Munga has sorted this - thanks - however I'd suggest anyone incapable of managing a three column table probably shouldn't be allowed to use a computer any longer ;)

the only hurdle is your privacy. obviously you will need to use your real name. you can choose to use the same avatar as your bna avatar, or not. your choice if you want to join. maybe sign off with your username till we get used to the idea.

still getting this off the ground, but the search function works well (as well as its going to - it all depends on how you list your stuff)
we have wtt, wtb, and wts, as well as general discussion, all searchable.

i've been listing a few things, teddancin has been listing a few things. dan and quang also.

Waz, in that case won't it be a lot easier to pick up a $3 28-6 to 31.8 shim from the LBS?

Shim? A, no.

I have a 58cm sq Centurion Prestige frame for trade. I was fortunate enough to get this frame from beside a guys shed for next to nothing. I have 'dated' the frame to May/June '89 from here and was surprised at how high it sat in the pecking order of Centurion frames with the Tange Prestige tubing.
So what would I like, a frame of similar quality at 54/55cm sq c2c. I have been told that finding a frame in this size with Prestige tubing will be like collecting rocking horse poo. So what about 653/753reynolds or Columbus SL/SLX?

English Headset

Postby commando » Sat Mar 29, 2014 2:00 pm

I posted in the BNA Wanted forum but remembered this old thread and thought it might get views from my target audience a little easier.

I'm looking for an old English headset to fit my Healing, I've missed 2 on ebay recently so am hoping somebody out there has got something for me. I'm gathering parts but can't put it together without this key piece!

Let me know if you've got anything.

Thanks
