    Happy New Year. I have an old double lever that I'm not using. I know the cool kids ride freewheel / front brake but it's free if you want it. I come on here once a month so easier to email:

    Hi Earl, have you looked at stems for Dutch bikes? I put one on my GFs bike and even the shortest one raised the handlebars about three or four inches.

    I also noticed a similar post with regard to scratched Quill Stems so sounds like a project for this weekend.

    Thanks

    So in swapping out the quill stem on my girlfriend's conversion, technically speaking I'd say I "scratched the fuck" out of her Velo Orange bars.

    Is it possible to polish it out, even a little? Some of them are fairly deep so I'm not expecting miracles. Just seeing if anyone has attempted similar.

    While I remember... also selling a 22t White Industries freewheel that was on my polo bike until recently (34 / 22).

    I imported the freewheel from the States as 20t is the biggest commonly found on these shores.

    It's in fantastic condition and sounds beautiful on a bike £45 ono. Will deliver anywhere within the Cambridge area and also happy to post at no extra cost.

    Selling a black 27.2 x 410mm Thomson setback seatpost.

    It was used on my polo bike for a year or so, but is in great condition. Has a few marks from insertion, a couple tiny silver scratches and the clamp has some wear (although covered by the seat).

    £35 ono, can deliver anywhere in the Cambridge area in the evenings.

    Fingers crossed for you and retweeted.

    Hope he has a safe return.

    Who's got what in the form of a nice (old?) steel frame? Something around 58cm, ideally.

    Looking for 531 (or better), if possible. Being a bit of a looker would be an additional pro.

    Come at me with pics and prices, people.

    Drop Angelo a line, he's always got something nice hanging about.
