What bike component do you far too many of?
Tyres - got set of fast rollers, replaced them on the bike they came with after ½ dozen rides 6 years ago, never been used since. But, one day, one day...
curved washers for bike brakes.
disk brake caliper shims.
Brakes and wheels. Not so much that I've got millions of them, just that even one or two spares is too many. And I've got enough spare wheels and brakes to replace every wheel and brake on every bike I own with a spare
Tyres and bars
cantilever and v-brakes seem to multiply in my spares box
I'd take a set of V-brakes off you if you need the space.. trying to build up an old frame for my mum and find I have 1 V-brake and one lever in my spares box. Trying to find another brake and lever...
Pedalhead of this parish has 18 surplus saddles, all high-end.
I have about 20 spare road wheels I have 5 euuhm 7 road bikes though. I have tyres all over the place from new, once uced prelovved to ragged to hell dunno at least 20 probably 40 most likely more.
Brake pads 30 sets? more most likely.
I have too its a 30k drive to a bike shop and they are in the sticks so rather expensive. Though we have one good one who actually stocks fat bike tyres and all kinds of hope bling.
Too many tyres here. I have been out for a skid ride just to burn through a rear tyre like I'm 12 again!
Anybody got a spare 32T 104 pcd 4 bolt chainring, of knackered condition? I'm looking to finish my pub bike - would pay postage!
I have a 32 you can have no problem
Inner tubes patched, brand spanking, cut up to make shims and liners
Cheap light brackets
Little flashing LEDs
I have a couple of too short handlebars that I keep meaning to give away
Saddles with bent rails
Inner gear cables in lengths that won't fit a rear but might come in handy for a front if I'm desperate
Plastic outer cable ferrules
Loads and loads of part worn brake pads, including three pairs of finned ones
Short lengths of chain off cuts
Some forks that need me to be able to afford to have the serviced before I use them, then I'll need a cheap frame and wheelset to bolt them onto
Crap mudguards/ fenders
About 8 Tesco torches ready to use as helmet lights before cheap Chinese lights were invented
Mercifully I've reduced the part worn tyre mountain but still have some patched TLRs for when I rip the next one.....
Brake cup washers
Broken cheap bike computers, magnets and mounts
Several pairs of worn pedals and cleats.
26inch tyres (1 26er, maybe a dozen pairs?)
Forks... I have 2 built up bikes but 10 sets of forks: 4 sets of Rebas, 4 sets of Revs, 1 set of Lyriks and a set of Fox 32
I must say this thread is making me feel much better about my collection...
Road wheels - 4 spare sets despite now only have one road bike.
Brake adapters (too many to count)
Brake levers - 3x hydraulic levers for some reason
