Friends, this is the kind of offer that usually only comes along April 1, and then mostly from our esteemed colleague, Mr. Sheldon Brown, of Harris Cycle (but he does a better job):
At Trexlertown (where else?) I may have won the Bottom-feeders Funk contest myself. I came home with half a dozen or so Genuine British T.D.C. freewheels, really grimy. These take a really nice but essentially unavailable remover that has three deep male "teeth" that engage equivalent slots in the body. Yeah, Larry Black has at least one, but who knows where? :-). Actually, they have a nice design, with inner cogs splined and outer ones threaded -- like the early Suntours.
Think of the uses: put one on a "gift" bike for your favorite brother-in-law who won't ride anyhow, so he'll never notice that you can Get It On, but you can't Get It Off... Attach to a chain for your next street rumble. Use for paperweight (perhaps after cleaning): no one else in the office will have one. Install as intermediate drive on a Trike for when you are very, very, old and won't tighten it up very much anyhow. Wear it as a belt buckle next time you fly, just to watch the folks at Security wonder about you.
I'll have these at Cirque, first come, first serve, free -- if you'll tell me a good yarn on some outrageous use for these classic pearls. Or if you will just take one.
One condition: If someone has a real need for these (sort of 14-24 through 14-28), let me know before Cirque. You should establish that you have or can get a TDC or equivalent puller. That would take priority over giving them away. In that case, if I got back my $5 that I paid for the box, I'd do fine, since I did salvage a Simplex FW from it.
Your smileage may vary.
