FC, you can have my RF HS spares for the cost of posting if they're any good to you. Just hit me up with a PM if it's of any interest to you. ;)

I stripped the paint of one side of the rear stays so far.
Since then been with a magnet scouring the garden grass for small fragment of metal strands of the wire brush as it disintegrated. Kids not happy as they cannot use that area now. Think I got most of the shards. Note to self, do not use old bbq wire bushes.

Going to order some new bottom bracket bearings (61903 I think, for the Specialized one (White industries made).

have plenty of parts and what not to put on it. Few are exact period, but close. Tempted with some M952 mix on it. Also bought a syncros post for it, breaking from my Kalloy tradition. But by default bought 27.0 like most my other posts.... it needs 27.2 of course :lol:
