Yard Sale Loot


Here are a few photos of stuff we'll be selling at the VO yard sale this Saturday.


We'll have some VO frames that are scratched or are prototypes. There are also a few classic frames, including a Mercian Superlight, two Motobecanes, a Jack Taylor Tandem, a Bottechia Pro that are owned by staff members or were used for reference.


There are a bunch of fenders and a few tires. Many wheels too.


 TA and VO chainrings, saddles, CLB brake levers, cranks, handlebars, racks, decaleurs, prototype gloves...


Kate, our company barista, will be pulling shots.

Finally, we put a few more things on the specials page.

So, my sister (all 5'2" of her) is looking at your Polyvalent mini-kits. Will the smallest size you're showing, 51cm, be a reasonable fit? I'm thinking it's a bit of a stretch. Would the Mixte in 51cm be better?

What's that turquoise bike at top 2nd from the left? Are you not shipping any items? I could use some Hetres...

you are killing me- wish i wasn't 3000 miles away!

Perry said...

The Mercian is 58 c-c, top tube is 57 c-c. It includes a nuovo record headset and bottom bracket and sr seatpost.

Apis, Please read the sizing post from a few weeks ago. You'll need more than just height to determine frame size. Send an e-mail to info@velo-... if you need more help.

Wow. I wish I lived in Annapolis. That looks like my kind of yard sale.

So will there be a lute concert to go with the espresso?

Can I get a ballpark range for the price and condition of the saddles? I want to know because I won't be able to make it and would like to request someone pick it up.

Thanks everyone involved for putting on a great garage sale! I am a happy man. Finally, something not in California...

That was a great garage sale! I'm happy as can be. That 2CV certainly was a big hit with the crowd. Nice to hear one again, it's been over 40 years. Thanks!

In the picture of the tires (Yard+Sale+fenders.jpg), what are the brown tires with the tan sidewalls in the background?

Helpless Romantic asks, "In the picture of the tires (Yard+Sale+fenders.jpg), what are the brown tires with the tan sidewalls in the background?"

I think you're referring to the Grand Bois Hetre 650Bx42 tires I bought at the garage sale. The tread is red in real life.
