    Clearing out the garage and have some bits to get rid of
    Collection in East Dulwich SE22 or Waterloo/ Southbank SE1. Potentially post.

    (updated with price drops)

    Campagnolo Record headset - 1in Threaded - £25 - £15
    Bottom cup is a little crispy, just needs re-greasing. Top is smooth. Small marks on the bottom.

    M Part Elite XX-44 Headset - £20 - £10
    Brand new in box.

    Miche BB - £15 - £10
    super smooth still. few fitting marks.

    Shimano 105 rear derailleur (no jockey wheels) - £15 - £10
    Clean, still works fine.

    700 c Flip Flop rear wheel, Sturmey Archer freewheel 130mm spaced- £20 - £15
    Spins true, plenty of braking surface left, solid cheap wheel. Spaced at 130 which is weird but can be used for your old road bike conversion/commutery types.

    Bargain Bin - £10 or less

    Crank Bros - Iodine 110mm, 31.8, 6deg - £5
    Nice MTB stem, got a bit of a rough paint job about 4 months ago but still looks presentable.

    Planet X stem - 110mm, 31.8, 17deg - £5
    Bought it to make my bike fit for a while before I nailed the set up, was on the bike maybe 3/4 days. Nothing wrong with it just upgraded.

    Ritchey - Pro 145mm?, 25.4, 3/4deg - £5
    Came on a bike I bought so a little unsure of the sizes, some rust on the bolts but still all fine.

    Unbranded (Possibly Specialized) - 130mm, 26, 3deg - £5
    Came off a Specialized bike but unsure of its original brand.

    Cannondale C3 Drops - 470mm - £10
    Nice standard road drops.

    For sale is this Purple Schwinn Aluminum. I don't know much about the bike as it was originally but through some digging found out it is a Japanese made frame from some point in the late nineties. It has served as a lovely commuter for about a year and a half but has sat unused since I got another bike.

    Its a super stiff frame, due to the joined chain stays at the back and can be super shreddy, I had it set up as a single speed for a little while (managed to find the unicorn 46/18) and it was super nippy and felt almost like a track bike. The paintwork is a bit rough but its all cosmetic. I managed to fit a 28c tyre in the back of it, albeit very tightly but runs 25c very comfortably. It has had a Tange sealed cartridge bearing bottom bracket and headset installed roughly a year ago but has been stored for about 6 months, still lovely and smooth. It also comes with a quill seat post, which is a novel feature and looks great. However, there is a tiny crack in the top of the seat post. I rode it every day for about 9 months and it never got any worse. Ideally, I would have had one made but it never became an issue (this is also part of why it is priced the way it is).

    Its a really big frame, I'm 6'4 and it fits me like a glove and Im truly a bit sad to see it go.
