    Actually, there are two. One is in great shape, the other has some minute cracks around some spoke holes. I retired them both. They've been sitting on the shelf, and it's time to make space. Either you come and get them, or they go to the scrap man. I'm in La Habra.

    RIMS ARE GONE.
    SO ARE THE TIRES THAT WERE SITTING UNUSED IN THE GARAGE.

    Hello,
    I have a 2009 Commencal Meta 5.5 Medium frame with no shock and a broken main pivot bolt. If someone would like a project it is free or it will go to scrap for recycling.
    Thanks,
    Aaron

    Did the head snap off and the threaded part get stuck in the pivot axle?

    Hello
    Attached are pictures of the sheared bolt end. I have not tried to disassemble or inspect closely. I do not know what caused this failure but I do not huck, throw, or launch like this failure would indicate. I am not aware of any other issues with this frame but I do not know for sure. I rode this frame for about 2 years and crashed, high sided, low sided, tumbled and ghost rode it into submission. I think this is the part needed, http://www.commencal-store.co.uk/PBSCProduct.asp?ItmID=12502527 but no knowledge or guarantee implied.

    Below are a few really bad photos.

    I have moved on from this project and am offering it up to anyone who would like to resurrect this frame. I have extra derailleur hangers to fit.

    First come first serve, i.e. who ever shows up to collect the frame first gets it. Available in San Clemente, CA or I will ship it at your cost.
    If there are no takers it will be melted down and turned into electrical box fixtures and sprinkler keys.

    Peace and love,
    AaronK

    Anybody still running a Psycle Werks Wild Hare on this board? I recently got rid of mine and still have an extra shim set, v-brake bosses and shock linkage arm sitting in the garage. I also have some decals somewhere, but I'll have to find them. Hit me up if you can use them.

    I have a nordicflex home gym system i want to give away for free. Its about 9 years old but it works fine. Exercises: bench press, shoulde rpress, incline press, row, bicep curl, tricep extensions, lateral shoulder raises, cable rotator cuff exercises, lat pulldown, upright row, leg extension. The weight is adjustable of course, the diffeernt settings are various percentages of your weight when youre sitting on it, or various percentages of teh machine arm's weight for exercises where youre not sitting on it (curls, shoulder raises, etc.). There is plenty of resistance at the higher settings. This system makes the machine light weight and smaller profile. the footprint is about 18" x 50'" at the ground, except for the back support leg which is 26" wide. At 42" up the seated press grips are 35" wide but the yoke theyre attached to is 23" (extends above the grips hinging near the top). Total height is 78". the top end is pretty narrow. When lifting, the top part lifts up an additional several inches depending on the reistance setting. The lat pulldown bar, which is detachable, is 49".

    I have a Yakima roof rack collecting dust in the garage. Has two bicycle rails and a ski/snowboard attachment. 48" round cross bars and the Q towers. You'll need whatever landing pads fit your oem roof rack. It shows wear, but is fully functional. Pickup in Tustin.

    I have a 20" wheeled Giant XTC jr. up for grabs. It needs a new chain guide and a seat clamp bolt. It has a suspension fork from a different 20" bike on it now. It served Conner well for a couple of years but he has moved on so hopefully it can get another kid out in the dirt.[​IMG]
