    A set of Look Stop Dura 2 road-cartridge caliper pads, for which I no longer have any compatible hardware. The packet has been opened as I didn't read it when last changing my V-brake pads.

    Weren't they a set of the converters to put road-cartridge cartridges into V-brakes, not the pads themselves?

    Maybe if you took these as well then you could then owe me £2 which you could then use to buy Algo the coffee I owe him...

    Anyone interested in a Planet X Uncle John cyclocross frame and fork? I have not used it for most of the past year and was about to take it to the Bike Station but wondered if anyone here could use it? Its a blue aluminium frame size L (57cm) with Planet X carbon fork. It has an FSA headset and Shimano BB fitted. It is designed to take cantis or v brakes though the frame (not the forks) could take disc brakes. It needs a 27.2mm seatpost and a 31.8mm front mech clamp. Rear spacing is 135mm though I have run 130mm with no issue.

    Its been well used but latterly mainly on a turbo. It is in very good condition-there are a few reflective stickers on it from when it was my commuting bike.

    As I said it is going to The Bike Station so I am not looking for anything for it (not sure it is worth anything!) but might suit someone as a winter commuter or as a cheap intro to cyclocross. PM if interested.

    Hi GDR, I would be interested in the Uncle John if it is still available thanks. My current winter frame has seem out a dozen years and doesn't take guards so a cx frame would be a welcome upgrade.

    Laidback: I'll swap you a 700x25 inner tube, a crud catcher and a brand new Shimano 8 speed chain? Could throw in some cable ties to sweeten the deal?

    Not bike stuff: anyone want some red wine flutes? Free to a good home, a bad home or an intermediate home. Bought many years ago up the Cregagh Road when it briefly tried to have a "boutique". I just don't love them any more and I'm trying to avoid moving house with anything I don't actually, really want.

    I've put my Vulpine Epic Cotton jacket on eBay.

    Too good for non-cycling day wear and not really the right thing for Audax. I had plans for using it to commute but am working from home for the foreseeable future. It's waterproof, breathable and has lots of useful features. In the uncommon navy blue colour, size large, pretty much like new. £40 opening bid. Review.

    @cyclingmollie, sounds good, I would bid but that is also a description of the jacket I own. I do not use it too often either but seem to have spilt some bleach or something on the cuff.

    Well done both.

    How many CCE babies is that?

    Some will just about be starting on the 8-80 (and expecting suitable infrastructure).

    Congratulations. My brother might be looking to move his trailer on soon. Our children are getting just a smidge to large for it.

    Thanks @All. It's quite the experience so far. Looking forward to being able to teach her things. So far I'm mainly instilling in her economic grounding by whispering the total economic cost of each of her nappies to her whenever I'm changing her.

    @acsimpson - what sort of trailer is it? Let me know if you have recommendations or it comes on the market.

    Who would have guessed that the 'swap shop' thread would have a 'birth' announcement. Maybe we need a family news thread?

    Congrats Alex - great news!

    It sounds like Arob is considering the cost of changing his daughter so what better thread.

    Don't forget the cost of wipes sadly pennies are less effective even if they are cheaper.

    It's a revolution roller to seat. It's seen reasonable use so would be priced accordingly. If you have the budget my advice would be to go for a better one. The ability to convert to a buggy is the feature we missed the most.

    Pair of Schwalbe CX comp tyres, 700Cx30 (although for fitting them under a mudguard think of them as more like a 32 outer diameter given the knobbles.

    https://www.schwalbe.com/gb/offroad-reader/cx-comp.html

    A basic CX-y style semi-slick clincher tyre really suited to gravelly type commutery stuff more than actual CX racing. There's some Kevlary bits in there for puncture protection.

    Bought for a purpose I can't quite recall and used about twice, have been accumulating dust now for a few years and I'm never likely to use them soon. About £11-14 new each, I'd take a tenner the pair.

    I might forget to check for replies so send me a DM if you're interested.

    Shimano DH-3N72 32-hole dynohub. Seven years old, heavy use, but still rolls, albeit slightly grittily as if it might need some maintenance soon. Offered complete with Pringled rim and 28mm Gatorskin with bits of metal embedded in the sidewall courtesy of the van which ran it over, but not the tube or rim tape or anti-flat tape as I can re-use them. Ideal for a home electronics project.
