i started putting a bike together from bits and freebies etc. bought a few bits and nearly did it for less that £75. when i say bith lying around, most were from bikes that i bought to strip ie £150 ebay kona donated the goldtech rear wheel and xt thummies. the rest of the parts from the bike were sold for around £150 so i value the wheel/thummies at zero.

anyway, here it is/was

My one day sale!

Each could have been bought for less than £50 (not the highest quality but they all sold)

Managed to find more bits in the same skip today...
Tioga black alloy straight bars
Deore LX rear mech, but a bit scored and missing bottom pulley
Pair of SLR/STI brake levers - one of the STI mounts cut and filed off, but no biggie, as I'd do that anyway for the XT thumbies.

Total so far - £0

Yay!
