There are 9 wheelsets on the couch in that photo, more random stuff in the closet and 2 framesets not visible. The Penny Farthing is going to be a tight fit smiley

Fuck!
I just walked around my house and took pictures.
Old tubes and tires and busted bianchi

Some bikes with more tires and an old wheelset in the corner.

Handlebars and a new tire in reserve. And liquid soap.

The other day, Joe came over and just tossed his spencer on the pool table cause there was nowhere else to put it.

Oh god, I'll have to post some pics of my spencer mess when I get home. I really like the spencer on the pool table, that's pretty funny.

Girlfriend and I.

It is normally much cleaner. There is an under stairs storage area where the wheels live, and the boxes full of spencer parts (2x20 gallon containers, 3 milk crates) go into a closet. I'm sorting stuff for the various spencer builds I need to get done and putting stuff on CL.

They are, as memory goes:
Ultegra laced to red anodized open pro, front is radial
Chorus 8 speed laced to MA40
Veloce 9 laced to CXP21
Record laced to Open Pro
Cane Creek Volvos Campy 10, custom built for a former CC sponsored rider
Speedrific laced to IRD Cadence w/ bladed spokes, the rear is like 750 grams, it is silly light
600 laced to Mavic

and then random front and rear wheels. There are 9 or 10 polo wheels in the back yard, along with the tandem and 5 or 6 junk frames I've found abandoned on the street. In the picture to the left there is another box full of parts sitting infront of my tool chest.

I'd post some up but my spencer corner isn't such a mess anymore. I grabbed a bunch of janky old wheelsets that were clutter and put them outside in front of the house. They were gone within minutes.

Haha, there's a strong chance he's saving them for that build...?

Oh and it pains me to throw spencer stuff away too but out on the front of my house, it's not really thrown away. Someone grabs them for their own personal use. Maybe they rebuild a clunker or maybe they turn em in for scrap metal money. Either way, they're getting more out of it than I am.

those are freshly polished sakae sx cranks. can't sell em though; i'm saving them for the nishiki i bought from DDYTDY last week.

all the stuff there is waiting to be put on. most of it goes on the nishiki when it gets here, the carbon fork and cane creek headset and ergo bars go on the cannondale once i can find a stem i like for it.

fuck your build!

With all the crap sitting around all of your apartments, someone has to have a halfway decent 8/9/10spd Shimano wheelset that they'd sell me for cheap.

We'll talk in a few weeks when I have the money for a new wheelset.

Oh and they aren't 105s or Ultegras or Dura-Ace.

Everything is for sale, besides stuff that isn't...

It's getting organized, don't worry.

Milk crates are as follows:
"Nice stuff" - Ultegra/Dura Ace/Chorus/Record/Superbe level stuff (anyone need a groupo?)
"Okay stuff" - 105/Velcoe/Centaur/Suntour Accushift
"MTB stuff" - mtb stuff
20 gallon container #1 - random parts
20 gallon container #2 - bars, seat posts, saddles

Ouch...

There are only a few things not for sale, the Paramount, the Samson, the Bianchi, the Colnago, the Iron Horse, the tandem, the Penny Farthing and the Record groupo for the Paramount (going from 7 speed Dura Ace 7402 to 9 speed Record).

That'll probably be perfect timing. I'm trying to con my boss into selling me an old RB-1 frame that he has sitting around.

It's just the way of the webnets. People will rarely utilize the search function even if they are looking for specific information.
