    WTT: NEW Breezer Lightning 19" frm UPDATE: Pics

    Ok, got the green light, so here we go:

    I have a NOS 19" Breezer Lightning frm. Still bubble wrapped, never built, etc...

    Will post pics asap.

    Now.

    I ride 15-16.5" frames, so this thing is nice eye candy, but I want something I can ride.

    Anybody wanna offer up a trade? I'm open to suggestions... I just want to find a good home for this. (Not necessarily looking for VRC product myself for the Lightning).

    Official 'Trade Only' Thread (no for sale items allowed)

    Yes I know the Gods of MTBr need to get their money but we are more than honorable around here so I'm sure for every transaction made the seller and/or the buyer can send the $2 fee to tame the MTB vault.

    Basically I think at least in this forum we are interested in a bunch of strange , obscure parts that most people don't even know about so the typical wanted adds cast a net that is to wide but not to focus..

    So what do you guys (and also Eric as a moderator) think about this..

    Each person makes a list of the parts he desire so the rest of the community can read and hopefully we can share some treasures in between each other...

    Just a Suggestion, if is dummy or silly I'm sorry about it, but to me at least just make sense...


    Well i put this for debate and consideration of the whole community.

    Well I have kind of a Long list.

    *JP-morgen stems (1994-1998), specially the later models with the JP letters carved on the top ..(yes, yes I'm collecting the money for one all ready)

    * Lawilll fork, (1991-1992) specially the early ones made by Kosman's in san francisco out of cro-molly in 1' or 1 1/8'Thread or Threadless (very uncommun i know)

    *IRD Antidive forks (1995) and any other none telescopic or conventional suspension fork like Leading Axle, basculating hozack type forks.

    *bontrager, tange, syncros, whatever swithblade fork. (Yeah I know dream on)

    *DKG brake boosters (199?) in any color, even just the little "Star" adaptors since I have a few "U" already.

    *Strange brakes, the more linkages the better, just because I like the Funk.

    *Old and odd Canadian made frames like "Off road toads", Funk, and alike.in size 19' to 20'

    *8 speed high quality cassetes (I have 19 bikes, 3 are single speeds, 3 are 9 speeds, because I need to (Tandems, cross bike), the rest are all 8 speeds, because I think is the best compromise.

    *180mm cranks of any era..

    *Tall TALL stems Quill and aheadset in 1' 1/8" (no need to be Vintage) to run drop bars on my MTB's.

    *Fasteners, cams (Yes cannondale force 40) linkages, strange and odd small parts to make prototypes and new stuff out of them.

    Not exaclly VRC.

    *Broken damage Linkages and rear ends of full suspension bikes to experiments with them and use them to make other funky stuff

    *pivots, bearing, bushing, spacers for the same reasons.

    Ps: I will update when I think about other stuff.

    if the price were right

    i wouldn't mind an XTR/952 crankset in new/near-new condition (w/ the 46t, not 48t bigring)...

    some cool canti levers (paul, real designs)...

    or a pace carbon rigid fork, 1", 420mm a/c ("shorty")... {ahem, you know who you are}.

    what the heck-- a bontrager road lite would also get my attention.

    Just like the sig says: I'm after a Bianchi Project 7, 21.5" No need for a garage queen. Can be from any of the years produced. A Project 5 would suffice in the same size, but I really want the P7. Frame/fork or complete, doesn't matter.

    If any one comes across that oddity - for a reasonable price - lemme know!
    Just a regular guy.

    Nice idea all - the final piece, literally, to my VRC restoration is a blue ano Paul front derailleur. I feel like eric sold all his blue ano Paul stuff on ebay a few years back (and got a premium for it!) but someone's got to be sitting on one - or black - or silver - I can't wait to finish the final build so as to post for you guys.

    This is a Pretty crazy idea, but I tell you about as a Option for the future..

    Is bound to happen that I want something that you have, but I don't have anything you want to trade,

    so how about if we establish some kind of "VRC" currency (value by the experts or something) and then you just gain a certain amount of "Credit" every time you send (trade) something that can be redeem using VCR credit to/with anybody else trade object...

    Yeah I know this is kind of crazy and complicated to implement and judge the values, but it if works will be super efficient in the long term.


    Again just thinking out loud.

    In search of:

    Nuke proof 32 hole hubset

    Purple 1 1/8" King headset, oh wait, scratch that

    1902 Pierce Leaf spring fork

    Ti riser bars, (I'm not too picky on brand)

    I'm sure there's other things, but it's a start. I'm a small shop, with a lot of old crap laying about, not too much of the holy grail stuff you west coatsers seem to have under every tree and rock, but hey, hit me with a request, you never know!

    I'd really like to get my hands on a Browing Automatic Front crankset/chainring setup from back in the 80's. You all know the one with the cut rings that used the 9 volt battery to shift from ring to ring.

    Hilarious. There was no debate about this at all. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I just thought it was very funny how the first post said "Let's debate/consider this" and the second post went straight to "here's the stuff I have/want."

    And to keep things consistent, I want...

    -Alpinestars mtb, Cro, Al, or Ti
    -Judy FSX
    -Diamondback Overdrive
    -Syncros Hubs, the original/old ones
    -Gravy built WTB wheels
    -New Paradigm hubs

    I have:
    Two Miyata Elevation 2000 frames, a 13" and a 15"
    1988 Stumpy Team
    1992 Bridgestone MB-3, 17", bone stock
    3D Violet Ringle front hub, various other stuff that I'll add here

    not TOO vrc but a few original WTB SST saddles
    Suntour Supurbe Pro high flange track hub

    A friend of mine is sitting on a few nice pieces (which were mine at one point) including:
    A first gen Specialized S-Works M2 frame with custom paint
    a first gen Syncros front hub laced to a Fir M123
    Koski flat ti handlebar
    an assortment of original Gore ride on cables
    some judy forks and who knows what else, he never rids himself of that stuff.

    Funny things those Straddle Rods. I remember working for a NW parts distributor in the late 90's and we were blowing those things out for like $.50 a pair....and still we were having trouble getting shops to buy 'em. I can still remember selling lots of them to George at Tigard Cycles for pennies on the dollar.

    If anyone's ever in the Portland, OR area try and swing by Tigard Cycles for some treasure hunting. Whenever the distributor I worked for needed to get rid of quantities of stuff cheap we'd call George in Tigard. His shop needs to be seen to be believed, product crammed in every square inch. One time I went to see him in 1998 and I saw piled up on his stairs several boxes of stuff I sold him like 3yrs ago, still unopened. I'd say 85-90% of his merch is crap but there's some retro gems in there, just gotta be willing to dig.

    Come on Do it your self, I'm sure is not that hard, any shop that bend aluminum siding (Calefaction, heating, etc) can reshape the radius of the rim and then you just need to repinned.

    The problem is more about the Holes, but maybe you can find some un-drill or maybe the 36H can become a 32H (If I remenber right that was the way he made them.

    Scary thread.

    I'm at a point for a while where I really don't want anything, but looking at what you all have makes me think I do. And I think all the stuff I have is stuff I want, yet... when I look at what people want, I think, maybe I don't want that as much as I think.

    Rumpfy, stop the madness !!!

    Since we are all putting down our wish lists.
    - I could use 12 of the attachment bolts or nipples that connect a tioga tension disc to the rim (I have 20 need 12 more).
    - Would also like to find a shock for a JP Morgen suspension stem, mine has a minor leak or can these be fixed and if so by whom?
    - Hope brand disc brake adaptor for a Lawwill Leader fork. Apparently the folks at Hope remember this item but have no info or even pics.
    - Last item desired is a Kona Future Shock.

    Thanks for any help that can be provided.

    Wants : Really the only thing I want to find is a set of the tubular tires that were used with Wolber TR-1 26" tubular rims by rocky mountain on the altitudes around 1991. I have two of the rims NOS but nothing to stick on 'em if I build wheels with them. Oh and a 20" or so Rocky Mountain Experience frame would be a nice find also. Actually old rocky mountains in general are good with me. Equipes, Team Comps, Altitudes, Summits, etc.

    Haves :

    Besides the stuff already listed in the classifieds (girvin rockrings, hiterites, cooltools, etc) I've got a complete 20" 1993-94 Specialized Hardrock Ultra, a 1991 18" Schwinn CrossFit Frameset, three green 1" threadless (around 7.5-8.5" lengths) Univega Racelite CrMo forks, an NOS 1992 Scott Unishocks in black with green decals (the ones which weren't recalled !) with 1 1/8 x 4.9" threaded steerer, a couple Specialized M2 MMC 1 1/8 x 135mm threadless stems (black matte finish, 1 10deg 1 0deg), a Roox aheadstem that's 1 1/8 x 120mm x 25 degree rise or so (good for dirtdrops) in a red powdercoat, a bunch of girvin flexstems for 1", 1 1/8" and 1 1/4" headsets, probably a ritchey forcelite Crmo quill stem or two in a 150mm extension for 1 1/8, an NOS Tioga CrMo seatpost that's 300mm x 26.8, an NOS Zoom 4130Crmo seatpost in 31.8 (fits Manitou frames), a black 10 deg x 150mm ControlTech stem for 1 1/8 threaded with syncros decals on it, a red Kore 150mm x 0deg x 1 1/8 threadless stem, a black Kore 1 1/8 x 10deg by 115mm threadless, a NOS salsa 130mm x -10deg x 1 1/8 threaded Crmo stem, a GT FlipFlop stem 1 1/8 threaded x 130mm x +/- 10deg (the ones from 1990-92 range which they used with those special forks with the adjustable dropouts), a Scott Unishocks LF (this was one of the recalled ones but it could be good for parts) with pooched elastomers and the bottom leg bolts are spinning free so I can't get the thing apart without drilling/splitting the bolts, its 1 1/8 threadless with about 7" of steerer. An NOS Allsop Softride Beam Kit (with all the mounting adapters/brackets to convert a hardtail to a beam bike).

    I've of course only touched the edge of the stuff I got, but that's the excess I felt like typing about right now.

    I have this stem. It's not NOS, the paint is a little rough on the backside, but it's solid. I think all the decals intact. 135mm x 15 degree, approximate.

    I'm looking for:

    a 1" quilled salsa P10 or P7 or similar high rise, drop bar stem

    We need a way to streamline this so the thread doesn't get out of control. Every time I come back to the thread, I have to weed through the chafe to get to the treasures (meaning, the stuff I want )

    Rumpfy, how 'bout we start a new series of threads for different categories and put an official Sticky on them.
    Cockpit: stems/seatposts/seats/h-bars/grips.
    Drivetrain: shifters/derailleurs/cranks/rings/cassettes/freewheels.
    Wheels: hubs/rims/tires/skewers.
    Miscellaneous Parts .
    And the grandaddy of them all Frames/Bikes.

    This wouldn't upset the natural order of things. It would just make it easier to find the things you're looking for. Of course, for those of you who still want to get as much for your item as possible, you still have the right to list on Craig's or flea-bay.

    mtbr has it's own classifieds. this thread should be about trade only. no money involved.

    Cro-Mo Splined Triple butted rears, bonded aluminum fronts. The first in the bonded series of Miyatas, I think. Retail was around $899.

    oh, and early '90s, like 1993, I think.

    Flavio, I'm not suggesting we make this a FOR SALE thread. I'm merely suggesting we separate the thread into 4-5 categories to make it easier to wade through the soon to be endless posts.

    Cook Bros & HED

    I've spent the past six months looking for a l/h Cook Bros RSR in 3DV 176mm and a HED XC rim. Even a silver RSR would do - i can get it colour matched

    Can anybody help?

    I'll return the favour with assistance in shipping from UK/Europe for any iotems?

    What Colker said. Trade only (though I can't be held responsible for sales that go on behind the scenes.

    I'd say this thread is already against the forum rules and guidelines and should actually be deleted...

    I'm not because...well....some times you just have to say F it.


    But making a series of threads (even if for trading only) will require a lot of maintenance for me because I'm quite sure there will be posts that violate forum rules. Maybe not from our core group of VRC regulars...but enough people to where it could potentially cause issue.
    That could still happen with this thread...but at least its all contained in one place for me to check.

    Don't get me wrong, I like being a moderator...but I love the VRC because its a mellow place that pretty much runs itself. I'm busy, I like to ride my bike when I can...and adding threads that will cause me to have to be all 'moderator' like, don't get me too excited.


    I will add this thread to the 'sticky' thread though. Search for what you want, take it to PM's.
