    ok i need these things for a build:

    -cheapo used/oem take off cross tires- something like 700x30 or larger. i'm not real picky on the model or what the tread design is. the cheap $10 kenda cross tires would work.

    - pair of touing tires, again 700x30 or larger..used is great..i'm not real picky on the exact model of tire

    - older "sport touring" triple or mtb triple..preferably something cheap and older


    i'm sure i'll think of more. i've got some random stuff to trade if you are into that.

    edit: i also need an italian threaded bb. either loose ball cup/cone or cartridge is fine. at this point i don't care if it is a campy or shimano bb. it just has to be square taper.gone

    does anyone have any brake drop bolts? (http://sheldonbrown.com/dpdropbolt.html) i bought an ultegra front caliper, but it won't reach. i know you can make your own out of a reflector, but i'd like to avoid making my bike any kludgier since i aready put on a quill adapter so i could have a pop-top stem.what does he commute to clowntown on that thing

    the levers i have, rsx, supposedly have a penchant for breaking. something about a spring flaw. i disassembled them cleaned and lightly greased the whole sherbang and carefully reassembled them and they don't always work. :/gone

    Nope. But the saddle! I think it's yellow and red and blue. Perfecto!MC Chunky Ice in da howse

    The Guerchy requires:

    Quill stem, 22.2 on bottom, 26.0 on top, shiny, under 100mm long (70-80ish ideal)? Old and European-looking a plus.

    Anybody got somethin'?Think you're escaping and run into yourself. Longest way round is the shortest way home.

    ^let me check. How nice are we talkin'?[all your base are belong to us]
  10.  
    How nice do you got? The rest of the bike is Campy/Mavic/Galli, so I'm willing to spend a little for a stem that won't be the poor kid at prep school. That said, a basic silver one will be fine if that's all I can find: I just wanna ride the damn thing.Think you're escaping and run into yourself. Longest way round is the shortest way home.

    if anyone has a cheap beater "track" frame, like an iro/kilo/windsor/khs/whatever i would probably be interested.

    emphasis on cheap and beater. scratches/rust/dents are all fine, as long as the frame is buildable/rideable and is not bent or something.

    i usually ride a size 56 or so bike. i know iro has funky sizing.

    thanks

    and if anyone has a brooks saddle lying around, i'm probably interested in that too.gone

    I've got one of those. I think they're a 40. If you want a 110mm Bontrager race lite stem with it, I could work that into the deal.The kid's gotta learn that the game never lets up.

    1/8th" wide vs 3/32nd" wide. A 3/32nd" Chainring/cog will work with a 1/8th" chain, but not the other way around.dongpincher 1000

    Nicole, I'm not positive, but I might still have the chainring that originally came with my Pista (I think it's a 2003, gray bike, black ring). I'd guess that it's the same BCD that you need, but if I remember correctly it's a 48 tooth, not a 49 tooth.
