I currently ride a Charge Filter Mid 2011, which is effectively a cross bike. I have come to realise that the groupset is pretty poor (Shimano 2300) and also fancy another bike for "nice weather" so that I can keep the Charge as my winter/training bike.
What do you think of these? It’d be used for club runs/sportives.

I'm selling my 105 rear mech. It was taken from a brand new bike and has only been ridden 15 dry miles before being replaced with a long-cage one.
The mech's in excellent condition (it's still got the luminous packing grease on it). The only blemish is a tiny cosmetic scratch on the underneath which you can see in the picture to the left of the cable clamp. Jockey wheels, spring etc. all like new. Cheers.
I recently broke down my old winter bike as some parts were beyond use.
The parts that remain are for sale for pretty cheap.

For sale is my 2011 Specialized Tarmac Comp size 54cm.I have owned the bike since June last year and am now selling due to a lack of space. The bike has been serviced regularly and is in very good condition. All the spec is original except a brake upgrade, the brakes are Ultegra 6700 series which cost £100 and are mint. On the bike are a brand new set of Specialized Espoir Elite’s worth £50. Included with the bike are a set of red Schwalbe ultremo zx tyres. They’re not new but are great tyres for the summer.
I don’t mind shipping the bike (uk) and will charge £60 to do so.

This is in excellent condition, very clean and having had low mileage, still functions superbly.
Most here will be familiar with this gear, but for what it's worth, Shimano say 105 'makes “pro-level" technology more accessible to part time racers and fitness enthusiasts. The Shimano 105 concept of "Smooth, Round and Natural" is consistently demonstrated in every component, giving its user a sense of satisfaction, pleasure and fulfilment.'

From having looked through a myriad of youtube videos on gear set-ups that I could see that the shop where I got my bike had set it up completely wrong. In fact, it was all over the place.
I've fixed the front de. so that the chain never rubs, and shifts smoothly and crisply.
The rear mech shifts flawlessly too, but for some reason (which - I can't figure out, a bit noob - sorry) the chain is "catching" when it is in the lowest gear (big cog) when I spin the pedals the right way, and if I spin the pedals backwards it actually hops down 1 or 2 cogs by itself.
