This is the spot to post up things you:

Have and don't need.
Need and don't have.
Don't have and don't need, but want anyway.

Thanks to Francis, Gregg, and Walt for allowing us to do this. It should help out a lot of folks. Remember, no overt SELLING of items. If you've got something valuable, please don't forget to use the MTBR Classifieds. It beats the snot out of Craigslist.

I suggest contacting people via Private Messaging. Work out the details there.

And, now, I introduce Framebuilding Swap Thread 3000...

Edit: This is Walt. One more thing - please edit your post as things get traded off, rather than posting a new one every time.

I'm not much into working with lugs, so I have a bunch of road-ish HT lug "sets", BB, DO (front and rear), SS yokes, fork crowns (1"), and ST/TT lugs.............I am willing to trade for tubes (fork or frame), CS, mountain DO (geared or SS), or slotted disk brake tabs. :D

Off the top of my head

Have:

HOXPLATST1 tubes - these are .65/.5/.75 seat tubes. Super sick for weightweenie road bikes (and I don't think they're made anymore, either) but I don't really build any of those, so they have been sitting for maybe 6 years? I think I have like 15 of them.

Tons of cheap tab-type front fork dropouts in a couple different configurations.

Tons of "overlapping finger" type hose/housing guides. I use the Bikelugs stainless ones, I think these ones suck. Maybe you like them, though, and want them. I have a big bag of probably 100.

Pile of unicrown fork blades. I think they are True Temper. They are for mountain bikes, 430mm length maybe? I build a unicrown once in a blue moon, they are useless to me. No idea why I got them. I can provide better specs if anyone is interested.

Want:

-Surprise me.

Ah, I just found a Ritchey Break-Away kit, inc cable splitters. It's for a ø31.8 downtube. *SOLD*

Oh, I also have some Turner parts that I'll probably never use that could make for a nice project bike or two. I also have the tech drawings for the pivot point locations and designs which I'd be happy to email to anyone that wants the parts.

Qty.1 set of black older Sultan/Flux rockers
Qty.1 set of black new Sultan/Flux rockers (Last ones before DW-Link)
Qty.1 set of OD Green ceramic coated new Sultan/Flux rockers (Last ones before DW-Link)

Qty.1 Sultan Complete rear end, used, horst link version
Qty.1 Sultan complete rear end, new, non-horst, Titanium ceramic coating.

I also have 2-3 Manitou air shocks to match.

Probably prefer to sell the whole lot if I can. Would be a nice fun Ventana alternative.

Hi guys, I have some stuff laying around that I'll likely never ever ever use. I'm not a framebuilder, but I'd be willing to trade for just about anything, maybe some components or beer, or even some bike related shirts (provided your ok with someone who is fat and ugly rocking your companys tshirts)

UBI 6AL-4V titanium weld wire, .045 x 36" full 10 sticks. Selling for $17.50 at UBI right now

Clockwork alignment gage. I bought this from clockwork in 08. I think he ran a thread on this forum. I worked in a shop at the time and had access to an alignment table. I no longer work there and have no need for it. Ive never even used it. More info here:
http://www.clockworkbikes.com/alignment_gage.html

msc tools adjustable reamer. Fits eccentric BB shells (or anything else you wanna ream from 1 13/16" - 2 7/32". Industrial size M. Has been used 1 for one frame.

What? Seriously? Tell me more. I'd like to swap you something for a set of these. I had a 1984 TA that I stupidly sold when I got my first car--probably for something stupid like a subwoofer or an amp....

I almost had it back during college when the "kid" I sold it to enrolled but he dropped out before we made the deal. I don't want one bad enough to buy a used one for a fortune on eBay, but to make one sure would be fun. Does the set come with dropouts and fork blades too?

I would say less than 100
They had cases of tube set's jsut kicking it , some pre polished for chrome bikes still wrapped in paper :eek:
The problem is they had a very limited # of the right front dropout's so they were only able to make frames with the drops they had , they wanted to get more made but the punch die was going to cost $$$$$$$$ to have one dane .
their could still be a few hundred pre mitered tube set's up their just chilling in the back warehouse .
