    The VRC Karma Thread - No For Sale Items

    Hey guys, I have some stuff I don't need and don't want to toss. Mostly bottles, cages, grips, tires, rims, cassettes and chains in decent shape. I'll take a picture soon but thought we should get this thread started in the meantime.

    1 moderately rusty, but straight and undented 1991 Stumpjumper Comp 18" frame, fork/headset, seat collar. This is the matte gray with hints of blue color.

    Maybe you just need a 1" threaded direct drive fork?

    You cover UPS ground shipping from Ann Arbor, MI and it's yours.


    .....and GONE! Thanks folks!

    Free Proflex

    Anyone like the Proflexes like the red one in this pic?

    MOMBAT: Proflex and Girvin Cycles History

    I picked one up yesterday for some XT parts that I wanted. It is rough cosmetically but pivots seem decent and frame and rear suspension are not bent or dented, just no good paint wise.

    PM me if you have use for it, also has a Vector 1 Girvin on it.

    Following in suit to fatchanceti who was gracious enough to send me an old stumpie he was not needing anymore, and that is turning into a pretty nice single speed campus bike......

    Sorry, I know I know, pictures....... just haven't gotten around to it....

    Proflex is shortly on its way to a happy home.... we need to all haze for before and after photos.....

    Ha! I found a frame just like that on the street in SF years ago. Ended up machining all new suspension bushings and replacing the elastomers with a spring from an Amp fork. Man, was it a terrible ride.

    So, as any good friend would do, I gave it to my buddy for his 40th birthday 10 years ago. And when he decided he needed a single speed last year, I took the since retired frame and machined a strut to replace the spring, making it a "hardtail."

    It has been appropriately renamed "The Torture Device."

    And sometimes I wonder why he never wants to ride SS with me.

    Remember that GOB is short. Her bottles might not fit you.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Have you ever seen her drink?
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    Lewisphoto, if you have any old Ritchey bottles, I am in.
    Also I have tons of junk I would give away for the cost of shipping.
    I will take pics after the holidays.

    Sorry for the slow uptake but I don't always get the email alerts for some reason.

    I should explain about the water bottles. I bought a 400 or more count collection about five years ago and spent over a year selling them on ebay. As a result most of the good ones are gone (i.e. Ritchey) What I have left are a rag tag lot of commemorative bottles, humorous ones, advertising for bike magazines or food supplements, tons of bike shops, Interbike promotional bottles, Schwinn and less collectible bike brands like Diamond Back.


    But If you wanted a honest to goodness 90s bottle for a user then I may have the ticket.

    Steven

    *And all for postage

    lewisfoto, do you have any haro bottles? Nishiki? Foes? I do have a small bottle coolection but like mostly like to get bottles that match the bikes I ride(or will ride when completed).

    I prob have stuff I can let go of too, I finally got the time to finish my builds so I will be going through my stuff soon...I have one part in particular I need to find for somone here that I know is hidden amongst my horde in the garage...as soon as these negative temps subside, I can resume my archeolgical dig in there.
    TIA
    Jeff

    I bought the collection as a money making endeavor so any bottle from a bike builder that I though had resale value was sold long ago, i.e. Dean, Klein, Fat Chance etc. When I say what is left is a rag tag collection it's no exaggeration. But I will look for the Nishiki.
