of glue with the bike so I'm not dealing with a dried-out tube at the worst possible time.

As for me, I ordered a couple complete RX100 rear axle sets from Loose Screws and they came:



Nothing too exciting, but when you have a system you like, it's nice to have spares.

FYI, I just found out that O'Reilly Auto Parts carries this Xtra Seal vulcanizing rubber cement for $2.50 a 1 oz. tube - so I overpaid for it.
