    Sweet Wings for $45 from LBS

    A local bike shop is going out of business. They have a brand new set of Sweet Wings for $45 in 175mm length. The only kicker is that they are missing the drive cups, bearings, end caps, and chainring wranglers and nuts.

    Is it worth it? If so, any ideas on how to get the missing parts?

    Thanks.

    The only source for spare parts is people that already have SweetWings. Frankly, that deal sounded really good until I went through my mental inventory and realized the only thing they're selling is the arms. The ring-wranglers are pure custom, as is the drive-side cup and design. You could use a Shimano non-drive side external cup: same bearing exactly.

    I would get them. Worst case scenario is you cant complete them and they wind up on ebay. You should be able to make $45 back. If you dont want them, I have a friend who most likely would.
