PostForum: Bike Stuff for Sale or trade   Posted: Mon Nov 30, 2009 9:21 am   Subject: Needed: MTB riser bars and MTB rear wheel
I'm looking for a riser bar with about 2 inches of rise, and at least 24 inches wide.

I'm also looking for a rear mtb wheel, true, with a decent LX-level hub.

I've got cash, plus lots of stuff ...

Hi Brokebike (can I hijack my own thread?):

Those Eno wheels worked out way better than I had ever expected. I've already ridden about 30 miles of trails with them, and they're still in perfect tru ...

A set of rear Bushwacker waterproof pannier bags in red. Pretty old, but not too beat up. $20 or trade for a decent saddle. I work at UK.

This is a UJB (Universal Japanese Bike) made in 1987. It's all chromoly, with a Deore group (at the time second-best to XT). It's got a 19 inch frame; right now it's set up for a 6-footer but it'll fi ...

It's pathetic that Veteran's Park is all we have, but it's still possible to ride for 45 minutes without repeating yourself too much. If you live close by, it's worth it. There's also a loop that isn' ...

muMutha'ucka's still squeaking. I put grease on all the parts on the top of the seat post as well as the rails of the saddle.

Grease won't migrate into the offending interfaces. Use oil.

Only if the saddle is low in tension, which would cause it to sag. If you tighten an already-tight saddle, fibers will break and you will shorten its life.

Squeaks and creaks come from metal to met ...

I finished cleaning up the frame today. I was able to use gel-type paint stripper to take the powder off the brake studs & crown race seat. I carefully applied a little at a time, let it bubble fo ...

Got my frame & fork back today from Metal Cleaners. It's an old lugged Stumpjumper made in a small Japanese factory. The powdercoat job they did was really nice. They sandblasted it first & ev ...

An update: I took the frame to Alex, and he performed a beautiful repair for $20. The repair will be undetectable (not that I really cared) after painting.
