Today, I received a package from Drillium Dude as a start toward building my Appel frameset. The parts are in as near perfect condition as anyone can ask for and I'm pretty close to starting the build. I'm pretty excited, to say the least! Thanks again, DD!

A friend from the GWN is building a US bike. I'm receiving his build parts. Today I got a pair of $350 carbon tri bars instead of the $15 bars he ordered. From a low feedback eBay seller.

Just received a nice set of universal extra brake calipers. I really like the different look of these.

Good news: Got some Sheldon Fender Nuts in the mail yesterday.
Bad news: Still have two or three problems to solve before I can run fenders.

The bottom Suntour Cyclone with the long cage arrived today (sold without the mounting bolt). It will go toward replacing various rusted, gnarled, and/or bent bolts on the top unit, and also give me a long cage option.

A Nervar crankset from a Schwinn Sports Tourer. This is planned for the Super Sport that Poguemahone got me recently - a winter project. Start with building up the Super Sport I rode back in 1971, then make a few other changes I wanted to do at the time but couldn't.

Received Mike's (puch's) oversized 46 shoes in the mail. They fit, maybe just a touch bigger than my Vittoria 46's. Problem is, now that I have a set of older style shoes with the older style cleats - I realize my size L toe clips are much too short [maybe another reason I never liked toe clips].

So now off the the WTT thread.

Back in the day we used to place spacers between the pedal and cleat to obtain a better foot position, up to about 8 mm, beyond that and the strap moved too far forward on the foot.

That may be my fallback position, but I don't think even 8mm is enough.

A pair of NOS Diacompe non-aero levers with gum hoods for my Nishiki Seral. Nice. As soon as the bars arrive, we can start putting her together.

I agree Gaucho but I am wondering where the pics are? Also unless Repechage is going to use 50% of them right away I think this definitely classifies as hoarding.

repechage doesn't do photos. You say "hoarding" like it's a bad thing.
