Free stuff and for sale
I need to do some house cleaning, this will probably be ongoing.
Specialized 450SL 29er wheelset, made by DT Swiss. Uses a 9mm thru-axle up front, which is pretty unique to DT Swiss/Specialized. 9mm QR rear. 6-bolt disc brake only iirc. Spokes could probably use some touching up. Free.
Specialized 26″ wheelset, rim brake only. Missing some spokes in the rear, front looks okay. Bring it to a shop to have them replaced, or learn to true wheels! Free.
Size 41/Mens 8 road shoes by Diadora, they’re old-ish road shoes that I inherited from someone. 2 bolt only. Nylon sole, could probably use a trip through the washing machine. Free.
Size 41/Mens 8 Specialized MTB shoes. Nylon sole, they’re in pretty good condition, good beginner shoe. $10
Bike light, XML emitter. Not sure how bright it is, everyone always exaggerates. Probably 500-600 real lumens? Comes with batteries and charger. Looks like the pic below, red crown though. Pretty reliable since I’ve had it, but I haven’t put too many hours into it (maybe 30?). Apparently the first thing that fails is the connector. And don’t leave it on high with no airflow over it, it will burn out the LED. $20.
I have more stuff on the way too, whatever rims and hubs I don’t end up using.
Can I have Specialized 450SL 29er wheelset?
Someone’s ahead of you Mikhail on the 29ers, I’ll let you know if he falls through.
Vannevar, check your email.
I’ve been thinking about giving clip ins another shot, now that I am doing more bike commuting. But my current shoes are MTB shoes. What do you mean by “two bolt nylon” in reference to your road shoes?
I am interested in checking them out. Or would the specialized be better for me? My MTB shoes are very boot like (as in hiking boot ish) which is great off road, but a tad aggressive looking for riding casually through Pgh and suburban neighborhoods.
road shoes are terrible to walk in. if you are biking to someplace where you will get off and walk, you want the mtb shoes.
Rice Rocket, I think that means I am interested in the MTB shoes.
BTW not necessarily what you’re looking for right now, but someone reviewed cleated shoes that look OK for casual use at http://antranik.org/the-practical-guide-to-casual-and-stylish-looking-clipless-shoes/
Swalfoort, they look sorta like this, definitely not stylin’, but good to see if you like the concept. I have maybe 10 rides on them? I ran them on my road bike before I got road shoes, and also twice on my MTB before I got some different shoes. Always worn with wool socks, so no funks to speak of.
It’s their entry level sole, so not their super ultra mega stiff carbon fiber reinforced ultralightweight sole.
Take both, see which one you like, save them from the trash.
Good plan. I’ll take both, and recycle the one that doesn’t work for me. Styling not the issue for me, but ankle high leather “boots” while riding in to work in the morning just doesn’t cut it. These are at least plausible in their use/function/appearance for my purposes.
Swalfoort, if you end up with a pair you don’t want, I’ll take them.
Oh good! I have some people local to offload some size 41 stuff onto.
Also Swalfoort if you’re going to give the clips a shot, I highly recommend a dual-sided pedal with SPD one side and flat the other, like so; http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/Product_10053_10052_175406_-1___202461
Excellent for commuting since in traffic you can use the flat side for a few strokes to get up to speed, then clip in when convenient and safe. Or just use street shoes or tennies to get down to the coffee shop or whatever. Love ’em. What I use on 2 or 3 of the bikes.
edmonds, I like the trail pedal idea better for your use case.
Push on either side, clip in when ready. I hate pedals that aren’t weighted so they’re never in the same position (unless they’re dual sided, then mash & go).
Yeah, also nice.
I just like the Rodeos for the wide cage. I often find myself wearing some wide clunks for some reason.
Sorry if this is a thread hijack but this seemed like a good place to put this.
I found what I think is a 29″ mountain bike rear wheel downtown a few weeks ago, posted it here, and no one claimed it. Having no immediate use for it, it is free to a good home. It has what looks like an LX-level Shimano rear hub (135mm spacing), a Shimano 8 speed cassette, and 32 or 36 spokes (I did not count). The rim is wide and it has about a 40c commuting tire with a Schrader tube on it. Everything looks to be in very good shape. It is not light at all, but would be a nice extra wheel if it fits your MTB commuter or ‘cross bike, assuming the correct spacing. Shoot me an email at jcm250b at juno dot com if interested.
did you happen to find this outside the frick building entrance on grant, behind some wrought iron bars?
It’s a good place.

No, it was leaning against a parking meter on Fifth Avenue, just past Chatham Center, where Fifth passes under Crosstown Blvd.
