• Fixing up an old 26 mtb for commuting/shopping duties. Used and no-name parts accepted (mostly preferred for the £). Need the following:

    Front rack/Wald basket
    Kool stop salmon or Swissstop for v-brakes
    Cheap short 1 1/8 and 31.8mm threadless stem (35mm/50mm)
    Touring/trekking/townie/cruiser 31.8mm bars (On-One probs)
    Tan wall 26' tyres
    9 speed chain

    Not in a massive rush. Can pickup in London or pay postage.

    Rear rack
    9 speed derailleur
    9 speed cassette
    9 speed shifter
    9 speed wheels
    Quill adapter
    V brakes

  • Free in E14. It's a vintage jim blackburn rear rack. Surprisingly light. ebay research suggests these are not totally worthless yet...

    just to add - these were on a 26" frame. not sure if that fits your requirement

  • ah amazing yeah it's for an old 26" trek, thanks man I'll PM you now

  • made a whole list now, anyone got anything? (:

  • i have a used shimano BB you can have for free, pickup n7

    also some cantilever brakes possibly

  • Have a bag of canti bits you can have for postage (think there’s a full set), will take a picture when I get home to see if they’re what you’re after. Also a pair of neon green brake levers (what was I thinking…)
    Maybe some other bits and bobs, will check.

  • i've got both sizes of quill adapter...

  • PM'd you folks

    Got some cheapo v brakes in that thread ^^

    Also pretty sure I've got a 7 speed Acera derailleur if it's any help. Can look for it missed "9 speed" my bad

  • much appreciated anyway man!

  • Probably have a stem.
    What length do you need?

  • nice! theres probably going to be some trial an error involved so maybe starting at 50mm could be a good plan
