Hello all - a quick intro - I have been receiving the CR list for quite some time but have not actively gotten into the discussion - for me it has been a great learning experience. My name is Dan Rogers and I live on Bainbridge Island (a quick ferry ride from Seattle) and I have a garage full of old/vintage road and MTB rigs that I ride as often as time allows. I am 47 and rode rather much from about 76-85, worked at the High Wheeler Bike Shop in Boulder for some time, but did not keep up with it. I started riding again in 1994 and love old steel road bikes from the era I am most familiar with. Off topic, but I also ride "old" late '70's-85 rigid MT bikes. My earlier bikes were a Freschi Criterium (which I wish I had not sold!) and an early Trek 770 (which I wish I had not sold!).
As I now have 17 bikes and cannot open the garage door, I really need to give some of this away, so I suspect that as I get through everything I will be regularly posting. Nothing NOS here - I ride the bikes so these things are used. Please contact me off-list at firstname.lastname@example.org if any of this is of interest. I will have clothing, shoes, bikes and parts - anything I got free will be yours likewise.
First is FREE to a good home - a Campy old winged logo high flange 36-hole hub laced to a 27x1.25 Araya rim, Maillard Atom 70 5-speed freewheel - no clue on threading but if you want it let me know (should be about $20 shipping in the USA, or if you like I can remove the FW and hub and mail them without the rim). Never rode this one so cannot speak to condition - the hub spins fine. Incl straight lever skewer (a bit rough).
Second, a VG+ pair of Sidi Titanium quill cleat shoes - size 46 - they will actually fit an American sized foot! They fit exactly like my modern 46 sidi's as a point of comparison. These are leather soles with the ti cleat plate, full laces and not separate insole. I am not an expert but I think these came from the late '70's. Near new with modest wear on the soles, heel pads were added when they were new and it has saved the sole. Cleats are white NOS and also in great shape. These were my club and century ride shoes and are in great shape. $70 plus shipping - will ship worldwide for postage only.
As I get to them I will have 3 road bikes to sell (all 55-56cm) - an early '80's colnago super (fair condition - regular daily rider some years ago, complete bike all SR), a 1972 Negri (all original NR, 2 sets of wheels clincher and tubulars - great shape), and a Raleigh international frame set.
Thanks all - and many thanks for all the dialog and great information!
