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.

Mammoth Grand Tour, June 29, 2022 - Today was the half-way point through our week in the mountains. The first three days we had hiked. They were short hikes but had lots of climbing or difficult terrain. None of us felt like hiking again today.
Since I had brought my bike this week I thought today would be the ideal day to go for a ride. Frank and Stella spared themselves the trouble of bringing bikes, but in exchange for that convenience they were left with fewer choices of activity. They ended up doing some errands in town and taking a short walk around Lake Mary.
Tomorrow promised to be a big day scrambling on the crags of Clark Canyon. Although we had only reserved a half-day with the guide service, Ground Up, we did not know quite what to expect, and we all wanted to be rested and in good form so that we could enjoy whatever outing had been planned for us.
For a number of years I had wanted to ride down toward Bishop and then up CA168 to explore the ends of each road, then touch the Pine Creek Trailhead on my return to Mammoth. Such a ride would require a full day and would leave me drained afterward, even with the help of the assist motor. So, I settled for a Grand Tour of Mammoth, a ride I had done at least once before but hadn't ridden in several years and a route I knew would not leave me exhausted afterward. It seemed fitting to revisit this route.
I started by heading up to Minaret Vista, taking in the views, then descending to Reds Meadow on the west side of the Sierra Crest. On my way down to Reds Meadow I stopped at a spot where I noticed a lone pay phone sitting in the middle of the woods. Such an odd sight and one that I had not noticed before on my many trips down this road. Not only that, but the phone also had its own streetlight. An abandoned building stood some distance away. It looked like it may have been a store or ranger station, but the place was deserted.
The phone appeared to be intact, but there was no dial tone, and I didn't want to blow 50 cents to find out if putting money into the slot connected the phone to the network.
As I continued down to Reds Meadow the temperature increased, and I became sleepy as I descended. Although the road is nice and quiet, especially during the summer when it is closed to day-use auto traffic, one needs to pay attention while descending. A narrow patch runs the length of the downhill lane where a cable had been buried under the road. The re-patching left a lip that can easily catch a wheel. One needs to dodge from one side to the other of the patch as the latter zig-zags across the lane, often occupying the spot where the best line runs.
At Reds Meadow a small crowd of hikers was congregated near the store, and more were arriving and departing. Although I didn't stop to speak with any of them, I supposed that many of them were PCT and JMT through-hikers. They looked the part.
I returned up Minaret Road and continued over the pass at the top, descended past the Mammoth Mountain Main Lodge, then down toward town. But, before I got into town I saw that I had time to extend my tour. I turned left on the Scenic Loop (or northern escape route) and descended to US-395 before returning into town on CA203 where I picked up the Town Loop Trail.
At first I took the branch that went up Main Street, but that ended at a narrow sidewalk near Old Mammoth Road, so I returned to the bottom of town and rode the other way. The southern branch was more interesting, taking a scenic path through desert sage with sweeping views of Sherwin Crest and Mammoth Mountain. Eventually, that trail ended, and I got onto Old Mammoth Road and climbed up to Lake Mary Road, stopping to pay my respects at the White Picket Fence, where the grave of one of the first settlers is preserved to this day.
I continued up the Lakes Basin Trail to Horseshoe Lake where the water level was as low as I have ever seen it, then returned on the road, adding a loop around Lake Mary but not through the Coldwater Creek Campground before returning to the condo, satisfied that I had covered most of the interesting local trails and roads and had gotten some moderate exercise while saving my energy for the next day.
