After a long time thinking about it I have decided to part with my pride and joy. It is not getting used and I would realy like others to be getting some joy out of the parts. I will be keeping my frame and hanging it on the wall. More of a tribute than been looked away for the best part of years.

Here is a link to when I restored and put it back together. It all happened here.
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=233083

In this tread I will be asking for selling advice as I am stuck what to do with the wheels. The rims are not retro so should I remove them and sell the Pace and Hope Ti Glide hubs on their own? The rims are DT Swiss XR 4.1 Ceramics. Obviously I know whats better for postage. Just wondering what you guys are after these days.

Also Middleburn cranks, are the RS7s square ad the RS8s splines?

Regards

No, both RS7 & RS8 are splines on the spider and a lock ring.
RS3 are a square fitting and bolts from memory.

RS8 has cutaway sides, that Is the only difference from the RS7.

RS3! Thx for that. My memory is terrible. I can't even remember the name RS3 at all.
