Just bumping this to top by asking if I saw one of you (above) today.

I was sitting on the seawall in Frank Kitts park at lunchtime and a San Andreas rode past - Twice! The kids were in tow, looked like a fun family cruise.

In case there are lots in Wellington, this particular San An had Judy SLs, Salsa Flip-Offs, and was of the same 93-ish bent dérailleur tube era as my own.

Was it anyone on here?

Sorry not me. I wish.
Anyone picked up any nice old stuff recently?
I've just been selling of late 2 x Trek y frames and a K2 4000:facepalm:
There will be more bikes to come I'm sure.
Regards
Rich

Thought this thread need a bump. Been on RB a while but not seen this thread, though I have possibly bought stuff from several of you and also registered my Pace RC200 with Rich in Welly.

Got into mountain bikes in 1990, not keen on much that happened after 8 speed came in. Having said that daily riders are 2002 Pace RC200 F8 and 2002 Santa Cruz Superlight, both with modern 1x10/1x11 gear.

Also got a couple of Kleins, an 85 Fat Chance, Marin Team Titanium, Fisher CR7 and Montare (CR7 in a shop in uk), Serotta T-Max and a pile of other Marins, DBs, a Kona, a Schwinn, a Scott G-Zero and random stuff. Most are in pieces for easy storage, but a few riders. Any other NZ retrobikers out there?

Finally, sorry for not getting in touch with richiemurray about 1" forks (trademe) only found the brace yesterday.

Hey mate,

To be honest I've not been on here for a while, but great to see this thread back up and running. Your fleet sounds amazing!! Almost worthy of a show room for us here in NZ! Get some pictures up for us to have a look at.

I'm based up in the Waikato now but used to be Wellington. Think I had a few dealings with Rich when I was there.

Cheers

Hey Guys,

Been awhile since I posted here too. Generally just check the MTB for Sale forum.

Given that there's only a small retrobike group here in NZ and that there's little worth while stuff on trademe I find I get most of my stuff from the US & UK. Delivery charges from nzposts youshop service are ok but I really have to get a few things at once and consolidate the parcels to make it worth while.

So on that line, if anybody else is looking to get anything from the uk then I'd be happy to share the youshop delivery - i.e. consolidate the parcels and share the cost of delivery. There'll be additional delivery once it lands of course but still probably cheaper than separate international charges.
I'll put a post up here whenever I'm buying in the UK or US in case anybody else is also looking for items.

Case in point I just put dibs on some xt m732 gear from the uk. So if you're looking to ship something soon and want to cut your cost let me know.

Also picking up in the thread from a couple of years ago, I also note that there's only a few of us in Auckland so if any of you guys down the line sees something on trademe for sale that your interested in then I'd happy to collect locally and organise shipping for you if required. I do note that most of the good stuff seems to be in chch tho.

Lastly, if your garage is like mine you might have a few frames and lots of odds and ends lying around from donor bikes. Anybody interested in starting a karma list between us here? e.g. I seem to have STX FD's that seem to be breeding in the bottom of the tool cabinet, gripshifts that are spawning in boxes, and RS Judy's that are multiplying in the racks...
