Man, over the years I've accumulated a box full of single parts, they're a bunch of lonely parts that are incomplete without a mate. I've tried to start a thread to assist in trading singles, but it just fizzled out.. I'm still hunting though, always looking to pair things up for my little orphans... Its hard and sometimes it feels like a long drawn out game of concentration. Finding the perfect mate for them doesn't happen often, but when it does, it's a great feeling! Recently I found a mate for my single-gold Shimano hub andthe brother for my adopted-blue Finish Line grip!

Dope. It's a great feeling pairing things up.


I got a bunch of orphan stuff I'd love to find matches for too. flight crank arms, pedals, hubs, brake arms, bearings and about 15 lonely grips sitting in a box.

Over time, I was able to get these all matched up.

I've had less luck matching grips. Still holding out hope...
