Bike Items for Sale - Here's a photo journal of bike parts that I'm trying to clear out of my workshop.
Shipping is $10 or (actual shipping charges + (optional) insurance charges + delivery confirmation fee), whichever is greater. I will try to find cheapest shipping option (e.g. USPS for US Domestic delivery) or will ship according to your carrier of preference.
Some of the parts are new, some are used. If you think my item pricing is off or you're buying multiple items, please make me an offer.
I am selling everything "as is". But, if you buy an item that is dead on arrival, damaged in shipment, or you believe you got a raw deal, please contact me as soon as possible so we can work out a solution. Given the time involved in selling these items I am not making a profit on this and am more interested in seeing components and parts I no longer use but that have remaining useful life to find a home with other bicycle enthusiasts, where they will be used instead of collecting dust in my workshop.
Contact me at the following . It will help if you include the links to photos of the items that interest you. All prices are in US Dollars.

|Bike Ridden:||Power Pursuit|

Winter Solstice Century, December 13, 2008 - This ride started at Christmas Hill Park in Gilroy, then traveled south around the eastern side of Hollister on Fairview, Santa Ana Valley, and Quien Sabe Roads, then south on CA25 to Pinnacles National Monument. The route returned much the same way except for skirting Hollister on the western side via Cienega Road, Union Road, and CA156.
The photos are mostly scenery as I missed many people photos when I erroneously thought the turnaround was at the Pinnacles visitors center, not at the first summit south of the monument entrance.

Reds Meadow, September 6, 2008 - Ron Bobb and I started from our condo near the Eagle Chair lift and rode up to Minaret Vista, then down to Red's Meadow. After an extended break, we rode back up to Minaret Vista, then down into town where I proceeded to buy a new water bladder. After our shopping stop (and a stop at the local Starbucks) we rode up Old Mammoth Rd., then down Lake Mary Rd. and back to the condo.

Sierra Azul, August 2, 2008 - I started from home in Sunnyvale and rode to Los Gatos, then up the Los Gatos Creek Trail.
The top of the trail was closed for some sort of maintenance, and the detour went up the face of the dam next to the spillway as in the old days. I took Alma Bridge Road a short distance to the Limekiln Trail.
The Limekiln Trail was an old paved road, the pavement visible in sections. But the old road had washed out in a few places, making the going slow and requiring portages.
The first of these traversed what appeared to be an old quarry. The second was a slide that covered the old road, requiring climbing over the slide.
This marked the start of the main climb to the ridge. The climb went in fits and starts, climbing steeply for a hundred yards, then leveling off and following the contour before commencing another steep climb.
At the ridge I decided to continue straight on the Limekiln Trail that crossed the ridge and descended a few hundred feet into Soda Springs Canyon before climbing along a spur ridge along a row of power lines. I stopped briefly to photograph a spring in the face of a limestone outcropping, similar to the one in Stevens Canyon.
I had seen only three other people since leaving Alma Bridge Road: a couple of cyclists descending the Limekiln Trail and one hiker climbing the trail, whose speed I seemed to match the entire time. The only other creatures were swarms of small flies that seemed to be attracted to my salty sweat. The flies were especially persistent on the upper section of the Limekiln Trail.
At the top of the Limekiln Trail I reached a junction with the Kennedy Trail and the Woods Trail. I continued on the Woods Trail, stopping for several minutes at what appeared to be the highest accessible point on Mt. El Sombroso near some power line poles to take several photos and then continued down toward Hicks Road.
The descent started moderately, climbing again for a short distance before starting a longer descent. I paused a few times to admire the view east toward Morgan Hill and the north face of Mt. Umunhum nearer at hand.
About a half-mile from the top I passed a lone cyclist who was resting, having just finished walking his bike up what was to be the steepest section of trail I was to see this day. The trail was indeed steep and rocky. It would be a tough climb on any bike.
At the bottom of this steep section the Woods Trail leveled out and became a broad, pleasant meander through wooded vales alongside Rincon and Guadalupe Creeks. There were a few short climbs, but most of the way was level or downhill.
At Hicks Road I descended to the north, took Shannon and Kennedy Roads back into Los Gatos, then rode home.
Majors, July 30, 2008 - This was a weekday ride I took on one of my days off. I rode out to San Gregorio, down the coast to Davenport, detouring to Davenport Landing and along Cement Plant Road, then up into Bonny Doon and Smith Grade Road, and back to the coast again on Back Ranch Road that goes down Majors Ridge to the old railroad siding of Majors. Then I continued into Santa Cruz, north to Felton, and home.
Aquinas Trail, July 20, 2008 - A short Sunday afternoon ride to Los Gatos, up to Lexington Reservoir, around the back side of the reservoir on Alma Bridge Road, then back to CA17, across the highway, then up Montevina Road to the top of the El Sereno Preserve. Then I took the Aquinas Trail down to Sheldon Road in Los Gatos before returning home.
East Bay Tour, July 12, 2008 - A loop ride with Ron Bobb from Chabot Regional Park through Moraga, Lafayette, Martinez, then west along the Carquinez Scenic Drive with a short detour to Port Costa, San Pablo Road past the refineries, then Pinole Valley, Castro Ranch, and San Pablo Dam Roads, Wildcat Canyon Road, Grizzly Peak Blvd. Skyline Blvd, and Redwood Road back to Chabot Regional Park.
Highlights include the sighting of a great horned owl on a post (or a very life-like fake—it was very still, maybe sleeping?), and a family of wild turkeys above the UCB campus.

San Benito Enduro, February 9, 2008 - Also known as the Low-Key Megamonster Enduro. After a twelve-year hiatus, and a slight route modification, the Low-Key Megamonster Enduro was revived. The day was bright, sunny, and warm, a marked change from recent cold and wet weather we had enjoyed for the last month and a half. Altogether some 70 participants cycled 100 kilometers or 100 miles of CA25 from Paicines, CA to a turnaround point at CA198, 51 miles to the south.
