Fan freakin tastic! A combined effort, co-operative, colaborative, charitable, contributory, commendatory, congratulatory, coordinated, complimentary, karma project.

Count me in...

I've got Shimano Skewers front an back (from XT hubs, but don't say XT on them).

Red club roost grips.

I wish I had more to give! Let me know if they are any use.

I'll update the spec when I get home from work this evening. Not sure what you want to do about multiple offers for parts. Perhaps you could box whats not used and pass it on next time or bring to MM for fun/spares. What is still needed on the spec i'll leave blank and post on the wanted forum.

What an amazing effort this is so far, I reckon a period build could well be on the cards.

Mazdaman post the diameters ASAP to help people in their search.

Well i was just thinking about what i have been offered so far and i am still amazed. Sinnet177 makes a good point that i might end up with more than i bargained for so i had an idea. I do a lot of cgarity work for The Childrens Trust in Tadoworth, Surrey and i am running the London Marathon for them next April. My thought is to build a second bike with other spare parts that are surplus parts that have been submitted that i cant use because people have already been kind enough with what they have sent. Then we can all take great pleasure in selling it and donating the money to this chairty.

The Childrens Trust helps children who suffer from multiple disabilities and who will need care for life but this helps them to get that care and have a life. Its a real tear jerker when you meet them but they are all amazing and the parents have hearts of gold.

What do you think?
