Antone got anything dead cheep? 1-1/8th A/head, quite short steerer......

:?:


..... the steerer is about 180mm.

Yours for free if you can be bothered making them pretty, or at least respectable.


Runs off to find measuring tape :D

180 should be fine though.


Yours if you want them. Just need to work out how to get them to you.

Of course if you wanted to give a present in exchange, I'd wave the postage :D

Almost shamefaced to admit this, but my current project is to build up a nice folding bike. The 26" wheeled Dahons seemed pretty good but pretty dear, but now I've made the breakthrough of finding where I can get a NEW frame for only £75 posted the project is good to go...

( Get them here BTW http://www.dahonspares.co.uk/html/dahon_spares.html - good prices in general, e.g. Ritchey flat bars £8 )

So my requirement is a threadless rigid 1 1/8" fork to suit, not suspension corrected, for a 26" wheel. Anybody got anything along these lines...?

I'm after some 1in steerer suspension forks, ideally some flavour of marzocchi but i'll consider just about anything. Anyone got anything?

Im needing a red ck headset Eck[for you know what] and possible a set of forks,maybe a set of Z1's.
I have a 2001 either 80mm-110mm or its 110mm-140mm,cant remember which marzocchi fork that needs brake bosses as its the one that the lower legs separate from the brace.Im still stripping it ,it also needs powdercoating and new seals,looking at 60 or 70 quid to get them renovated[air fork so will need O-rings also :roll: ].Might be a better idea to just get something im more familiar with :?
Other than that,i do believe i want for nothiing :shock:


Can i ask here because to be honest the XYZ thread is a bit of a failure.

What are a set on very nice conditioned m900 xtr cranks worth :?

Damn! They would have been worth a fair bit but they don't have the decals anymore, doubt they're worth any more than a tenner.

Shame 8)
