Used parts in the back room #

We keep a number of used parts in the back room, usually on the shelves along the secured side of the fence. Unless labelled (and thus belonging to other volunteers), most of these are higher quality parts either donated to us or removed from brand name bikes that could not be refurbished.

These may include parts such as:

  • Dropper seatposts
  • Hydraulic and/or disc braking systems
  • Bottom brackets
  • Groupsets
  • Series grade shifters
  • Saddles
  • Aerobars
  • Forks

We occasionally get quality, brand name bikes in need of parts for refurbishing (ie: Giant, Specialized, Trek, Norco, etc). Parts in the back can be used for these type of bikes. Be sure to price accordingly. Any quality parts that are donated to us should be sorted and stored here.
