I happened to go to my local rubbish dump on monday.
I found a almost new Carrera Vulcan, manual discs, suspension forks etc.
Paid £5 for it!
Turned out the frame was cracked and the forks bent, but still a lot of good parts I can use.
Went back today (I'm looking fo a fish tank to house my fish in while their tank is being repaired) and found a DiamondBack Axis, was about to walk past when I noticed the XT thumb shifters!
Paid £5 for it and found out it had:
XT f. mech M730
XT M730 cranks with Specialized rings
XT hubs (smoother than my 2008 Stumpy!)
Onza bar ends - as new
T Bone stem
XT M732 levers
XT M733 calipers
Tange DB frame + forks.
Also a box of other stuff including:
Promex L Chain "Genuine Romany" it's got DID engraved on every link, made in 1986, new.
Couple of Mallard cassettes
Another few chains,
new axles etc
All this for £5
A good day, also Lidl are selling Digital Calipers for £8, not particulary good quality though!
The DB Axis is pre 1990, but I don't know which year, it is white with black storm effect on the front and rear ends.
It weighs about 25lb
Anyone know what they cost when new?
