Offered for sale to CR members are some really nice items - a Sturmey 2spd fixed gear, a Sturmey 4spd FM gear, a pair of Sturmey wing nuts, a Campag SR 27.2 seatpost, a Bernard Hinault yellow Turbo saddle and a Suntour Cyclone groupset from c1983. All of these items are really lightly used.

STURMEY ARCHER 2-SPEED FIXED GEAR 1930s 40H The TF gear offers a second
gear 25% below normal - I normally set these up with a normal gear of
about 72in - you then get a low gear of just over 50in ideal for
climbing those short sharp steep inclines. These are a wonderful light
and simple gear with very little to go wrong and they are my favourite
Sturmey gear of all time. They are in fact rather nicer to use than the
fabled ASC 3-speed fixed as they have much less backlash built-in. This
is the best Sturmey 2-speed I have had in a very long time - the bearing
surfaces are all in excellent condition and this hub shows only signs of
light use. It is supplied with a NOS 18T sprocket. It comes complete
with the correct top tube control (which normally goes for about 100 GBP
by itself), cable and seat tube roller. The buyer can have the option
of a special splined Sturmey freewheel for a small extra cost.

STURMEY ARCHER 4-SPEED FM GEAR Excellent - this was one of the Sturmey
Archer hub gears from the 1950s that was such a favourite in England
with many club cyclists. It has an aluminium alloy shell in excellent
condition - the spoke holes are very good and the shell is in very good
condition. It has 40 spoke holes. The FM is the medium ratio 4-speed hub
gear offering gears 12.5% above direct drive and 14.3% and 33% below
direct drive. This is a really nice range. A typical gear range would be
48in, 62in, 72in and 81in. The innards of this gear have been carefully
inspected and are in perfect working order - in the 1980s I was one of
the the very few recommended by Sturmey Archer to service their obsolete
gears so I do know what I am doing. The gear shows only signs of light
use - it is fitted with a quick release cable fitting. And it is
supplied complete with a trigger (this normally will cost about 25 GBP
on its own), cable and other fittings.
95 GBP If wanted I can supply a set of Sturmey wingnuts with this hub
for an extra 20 GBP.
STURMEY ARCHER HUB WINGNUTS in very good condition and from the 1940s/50s.
CAMPAGNOLO SUPER RECORD SEATPOST 27.2mm Excellent slightly used
condition - just a few very light marks below the insertion line. The
pictures do not do the seatpost justice as it is really in near mint
SUNTOUR CYCLONE GROUPSET This an almost complete groupset taken from the
c1983/84 De Rosa offered to CR members last week. The frame has been
sold - so the group is available. This bike had had only light use and
so the groupset is in excellent condition. Included is a chainset with
52/42T chainrings, 170mm cranks (one crank has a few light scratches
which can be seen in the photo), headset with perfect bearing surfaces
and virtually perfect adjusting nut and locknut, Italian threaded BB (if
this is not wanted a small price reduction can be made), rear derailleur
which is virtually perfect, a Superbe Pro front derailleur (for braze-on
fitting) in near perfect condition, and a brakeset with allen bolt
fitting with Dia-Compe aero levers. Additionally though not shown in the
picture are a pair of Suntour Cyclone 32H hubs which are at present
laced to Mavic GP4 rims with virtually no rim wear. If the buyer wants,
the wheels will be supplied complete - they have good tubs but the
shipping cost will then be greater... For the groupset as described
including the wheels
150 GBP ono
TURBO HINAULT YELLOW SADDLE in very good condition - it is slightly
grubby but I am certain this will clean very easily and a has couple of
small rub marks on the rear corners but it in real life it looks much
better than in the photo.
