I have way too much stuff, and it’s starting to drive me nuts. I thought others might have the same problem, or possibly need stuff I have. So, this thread for folks to post things that may be best moved on to others.

First, a kids bike, 20″ wheels, 7 speed, custom paint job, well maintained (duh). Was a silver/gray Rhino, if that’s important. Fully disassembled and regreased at the time of the paint job. Shoot me a lowball offer, whatever it’s worth to someone. I’m more interested in getting it out of my garage and having someone use it than making money off it.

A “stunt” type bike. Some generic make (Vertical??). I bought it a while ago because I thought the aluminum frame was pretty cool. But that’s no longer justification for it to take up space. 20 inch wheels, spinner brakes on the front fork, footpegs both ends. Sadly, no one in my family has followed the path of the stunt biker. Maybe someone can use it. Lowball me.

26″ front wheel, alloy rim, dead straight and tight. Bolt on, would be good for a city bike. New bearings and grease. Needs axle nuts. Free.

Handlebar collection. One or all, free. Flat bars and cruiser are steel, drops all alloy. Use them on a bike or make art out of them, don’t care. If you have a specific need, pm me and I can send dimensions.
The bar with the stem is a matched set, Nitto Olympiad, super short stem. The stem has really cool Japanese engraving on the part you never see! I think it means “line of death”.
Seats, free. Yellow on the left is a Selle gel, quite cushy for an ass hatchet. On the right is a beat old Selle Turbo, pretty comfy, and would instantly make any bike look like an extra from “Premium Rush”.

The following is free to a good home:

(1) A 2-bike, strap-type bike carrier for a car, i.e., one that straps to the trunk with nylon straps. It is in good shape and works well enough given what it is.

(2) Tire liners for preventing flats. I think they are the “Mr. Tuffy” brand, and if not, they are that style. I found they were more trouble than they were worth, but they do work as intended.

(3) A Profile Design stem adapter for converting old-style threaded stems to 1 1/8″ threadless stems. This and a modern 1 1/8″ stem/handlbar combination is a nice upgrade for an older road bike.

(4) An Easton carbon fiber seatpost from my old Specialized mountain bike. I think it is 30.9mm, but am not sure. I will check if anyone is interested.

Email me at jcm250b at juno dot com if interested. I am downtown every day and am otherwise pretty easy to find.

This is free; text me at 412 – six five one – four six three four if you want me to send a picture:

1) An old Lockhart “tank bag” from my motorcycle touring days. It measures about 12″ wide by 14″ long by 8″ high. It looks like it would work nicely as a “trunk” on the top of a standard touring-style rear bike rack.

2) A 12″ by 16″ spider web-style bungee. These are often used on motorcycles to strap things to the rear seat. It might be useful for fastening odd-shaped items to a trailer or rack.

Also, the items in the post above are still collecting dust if anyone wants them.

This wouldn’t be until much later, but I just had an idea…

What if we added a bike parts swap component to the Try-A-Bike-Jamboree

If they’d be willing to have us, there’s already a large space with people congregating who are fans of bikes

Edmonds59, you have your own mini Bicycle Heaven in your house.

If all else fails donate it to Free Ride for a tax deduction.

Does anyone want a nice vintage steel bike? 1987 Fuji Del Rey. Advertised in craigslist but I’m just sick of dealing with CL idiots who don’t come through, and I’m tired of looking at it. I’ll let it go for a fraction of what I advertised it for. Make an offer.

Sold.

Maybe this belongs on craigslist, but I thought I would ask here first. Does anyone need any 2×12 lumber? I have a bunch of roof joists from an old building I demolished; they range from 10′ to maybe 20′ in length. They are full of nails but would clean up nicely. I don’t need them and neither does the Wheel Mill. I would be OK with delivering them within the City of Pittsburgh or thereabouts. Text me at 412 – six five one – four six three four if you could use such a thing.
