get it started

Time for parts selling: click on all images for big! There will be much more coming as I get pictures taken. Including full record 10 kit and Centaur 10 kit.

Reynolds Attack Carbon wheelset, Campy freehub, with brake pads for carbon rims, with Panaracer Statius extreme tires and reynolds skewers. These wheels are incredible, like new, less than 10 rides on them total. $800 complete, or $900 with a record 10 ultradrive 11-23 cassette! Light and aero, 1500g/set.

Campy Record 10 carbon crankset and BB. This is used, but in near perfect shape, arms are a 9.5 out of 10, rings have about 1000 miles on them and many, many more miles left. BB is silky smooth. you won't be disappointed with these. $250 with BB! 53-39 rings, 175mm arms

Campy Comp Triple crankset, 175mm arms, brank new, taken off a display bike. This includes the centaur BB as well. This is campy's current top of the line triple crank and they are truly beautiful. $150 with BB! rings are 52, 42, 30. I've got the rest of a Centaur 10 speed triple group to go with these if you like, all polished alloy components!

Sugino Qualette triple crankset and BB. This is a stunning and fairly rare (in the US) crankset from Sugino. It's from a demo bike, so it did have a chain on it, but no miles on the road. It's indistinguishable from new. 52, 42, 30 rings, 130/74mm bcd. 170mm arms. Beautiful satin silver anno finish (matches nitto components). Uses a shimano Octalink BB, included is Ultegra BB of the proper length. $140 with BB

Coda superlight mtb crankset. 175mm arms, used, cosmetically about a 5/10, but 100% functional and very light when combined with the Dura Ace Octalink BB. These make great singlespeed cranks, infact I will throw in a spot 32t of a race-face 34 tooth ring with them if you want to use them as a singlespeed crank. Cranks & BB complete weigh 690g! They actually look better than the pic would imply due to the camera lighting. $85 including BB!!! that's about what you'd pay for just the BB.

Mavic 637 crankarms. Super rare, super cool machined crank. 110/74 bcd, 180mm length arms. These are used, in good shape, some light scratches in the arms, some scraped inside the drive side arm from front deraileur cage. I do have the original Mavic chainrings for these available if interested. Exceptionally nice cranks, $150, were over $300 new!

Sidi Genius 4 road shoes, size 44. Used, but excellent condition, less than 1000 miles on them. Leather is good all around, just a bit too narrow in the toe box for me. Really nice shoes in a really common size, I'm sure someone can use 'em! $90 Cleats are not included.

Sella Italia SLR Gel-flow saddle, new in the box! Retail is about $150, I'll sell it for $85.

Shimano Standard reach breakset, brand new, but I can't find the box. These are the A-550 model, same as the current R-600 but with a slightly different throw-off lever and pads. $70/set, brand new. Reach is 47-57mm

Tektro R-556 Long Reach Brakeset. These are truly a long reach brakeset, 55-73mm reach. Brand new in the box, $40. Perfect for that 700c to 650b conversion you've been thinking about!

a month later...

Yeah, I know it's been over a month since I wrote here. What can I say, I'm swamped with life right now. I have been getting back in the shop here and there to try and get some work done. Here's proof positive:

Just finished assemblying it last week, really neat singlespeed commutter. Nuevo Richie lugs with cream fills, Moltini Orange paint. really sharp. Phil/dt wheels, Sram Omnium cranks (which I'm really diggin'), shimano long reach brakes, nitto post and stem. All around great stuff for a classy bike.

I've been shipping a lot too. Sold two road frames, just shipped out my 953 frame this week too:

I'm sad to see it go, but it's going to a good home. I'll just have to build myself a new road bike sometime next year, for the meantime I'm down to just the fixie for my road steed, which is fine. I really don't ride much other than fixies anyhow, I think this bike only got about 5 rides total in 2008!

And a little something for the most patient man on earth, Nathan I'm almost done with your chainguard. Here's a shot of it in process:

It'a actually all brazed up and I'm just finishing the clean-up now. 100% stainless this time and built from thicker sheet stock. I will have your bike back to you soon!

I'm still in a selling mode and I'm working on taking pics of the huge stash of parts I'll be selling off. The Green 29'er is the only bike I've got left to sell right now and it'll be going on ebay unless someone want's to snatch it up for a great christmas gift! So watch here for lots more stuff. Sorry to be posting so many things for sale and not writing much about building bikes, but clearing stuff out of the shop has been my main priority for a little while. I'm still in a cash-raising frame of mind.
