  • Wanted: V-brake era XC components for Kid's bike project

    I keep kicking myself as I used to have most of these items, but you know how that goes with me and my buying and selling so I'm placing this wanted ad.

    I have a 14" Trek 850 hardtail I want to build up for my Son Connor - hopefully as a Christmas present and I am looking for a few old school v-brake era items including the following:

    Light wheelset - could be a mismatch of V-brake rear, disc front that'd be okay

    80mm XC fork - if it has both v and disc brake mounts even better

    cheapo headset - doesn't have to be fancy - just functional and 1 and 1/8th

    Narrow, low rise handlebars

    short XCish stem

    I think that's about it.

    Let me know what you might have laying around in the parts bin that you no longer need or want. they just might make a young kid really happy.

    I have an un-ridden very light Supergo(Weyless) aluminum low rise riser(20mm x 620mm wide)25.4 bar size. I have a new Tange threadless 1-1/8" headset removed when new from a late model marin I once had. Both are black colored and nice. I'll let you have them for free but shipping is on you. Let me know.

      Thanks to Dom I have a headset and riser bars on the way.

      Could still use other items though!

      Let me know what you've got.
