    Fancy getting a wheelbuild related book.

    I know Jobst is probably the most old school respected dude, but theres also zinn and this new chap called roger musson who has the wheelpro website. Musson claims he provides instructions for making many wheelbuilding tools, this attracts me. But I generally drawn towards old school classic stuff, and I beleive Jobst is the respected reference material?

    any reviews out there?

    Do you think it's possible to learn how to build wheels from a book? If so, I might actually look into buying a book and giving it a go....

    how big is the big backpack, and the small one?

    Hi Rik

    The backpacks are quite large (and expandable). We used them when we went backpacking in Europe a few years ago, and they held everything (about 2 weeks' worth of clothes).

    So, if you don't want the smaller backpack, that appears to be all that's not currently claimed!

    My wife and I are moving into a tiny, tiny flat. As such, I'm getting rid of the following stuff, no charge.

    The only catch is that I won't post them. So basically, you can meet me where I live or meet me where I work (near Barbican station).

    North Face bag. It comes with a detachable waist strap:

    Reserved for Tamu

    Manhattan Portage Company laptop bag. This isn't really a messenger bag, it just pretends to be one:

    Reserved for Flickwg

    Burro Bag. Kind of cheaply made, to be honest. But fairly large. The interior is made of recycled billboard. It was supposed to be blue, but I guess the sky picture they used was taken during sunset. It's an ugly bag:

    Reserved for Rik

    Two backpacks. The red one is large and the green one a bit smaller. Both in good shape, as we've only used them 3 or 4 times:

    Both reserved for Rik

    Finally, some left over bits from my bike. All Bontrager. Oversized road handlebars, stem (for said handlebars) and saddle:

    (Obviously the pictures didn't load. Attached below).

    Saddle reserved for Horatio; Bars and stem reserved for Upstart

    **Will update if any of these fall through.
