Pre-Swap deals on cool parts

We have recently been getting some good deals on cool parts, and finding things we forgot we had. Stock up for future projects, or build a whole bike around some cool component. Keep an eye on this list, because I'll be adding to it as I unearth various treasures in preparation for the twin cities bike swap this Sunday. These will be sold on a strictly first-come, first-served basis. If it doesn't sell this week, we'll have this stuff (and more) at the swap. Everything is NEW unless specified otherwise.

Sugino XD single speed cranks. This is the popular XD crank (standard Rivendell issue), but in a single-speed version. It comes with a semi-cheesy but usable 46t chainring, but the cold-forged crankarms are more than worth the asking price, in my opinion. Right now, we have these in silver, 165 mm and 170 mm lengths. $70

Shimano Alfine crank and bottom bracket set. Nice looking modern single-speed crank with 39t chainring and chainring guard. 170 mm arms, silver. External cup bottom bracket included. Chainline is 42 mm, which will work with Alfine/Nexus hubs and most single-speed/track hubs. $120.

Vintage Suntour XC Pro Microdrive crank (used). This crank is used by me, but the wear on the chainring teeth is minimal. There is some "polishing" on the crankarms from the insides of my shoes, but otherwise it's in great condition. Chainring bolt circle is 94/58 mm, which allows for some really interesting gear combinations (wide range ultra-compact double with bashguard, for instance). Included rings are 42/32/20t. Crankarm length is 170 mm. Great (and pretty) touring triple for those who don't care to push high gears. $150

Alfine front dynamo hub. I have these in silver 36h and black 32h. Can be used with or without a disc brake. These are more nicely finished than most of the other models of Shimano dynamo hubs. These have become my go-to dynamo hub when spending $250+ on a Schmidt hub is out of the question. $110.

Surly Instigator frame and headset (used). Size M (18"), black, includes FSA Orbit XL-II headset and Thomson seatpost. Overall, this frame is in very good condition, aside from a few very minor scuffs in the finish and decals. $350

Pug-front conversion kit (used). This includes a barely used symmetric Pugsley fork with uncut steerer tube and a Pugsley wheel with a Hayes disc hub and Large Marge 32h XC rim, Endomorph tire, and tube. $300
