This Space for Rent

Parts is parts!


A few weeks ago I dug an old mtb frame out from a free pile and brought it home to see if there was anything I could do with it. This frame still had a crankset rusted into place, but with penetrating oil and a long lever I was able to extract it, at which point I looked it up and discovered that it had been recalled several years ago.

So I talked to my LBS and they said “sure, bring it on in and we’ll send it back to Shimano!”

So I did, and they did, and this morning a box with a crankset, BB, front derailer, and chain showed up at the LBS for me to bring home.

Not bad for a free pile.
