Dura ace 7800 rear mech

Will be used, so no need for brand new, conversely no grotty ex winter bike kit. Somewhere in between, fully functional

Would consider a 7800 rear & front mech combo if that's what you have. Front mech must be braze on

Thanks

Re: Shimano RSX Sti shifters 8 speed with NEW cassette

If that's a 11-32 cassette and wanted to split, I might be interested in that
You'll prob get £35 for the levers alone if they are in nice condition

Re: Raleigh SBDU, titanium top tube 55cm

It's Raleigh special products, not SBDU as in title. Different factories and prices. If it was SBDU, frames alone are worth £500 upwards, even for a crappy one

Re: Getting a Mezzo, lights & other questions

Old thread resurrection ... I have a mezzo D9 which needs a new tyre. Getting the old one off was a real fight as it's such a tight fit. I bought a new tyre, same size, same ertro sizing and just can't get it on. In the end I forced it on with ancient metal motorbike tyre levers but at the expense o...

Re: 3 x 7 brifters shimano st1055 or similar not too plasticy please

105 didn't have brifters till 8 speed, nor did Shimano 600 (later rebadged as ultegra). If you want 7 speed I think you'll need RSX. They're quite nice with metal levers and not too plastcky

Re: Stunning and rare 1950 Thanet Silverlight - rideable cla

Point well made on the ebay link. Good luck with the sale. Personally, I think it's 'utter nonsense' to jump in and throw offensive comments around when you clearly haven't got a clue what you're talking about. couldn't agree more. On the flip side, I personally think that its sad that the days of ...

Re: Legal question re. sheds and bike storage

I think youre right to be concerned about the impact of any dispute on the sale of the flat. As the sale progresses, you will be required to detail any disputes with neighbours. whilst it is only verbal, you could deny any dispute, as there is no trace. Should the dispute become paper-based then the...

Re: anyone remember name of those one piece 'bar ends' for mtb??

I'm not that familiar with butterflies, going on a bit of memory. Can you not invert them, so the non-clamped bit goes up and away at the stem, rather than nearer? what about time trial areo clip ons to stretch you out? if you need some older big curve bar ends try http://www.retrobike.co.uk.

no they were straights with built-in bar ends (one piece) bit like a lo pro road bar.

the OP's were more like a full loop.

Would butterfly bars give enough positions?

Re: Shimano A530 Pedals – Reflectors Question

which are the A530's? I bought some of the cheapest shimano SPD pedals (the narrow double sided ones) which came with clip in reflectors. So the underside has the reflector attached and the top side your foot is attached. If this is what you want, let me know, you can have them as I dont need them.

Re: Problems with Shimergo

interesting ! I too have shimano shifter with chorus (circa 2004 shifters - the last of the pre carbon ones) and have no problems. However, I understand the latest ultrashift ones are made with a lighter action. Could it be this that is causing the problem. I was considering buying some, but may hol...

Re: York Rally kids facilities

if you go and she wants to enter the kiddies races on the arena, dont rely on programme times, as they sometimes get altered on the day to cater for weather and/or over/under runs on other events. Keep yourself in proximity for a swift line up. We missed it once and kids were disappointed esp as the...
