Been in search of some Shimano Hyperglide parts...
Have had little luck with the LBaS's , so I thought I'd give you fellows a shot at this:
In rather urgent need of:
*12t Shimano Hyperglide cog for 8-speed cassette (3mm spacing), second from outer cog (the one with the 3mm spacer built in, and a small depression for the 11t compact cog to fit in).
*Two 7-speed cassette spacers
(P.S.: Anyone here remember the Gary Fisher/Peugeot shifting nightmares, and the SR/Suntour cassette that solved the problem? Turns out the secret is a pair of 7-speed spacers placed next to the two largest cogs in the cassette.)
While we're on the subject, I could also use these other non-vintage parts for my POS '99 Gary Fisher Tassajara beater (same bike I need the 12t cog and spacers for):
*Shimano MTB crankset or one-piece triple chainrings (4-bolt), the small-diameter "IG Chain Only" type. Could use the left-hand crankarm too - someone stripped the pedal threads on the original, and my replacement clears the frame by less then 2mm - enough that it scrapes the frame slightly while under load.
*Extremely tall 27.2 seatpost - 410mm minimum, a 460mm would be fantastic.
*Aluminum North Road-bend handlebars - will also consider silver-painted steel.
