Hey fellow Hubbers.

Hoping you can help.

I need a 27.2mm 400m seat post.

Doesn't need to be anything fancy, it's for a commuter build.

Drop me a message

Hi folks, I'm looking for a shim/adapter to allow me to mount a 34.9mm derailleur clamp on a 28.6mm tube (ok my calipers said 29.3mm but I'm guessing that's paint as 28.6 is the standard size?). I've heard that you can make them out of aluminium cans, but I may as well try to get the real thing before going the McGuyver route. Apparently they used to be supplied with the FD if you bought one new, so I'm sure there are some lying around in drawer a man-cave somewhere.

Thanks! oh and technically I need 2 of them.

Hi fellow hubbers

I’m looking for a Morewood Kwela derailleur hanger? 

I’m using my old Kwela as my touring/bike packing rig, need a spare hanger for just in case.

The kwela used a hanger that was commonly available at the time, I forget which other brands used them though.

I'm sure your lbs could help if you take yours in as a sample.

you would have better success selling them via the classifieds section.
