I bought a paramount panto'd 3t bar x stem collabo in my sizeway (44w x 110l) for less than the cost of a set of new bars.

I got a pair of ultegra/open pros with a broken spoke for $20 from a guy I buy shitty used bikes from a couple weeks ago.

Ritchey tigged steel, not sure of year or model.
Shimano BR-AT50 cantis, Ritchey Logic 110/74 cranks, Nitto RM-013 dirt drop bars, Nitto stem, Suntour ratcheting barcons, SON dyno hub.

Purchased for about what the hub goes for new. Not sure what to do with it but it had so much stuff I like and all from one CL add I couldn't pass it up.

Also, I mentioned to the seller that I liked those dirt-drop style bars. So he pulls out a set of WTB/Specialized ones (marked RM-2)from some cupboard in his basement and tells me I can have them, too.

cross post, c-listin'. i'm psyched cause it's a nicely build tandem, lady is psyched cause spencer rides.

has rear rack mounts, so it's gettin one, and probably full fenders. this one is way more useable/functional than the co-motion i had (and considerably cheaper)
needs new stoker bars.

Hell yeah!

The idea is to put the parts from my cannondale daily beater on it, so 9 sp 105 and some ugly as shit wheels. Paint is already pretty beat up so I won't gaf. Dude said it's slx but I thought these things were 653. Adding to my suspicion is an old as hell, faded, handwritten sticker on the steerer tube that says "[illegible]53....[next line down]chromoly."

Pic is from the seller. I can't be bothered to take pix until I build it up. Sadly it will be a while until I get to ride it. My wheels are unbuilt (105 hubs, open pros, and butted spokes in hand) and I will be out of town for 3 of the next 5 weeks doing a spencer tour and festival/concert thing.

I missed some Ultegra/Open Pro CDs for $90 the other day because I'm poor and trying to pay for two people's living expenses. Major bummer.

Last year's camelbaks are 50% off on Jensonusa. Picked up a 2010 Capo, and if the new reservoir design is actually so much better that I end up forking down 30 bucks to update the reservoir on the bag it's still 20 bucks cheaper than this year's model.

Ummm, so I picked up a Ritchey Breakaway with a full Centaur group, open pros, travel case, Sidi shoes, Speedplay pedals, extra Thomson post, extra Ti saddles in AMAZING condition for fucking 500.00 the other day.

Do I win?

I already sold the frame and fork for 500.00 just to make my money back before I leave the country for a bit. The Centaur group is going on my Serotta. The group is in amazing condition. Wheels are in damn good shape.

This spencer is going to end up costing me 200.00. Got the frame and fork for 200.00 but had a crack and was re-welded.

Need 175 Campy cranks.
