    Hello,

    I have a few things that I'm going to get rid of, but I thought I'd check to see if they could be of any use to anybody before just leaving them out with the bins.

    2 x Schwalbe 700x25 beaded clinchers (Not very used at all, but came on a lightly used bike. Replaced them with gatorskins after the first puncture. They still look OK to me, but I've got no use for them.) GONE

    2 x IRC Triathlon 700x20 beaded clinchers (These came on another used bike I got; I rode them for a few years with no problems until I moved to London and switched to 700x23 gatorskins in the winter.) GONE

    That stuff might actually be useful. I'm not sure about this, though. I've got a set of wheels where the rims are screwed, as is one of the hubs. However, one of the hubs looks like it might be salvageable. Some of the spokes are broken and/or bent, but some of the spokes are fine. I don't know what make anything is, but they're certainly of better quality than the wheels above. If for whatever reason you're interested in any of this, let me know. GONE

    Collection in Stoke Newington.

    Cheers,

    Philip

    NB - Having some difficulty getting all the pics to load, so if you need to see others, just ask. Hopefully this will be OK, though.

    matt just hooked up my road bike, which i hadn't ridden in over two years since going fixed. it rides great now and i actually enjoyed the novelty of coasting again.

    support the hub!

    thanks again, matt...

    A bloke on a mountain bike this morning cycling up towards Shoreditch up from Liverpool St with only one leg! very impressed.

    i've seen this guy before—he had one crutch and when he had to stop at a light he would just pop it down, otherwise he rode with it straight out in front like he was jousting.
    someone should tell him about fixed gear bikes, it'd save him a lot of effort, or at least he'd be more efficient...

    in any case, whatever the state of the bike, it's pretty easy to spot. as i said, i saw it twice today alone :)

    (to aidan) i agree completely. sounded just like boasting. however, i did a search on the forum, found the bicycle in question mentioned on this thread by two separate members, and so thought i should enquire further. i'm not making any accusations, just trying to get more information.

    ok, cause i saw it twice today. kid riding it told me he had a time trial bike, too, worth 8 grand, and some other bikes. i can't imagine ever being able to afford a bike worth a fraction of 8 grand, so it struck me as a little odd.

    if is that one I think, the bike is stolen for sure.

    anyone know the story on this bike?
