RE: [The-Foxboro-Cycling-Group] New chain rings for bike.

Hi Tom,

 

Besides posting on Craig’s List, I suggest that you join The BikeSpeak Forum: http://eastprovidencecycle.com/bikespeak/reg.cfm

 

It is a National [even International] Bulletin Board for cyclists of all abilities and interests.  There are general discussions as well as special categories such as Tech Talk, Repair & Maintenance etc.

 

It is “hosted” by numerous cycle shops around the country. I use the portal provided by East Providence Cycle but I’m sure you can find others if you prefer.

 

When you join, you’ll see that they state: Do not post products and services sought or for sale and links to the same. Help keep your Forum commercial free.”  However, there are many people who build, repair, restore, modify bikes etc. and there is a lot of discussion about obtaining parts and sharing suggestions.  Quite a few of the participants exchange e-mail addresses for off-line discussion and mention sources without being overtly commercial.

 

In addition, most standard bike shops have boxes of old parts laying around and you might be able to find your parts by simply calling a few.

 

Good Luck,

 

Harvey Smith

Subject: [The-Foxboro-Cycling-Group] New chain rings for bike.

 

Hi,

 

I'm reconditioning my 1984 bike and I'm looking for chain rings.  I really don't want new ones.  I am replacing parts with the ones that were used on bikes of the period.   I want parts to keep the original look and functionality.  Anyway, I have been searching through hundreds of listings on E-bay for 42-T and 52-T chain rings.  Does anyone know of places to look for chain rings other than E-bay?

 

Thanks and Happy Holidays!

Tom
