For sale: Rubber Grips, cafe (rear wheel) lock

Alright, this should be the last for sale post for a little bit. Sorting out “the bike workshop” I found a few more things that should be passed on to someone who can use it.

Purchase/Ordering Notes: Price does not include postage. (Postage estimate for US orders is between $3-8) If you are interested, please message me at with your ZIP Code. Payment can be made via PayPal. Live in the Portland, Oregon area? We can do local pickup, within reason, preferably in North Tabor/Montavilla, where I’m based. No cash sales this time, you’ll still need to commit to the purchase via PayPal if you are local.

YWS Cafe (Rear Wheel) Lock: A very European city bike accessory, this simple lock mounts to the seatstays fore of the brakes. The lock prevents the rear wheel from moving, good for a quick run into the cafe (hence its common name.) Or, use it in conjunction with another lock for added security. Includes two keys but no mounting hardware. (I use zip ties to mount.) This is the style of lock that does not integrate with a chain or cable. (But you can put the loop of a cable through the shank.) SOLD

Rustines Constructeur rubber grips, white. A very nice French grip, sold by Velo Orange. Soft and comfortable. Designed for MTB bars (22.2) but since they are soft rubber, should be able to stretch to fit road (23.8) bars. New in box, never been used! $12

Kraton “Basket Weave” Grips. Another set of soft rubber grips sold by Velo Orange. Designed for MTB bars (22.2) but since they are soft rubber, should be able to stretch to fit road (23.8) bars. These ones have been used. $3
