Well, I got there late! (2pm) and it was dry! and I did some gardening on the weeds around the duckboards (bits at the bottom of the banking ), and called Horatio and he turned up and we just rolled around for about an hour. It’s been a while since I rode that track, and after DISC, it’s a bit intimidating getting right up to the top of the banking - it’s the steepest track just about, in mainland Australia (have a look at the one in Rosebery in Tas if you’re down there). You sure it wasn’t that, and not the weather, that freaked people out?
OK, all the bits (a carful) I brought along for people to look at include some from my own collection:
a 58cm KenEvans Columbus Cromor track bike (less wheels) - it’s just too big for 5’11 1/2" me - Cinelli Criterium bars, Sugino crankset (not 75, AP144, takes track rings), proper Sugino bottom bracket, Turbo saddle;
two sets of bars and stems (one pr. of Cinelli Criterium 42cm), the other set with Exage brake levers - stems about 100 or 120mm
assorted axles, tyres (newish), chainring bolts , etc.
Other bits and pieces from Hillman’s (work), including Shimano cartridge bearing headsets, tracknuts, and other stuff;
unopened packets of 3 ea. chromed steel Campagnolo top tube rear brake cable clamps - super pimpy bling. Back brake? What? (Sorry). Maybe for the freewheel singlespeed . . . ?
a genuine brand new in box Campagnolo Pista 109mm bottom bracket English thread (any number of Yanks would soil their undies over this);
a pair of Campagnolo 50th anniversary brake calipers (can’t split these).
Horatio wants to get rid of some 32h Velocity Aerohead rims, slight use
So that’s it for my little outpost of Aladdin’s cave. I don’t want to eBay them without letting deserving local souls have a look first.
In return, I’m after a pair of decent 36H track hubs, or a good 27.2mm seatpost, or cash (Cash for the bits from Hillman).
Cheers, post or drop me a line <firstname.lastname@example.org>
