DETAILS & PICS

Girvin Flexstem XST Titanium bar/stem combo – £65
1 & 1/8th quill stem, 135mm reach, slight rise 3 to 5 deg by my eye & with 5ish deg back sweep to 515mm wide bars. I have a selection of bushings. It has a red bushing (hard – used but only buy me) currently installed. I also have one green (soft – might have been used but looks new) & a blue one (very hard – looks NOS but dirty). All in great nick with no splits to them. You can choose which one it will come with. An extra fiver for the other two if you want them with the Flexstem. These will be sold separately if left over when the bar/stem is gone. The bar stem is in reasonable condition with no cracks or bent bits. Has some scuffs & markings but being titanium could be polished out if you really wanted. There however is some small deformations at the ends of the bars where someone has obviously put some bar ends on but no big problems. On my kitchen scales is 580g all up. With the 515mm width someone has also cut the thing down from its original 22inches/560mm. So period correct then. Very clean look when on the bike with controls. So if you would like to reduce the direct steering of your ridged steed in favour of some anti-vib bling. This is for you!

NOS 1st Gen 1 inch Flexstem - £20
New but with some storage marks. Has a green (unused) bushing installed. All steel icon that started it all before silly suspension came in. What a monster.
Image


Onza bar ends £8
In sliver & quite light. They are well use with scratches on the outer edges with the logos faded. End plugs are still in reasonable nick. Have a nice little detail that no one notices - the clamp bolts are drilled through the centre to make them super light.

V-brake Adapters by world Class NOS - £18
These things allow you to use your ubër-expensive CNC’d-artwork cost-a-fortune cantilever specific levers with these fan dangled new liner pull V-brakes. They say that they are for XT or LX V-brakes but look at diagram on back of packet to be sure they will fit your Vs.

Brake arch converter 26” to 700c pair - £28
These a convert 26” wheeled bike frame to take 700c wheels. You mount then on to the brake studs of your frame (this mounting hardware is not included) then mount your brakes on the studs on the arch. Simples! They could do with a polish. Weigh just over 100g each. The rub with these is that one of the studs has been tightened into the arch so that its spring stop hole is at one o’clock & not half nine as the others are. Not a problem if you use brakes that don’t need a spring stop. See pics. You could drill anther hole in the right place if you needed to. They look to take a decent size tire too. The widest part of the arch inertial spacing is 65mm. The narrowest part at the mouth is 52mm wide. Make your winter MTB into a monster-cross machine with some drops.

RockShox MAG 21. Usable but paint on lowers is stuffed– £40
I got these with a Parkpre Pro frame I bought. Looks to be ’96 version (as is the Parkepre) but someone can tell me otherwise. The previous owner has attempted to strip the paint off the lowers. So one leg has had paint striper on it with a section that is rubbed back to the bare MAG. On doing this they discovered what must have been a lovely Klein?? fade paint scheme. So they rubbed the second leg back just to be sure. :facepalm: Just taking off the black home spray job to see what the now ruined second leg original paint looked like. What a waste. Was probably a set that came on a Pulse or the like. At least they were not the ones that sprayed them black. Anyway, rant over. The good news as they appear to work pretty sweet. Some very slight wear on the sliders but only just. They feel great when you depress them, with no stiction on the rebound. Dials seam to work and are not stiff. I have not ridden them so all this is just the typical ‘put my weight on them workshop test.’ Nice working pair for a full paint job or winter hack that wants sorted suspension just as they are. Would like to keep them for rainy day but would just lead to another project. 1&1/8 steerer. Length is 127mm with 25mm threaded. No gattors.
