    P.I. Riders - Possible Balikbayan 'Swap meet'

    Hey PI riders
    I headed 'home' in May. Didn't grow up there but might as well, I grew in SSF/Daly City, CA...

    I'm going for my cousin's wedding in Tagaytay, some relaxation time in Boracay, and some family visits up in Ilocos Norte (Laoag). In between, we'll be staying in Makati.

    For years, I've been trying to find a Philippine Nat'l riding kit but no luck. My cousin found 1 jersey in Manila but it didn't show the flag on it, just a tag. I want to show the flag/colors loud and proud on my weekend rides and maybe rock it at the local cyclocross races. Fit is part of the problem since the PI sizes are a bit small. In US sizes, I wear anything from a M (if it's cut big) to a L (when its a snug Euro fit), in a 42" chest BTW.

    I thought I might try here and see if anyone's got new/almost new (sorry no beat up clothes please) P.I.-specific gear, clothes or anything else cool. I'm willing to bring some of my own bike components from my spare parts bin for trade.

    I've got things like:
    blue pair of Crank Bros Candy SL's, used but still a lot of life. In box w/ everything.
    170m Campy Veloce road cranks, square taper in new condition, never used
    Tektro road and canti brakes (new)
    various stems, some new
    slightly used jerseys - road and mountain
    various singlespeed/fixed gear parts (I've got wheels but sorry, too big...)

    If there's interest let me know. Probably the biggest I'm willing to carry over is the road cranks, got to save the weight in my luggage.
