Spring cleaning

Man Town is in rough shape frankly its a disaster...its a little late for Spring cleaning but its on now. I want it dialed for this cross season...tubies are hanging from hooks, visions of organizers, work areas, etc...But while weeding through piles of I really need back issues of Velo News from 2001? The Buyer's Guides maybe but the actual VN probably not....I have found some gems. Some in pretty much perfect condition, some slightly worn but all too good to be just taking up space. All this stuff deserves to be ridden and ridden hard. 

Here is a list of some good swag from casa de chip...The creme de la creme is my Sycip cross frame...its pictured here in its original gangreen paint job....I had it repainted before last season in a nice dark gunmetal grey mettallic. It is a wonderful riding steel cross machine.

TT is 52.5 with a sloping TT 53.5 effective, Seattube is 46 center to center and 50 center to top, Headtube is 9.5 cm. I can sell it frame only or frame and fork.
