Strictly speaking they’re on a box, the box is on the table. So it doesn’t count.

A lovely second hand 39 tooth chainring, courtesy of a very kind John2

It's going to be used as a single chainring with a sun race 5 speed freewheel... giving me 72, 63, 50, 42 and 36 inch gearing. The chainring will be slightly of spaced so that the chain runs straight on the 63 inch gear - which will be my tapping along gear. The chain ring will also be mounted back to front so that I'm using the less worn side of the chainring teeth.

Thanks John2! :D

sounds good; it is very easy to overlook the virtues of a simple transmission in this day and age.

Swapped out the leaky original brass valve on my Rennkompressor with a more practical dual valve thingy:

First time I’ve bought inner tubes (Schwalbe) that weren’t in retail packaging:

These bad boys are going on my jazzy bike’s wheels:
