Bicycle Quarterly Yard Sale

Time to clear out our workshop, so we are selling a lot of bicycle components that are surplus to requirements. All proceeds will go to charity.

These items are used. Most of these were used for our technical articles, so they have about 50-150 miles on them. There is some “shop-wear”, but functionally, these items are as good as new. (A few items are new or have more use, this is clearly marked.) Unless noted, only one/one pair of each item is available.

The prices do not include shipping. Payment is by PayPal only. First come, first serve – e-mail (heine94 at earthlink dot net) with your list of items you want to buy, we’ll confirm what we still have, you pay, we ship. It’s that simple. The prices are low, so things will go fast. No photos, sorry.

Note: Apart from Grand Bois products, none of these carry any warranty from Bicycle Quarterly or Compass Bicycles.
