Venturing back into the land of the living after a forced break from normal-ish life.
So, i've bought a 2000W Corsa B as a project car and would like to acquire some spares/donor car if possible. Anything from 1997 (P) to 2000 (W) is preferred. Please see pic of actual car below...
These are surplus to requirements so would rather someone use them than let them gather dust. The bolt-on rear can be used with disc or rim brakes and comes complete with a 7 speed screw on cassette. The front is QR.
Both have Quando hubs and smooth running bearings.
Time to sell this as it doesn't get used enough, just look at the condition of it.
Spec is :
Santa Cruz Bullit 17.5 inch
Hope 8 Disc brakes
Hope Fat Boy Hubs
Mavic 521 Rims
Easton Riser bars
Marzocchi Bombers Mr T triple clampers
Good evening all,
Is there such a thing as i'm building a Saracen mtb as a road setup.
I have the chainset, a RD via baj and 7sp brifters, so only really need this now. Am hoping to spend around a tenner-ish.
Thanks from Sunny Wales.
Some parts that i've acquired over the last few months that I wont be using so time to let them go.
26inch Rigid forks, A-Pro dated 1998. Nice condition, look as if they've never been fitted. Few marks from storage but very usable. 1 1/18
V brake or...
It's time to move these on due to me now having no room at all.
Firstly the wheels. Matching pair with unbranded hubs, plenty of life left in them, ideal for a winter or hack bike. Bearings are smooth and free running, rims run straight and true. Both QR, 100mm front and 135mm...
Good evening all :)
Someone please have a word with me, heart-ruling-head will be my downfall, I tell you.
Saw this advertised locally (10 minutes from baj's house), so went to view it. Ended up buying two bikes and making an excellent new contact.
To be honest after looking at it properly in...
Just thought i'd share this as it's been rather an interesting build, due to the fact I have limited experience and knowledge of U Brakes. This has taught me a lot in how robust they are but their rarity in comparison with Canti and V Brakes throws up new challenges for me...
Hi everyone :)
I'm plodding along nicely with my 88....Trekker build. I've started cabling up the rear mech and come across this situation.
The gear cable is really close to the U Brake, should it be this near to it ? The plastic BB shell cable guide is worn alas I don't have a triple unit to...
Good evening all,
I'm after one of these for my Trekker build. I managed to purchase a FD earlier off this forum, which was a nice surprise, so maybe I can find a RD too.
I'm also seeking a 1 1/8th Quill to ahead adaptor stem.
As always, thanks :)
Good afternoon all,
I bought these for a project that didn't come about, so they need a new home.
Rear wheel: Shimano FH-M475 hub with SunRim DS2-XC 135mm. Kenda Nevegal 26x2.1 folder.
Front wheel: Unbranded hub with SunRim DS2-XC 100mm. Kenda Blue Groove 26x2.1 folder.
Both wheels come...

Evening all :)
I have these in my possession, 1 set I've had for years, the bitsa set have just been removed from the handlbar of the 91 Muirwoods I purchased the other day.
I wont use them so karma they are, just postage cost to you.
1 of the allen bolts has a slight bend in it but still...
Good afternoon all :)
I've just bought this.
Yes, bought it.
I did it to save it being scrapped and lost forever. My heart ruled my head but now it's safe with me...for now.
Is it too far gone to restore ? I have a Muirwoods already so this I feel is a breaker. It has 200GS groupset on it, the...
Hi all :)
Does anyone have a pair of Shimano U Brakes in their spares box they'd be prepared to sell ?
I need them for an upcoming Saracen Trekker project.
As long as they're complete and function ok i'm interested.
