cheap 26" stuff (tyres, wheel, p2 forks)

  • Having a clear-out, cheap things I need to get rid of!

    • kona p2 - black 410mm a-c, 160mm 1-1/8" threadless - bought these on eBay for a project, steerer tube was about 2mm shorter than needed so did something else - scratches on one leg (described by ebay seller) as well as the tiniest of dings (not described by ebay seller) - cost me £40, yours for £10 to get rid of - SOLD!
    • 2x Schwalbe City Jet 26"x1.5" - bought years back, used for about 30mins & have been at the back of the cupboard ever since - a bit grubby but I think in good functional condition - £5 for the pair - SOLD!
    • 26" Deore/WTB Speeddisc all-black rear wheel - from a secondhand 2005 p7, have broken multiple spokes thrashing it around, worn 9spd cassette included as WD40 & my biggest wrench will not undo the lockring - yours for free, please take it off my hands before it goes to the tip!

    collection only from Brockley SE4

  • I’ll nab the p2 forks pls

  • Seconds on the P2 if by some miracle &c &c

  • still got the city jets?

  • yep yep, please take them!

  • Sorry to derail the thread here but am I right in saying that those P2 forks fit the old Orange P7 frames? I’ve got a circa 2001 P7 which I’m trying to find a relatively cheap rigid fork to replace the original and dicey suspension one

  • hmmm, ottomh I'm gonna say - all the 90s p7s have 1" headsets, I /think/ by 2001 they have 1-1/8" headsets, but have you checked? next question - what travel do the existing suspension forks have? in rough numbers, on the 90s p7 setups (rigid-only) the forks were about 390mm long, then they went up to 410mm for 40mm suspension forks, eventually up to 440mm for 100mm suspension forks by 2005. So if your frame has 40mm suspension forks, a 1-1/8" headset & a headtube about 90mm long then these p2 forks would work. Although I sold them months ago...

    Lots of stuff on retrobike about this era, e.g.­-does-suspension-corrected-mean.375395/
