A few bits...

I've decided that butterfly/trekking bars aren't to my liking on the touring bike so I want to change back to drops. I just prefer the position and the reach that they offer so why fix what aint broke?

So I've got a few bits that I used in the conversion, all with signs of use obviously but in good nic and perfectly usable. With the exception of the bars, everything will be sent via Royal Mail and all prices include postage to UK addresses.

First off is a BBB Trekking Multibar, fits a stem with a 25.4mm clamp. I'd like £14 £12 for it.


Secondly I have a compatible BBB Highsix 110mm adjustable stem. It can be adjusted +/- 40 degrees and has a 25.4mm clamp. £20 £18 is what I'm asking


Also available is a pair of Shimano Deore V-brakes in black, front and rear. No shoes included as I ditched the originals and fitted my own Koolstops which I'll be keeping. Noodle, springs and cable rubber included. £20 £18for both.


Shimano Deore (M590?) V-brake levers, again in black with 22.2mm clamp size to fit standard bars. £15 £13 for the pair.


Finally there's a pair of Shimano Deore 9-speed Rapidfire shifters, black again and same bar clamp diameter. I'd like £22 £20 for the pair.


I'll post pictures as soon as I can but if you've any questions let me know.

Edit, more items below...

I've decided I want rid of the MTB chainset too, the gearing is too low for my liking and I want the simplicity and reliability of square taper technology back. The gearing is 42/32/22, the format is Hollowtech 2. The end cap for the LH crank and the inner axle cover are included as well as 3 2.5mm spacers (well 2x 2.5 and 2 more that make up to 2.5mm) to accomodate 68mm BB shells. The BB-51 cups are there but the bearings don't seem so smooth to me, when I removed the cups after 5 weeks of being installed there was a fair bit of water behind them that may have penetrated the bearings somewhat but I have not disassembled them to check. £28 please for the chainset and BB


There is also the 9-speed HG50 cassette with 11-32 ratios, very little wear on it, maybe under 200 miles in toal and in good condition. A little bit of rust here and there but nothing too bad, I'll give a good clean before sending it. £5 please.
