Christmas in May?

I got a small package I've been anticipating for several days.



It was kind of like Christmas in May. The pix in the eBay auction were pretty bad, so I just took a chance on it. I was pleasantly surprised. A (mismatched) pair of Campy flat lever skewers, a pair of Simplex skewers, a Rhode Gear Flickstand, half of a Campy Record downtube shifter. The Shimano crank puller looks quite beefy. It accepts a large allen wrench (maybe 12mm?), so when needed you can (carefully) apply a lot of torque. I'm taking my Medici up to our summer place tomorrow. One of those AFA pump clips went on it just after the picture was taken so I can have a pump on the back roads.

I do have one question about the Park Tool wrench. It looks like the handle part of a crank puller, but if so, it's missing the doodad that engages the crank threads. The threads look very coarse. It has no part number. Any thoughts?

A Shimano FC-B124 BioPace triple crankset. It's used and the pictures make it look worse than it is. It's going on my 1992 Specialized Hardrock Ultra to replace the 200GS riveted crankset.

Ahh, Be Oh potch Ay! Hehehe, sorry couldn't resist. That is a very worthy replacement for any crank ending in GS. It will probably be a good bit lighter too.,,,,BD

All I got today was a tiny little ring of brass. A shifter collar bushing for the Miata. Looking forward to having a functional inner shift boot as well. Now that it's beginning to warm up, you can really feel the hot air flowing through the interior even with the top down. The inner boot should stop all that. Yeah. more car stuff.

Here's the boot, and then the shifter collar bushing. Sloppy shifting begone!

@ Bikedued - yeah the GS is BioPace also. Haven't had the bike for long & only paid $45 all original & original owner, so not bad. I haven't really noticed the "oval-ness" during pedaling, but I'm a recreational rider & don't go all that fast either.

Friday's UPS truck brought a 1973 Raleigh Grand Prix set up as a town bike with upright bars, basket, and Brooks from an iBOB member.

Well, here are two things that showe up in the mail for me today. I'm excited about both of them.

The first is one of those things that every Norman owner lusts for, but rarely finds at the price he wants. So when this showed up and looked like it was attainable I gunned for it and managed to get the high bid. The bicycle this was on was actually a Holdsworth, but the gentleman that owned it was named Norman, so the chainring was a natural for him. The second item also belonged to this same gentleman, who was a member of the Cyclists Touring Club in England. This was also taken off his Holdsworth bicycle as were a set of GB Hiduminium brake calipers and pedals that I won off eBay.

As an aside, I have fifteen consecutive years worth of CTC Gazette magazines (1958-1963) and a handful of them from the 1920's. Also, I've managed to obtain a couple years worth of Cyclist Touring magazines from around 1964-66 time range. If you have a particular topic you would like to research, let me know and I'll see what I can find.

Yeah, it is a pretty ring. There is a little wear on the ring, but the pictures make it look worse than it is. Believe me I'm far to lazy to put a chainring on a bicycle just for pictures. Once it's on, it'll get ridden.

That is a pretty clean crankset you snagged. I think BioPace gets a bad rap. The Norman chainrings are pretty rare compared to the garden variety Williams rings, so snagging this was a big win for me, since I own three Norman bicycles.

@ Photogravity - I bought this crankset to go on a 1992 MTB & wanted to keep the same "flavor" for the bike. This crankset is silver vs black and weighs almost 1 lb. less. Plus I can change chainrings if I want - the other crankset was riveted.

i will keep my eyes open for some "Norman" posts.

Yeah Skip. Crank puller. But which one? No idea but, the business end looks much larger diameter than my two ended Park puller.

Yes, looks the same as my Park CCP1 crank puller because of the chrome finish, but like you said, the threaded portion of the wrench looks a bit bigger in diameter It seems to be bigger too than my CCP2 puller. I wonder if it could be just the angle the pic was taken that's causing the difference?

Finally broke down and purchased those pesky little parts for a Chorus brakes set that facilitates the Aero configuration. Those little parts that are often missing, and were.
Also broke down and purchased those little toe guides for the Campy SL pedals. They arrived yesterday, what was today. Two more items off the list.

It's the handle section of the old Park double-headed (22mm/23mm) crank puller. The shaft does have a coarser thread than the modern iteration. Too bad you're missing the business end, though...
