probably slightly bad form to ask for Karma directly, but there is a bit of method to my madness....

For 2013 I'm putting together a bike purely out of karma parts, and once complete, I will be raffling it off for free, to spread the love around the Retrobike community... I'm aimin to do this at Mayhem, if it takes place this year, and a build thread will commence shortly, so progres can be tracked..

I have the frame already, as well as forks, tyres, QR's, a chainset, and f/r mechs, all greatly received by RB members. so only really need the following...

26" Wheels
Cassette (depending on what wheels I might be offered)
Shifters (depending on what cassette I might get offered)
Brake Levers for canti's
1" aheadset
bars

I think I'll also be needing a seatpost, but until my new digi calipers arrive, I can't tell you what diameter it might be

Remember, these parts aren't for me personally, they're for a bike that I'm building, that you could win here, soon. If I can build it for £0, I'll be able to give it away for £0.

Many thanks for any support, I know it's a big ask of everyone. But have a rifle through your stuff and see what you can come up with.

That's a mighty grand offer Doug, but sadly my car is dead, so getting over to Cambs is off the cards I'm afraid.. :cry:
