Need some room in my garage so I’ve gathered up all the bits I no longer use and listed them here.
All prices include UK postage, but cash on collection is very much the preferred option (South Lincs, about 8 miles from the A1). I’m open to offers, especially if you want more than one item

Nearly New: Pair of Continental RaceKing Supersonic 26”x2.0”. I’ve used them twice, a total of about 4hrs, but just didn’t get on with them. Everyone else seems to like them though, they always get good reviews. They are obviously in excellent condition, still got the little bobbly bits from the moulding on the tread blocks and everything. I used them with tubes so no sealant residue inside. RRP is about £90 for a pair so a good chance to grab a real bargain.
Rare 1.5” Continental XC 26”, the best mud tyre ever made, no idea why they stopped making them. I’d been after some for ages but got a bit carried away and ended up with three, which to be honest is one more than I really need. This is the lighter folding version. Bit of old sealant on the inside but the tread is in good condition.
Shimano XTR-Shadow M972 rear mech long cage normal rise. Excellent condition with BRAND NEW jockey wheels. Couple of scuffs if you look hard enough but otherwise very good, The jockey wheels are actually off a Saint mech, the posh ones with bearings rather than bushings and have never been used.
NEW Gusset ISCG05 adapter. Brand new, removed from the package, found out I actually needed an ISCG03 so I put it back in the bag again. Will convert pretty much any frame with no ISCG mounts to ISCG05. Note that it will not work with press fit bottom brackets.
RETRO Shimano XTR M952 left front shifter. This is a three speed unit but could be used with double chainsets, you just have a ‘dead-shift’ on the last press of the button. Couple of scuffs and scratches but works very well. I’ve been using it with a modern M970 front mech and it’s been fine with that.
Shimano XTR M970 front mech. It’s a triple but could be used as a double with judicious setting of the limit screws. Usual scuffs and scrapes and marks from chain rub but it works perfectly and the pivot bushes are fine. 34.9mm clamp and it’s the swing-out kind rather than the dangle-down kind. Cable can pull from either top or bottom.
Tacx I-magic/Fortius steering frame for the virtual reality trainer. I’ve had it a few years but haven’t used it since about this time last year, which is why I’m selling it. It worked fine then but I haven’t tested it since. Fits any bike with standard QR forks. RRP is £185
RETRO Hope TI-Glide rear hub on Mavic X317CD rim. The wheel is from 1998. The hub has red flanges and silver centre. The bearings are less than 200 miles old but the pawls could probably do with a service shortly, works fine though. The rim is a Mavic X317 with the much sought-after CD coating. I have removed the stickers. I think the spokes are DT but can’t remember for certain, they are definitely stainless though and there are 32 of them. The spider for the disc is included. Also included are three brand NEW spare bearings, an end cap, three hub spacers and a lockring.

Both wheels £130
RETRO Pair of two Hope 5 bolt rotors, the rare 203mm/8” diameter ones. Both have loads of life left. Selling separately to the wheels as these may be a bit large for some tastes. £20 each, both for £35
RETRO Marzzochi Junior T triple clamps forks. 150mm/6” travel. Coil sprung, oil damped. 11/8” straight steerer, which is 217mm long, should be long enough to fit pretty much anything. It has a star nut in place. International standard disc brake mounts and V brake mounts. I think they are the 2003/4 model. The stantions are perfect, no dings or scratches and no loss of oil. The lowers are cosmetically scruffy.
RETRO Coppi K14 road frame with Mizuno carbon fork. It’s a 56cm seat tube and 56cm top tube. I’m 5’11” and wouldn’t really recommend it for anyone much shorter than me. Weighs about the same as my new Planet X SL carbon frame, although that’s a bit smaller and fits me better, which is why this is for sale. Gorgeous fillet-brazed welds. I have drilled the cable stops for full length outers. Usual scratches and paint chips but no dents or cracks. As an extra special super-duper free bonus item it will come with a USE Alien seatpost with the upgrade Cyclops head (OK, it seems to be stuck, I can’t move it) Mpart headset also included but it’s not great.
RETRO Pair Ultegra hubs on Vuelta rims. The silver hubs and spokes look really good with the blue rims, trust me on this. I’ve removed the stickers from the rims. They will take 8/9/10 speed cassettes (or even 7 speed with the special spacer) I’ve removed the stickers. Nice and true, no dings or dent, few scuffs as you would expect. Wouldn’t hurt to give the hubs a service though.
RETRO Hope C2 Pro lever and Giant MPH calliper, front brake. Number 3 for a 160/165mm brake disc (not included). The much soughtafter Goodridge braided hose, decent pads. International standard mount. Owner’s manual.
RETRO Definitely the rarest item here. Shimano XTR/Dura-Ace UN91 square taper bottom bracket with Italian thread. Excellent condition, it has done one year on my summer road bike, but now I’ve changed cranks. Few cosmetic blemishes, but who’s going to see it? I know you will not find another one of these for sale at the moment (I remember how hard it was for me to find this one!) 113mm axle.
RETRO Shimano XTR/Dura-Ace octalink bottom bracket. Italian thread 109.5mm axle. Excellent condition. It has done one season on my time trial bike, but now I’ve changed cranks.
RETRO Azonic World Force riser bar 1998. This was the bar to have back in the late 90s and it’s still a very good bar by modern standard. Double wall, standard diameter, 650mm wide. 55mm rise. Cosmetically it’s not very good but most of the scuffs and scratches are hidden by the grips and stem.
Easton Vice downhill stem. 50mm 10degrees. 11/8” Standard diameter. Generally very good condition, couple of minor marks.
Magura 160mm disc rotor, wavey, laser cut. Good condition, very little use. 6 bolt.
Chris King top cap. 11/8”. Red. Little scratch on the top, otherwise fine..
Kona seatpost. 30.0mmx350mm. Black. A bit scratched below the line, a little faded above it, but sturdy enough.
Shimano Alivio front hub silver 36 hole
NEW Shimano 105 lockring for 11t smallest sprocket but I’ve used 11t lockrings with 12t sprockets before and they’ve been fine.
Shimano Deore rear skewer, black. Couple of minor scuffs.
Xero Lite1 front skewer, black. Couple of minor scuffs.
RETRO Hope titanium skewers, pair, red. Not great cosmetically but functionally fine. The rear is very slightly bent, and has been for years, but this causes no trouble at all.
Specialized stem 100mm 11/8”, odd mix of metric and proper units but you know what I mean. For oversize bars. Black. One little mark on the faceplate.
NEW Met water bottle 500ml white
NEW Lazer water bottle 50ml black
Both water bottles £8
Bontrager RL bottle cage. Black.
