Remember "We were only obeyink orders" at the Nuremburg Trials? This is crap: you people who are involved in or abetting extremism (not just that of the past/another country to ours...) must listen to yourselves/your own orders...

    Nitto 67 seatpost
    A non too common seatpost from Nitto. Oversized 31.6mm diameter. Length 35cm from bottom to the centre of the saddle rails. It has a v nice satiny finish although the part previously inserted in a frame would benefit from a polish. And very light scuffing but no obvious zigzagging anywhere. The Nitto logo near the top has mostly worn off.
    Price: £20

    Kona Velocity stem
    Nice condition steel stem. Length is 95mm with a small upwards angle. For 1 1/8" steerer. Bar diameter is 25.6mm. Some paint loss where it sat next to the headset and some scuffs along the top but still v tidy. All threads are good. Top cap missing.
    Price: £8 (SOLD).

    Orange Stalk stem
    Another nice steel stem. Length is 130mm with and has 0 degree angle. For 1 1/8" steerer. Bar diameter is 26mm. Some paint loss where it sat next to the headset and a scuff underneath one of the Stalk logos but still v tidy. All threads are good.

    Shimano XT M760 rapid rise rear derailleur
    In excellent condition except for slight scuffs near to the jockey wheel cage. Long cage design. Looks to have had v little use and jockeys are original and show minimal wear. Everything can be adjusted and all threads are good. Spring tension is tight and the often lost rubber chain catcher is still tied on.
    Price: £12

    Odi Longneck grips
    Used once so have v little wear. This Longneck model looks to be a tad longer than normal grips.
    Price £3

    Shimano XT M739 rear derailleur
    Very nice condition except for marks on the face plate and scuffs elsewhere. The top jockey wheel has some wear. Long cage design. Looks to have had v little use and jockeys are original. Everything can be adjusted, there's no play in the pivots and all threads are good. Spring tension is tight.
    Price: £15

    Shimano XT M738 front derailleur

    Price: £12.

    Shimano XT M738 front derailleur

    Up for sale are the majority of my best parts I've been saving for some special builds but in the end realised most of my bikes these days are generally midrange so no need for this stuff:) Postage is extra or you're welcome to collect from NW London.

    Campagnolo Icarus rear derailleur and Record OR front derailleur
    Very nice condition for both of these derailleurs- the front is nearly perfect butdoes have a few scuffs if you look closely. The rear is missing it's original gear cable adjuster as well as the original jockeys have worn out. Besides this, it's all complete and in excellent working order with no play in the pivots and v tight spring tension. All threads are good, everything's in alignment and no bolts are seized. All the above goes for the front mech too. This one does show slight wear inside the chain cage from usage. Band size is 26.8mm. The rear is a medium cage. These have sold for silly prices on Ebay recently but I've decided on: rear was £50 > now £45, front £30 > now £27, but make me an offer if you'd like them as a pair.

    Shimano XTR M959 pedals
    A nice pair of these pedals. Bearings are buttery smooth with no play. There's some tarnishing around the cleat contact points but the metal isn't worn down. Good spring tension and all the bolts can be adjusted. All threads are good and the hex hole isn't rounded (no pedal tool flats).
    Price:was £20 > now £17.

    Cannondale platform pedals
    Nicely made pedals and this set has had little use. Axles spin smoothly with no play. Threads good.
    Price: £6.

    Time ATAC MTB pedals
    An excellent set of these pedals showing v little use. Clearly a beefier design than any of the many road versions of the ATAC model. There's slight wear to the MTB logos. Spring tension is good and everything can be adjusted. Threads are good and hex hole not rounded (no pedal tool flats). I also have a spare set of (new) cleats the new owner might like- price and pic to follow.
    Price: £12.

    Time cleats
    New. For use with the above and other Time pedals.
    Price: £6.

    Shimano LX M569 chainset
    A nice clean example of this chainset. Little wear from usage and the original chainrings are all there and have many more miles in them. Rings are 42/32/22t. Crank length is 170mm. Threads and tapers are good and all the bolts can be removed and the central lockring isn't seized.
    Price: £15

    Well actually I just remembered the chainring was one thing I was going to include in a sales thread, plus I seem to remember your unusual username from some business on the site which didn't quite work out- so all in all I think I'll withdraw my offer. Best stick with the Stronglight!

    Got a nice BLB chainring in black if you're not already sorted ^^
    I think it's got a lower tooth count than the Stronglight one if that suits?

    I have a pair of DA bar ends. Pm me if you're still looking.

    I can pull together enough spare parts to make up a groupset for you. And I also should have some mismatched wheels you can have cheap. If you're not already sorted then PM me and we can discuss.
