What have you been hanging onto?

A couple years back as part of a box of mixed components I found this:



To my surprise the content of this box was not what I expected.



Two have never been used and are in like new condition minus some shop wear smutches. The third one has some nice patina.

It's been waiting for that special build, who knows when that's going to happen.

What have you been holding onto?

I "was" hoarding a C-Record headset, only slightly mutilated, that I scored cheap awhile back. It's now on the Miele, with a cheap fork from an Atala (at least it's Italian). I dunno what the heck happened, to the actual Miele fork, but it's steer tube is a good 2 or 3 inches too short, so useless for this bike. But everything looks great, on this particular build, and the fork/headset spins smooth as butter, so I'm happy (for now).

Dura Ace 7400 freewheel hubs laced to Matrix ISO tubular rims. I've had them for a few years now. Every once in a while think about buying some nice clinchers to lace these too, but then I think "someday soon I will try tubulars"...

Campagnolo MTB stuff, slowly, slowly collecting it towards an all-campagnolo MTB. By the time
I'm done it will probably become a
garage queen, since everybody says the old stuff is horrible. Plus, I'm having way too much fun on my CX bike off road, without the drudgery of small wheels and flat-bar wrist pain.

I'm only hoarding a few things:

NOS Campy 41T 144BCD chainring



NOS Campy 1978 Super Record RD with alloy pivot bolts



NOS Campy 7-speed alloy/TI freewheel - on right (sorry, but I have no plans to build a 14-speed bike)



NOS pair of OMAS sealed-bearing hubs; I don't have any plans for these, but they were a great deal received from Kurt:





4 pairs of NOS, in package, Binda toestraps (sorry, no pics)

The rest of the stuff in my Box O' Spares is earmarked for three future projects.

I also have a pretty comprehensive collection of cycling shoes. Most of them are my size and either in use or in the pipeline to be used one day. However, I do have a few that are too small for me, thus are for display purposes. The nicest of these are a pair of Sidi Titaniums (34), maplewood-soled Dettos (40) and a neat pair of early-80s Marresis (34).

Here's a pic of the Dettos:

My "extra" Chris Kvale frameset.

I acquired this with a large qty. of Campy parts from the owner a few years ago.

He had it built to his dimensions, which is making for a real challenge to find a new owner.

I've been in no hurry.

I have it on the wall in my bike workshop and it is fun to gawk at the beautiful lug finishing from time to time.

I also have two other Chris Kvales that fit me perfectly and are my nicest riding road bicycles by a margin.

Campy hub parts, I have a lot of cones and races.

I've stopped hoarding parts as I've found most everything is readily available and everything I thought I'd never acquire again I have. My big sell off began last year and I haven't looked back.

This NOS Shimano 600 crankset, date code F. It came to me in the original box, but minus the original 52-tooth chainring--I've since used the 42 somewhere. I'll never use it on one of my own bikes, because I pretty much need a triple or wide-range double where I live. I've floated it as trade bait a couple of times, but somewhat to my surprise no one has ever been interested. But it does add some luster to my parts box.

I've been hanging on to way too much based on a glance around the bike room. Things that come to mind that I am actively "Hanging on to" are a pair of Red Hetres in the bags, a Klein Stage Comp frameset, and a few pairs of tubulars + rims.....as they say "I'll get to it eventually"



Hey Jim, I'll ride those Lyotard pedals for ya ;-)

i'm hanging onto a nearly complete build kit for a 1940's - 50's era French bike like my Mercier:
- Simplex Tourist 303 and Super Champion chainstay-mount derailleurs
- Rod-actuated Simplex front derailleur
- wood 650B wheels with 4 speed Cyclo freewheel
- Simplex chain guard
- Lyotard pedals
- spare rando bars
- MAFAC tandem cantilevers
- MAFAC regular cantilevers
- Spare JEAY and and WONDER roller-cam style brake calipers

a few various other bits.

i'm willing to sell to someone who wants to use them in a restoration project though.

I have a couple of Sturmey-Archer 3-speed hubs in the parts drawer. One is 63, the other is 65, I think. Also a Campy headset that I've pirated the balls out of. The rest is mostly junk. Well, aluminum junk.

A NIB Stronglight A9 headset with French threads as a backup for my Moto. Then there are bits I have no business hanging onto, but can't let go for some insane reason. Like the French Campy SR BB with pitted cones that came off that bike. I had a notion that maybe some day I'd find new cones to press on the spindle. I don't know if that's even possible, and it's very unlikely anyway, as I don't look for them. And even if I found them I'd be reluctant to use that old ti spindle. Thanks for asking.
