I'm working on this mixte for a co-worker. Was his Mom's bike.
I'm having a problem finding skewers to fit the 120mm rear spacing. Looked in the usual places and they either don't specify spacing or just have 126, 130, 135 etc.. These don't have to be original or anything. Just silver and useable. "Normandy" hub.
Also looks like the Simplex rear derailer is shot. Broken pulley. Stiff.
Any reason why this won't work on this 5 speed bike: http://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?c...eid=&pagename=
It's a Shimano TY-15 GS. Looks like the same mount arrangement. Maybe something else? Suggestions?
