Way too highbrow for me!

Trigger Shifters are all front
There's a pair of 7x3 twist shifters
There is one old stx rear derailleur but the rest is front

Black calipers are cheapies. Pork(?) I think. The Silver's are bb5

You mean the MTB mechanical levers?

Is that a speedo that actually works in the pile of retro parts. I am serious though, I wouldn't mind it

That's a Shimano flight deck computer. I have nfi what it's meant to do or if it works comes with zero mounts or cables, Shimano had a strange way of doing things

Hmm, I'm not really handy enough to sort the mounts or wiring, shall leave it for the handy person

had a look into the flight deck, youd have to be a semi-retro roadie type to want one of these. i feel like i'm going to struggle to give it away!

@Scotty T recently gave me a pile of bike computers to give to the LDTR kids group when we're back up and running, and going through them has prompted me to go through my collection. i've got a couple here i can give you, a wirely knog and a wired cheapo. both were working when i removed them but both dont have the wheel magnet. yours if you want?

And disturbingly, those gearless drop bar brakes are of interest. I know not why?
I just had a read in the gravel bike thread, you're thinking of doing some mongrel hybrid build aren't you?

I've got a set of drop bars too, hoarded them to use on the kids cx bike but they outgrew that before I got around to upgrading it.

Thanks, but I reckon gears would be in order for that build, if it happens. Riding a SS CX monster cross would require a large beard that I can’t justify !

That the old blue Knog wireless I gave you @Plankosaurus? That goes waaaay back, I think it cost me $50 about 15 years ago...
Anyway, I think I have a spare spokey magnet thing for the ol' bike computers if @safreek needs one?

pls trek isn’t close to hipster, and the dbike’s got lots o gears, and those shoes...his cap and beard game is strong though
Any company that calls a bike ‘Stache’ and ‘full stache’ in the middle of a hipster pandemic, knows who their target audience is.
