Suntour accushift downtube shifters with Suntour 3000 derailleur, what freewheel?
A friend of mine has a Raleigh Technium and needed a rear wheel. We got one all fixed up for him and he found a nice freewheel. Once we put it on and I started helping him getting it adjusted, it would not shift right. it would either shift well at the top or at the bottom of the range depending on how I adjusted it.
I realized that it was the accushift causing the issue. The freewheel he grabbed out of the bin was what I would consider a ultra spaced suntour. You know, the 6 speed freewheels with the 7 speed spacing (5mm) so that it will fit in place of a standard 5 speed freewheel. Will I need to source a standard 6 speed freewheel?
