    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.

    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.

    Berto I think you have me beat!

    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.
  8. Um, anyone have any spare clipless pedals for a rookie that will fit a Trek 4100? ;g Maybe you guys can point me in the right direction because I know absolutley NOTHING about bike parts!! ;g

    Yeah, we've got a spare pair of clipless for sale. Wellgo's (spd) used, silver color $30 shipped to you. I can email pix if you like--just let me know if you're interested.

  10. 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.
