Shimano XT M735 short cage rear mechs x2.
First pic is the best condition one- there are slight scuffs along the parallelogram front but apart from that no scrapes and jockeys only just starting to show wear. Threads are all good with no seized bits and pivots have no play. Jockeys are original. Use cassettes no larger than 28t size.
The second pic one isn't as tidy as the first. There is a line along the bottom of the parrellogram and a scrape to the left of it. But the jockeys on this one are near perfect. There's also a scrape over the frame attaching bohlt and the plastic cable tensioner isn't original. Mechanical condition is the same as the above.
£15 and £13.








Shimano XT Dearhead M700 front mech.
Pretty excellent condition, the Dearhead logo is a bit scuffed plus there's a tiny scrape above this but nothing else to speak of. Mechanically all's well, no play anywhere and all threads are good, the cage does show a good bit of chain contact scoring but has years of life to go. Clamp size 28.6mm. Bottom pull.
£10.





Shimano XT M760 rear and front mechs.
Near excellent condition for these. The rear mech has slight scuffs to the ano finish But these might not show in the pics. There's also a small scrape over the frame attaching bolt. Jockeys only just starting to show wear. Threads are all good with no seized bits and pivots have no play. Jockeys are original and the rubber chain guard is still there. It's a nine speed mech. The front mech has no model number on it but I've checked on the 'net and it is. Some scuffs from frame fitment but that's it. Mechanically condition is the same as the above, with the cage showing scuffs to the finish from chain contact. The frame attaching bolt isn't original but has the same conical head shape so fits fine. Top or bottom pull. £17> £15> £14 and £5> £4> £3 - or £20> £16 together.









Simplex MB2600/MB2601 Silver Range thumbies.
Some people will get a shock seeing the above title that describes some Simplex kit as thumbies, but here they are:) Yes, no ones ever heard of them making anything else but road and touring stuff, but these thumbies prove they did have a fling with MB kit- they obviously thought it wouldn't take off:) Anyway, these are clearly quality items, and although not indexed they do have a decent retrofriction action. They're also not just chromed steel, but actually something called Zirconium, so not as heavy. I think they'll only have travel enough for seven speed gears, so probably best used with older MB's. Condition is excellent, the chrome is very shiny and all there and there's no marks to the bodies. All threads are good and nothing's seized. Standard bar clamp size.
£12.







Shimano Exage M520 chainset
A less common grey ano'd Exage chainset. Condition is very good with a small amount of heel rub on each crank, no scrapes etc. Threads and tapers are all good. Chainrings are not original, although the outer one is a nice alloy Sugino. Teeth on all of them are excellent. Crank length is 175mm.
£10









Shimano M520 SPD pedals
A nice set of these pedals. A bit of the paint has worn off from either side of the platforms but they're still pretty smart. Logos and black paint on the sides only show scuffs on the corners. Bearings are nicely smooth with plenty of grease in there and they don't need servicing. Tension adjusters aren't seized, and other threads are good.
£5.





Titec seatpost.
Very little usage showing on this. No zigzagging and only a few scuffs around the logo which probably haven't been picked up in the pic. Clamp isn't damaged and all threads are good. 28.6mm diameter. 36cm length.
£5.



Shimano MC18 rear mech.
A low end rear mech but in very nice condition. A few slight scuffs on the faceplate and a scrape below one of the pivots, and that's it. Jockey wheels hardly used. Chrome on the jockey cage still very shiny. Mechanically the pivots are tight and there's no seized bits
£4> £3





Ascent stubbie bar ends.
Stubbie bar ends which show little usage besides some scuffing on the left hand one. Fit standard bar size.
£2> £1



Shimano Exage 500LX M500 chainset
A less common one of these Exage chainsets. Condition is very good with a small amount of heel rub on each crank, no scrapes etc. Threads and tapers are all good. Chainrings are not original, although the outer one is a nice alloy Sugino. Teeth on the outer and granny rings are very good condition, there's wear but it's not obvious. Middle ring is excellent. All are alloy rings, inner and granny are the original Biopace oval ones, middle is a replacement and not oval. Crank length is 170mm.
£13> £11







Shimano LX M560 rear mech
There are scuffs to the paint here and there but it's not too bad. Jockey wheels only just starting to show wear. Threads are all good with no seized bits and pivots have no play. Jockeys are original. The only real thing to note is that there's some cosmetic damage where some goofball has drilled a hole going through to the pivot bolt probably to oil it:) This is reflected in the price.
£3







Shimano Exage 400LX M400 front mech
This is a pretty rare one of the Exage models front mechs. Very good condition, there are scrapes along some of the painted edges but it still looks pretty tidy. Mechanically all's well, no play anywhere and all threads are good, the chain cage only shows a tiny bit of chain contact and chrome on the outside is excellent. Clamp size 31.8mm. Bottom pull.
£10> £9





Ritchey seatpost
Very little usage showing on this. No zigzagging and only a few light scuffs to the ano finish which probably haven't been picked up in the pic. Clamp isn't damaged and all threads are good. The ano is matt not shiny and does show some staining from grease where it's been in the seat tube. 30.4mm diameter. 37cm length.
£6> £5





Specialized seatpost QR clamp
Not much to say about this.there are some scuffs to the finish but it still looks smart. All threads are good. 31.8mm size. It's alloy.
£3



Kalloy quick release binder bolt
Can't see any marks to the QR rubber or chrome on the other bits. A nice chunky binder bolt. Looks long enough to fit most frames. All steel.
£2



Amoeba seatpost
A 90's NOS seatpost but without the packaging. Has been stored properly though so no marks on it. Pretty rare and quality seatpost with matt finish. Diameter is 26.8mm and length 40cm.
£10> £9







Tahoma seatpost
Another 90's seatpost but this one's used. Some zigzagging marks up to near where the X logo is but they're pretty faint and can't be picked up in the pic. Matt finish except for the clamp area. Also a rare and quality seatpost. Diameter is 27.0mm and length 40cm.
£6> £5







X-Lite bar ends
Bar ends with dark pink ano finish. A good bit of scuffing but not too bad and the colour hasn't faded.
£6> £5





Tranz X bar ends
Bar ends with chrome finish. Don't see these ones too often. Some light scuffs but they still look quite new.
£5





Acor combi platform/SPD pedals
These are the platform pedals with SPD compatibility on one side. Not much wear on these but they do need a clean. Bearings nice and smooth after being serviced.
£6> £5





Tioga City Slicker tyre
A NOS 90's tyre which still has the tiny rubber moulding sticky out things along the top showing. Just a bit dusty from storage. Size is 26 x 1.25". These are getting rare in this condition.
£12> £10





TRO brake levers
Not sure if these are Tektro levers? I think the labels have come off them. All in getting condition with no scrapes and threads are good. The only thing to mention is that one of the cable tensioners is not original.
£2> £1 or free with something else.





Unbranded QR seatpost clamp
a green ano seatpost clamp- I can throw this in with anything else bought. For 31.8mm seat tubes. Perfect condition, no scuffs anywhere.
