Cycling gear and components to give away or donate

Hey there. I’m a McGill alum and former MCT member, as well as an ex road and cyclocross racer here in Mtl. My name is J-R. Fellow MCT alumni used to refer to me as “Junior”. Anyways, I accumulated a lot of equipment over the years that I want to donate. I would like MCT forum members to have first pick, and any leftover items will be donated to The Flat Bike Collective. Please get in touch with me via PM if there is anything you would like. I will keep the list updated and cross out items that are donated.

  • One rim brake Boyd carbon rear tubular wheel with a Campagnolo freehub body. It has a Campy 10 speed 11-25 cassette installed, and a Schwalbe Racing Ralph tubular tire still glued to it. Rim is old school and 19mm wide. I don’t know if anyone will ever want this item, can’t really get much niche than this. Maybe use it for an art project? Matching front wheel is unfortunately too worn out to give away.

  • One Enve 2.0 carbon fork tapered 1-1/8 to 1-1/4, painted purple with a cyan accent inside the fork blades. Has a few chips on it. Rim brake. Steerer tube is 7-1/4" long. Axle to crown is about 365mm and rake is 43mm.

  • One very used Fizik Arione with manganese steel rails.

  • One used Selle Italia SLS saddle with steel rails and cutout.

  • One brand new 9 speed Shimano chain.

  • One FSA K-Force 31.6mm carbon seatpost with 32mm of setback.

  • One roll of unopened CX tape to glue cyclocross tubular tires the “Belgian method”. Also very niche. I can explain if anyone is interested.

  • One Shimano branded cowbell used to cheer at the 2013 Louisville Kentucky Cyclocross World Championships won by Sven Nys and Marianne Vos.

  • One 10 speed Campagnolo Chorus carbon crankset with 46-39 chainrings, also comes with a 53t chainring. Needs new bearings. It’s a very light crankset that should also work with 10 speed Shimano drivetrains. Crank arm length is 170mm.

  • One pair of grey Look style cleats that I was using for Toguri training sessions. I don’t know if they still have Look pedals on their bikes?

  • One pair of very used Bontrager carbon sole road shoes, size 42. Match them up with the Look cleats and you have a dedicated pair of shoes to train at Toguri.

  • One Air Attack helmet with visor. It has a cracked rear brace that can probably be replaced. Good for time trials on the cheap. Size Small.

  • Two used Shimano 11 speed 11-28 cassettes, 105 and Ultegra.

  • One used 10 speed Campy cassette 11-25 with lock ring. Also have the Campy proprietary lock ring tool that I can give away with it.

  • One used Miche 10 speed Campy cassette that fits on a Shimano splined freehub.

  • One Vittoria Corsa CX tire with black sidewalls, brand new, 700x23.

  • A set of used Campagnolo Centaur short reach rim brakes, double pivot front and single pivot back. Comes with a set of brand new brake pads.

  • A classic aluminium bottle cage.

  • Front and rear Campagnolo Centaur 10 speed derailleurs (perfect for downtube or bar end friction shifters to build a winter bike).

  • One Pioneer SGX-CA500 GPS head unit. The on/off button is worn out and can let water inside the casing, but it still works. I used to put a piece of tape over it when it rained. Better than nothing!

  • Two pannier racks, one of which is heavy duty.

  • One “Via” pannier with a roll top “dry bag style” design that is 100% waterproof (says so on the front badge).

Taken items in list are up to date.

Good Guy JR


Helmet is still up for grabs, I forgot to mention that it is size small!

Is it possible to convert the wheel to fit disk brakes on it relatively easily?
And if so, is the matching front wheel gone or can parts still be salvaged ?

(I’ve started cyclocross this year and am contemplating tubulars but since I have a weird frame and little experience I’m not yet ready to invest in a proper set.)

Hey @sebseg, unfortunately converting the wheel to disk brakes would require getting a new disk specific hub and re-lacing the rim with new spokes (reusing spokes to build a wheel can be risky, plus spoke length can vary with new hub). It would probably be easier and cheaper to purchase a used disk brake compatible tubular wheel at that point.

But I can for sure unglue that Racing Ralph tire, give you a front and rear set of Racing Ralph tubular tires, and also pitch in a Challenge Fango tubular tire on top! They would need a cleaning but I’m pretty sure they can still hold air. Might have some tubes of tubular glue to give you as well, plus that CX Tape.

The matching front wheel has a cracked braking track, not what you want on a carbon rim. It’s unfortunately not fixable either. Riding carbon rims with cantilever brakes on a muddy/sandy course looks great but is silly in retrospect. Only thing that is salvageable is the non disk front hub.

Ah ok yeah that’s harder than I imagined! In that case I’ll wait & see.
I have another issue because my bike requires a QR rear but a 12mm TA front… so it will be difficult to find a compatible wheelset.

Hi! Could the wheel be used for indoor training? Let me know!

Hello Théodore,

Since it’s a tubular wheel and you have to glue the tire on the rim, I wouldn’t recommend it for indoor training.

Hey I’m interested in the helmet!

Awesome! I’ll put it aside for you, I’ll send you a DM to schedule a pick up time.

UPDATE: I am taking the balance of the items and donating them to The Flat Bike Collective at the end of the week (Thursday December 2nd 2021).

Thank you all that came and collected their items!


Hi, bit late to that party… has everything gone? Would have been interested in the Boyd campag wheel.

Hi! yes, everything that wasn’t claimed has been donated to the Flat Bike Collective. You can always go look for it there when they’re open, it might be available! (they’re in the SSMU building next to Gert’s)
