lets talk about this.:)


I'm actually in reclusion right now with the bike parts for the most part,I'm only riding once a week at most with my focus in weightlifting.
However,I worked as a bike mechanic for about 4 years,did some sport class racing and at one time had five bikes to my name...so I have a decent collection of parts.

Here's my approx/off the top of my head inventory;

Berto!

Nothing wrong with being a parts ho! You should see my garage;G Actually it's getting a lot better as I've been working on excavating it.

I was a wrench in the bike business for numerous years, (I actually grew up in a bike shop). I've rep'd inside and outside for Trek/Gary Fisher/Greg Lemond.

The Bike Collection
Ours Burley Duet Tandem
Burley Trailer
Mine Lemond OCLV Campy equipped road bike
Masi Gran Corsa, Campy parts
Specialized Rock Hopper Comp Pro MTB, stock
Trek 730 Hybrid, turning it into my commuter
My wife's Masi Gran Corsa Campy equipped
Gary Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo MTB

The Parts Collection
Spare wheelset for the tandem, White Industries 36h go fast wheels
Spare MTB wheel set 9 spd
Mavic Reflex SUP 36h
Pair Vuelta Airline II 32h
Campy Record 8 speed hubset
Shimano XT 48h tandem hub
Campy 8 speed Chorus/Record Ergo brake and shift lever set
Spare 8 speed Campy cogset
Lots of spare chains, cables, housing, spoke, tubes and tires

The Tool Collection
Ultimate Professional Repair stand, (best portable stand out there)
Park TS-2 truing stand, (I build my own wheels)
All the tools I need to do a full overhaul of the bikes.

The only tools that I don't have, (and don't really need) is cutters to face the head tube and bottom bracket shells. I also lack a head set press but can build one of those easy enough.

Aye,I wish I had a headset press and facing tools as well.Dropout alignment tools come in handy...it never ends....;Q
I have built a few wheelsets over the years,but mostly I just re- tension machine built wheels these days.
Oh.....seatposts!!! I got 4 of those,all 27.2:)

It irks me that I have all this spare stuff but I still need another size seatpost and chainguide to get my new frame up and running.

Since I dont know a DAMN thing about bike parts, will they fit a Trek 4100??? Also, what kind of shoes would fit the cleats? I really want a pair of clipless, and from what I find SPD are about 60 new, but I need the tool, know-how, and shoes to go with it. I am interested, but need more info. 30 seems more than reasonable if they are in good shape.
