Hi guys,
Looking for a few bits to finish the cheap and cheerful proflex453 build.

I need a seat post, 26.4mm, tatty finish is ok, but usable condition please... Collect or post, I'm in Nottingham.

Also has anyone got a 26" rear wheel, QR, for use with a 7 speed cassette... Again good used condition, collect or post, I guess I've got a £20 budget for this ?

Finally has anyone got a 7 speed shifter to match the old XT left hand shifter that came with the bike ?
Can send pic of the one I have if needed.

Thanks guys !

Justin

Hi...thanks for the offer, I'll bear it in mind if nothing else turns up :-)
The bike's for my daughter's boyfriend so I want to make sure it's as right as I can get it on the tight budget he's given me.
Cheers
Justin

Hi, Sounds interesting....have you a photo ?
Is is fairly straight and true, plenty of meat on the braking surfaces ?
Splined freehub ?

Could be an option if looks right...

I have a retro classic Mavic MA40 MB laced to a Suntour hub with a 7 speed cassette included for £20 posted. No QR but if I find one then I could chuck it in.
