    WTD: M950 left hand crank 175mm VGC

    Hello Anyone got one? Could be tempted to buy the whole chainsaw depending on price. I’ve got a set already but the left hand crank is a bit scuffed so looking for a set in nice condition, left hand especially. Thanks! George

    XTR M950 cranks

    Hello Arms only is fine; I have a set already but the octalink has worn (after 20 years...) and they knock on the axle. I can re-use the rings, just need new arms. Potentially only one side but I guess people will be selling pairs. Needs to be nice condition with little rub please. Anyone? GB

    Found - wide, flat 25.4 bars

    Hello Whilst I'm all for "cool" retro, some bits make all the difference to make these bikes actually usable and a lot more fun! I've been hunting for some wide flat bars in 25.4 (660mm+) which of course didn't really exist in the 1990s... I found some by a company called Toseek on eBay from...
