Shimano Light Action/Uniglide questions.
I considered trying these questions in the Bicycle Mechanics forum but they seem more pertinent here due to the age of the components. (and I always have good luck here) I have an 87 Centurion LeMans RS with Shimano Light Action shifters and derailers. What is the max cog the rear derailer can handle? The rear wheel is stock with original Shimano 6 speed freewheel.
On ebay I found: "Shimano 600 Ultegra 30t Cassette Cog New Old Stock" Item number: 7235488046.
The cog looks llike it's uniglide both in the teeth and the splines, but it says "cassette". What would the thickness of this cog be? Will it fit my stock Shimano 6 speed freewheel body or is it for a cassette?
