    I'm selling my Blahol New Wave bag - £80. I bought it before a trip to Japan May 2016 and have used it regularly since then - despite that, it's still in good shape as you'll see. A little bit of the webbing has frayed from contact with the velcro of the backpad, and there are a few wear related patches on the bottom of the bag where it would have rested on the ground.
    The plus points outweigh the negatives though - the bag can expand to an absolutely massive size, yet the compression straps on the side allow it to shrink down to a neater profile. The straps are detachable and are excellent for carrying large objects - I've cycled with multiple frames, wheels, etc on my back before.
    It's made of cordura and therefore very durable, and with the rolltop and vinyl lining (which is still in very good shape) it will be very durable. It's very versatile, and I'm only looking to get rid of it as I found I'm constantly overloading it and fucking up my bag - I'd like to buy a smaller bag to place artificial limits on myself!
    I live in Leyton but can post at cost and meet most places - during the week I'm usually working on York Way so can meet around there after work too.
    It's the exact same colourway as the second one picture here http://www.blahol.pl/bag/newwave

    Sorry - bit much for me - looking to spend around £10 or so on the shifters

    Looking for some 7-speed shifters - trigger or thumb shifters for riser bars.

    Also looking for a brake-hole mounted canti hanger

    And if anyone has any straight bar ends looking for those too.

    Cheers

    I have a small 1988 specialized hardrock I'd like rid of.
    I was planning on building it up as a comfy 3-speed utility bike but short patience with u-brakes and other bike distractions have put short to that.
    It's an incomplete project - it comes with a new headset, front wheel, original seatpost, new tyres, new tubes, new u-brake, and three-speed rear wheel with shifter. I also have the original shifter for a 6-speed wheel if you'd like that. I have a bunch of brake levers if you'd like a set.
    The crank pictured has absolutely refused to come off - I'll sort that and remove the BB before it's picked up.
    Pickup from Leyton, near the Midland road over-ground station to make transport easier.

    Anybody interested in a cibachrome-a DIY drum?

    Yeah, so I need to swap to single chainring bolts, I was just wondering if there were different sizes - say track vs road vs mtb, or if these are all standardised

    I removed one of the chainrings on my mtb cranks - the bolts held both cranks together, so I assume I need a smaller diameter set - are chainring bolts universally sized?
