Wanted: Aero carbon fork, seatpost, crankset etc

Posted on
  • Just bought myself a nice new aero frame (waiting to be powder coated) and a navigator wheelset. Don't want to take any bits off my old bike so I can sell it as a whole so I am after some other bits and bobs and thought maybe someone here might want to unload some of it. I'm after:

    _a carbon fork (preferably a flat aero style one with little or no branding). 1" 1/8 integrated headset.
    _a seatpost similar to the forks (carbon, possibly aero and little or no branding). 27.2
    _crankset. new or nearly new and preferably black. 170 and 42T (or similar).

    Been looking on ebay but thought I would try here on the off-chance.

    Nice One

  • i have an alpina 27.2mm aero carbon seatpost...brand new.....if you want....350mm center saddle rail to end of post

  • cheers for getting back to us. how high is the 'aero' bit if the total length is 350mm? Any chance of getting the branding off or is it lacquered over? I know I'm being fussy but I have had bikes I haven't been totally satisfied with so want to make this one to my liking. Interested though if price is right! Cheers

  • seeing as nobody has any carbon forks or cranksets to offer...can anyone point me in the right direction?

    anyone got any opinions on these for about half price (£90) new from planet x?

  • just seen these but the price makes me a bit suspicious. any opinions. I am a bit of a fat bastard so it might be worth forking out on a stronger (and probably more expensive) crankset.

  • I have in very good condition a plain Giant carbon aero seatpost 27.2, 390mm. £30 o.n.o.

  • the aero part looks a bit big to be honest. any idea of the length of the thicker aero bit? cheers

  • I'll check this this avo when I get home.

    min insert 90mm max 180mm
    which makes the aero part 170mm

    and the i guess its transfers under cleacoat so if you remove the coat the carbon would be exposed to anything nasty you may encounter

  • The aero blade length is 265mm. is this any good?

    anyone got any opinions on these? or recommend a similar crank for a good price?

  • after setting the bike up I have realised I need a stupidly small aero part (10-15cm) so might just get a normal one. Cheers anyway. Let me know if you come acrossany good cranks or forks though.

  • Ended up getting an easton ec90sl for pretty cheap so fork sorted. Get a second hand tiny aero seatpost so that's sorted too (cheers for the offers anyway but all to big).

    Think I'm gonna get an FSA Newton crankset off the bay (43T, 170 mm, 3/32) with FSA ISIS BB and a shimano dura-ace 15T cog for £70 delivered. Does this sound like a good deal? I don't have a clue when it comes to these bits so any advise would be good. Hopefully the cog will fit my Navigator hubs and the FSA ISIS BB will fit my english track bike.

    All I need now is:

    _a nice stem (preferably a short one)
    _pedals, large toe clips and straps
    _saddle
    _riser bars (preferably carbon)
    _front brake calliper (black if possible)
    _chain (3/32 and black or silver)

    Any offers or any advise / deals would be well appreciated.

    Cheers

  • long shot.

    but any chance this is still available?

    thanks
