Longtime lurker, first time poster/seller.

Here's a pair of 175mm AC cranks in red, and a matching APX front hub.
I am finally accepting the fact that I will never have the rest of the stuff for my daydream build, so I am saying goodbye to them.
The hub is a 9 out of 10, cranks are 7.75 out of 10.

Hub has never been ridden, but it was at one time laced radially to a wheel. It feels tight if I turn the axle by hand, but I can't figure out how to service it/am paranoid I'll destroy it if I try. AC appears to still exist, but my emails to them have never been answered. Maybe it's just how these hubs are, but I honestly don't know.

Cranks have seen less than 100 miles, and show signs of normal wear, especially on the arm bottoms and pedal holes, which I have tried to show in pics. All threads are in great shape, and the aluminum spacers for the granny ring are included, but not shown in the photos.

Mostly there's just some built up dust and grime, as these have been boxed up for the last 10 years. The laser etch is a little dingy, etc, but everything is still in good shape.

Happy to provide larger or additional photos if anybody wants to see them.

Asking $225 for the cranks and hub together, but I could sell individually, too, if you only want one or the other - $190 for the cranks, $35 for the hub.

Hopefully I won't scare everybody off since this is my 1st post. I have to attach photos since I can't link to them on flickr either (requires 2 posts and it seemed even shadier to drop in two meaningless ones for that reason alone).

tpilk: would you consider anything in trade for the AC cranks?

If I had a project bike I probably would, but right now I am looking to sell them.

Well if you need a project bike why don't you just ask? How about a Medium Ibis Szazbo?

I am sure I will regret this later, but it's gotta be for sale, not trade.
My financial adviser (pregnant wife) would surely beat me to death with the szazbo the day it arrived.

Normally I would try to intercept the delivery, hide it under boxes in the basement and then work on it between the hours of 2 and 5am, making as little noise as possible until it was finished.

Thankfully my wife is afraid of the bats that live in our basement and hasn't seen the bikes I've managed to smuggle into the house.

I think this is getting a little off topic. $200 special on the szazbo if you can collect it in NYC (frame, headset, rear shock, bb)
