    WANTED: R7000 shifters and/or SS (short cage) rear mech

    As per the title, really! Before I buy new from ze Germans, who seem to be about the cheapest, does anyone have either a pair of R7000 shifters or a short cage (SS) rear mech that they're looking to offload? Must be black rather than silver and in good condition.

    2011 Cannondale Six Carbon

    Not sure if I'm posting in the right area, or even if the year falls within permitted limits, so please delete if I'm in breach. I'm looking at buying a 2011 Cannondale Six Carbon to replace my crash-damaged 2010 CAAD 8. I'm familiar with the Super Six Evo, but the 'non super' Six is a new one...

    Just wondering if anyone on here has ever refurbed a pair of the original XT SPDs? In particular, did you manage to replicate the white 'SHIMANO' logo on the outside face?

    WANTED: 1998(ish) 32h, 8sp Shimano hubs. NOW SORTED

    I'm on the lookout for a pair of 8sp Shimano hubs in 32h flavour (I have an already-bought pair of NOS 32h rims to lace them to) for my wife's 1998 Kona. The build is mostly based around the blue-grey M570 LX (she likes the colour...) so that would be the ideal, but 737-750 XT or 950 XTR are all...

    Chain compatability

    I need a chain to finish off my retro build and have always been a fan of Sachs-Sedis (so now SRAM) over Shimano. I'm struggling to find a decent quality 7 speed item though; will an 8 speed PC870 work OK?

    WANTED: 14" steel Kona frame

    I'm in the market for a 14" Kona frame as a project to build up for my wife. Preferably with Project 2 forks but not a deal breaker. Not too fussed which model and cosmetic condition not overly important as it would likely end up being painted or powdercoated anyway, just no dents, cracks or...

    Can anyone identify my Peugeot?

    My restoration project on my Kona MTB has got me thinking about doing something similar with my old Peugeot road bike. I had it passed down to me by my Dad in the early 90s and I believe he'd had it quite some time by then. I pulled it out of the loft yesterday to take some pics, which was the...

    1994 Kona Fire Mountain restoration project.

    A few months ago I bought a 1994 Kona Fire Mountain when it came up for sale local to me and at a very reasonable price. The bike itself was in a pretty tired condition to say the least, but I didn't mind as it was so cheap and all I actually wanted was the frame and fork. The plan is to have...

    Magura HS33 compatability query

    I want to use my Magura HS33 on my Kona build, once I've had the frame refurbished. The boosters have a small amount of corrosion on them and I was wondering if the Evo 2 boosters (like these http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/mobi ... lsrc=aw.ds) will fit? My boosters are the older, rounded...

    1993 (I think!) Marin Bear Valley

    I've finally got round to taking a couple of pictures of the Marin Bear Valley hanging in my parents' garage. I was gifted the bike in around 2003/4 by a work colleague who had it as a commuter but was leaving for Canada and didn't want the hassle of taking it with him. I was fairly well...

    WANTED: 74mm BCD granny ring

    My brother in law was knocked off his bike the other day and said bike is totalled. Because I'm a nice chap, I'm giving him my old '93 Timberline commuter as a stop-gap. I've stripped it down for a deep clean and service prior to handover and found the granny ring has a big buckle in it; I guess...

    Gear and brake cable set

    Does anyone have a source for reasonable quality but inexpensive cables? I need a full set of gear and brake inners and outers to build a bike up to sell; I'd be pleasantly surprised if the complete bike fetches £75, so I'm not really keen to spend a third of that on cables!

    Groupset photos

    NOW SOLD Hi, I have an FC-M730 XT crankset with 46-36-24 SG (not Biopace) rings and 170mm arms. Does anyone want to do a straight swap, my 170s for your 175s? We can do a straight swap complete with rings or just the arms if you prefer, although the bike tart in me would prefer silver rings to...
