Posted a post the other day asking for recommendations on ALU TT frames, and I'm stalking a couple of Ribble on ebay so should be good there.
The plan is to build it up as a bit of a hodge podge. I've got my Carbon Tubs, so am fine there, but need basically everything else.
If anyone has any SRAM Apex/Rival bits mechs and chainsets kicking about, whatever condition, I'll definitely make a sensible offer. SRAM 500TT shifters would also be considered.
I also need a set of base bars and extensions, again, anything really considered as long as its not carbon.
Unfortunately, I have too many bikes (I know, there shouldn't be such a thing) and the time has come to admit I'm not doing this one justice - my gorgeous Cervelo S3 has to go. Pics are on flickr here - http://tinyurl.com/ktqyz4u.
Spec as follows:
Cervelo S3 58cm - 2011 frameset with 3T Funda Team fork, bought brand new 1 year ago
Ultegra 6700 groupset
Rotor crankset with KCNC cobweb rings
Fuerte Bici 50mm carbon clinchers
S-Works carbon bar, Colbert carbon stem
(pedals not included)
EDIT: bit of additional info -
Crank length - 172.5mm
Chainring sizes - 50-34
Looking for a track bike that will be suitable for road use (ie. brakes) whilst also being able to be used on a track.
Currently looking at a dolan pre-cursa. Other suggestions in this price bracket?
I am having a bit of a clear out of all my bits and pieces at the moment so have the following items for sale:
3T Arx Team Stem London Edition - 100mm
I brought this to fit on one of my commuter bikes which is now for sale in a separate page on the form so am putting this stem up for grabs for anyone who missed out on the limited edition London 2012 designs last year.

Official spec is:
Material: AL 7075 T6
Decided to sell my team carbon as I am bored of fixing it, someone could grab a bargain I'm sure:
Rear wheel problem, my rear wheel is making a clicking sound when riding, it does not make the sound unless I am on the bike. The sound happens both freewheeling and when pedalling. I have tested the wheel on a friends bike and found the same problem.
Any solutions to this or will I need to get it professionally serviced?
I was in Morrissons doing a lunch time shop and saw a chap wandering the isles with this delectable looking bike! (http://rittecycles.com/carbon/vlaanderen-2013/) Never seen one before but it looked super swish! Does anyone no anything about Ritte Bikes or own one?
I was trying not to stare at it to much but i was transfixed!
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.

This is a call for help, or more simply, a plug for a good cause!
I am a 3rd year photography student at the Cambridge School of Art (Anglia Ruskin) and as a collective my class is currently fundraising for our London Degree Show later in the year.
Three of us, including myself will be cycling from Cambridge to Paris and then all the way back to help raise funds for the show which we have to organise as a student project, no input from higher powers! Money in the arts is sparse, for us mere students anyway(!) so we are relying on good ol' generosity.
For sale is my early 90's 54cm steel Ribble made from Columbus SLX tubing with a Cinelli botom bracket shell.
Dura-ace: Bottom Bracket, Chainset, Hubs, Downtube shifters, front and rear derailleurs, headset, cassette (spare available), chain
Shimano 600 (the range below DA in early 90's): Levers, brakes

Seriously nice bicycle, bought from a chap who used to do hill climbs on it in the early 90's, bit small for me. Should really be hung on a wall as it's so nice.
