This is a fantastic thread!

Here's my list:
  • White Industries 135mm ENO eccentric disc rear hub
  • 2002 Fox Float RLT fork, 80mm
  • 2009 Fox Terralogic fork, 100mm
  • Avid Arch Rival rim brakes
  • 740mm Ti Groovy Luv handlebar with the Dirt Rag (RIP) logo etched on them (Actually, this might be great for a flat bar gravel bike now that I think about it)
  • First-gen Avid BB7 mechanical disc brakes
  • Quick-release levers galore
  • Tomi-Cog fixed-gear cogs
  • 2x quick-release Chris King ISO Disc hubsets
  • Chris King hub tool (Last used circa 2009)
  • Too many 90-110mm 25.4 and 26mm Thomson stems to count
  • The same goes for Thomson seatposts in various lengths and diameters
  • First-generation 9-speed SRAM XO trigger shifters and X9 rear derailleur
  • Salsa Pro Moto carbon flat bar (This 660mm bar was ahead of its time in the mid-2000s)
  • Spot Singlespeed designed for the first-generation Gates belt drivetrain (Man, that was terrible)
  • 2001 26" Gunnar Rockhound turned into a singlespeed in 2004 with a magic gear
  • Don't even get me started on old tools...
Thank you all for making me feel better about my hoarding.

How embarrassing. I am still riding several of the things on your obsolete list Josh, as well as some things on several of the other lists posted.
I don’t know if thats embarrassing as much as it is smart.

I always wanted to try one of those Titec saddles, but was in love with the Selle Italia Flite TransAm at the time. If you decide to purge it from your parts bin, shoot me a PM.

I have a DT XMC1200 29er 24mm ID boost front wheel spare. It’s a great wheel but just sitting here. I’ll sell it but I’m not giving it away too cheap.

I have a Fox 34 130mn air sleeve currently as well.

Some parts I keep on hand at all times in case I need to do a quick service when shop may be closed; brake pads, new chain, tire, and fluids/ tools for repairs.

I often have lots of parts but I flip them on eBay to fund my newer part purchases. It helps me afford my latest need. I sell tires, stems, bars, brakes, posts, cassettes, rotors even old chainrings.

For the majority.... almost everything I own would be considered antique/retro/pointless. Of my 15 or so bikes... only 2, I think, have any sort of thru-axle. A few are singlespeed, all have 24mm bottom bracket axles, none have flat-mount brakes, all are 29'er/700 (why anyone would have anything else is beyond me) and... thankfully, not one has modern geo or suspension of any kind. Just the way I like it.

I installed an XTR 28.6mm clamp front derailleur on a friends Huffy and then pried the cage open to clear the 7 speed chain. It felt like sacrilege, but no one wants front derailleurs, especially when it's a 28.6mm clamp.

everyone, offer up a prayer. Id say there are plenty of vintage riders who would have taken that off your hands. Too late now.
I have a rear Chris King QR non-disc rear hub, but it is truly useless as the hub flanges exploded.

A Huffy never shifted so smooth. ;)
