Would anyone have a cheap, unused rear wheel to sell that is 11-speed compatible? I'm looking for one to use for my trainer during the Winter months.

I've been looking around and it seems like mavic aksium's will do the job for what I'm looking for.

I'm guessing you're wanting Shimano but...here's a cheap set of wheels on CL.

Finally put the gopro to some use on the bike. Just a bit of the descent off Baker from the weekend. Hopefully it doesn't get flagged for copyright...

For the Rapha nuthuggers (not too many on here i don't think?) they've dropped prices on their sale items for the zillionth time. Trade Team (Pro Team alt) Jersey $65, Super lightweight $95, lightweight bibs $155, lots of ridiculous deals.

A good time to hop on the bandwagon of quality if you've never experienced the nuthuggery of Rapha

Anyone here want a larger single-speed bike? From what I recall, 58cm. Black IRO frame, Campy Euros wheels w/quick release skewers, bullhorn bars with front Tiagra brake, Easton EA30 stem, RaceFace chainring. Very slight dent on top tube unfortunately. Front tire is a Conti 700x23, rear is 700x28. Flat mtn bike pedals with velcro straps to retain your foot. All black so very stealth. Used condition, so don't expect mint! The price for a new wheelset alone right now is $900 on CRC. So, let's say $260 for the entire bike. Will post photo if anyone's interested.

so the alibaba 'jaw breakers' are in. haven't had a chance to get out with them yet but here are the first impressions:

frame quality: thin, creaky plastic. the nose piece is pretty hard and it may get uncomfortable on longer rides.
lens quality: came with yellow, black, and a 'fire iridium'-esque lense. i found the optics on the iridium are weird, everything looks tinted blue-ish. The fire iridiums on my Split Jackets didn't have any 'tinting' at all.
overall looks: pretty awesome actually. looks just like a genuine pair. the arms are even size adjustable for your temples.

bottom line is that you get the utility you pay for, but you get more than $30 worth of style points!

can't decide if i wana keep them as they're a bit wide on my face lol

Well if you decide to sell them, depending on the color, I'll pick them up from you

[edit] love to see them tho! Very interested in the quality and if the lenses are interchangable

Anyone know of any good deal on wheelsets? Last time I asked I went and got my wheel all trued up. It lasted about 300km before all the spokes are falling out again. Either a rebuild, or maybe these??? Work called for some overtime while I was pulled over on the side of the road tightening all my spokes to get me home. Convenient. haha. What I really want is a pair of chinese carbon. I don't ride in anything other then perfect weather so I shouldn't be scared of the wet weather braking. haha

If you're jumping on and off curbs, then IMO, you should be looking at a more robust set of wheels with more spokes, none of this lightweight 12 spoke wheel. I have a set of old Shimano RS10 and have used them for at least 4 years now, in wet weather & off a few curbs as well, and they have stayed true. I've also had luck with my Mavic Askiums on my CX bike. Good luck on your search.

After some searching, I may buy some rims and hubs separately.

Kinlin XC279 Rims, and some circus monkey hubs seem to get some good reviews. Should be less then $500 with the build locally. With enough spokes, it should be a tough wheelset, and pretty light too.

Found in Richmond: A Norco XFR series bike that looks to have been stripped for parts. I will be turning it in to Richmond RCMP.

I've got some goodies for sale, folks.

Shimano 105 10-speed Partial Groupset
Left and Right shifters
Front and rear derailleurs
Front and rear brakes (Tektro)
10-speed cassette
Chain

Condition - 9.5/10 like new
Mileage - Less than 300km if even?
No crankset

Asking price - $250 or best offer? (not sure what's fair)

SRAM Rival 10-speed Partial Groupset
Left and right shifters
Front and rear derailleurs
Front and rear brake calipers (SRAM non-series, probably Apex?)
10-speed cassette
Chain
Crankset - SRAM S500 BB30 (if you even want it? Probably better getting something else.)

Condition - 9/10
Mileage - 2000km if even?

Price - $300 or best offer?

Shimano Ultegra 6700 Brake calipers
Front and rear - like new. $100?

I don't know what going prices are for 10-speed groupsets but my asking prices are for RS folks only and open to a reasonable offer. I will not list them anywhere else because Craigslist is full of hipster scum. Good parts, well maintained ready for your dream build, winter bike, throw it at hipsters, or to replace what's broken.

Not by me, but by Pacific Multisport because I overheard, but I think they have a SRAM 11-speed groupset for sale but I don't know how much. Just spreading the word and if you go there, tell them bcrdukes sent you!

Rapha.cc sale code "SALE10" for additional 10% off their current sale prices and free shipping.

[edit] ... LOL... So i bought a buttload of stuff last week and took delivery of the items yesterday. I just re-purchased the same exact order, so that I can refund the 1st one and get back the 10% difference. Damn asian mindset.

What did you go for? The Bumble bee or hamburglar outfit?

I picked up the thermal bibs, softshell baselayer (this is so win!), pro team baselayer.

Returned the Aerosuit (apparently you need a white mans body aka longer torso) and merino mesh baselayer.

I actually prefer "green hornet" LOL.

I didn't really need anything else but these prices are tempting me into buying a whole lot more...
