Been a bit quiet lately but today:

100mm Cinelli stem/ bars

Suntour BarCon 7spd bar end shifters

Campagnolo levers

Campagnolo Nuovo Record Strada 170mm chain set

Stronglight chainset

Stronglight rings

Campagnolo rings

seatpost spares inc Campagnolo seatpost bits

Cateye MittyII

and about two dozen fixed sprockets!

It looked like it had all been swept up off a shed floor.

Found a set of wheels to go with all those fixies sprockets but the were far too gone

Why people throw out perfectly usable stuff like this is beyond me.

Yeh, where is this place where people basically chuck money into a skip?

Round my way its decidely dodgy looking old matresses and the occasional tired looking door. (and i live in Cambridge so you'd think there would be plenty of tired old crap bikes to go around, or maybe they're in use)
