Couple things for trade. (Phil, Ultegra, blah)

Also posted in the MTB forum, but seems like this applies just as well here. Apologies for the redundancy.

You guys don't appear to have a trade thread, so I'll just throw this out and see what happens. The BB is FAR too wide, I just installed the thing and realized I've been smoking way too much. (Trust me, looking at a freshly installed BB that's almost a full centimeter too wide is not the best time to have that thought.) I'm a little guy, so what is an irrational Q-factor for me is likely small fries for someone around here.


Have: Phil Wood BB, stainless steel, 119mm (R+4). Installed, heavenly, buttery, single-digit miles, way too wide.

Want: Same but <111mm. Maybe something comparable? (Still want the Phil BB, but if it takes a few jumps to get there....)


Have: 2002 Ultegra Triple (V1 spline), 175, well-scratched, ~5000 miles touring. Middle ring is well-worn, inner and big rings are close to untouched by chain.

Want: Ultegra Double (V1 spline), 165-167.5, whatever cosmetic condition, rings unimportant.

Thanks for reading.
