30 Jun 2011   I must be getting tight in my old age .. once upon a time I would identify a 'must have' on eBay and bid 'til it was mine. More recently I have missed out on the following items:
  •  Mongoose Expert $255 / my bid $250
  •  Roger DeCoster US $295 / my bid $290
  •  Diamond Back $177.50 / my bid $170
  •  Skyway TA US $455 / my bid $450
  •  Haro Sport £320 / my bid £310
Sometimes, not getting too excited about an item is the best approach. I was only prepared to pay $125 - $150 for a Nitto stem that was similar to one I purchased recently but some muppet paid $295 for it. Sorry if that was you! More…

26 Jun 2011   As promised, I have swapped the yellow tuffs out on my MS SuperMax for black Araya rims laced with gold hubs and nipples.  Which do you think looks better?  I would love your feedback..


12 Jun 2011   I have almost completed my Malvern Star SuperMax in black and gold however I am not convinced about the yellow tuffs though and are getting a set of black Araya rims laced with gold hubs and nipples. I will post photos of both when I get them back and you can help me decide!


29 May 2011   I am nearly finished by black and gold Malvern Star SuperMax.. However, I wasn't happy with the Yellow Tuffs I had bought for it as there was simply too much yellow. I am going to swap them out for normal wheels - gold Shimano hubs, gold nipples and black rims. More…

 

21 May 2011   I am constantly looking on eBay for an affordable PK Ripper .. can I buy five, sell four and get one for free? This punter in the UK has five mint frames he is selling with matching Landing Gear forks for only $3500.


20 May 2011   Dead Horse contributor, Colin, recently bought himself a toy - a polishing kit that he will use to restore parts of a upcoming feature road bike, a 70s Peugeot. His first attempt on an old, rough headstem is quite impressive - the photos do not do it justice! More…

2 May 2011   Picked up a beautiful Nitto MX-2 stem for a Malvern Star SuperMax I have in progress. This will replace a gold Suntour stem I had previously bought so I guess this is up for sale!


24 Apr 2011   Just completed and added photos of a Speedwell Sting CrMo to the site. I recently bought this immaculate NOS frame allowing me to complete the bike without the cost of stripping and painting .. More…

10 Apr 2011   Bought a set of red NOS Malvern Star CrMo SuperMax pads and a yellow set of NOS Malvern Star SuperMax pads from Bikecology. After a bit of mucking around, he finally sent me two yellow handlebar pads - so I've got one for sale if anyone is interested. More…

17 Mar 2011   Picked up a lovely set of Malvern Star SuperMax CrMo decals today from the same guy I bought the blue pads from.  Good old AusPost - they had been sitting at the post office for over a week but they did not bother carding it for me .. pic…

13 Mar 2011  Just bought a NOS Speedwell Sting frame and padset from a punter off OzBMX..  The guy saw the small graphic that I use on my avitar (a Speedwell stem decal) and assumed I might be interested. See pics here…

26 Feb 2011  The recent earthquakes in New Zealand haven't stopped local riders from hitting the road.
