Found this chainrings on a garage sale, Not much info other than the one on the engravements.
First 2 chainrings are Sr Suntour 46 t and 36 bcd 110 chainrings. They have other numbers engraved which I don't know if is the model or the serial number.
The smallest chainring is 74 mm 24 t Granny ring made out of 7075-T6 alloy, but no idea about the brand.
It has also the engraving B/P which I don't know that it stands for.
How valuable are those chainrings?

Looks like there may not be a lot of action here, however I am looking to let my 2014 Pipedream Sirius frame set go and wondered what a ballpark figure might be.

Size small (I think, or Med, the smallest one) 853 frame in the red colour, slidey dropouts, 135 QR rear (but Boost plates available), designed for 26"/27.5" but I have only ever used it with 650B, normal threaded BB, tapered head tube. Would come with Hope tapered headset, X-Fusion RL2 fork (normal QR front) set up to run 650B and with remote lockout, X-Fusion dropper post and Hope seat clamp.

Condition is good, it hasn't had a massive amount of use and has been regularly serviced, however the fork and dropper post haven't been serviced, I'd suggest this might be on the cards. It's a fun, retro looking modern bike, I really liked it, but want a 650B+ and with a large number of retro bikes taking up space I can only have one modern bike.

Another retrobike member would lke to do a deal outside of eBay for this wheelset, but I've no idea what it's worth. Any ideas? I've seen prices vary wildly: one set of blue anodised ti-glide rear and fatso front went for £220 on eBay the other day. They were non-disc versions. ... 1555.l2649

Hi, i have the following bike i built myself from parts back in 1998/1999.

It's in great condition considering its age and I am looking for advice on how much its worth as I wish to sell it.

the frame is a 17" Merlin Cycles frame (MALT1 I think) with a full 1998 Shimano XT groupset including hubs and bottom bracket, the v-brakes are 1999 non-squealing models.
Pace Forks, which have half spring and half air. I have the pump for the forks and the Pace grease gun for the grease-ports too.
it has a Syncros stem and seat post along with a WTB Momentum grease-guard headset, X-lite x-country riser bars, Mavic SUP X-517 rims which were built by Merlin Cycles with the XT hubs. Can't remember the name of the brand of spokes but i can assure you i spared no expense when ordering them...

please excuse the saddle but my wife used it a couple of years ago to help with a running injury - hence the Fatboy tyres.

the bike would be shipped without a saddle and with IRC Mythos XC kevlar tyres instead, which are in brand new condition but are year specific.

I also have 2xNOS boxed V-Brake pads for said 1999 XT V-Brakes, plus an X-Lite non Q/R seat clamp which will be thrown in.

Any advice please?

how much is my mate's alloy santa cruz V10 worth? it's about 2009 or so I think, fox 40s, hope Moto V2s etc. aesthetically well used but rides tight (he's an ex pro bike mechanic)

ballparks would be good, I've got no idea about something like that!
