    I posted this someplace else, but most of this is rare to me.
    The FSA Orbit I have seen in Black but never this Blue.

    I've got two of the three Rasta Kooka chainrings, the red big ring left last month to Arizona on a tandem we sold.

    Didn't realize folks were into the rasta look anymore.

    I've had one of those Orbits in red. The lock collar sucked bigtime.

    Thanks man,

    Those elyptical rings had not entered my conscious state even once since 1998. How do they ride?

    The Durham ring is closer to 30 years old. I'll let you know how it rides after I find a front derailleur that can handle it.

    Was out rummaging through the parts bins and thought I'd post up some photos.

    The DX brakes aren't really rare but to find the matched set of levers (these are NOS) is uncommon as this generation of DX was marketed to serious BMX racers who only use rear brake. Was supposed to go on a project that I abandoned, but I can't part with them for some reason.

    The red stuff is a Critical Racing stem and brakes and Tech Lite levers going on an appropriate frame shortly.

    MRC Batwing in blue NOS with the box and instructions. MRC D-Cell and M-Arch with an extra brace and Real cartridge pads and some extra small parts. I've been hording these in hopes of finding a titanium McMahon Frame and composite fork. I know I'll need another M-arch if it ever happens...

    Short version: high speed crash back in 1992.

    Long version: I'll make a thread about it later today, maybe call it "Crashes and Causalities"

    I have a few parts that are probably considered rare, including a Tioga Tension Disc. I too, thought that they were cool, I have mine laced up to a SRAM 9.0sl hub (the only disc hub with the same spoke spacing) and used it on my single speed for a few years.

    I also have a set of Bontrager made, rolled down 700c-26" Mavic MA40 rims laced to Dura Ace hubs and with a custom Dura Ace/ Deore XT 12/28 7 speed cassette that I ran on my early edition Merlin back in 1987.

    I have a set of these Magura brake levers also.

    At that time, Roger Durham was in the BMX market and not MTB, so front derailleurs weren't an issue.

    That Yo Eddy fork is painful to see. Such a nice fork. Do post about it.

    I was joking, but I think the elliptical ring was intended more for road time trial use.

    I noticed your stem had the bicycle engraved on it. We just sold a similar stem, it was lettered with Critical on it only.

    Brings up another question, Paul rear der, some have decals, some are engraved, decal style early or late? Anyone know the cage specs to differentiate Long, Med, Short. Yes when time permits it is going up for sale, just want to know exactly what it is.

    Not sure how "rare", but it is the 1st time I have seen these since I built a 1990 Attitude at the shop I worked at back then.
    Campagnolo Bullet "grip" shifters. They were cool at the time but the function was a little suspect.

    At an undisclosed location. First, I have thinned the herd of bikes by about 4 over the last year. All hooks were full before then.
    Now the tool area:
    And finally, the parts storage:
    Answers to two obvious questions: Yes, the wife is very forgiving. No, I will not be emptying all those banana boxes and photographing the contents.
    The only private person I know who has more @#$% is Ed Braley. Ed, do a posting, amaze everyone!!

    Just found out: if you go to my blog, you can click on any of the pics there. If you do they blow up to a larger image. If you click on the larger image, you get cross-hairs, and you can keep magnifying the image till all detail gets revealed.

    Here is something I haven't seen around. Moots Mounts. Designed to mount cantilevers on a frame w/o studs. I have some of the original aluminum type and some later plastic shells. They come with different radius on the shells and different band lengths to accommodate different frames and forks. I used them years ago and they work. They do scratch up the surface a bit.

    Yeah- it's a Moots "rock sled" and the only thing not pictured is the clamp that fits around the downtube. There is a little gap that allows tire clearance but it is hard to tell from the photo. Kent also made an attachment in the early 80's that mounts onto your frame to carry your skis which would be cool to find.

    Here are a few things that I made on the same theme back in the early eighties.

    The red guard is the second prototype. The first one was too thin and failed, and I guess was tossed. The aluminum version was the last attempt but I learned how to clear the chainrings going over stuff before I ever installed it.

    The other things are pedal guards to bolt up to SR rat trap pedals that were popular in the day. They were to be used with toe clips and the allen screws were to allow you to flip the pedal over insert your foot. Guess I couldn't source any shorter ones.

    Definitely rare since I made them and they are one of a kind. But might not fit with the theme of purchased parts made by others.

    Let's see if anybody recognizes these.
    They were originally royal blue, but age and sunfading had turned them a pale gray. My buddy had them refinished and anodized black.
    Not sure on the rarity (I don't see them come up for sale often), but they're a prime example of the early 90s CNC goodness.
    I miss those days.

    We have a winner.
    (I guess that was easier than I thought).

    This pair is one of two pairs that my buddy has. The other set is on his 1993 Mountain Goat Mudslinger, that he originally purchased in 1994, and had restored about a year ago. It's now repainted in team colors, and is a CNC technoweenie's wet dream, lol.

    This pair in particular is going on a 1990 Diamond Back Axis that I'm currently in the process of getting back on the road.

    Three Local Finds

    It's funny how something as mundane as tires becomes rare with age. These are the stories of three somewhat rare parts that sort of fell into my lap separately over the last few weeks.

    A very good friend of mine bought his wife a 1983 Stumpjumper back in the day. It was pretty novel since they had both ridden extensively on European road bikes that had them hunched over and clinging to narrow bars. However, his wife fairly quickly complained about the increased rolling resistance, so he removed the knobby tires and hung them on a hook in the basement. After almost 30 years, the tires reappeared and my friend handed them to me.

    Let's see those rare parts!-img_1852.jpg

    Let's see those rare parts!-img_1854.jpg

    I was out on a ride a couple of weeks ago and came up behind this rider on a Bridgestone MB-1. The hubs on the bike didn't look like Deore XT because they had these large cylindrical shells. And then I noticed the rivets. I say, "wow, cool old hubs!" And he returns, "yes, but the bearings are totally shot!" So he is now riding on a minty set of original spec M730 hubs with 231 rims and I have the proper hubs with appropriate patina for a restoration. Charlie Cunningham has identified them as definitely his work based on the size of the rivets and the machine work to remove the bearing retainers.

    Let's see those rare parts!-img_1860.jpg

    Let's see those rare parts!-img_1858.jpg

    Let's see those rare parts!-img_1857.jpg

    For the same restoration, I could really use an Edco Competition headset. Finding one on the local Craigslist was a total surprise. I guess you just never know.

    Cool tires!!!

    I am a tire freak.

    I have a nice variety of NOS tires - pair of Smoke Comps and a pair of Smoke Compe Lites, an UmmaGumma GC/S and an UG Storm Control, a pair of FJ Cousins, a Wonder Dawg and a Mud Dawg. Then a bunch of the same but far from NOS - all mounted and ridden.

    Recently lost out on a pair of Fat Trax - not that I have anything to put them on ... yet.

    I'd like to have those Stumpjumper tires too - again nothing as of now on which they would be appropriate but tomorrow is another day!


    Rare parts in my possession? Well not so rare as much as somewhat desireable, I guess are the following:

    A few Grafton items - full sets of black, silver and 3DV speed controllers; one pair of black Mag lites; silver Re-Entry levers; 3DV Speed Traps.

    3 sets of TopLine cranks - 3DV of course.

    TNT cranks (silver) attached to a Specialized Direct Drive Ti BB.

    Grey ProLong/S Ti saddle - perforated (courtesy of Ameybrook)

    Zoom Ned Overend Bar ends from Ned Overend himself (again courtesy of Ameybrook)

    Three Specialized Future Shocks (2 with carbon lowers).

    Virtually all but the NOS tires, the black Speed Controllers and the Speed Traps are mounted on the bikes I've posted since joining.

    Now I am on the lookout for more tires ...

    Crazy dumb luck on that wheelset. Man, what are the odds!? Way cool.

    Seems like a lot of people are. Its those high wear items that people get nutty over.
    Brake pads, grips, and tires.

    I'll have to get an updated pic of my tan wall tire collection (some great, some not so great).


    In the mean time (with thanks to a fellow VRC'er for the Comp), I have a neat example of two end of the era T-Disks, and one very early Sugino.

    Nice "set" you have there

    In about a week I'll be getting another disc from a chap who is arriving from over the pond. I learned today that he is en route to NYC to pick up some NOS stuff including a NOS Tension Disc Pro.

    You NOS disc guys are good ... damn good ...

    I always dig these. Never seen them show up on a build posted on VRC. No that's not a TA ring:

    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2 or 3. Cunningham Racer.

    Cool stuff! I imagine the Edco headset will receive the custom Grease Guard drilling?

    Apparently the folks at Edco liked the custom-drilled 1st gen headsets, as their 2nd gen Competition headset came right out of the box with the grease port..

    Drilling the Edco for the Grease Guard treatment would certainly complete the Charlie touch!

    Ha!

    There's actually a fourth story, but no photo to go with it. About two months prior to crossing paths with the Cunningham wheels, at the very same spot in the road (+/-10 feet), I came upon a rider on an old Mongoose with a fillet-brazed Steve Potts Type II fork. As I later learned, the Mongoose frame was a John Tomac Signature that had been owned by a racer from the Boston area. The bike was set up for cruising around town and everything was spray painted black, with kickstand added.

    So, yeah, I'm pretty much camped out along that road on any given weekend now.

    Sounds like a GREAT idea ... though I suspect your place is a lot like SCORES.

    Plenty to look at and drool over but touch anything and your swimmin in the East River.

    Marinovative Cheap Trick brakes - missing a few parts, but interesting.
    Moots titanium quill stem 1x1/8, 120mm

    True in every respect - but that's true of any "collectible". My father always said "something is worth only as much as someone else will pay for it" and the "Bay df E" is but one example.

    There are always surprises for those who look in the right place at the right time...

    I was possibly a bit too excited to score these parts for an NOS wheel build via eBay:




    Also have a set of VGC black/yellow Ringle Twisters skewers to complete the wheelset - although I'm thinking perhaps my White Industries hubs might make a better match for the rims.

    NOS tires are getting exceedingly rare - especially with Rumpfy buying them and skidding them into oblivion on its maiden voyage. You are him are like separated at birth.

    Klein MC1 quill stem

    I got this from a former Klein employee so it might be a one-off. It's rather plain looking but the quill is sized the same as an MC1 (1.25") so you could run drops on MC1 frames without adapters. It has a 26mm diameter stem-eye.

    That's sweet! For me, it doesn't have enough reach or rise to run off road drops but it's awesome!

    Yes, good call, there is an insert. The quill is very Klein (domed top) but the stem portion is quite Control Tech-like with the single pinch bolt and there are machining and weld similarities. I imagine someone grafted the two examples for this part.

    BNSS got it. The spindle is one of two that were made of beryllium in the mid-90s by an aerospace company at a manufactured cost of $1000 each. It weighs the same as magnesium but is far stiffer and stronger, and is a controlled material because of its importance to national defense.

    It's also toxic and machinists bust be extremely careful when handling and maching it so as to not breath any dust.

    That reminded me of this part I have. Yes, it's titanium. Yes, it's hollow in the center. No, I don't know why it's nutted.

    It's a bontrager race lite bottom bracket, there was also a more conventional race version. Made by titec and shown n the 95/96 components catalog, it seems only a handful ever made it out of the factory

    Doesn't get much rarer than this, one of two that I know of*, the other was made by Ross at Salsa for Joe Breeze to use on his wacky experimental bike. 78 degree head tube, zero fork offset (meaning no trail), and almost no bar offset. Joe's was shorter, this one was probably rejected for putting the bars too high.






    *If anyone else has one or knows more about these I'd be interested in hearing about them.

    Neat stem. Joe's experimental bike still had trail though right? I think you'd need a 90 degree head angle and no offset.

    You're right, there would be some trail. Not much, but not zero. It's funny, when talking to Joe about that bike he didn't seem to think it was a big deal, although in retrospect he was able to ride it on all of the trails he usually rode, so I guess it wasn't (after some practice at least).

    Wacky Ti Saddle

    This saddle has more than just Ti rails; it has a Ti shell. I'm guessing it was made by Fizik based on the pad that has been glued on, and I kind of remember a product announcement. It's about 10 grams heavier than a vintage Flite Evolution with a carbon shell.

    Not Machine Tech, but almost as rare Sims Litening cranks. I had these as a regular Ebay search for years and this set finally came up for sale last summer. At first I thought they were the titanium ones because of the pressed and bolted on spider (in the BikePro catalog the spider and arm on the aluminum Litenings are one piece) but after comparing them closely to photos of the ti version and taking the same measurements as those shown in BikePro I found they are definitely the aluminum version. That's okay though, as they still look cool and weigh 100 grams less than the ti ones.

    I don't think Sims made these for more than a year or two and not in any large quantity judging by how hard they are to find, even finding pictures of them is difficult.





    Edit to update the photo links.

    Wow I never actually believed those existed. I remember trying to order them from CBO when they used to put everything in those ads with the tiny font. They had the listed and I tried and tried but they kept telling me "soon, soon". Never happened so I assumed they were vaporware.

    that crank that Jeff at MOMBAT posted was a Machine Tech crank (at least that's what Jeff thinks and I vaguely remember!). Machine Tech machined it and glued it together; I broke it. Sorry. Machine Tech got revenge on me by letting me ride one of their silent rear hubs, which would not engage if you slowly spun the cranks while coasting. A number of good face plants resulted, because the drive not engaging is a very bad thing on a Strange Bike with the pitch axis stability of a GB R1. I also broke a Magic crank, a Sweet Wings fabricated 4130 sheet crank (genius and beautiful- wish I still had it), and a Moravian fabricated titanium crank (pictures tomorrow). I wasn't very fast, but I was a good crank and rear hub tester.

    The first production hydraulic mountain bike brakes?

    Yes, kids, William Matthauser made very ingenius and usable hydraulic rim brakes for years before the European stuff came out. Late in his life, he lived near me in Anacortes, Washington, right on a main ride route, so I saw him quite often. He was a really good engineer, if not a great stylist! Here is a shot of one set that I have:

    Very Sad Crank

    Some of the most expensive cranks available were the lovely Moravia (?) cranks fabricated from sheet titanium, aledgedly in an old MIG parts factory in the Czech Republic. Super light, and strong enough for most riders. And no, this did NOT go up my calf, for which I am grateful. SGLTRK and Strangebike13: Sad crank breakers.

    Figure 8 brakes

    Anybody remember these brakes? They worked pretty well, once you got them set up.

    edit: how did you break that crank. Looks brand new.

    They were by IRD right? I have an identical pair of the IRD ones that used the weird cam and aluminum tube that threaded on. Can't recall what they were called.

    Figure 8 brakes

    No, Rock Crusher, there was no cam! The rollers are wrapped by that cable so that the cable crossed. It increased leverage and gave a non-linear pad movement, so if you set 'em up just right the pads would have some clearance, but a lot of leverage once the pads got to the rim. Very trick. I used the other set, and they worked pretty well.

    The ones with rollers are IRD Switchback, the ones with cam and aluminum tube are called IRD Widget.

    I thought I had a picture of Salsa Luma's cable set up but I can't find it. John does describe it perfectly but it's nice to have a visual connection as well.

    Those were Bullseye cranks in lengths between 190 and 225mm. But with "Interloc" decals on it.

    The Mt Tamer quad allows you to use freewheel cogs as a 4th position inner chain ring for extra low gearing.

    Not sure about the brakes but your springs are on the wrong side. I think they should wind tighter for spring, not open for spring. Just have to swap right for left and it should be good I think.

    ha...thanks for that. Fronts were fixed but unfortunately the backs are wound the same way...one is a little smaller so I guess the original was lost along the way...

    Don't know much about this item other than it was a show part. Never seen one before, looks like it would be a comfy mtb ride. Its listed as a vintage fixie part which I would interpret as track? Also the long post is 26.4??

    I interpret that as trying to sell to people who spend a lot of money of bikes and pay a premium for vintage yet don't actually know that much about bikes.

    Yeah I'm addicted to tires. Back a few pages (page 12 post 297) are just some of them but I have NOS Smoke Comp Lites, various Specialized UGs, skinwall Darts and Smokes, butterscotch Psychos among others.

    Would like your UG GC tires though!
