what year is it? can I put a rack on the front, as in the 2011 models? and what are you looking for? or how much do you want? (not that I need or want a new CC but I am convinced I should have a bought a size smaller)

I'm pretty sure its a 2009 version, which means it doesn't have eyelets on the fork.
I'm looking for shiny VO parts, a leather saddle, panniers or some other kind of bags, bicycle tools, maybe a front rack as well.

I think the forks are all the same size, so you could take your current fork (if its the 2011) and put it on this CC. I think that's the only difference.

I'm looking for about $320 worth of trades. Post once more and PM me if you'd like.

I don't think I have $320 worth of spare parts. Just my panniers and Brooks Flyer and I love those. I've been looking to trade in my 56cm for a 54cm. It's going to cost me about $200, $150 for dis-assembly and assembly of new bike + $110 depreciation on my 2011 frame minus the cost of a new 54cm frame which I've found for as low as $405. I'm going to post a thread about the idea later. I'm just waiting for an expensive repair as an excuse or maybe a new awesome color.

I've got a few items I would be willing to trade.

I have a Timbuk 2 messenger bag with shoulder pad (it's the really large size)


Also a Velo Senso Sport saddle with cro-mo rails and air suspension




I also have a Transit trunk rack (water resistant) and a seatpost clip-on rack, which I think is Transit as well. I can supply pics of these last two if anyone is interested.

2 Kenda Quick roller Sport tires 700x28 with kevlar beads and go up to 85 psi

Stuff I'm interested in:
26" mountain bike rigid fork with 1" threaded steerer
under seat bag with quick-disconnect hardware
handlebar bag with clear map pocket on top
Suntour XC Pro grease guard wheel hubs, or other Suntour XC Pro mtb stuff
whatever else - you have something you think it cool to trade let me know and I'll consider it

I wish I had cool stuff, but hey, I just started biking. And, out of my novice knowing of bike stuff, I went out and got a shock pump thinking the high psi were to get pumping faster, whoops!

I have:
Topeak Pocket Shock DXG Fork & Shock Pump with gauge

I want:
A bottle cage
Any speedometer computer

This thread seems large for my little trade type items, hehe.

Still looking to wheel and deal that Large Banjo Brothers mess bag. No takers this time, I guess I'll have to either put it up on the local CL or just give it to the local co-op.

Want- backpack (1500 ci's+), trunk bag, smallish panniers (heel strike issues), or XL windbreaker. Could use lights as well.

Want:
Avid BB5 or BB7 Mechanical Road Disc Brakes

Welp, my Campy Ergos aren't pulling nearly enough cable on my Tektro Disc brakes. I even tried the Problem Solvers Travel Agent but still no bueno. Before I drop some coin on new road specific discs, I wondered if anybody here had some kicking around....

Also looking for a rear rack that will work with 700c wheels and is disc compatible.

I have assorted parts and frames available for trade. Mostly road / cross stuff.

I have a 700x35 Panaracer Pasela, brand new. I bought it for my wife's bike and it's too wide to fit in the frame. Good roadish tire with a lot of tread. I need something similar in a 700x28 or 700x32 if anyone has one.

I need to get my own pile of parts photographed.

I have to trade:
Avenir Metro panniers as pictured on my bike below-

Amazon page here.
Used for about 4 months, in great shape, just need to be cleaned off a bit (which I will do!).

Blackburn Voyager 2.0 front light (this is a 'be seen' light) - Amazon page here.
Used for a couple of weeks before I upgraded to a minewt, this is my backup backup, so it's been sitting in my toolbox for months.


Some things I might like to trade for (in order of desirability):
808HD Jumbo or other key fob/small/helmet video camera
Work stand
Microflate (or similar) & CO2 cartridges
700c x 30-35 tires w/tread or studs
Small air horn
Cable lock

Or offer whatever you have, I might not know I want it yet. I'm willing to throw in some cash if your stuff is better than mine
