    Thanks JDT, that's probably going to be the plan is no swap pans out.

    Looking to trade.
    I have a pair of Vittoria Randonneur Double shield 700 x 32c. Less than 500 miles on them.

    ISO:
    a nice set of touring 700 x 35-38c tires. Open to ideas and suggestions regarding type. But i will be using them for touring, rails to trails, no off road type needed.
    thanks. images of my vittorias below

    Would a L side ring work, or is it too thick?

    Probably too thick, plus a ring on this cartridge bracket would look a little odd. I think I'll just go with the modified English spacer solution. Already have those. And I received the UG spacers; maybe I'll get to try them out soon. Yesterday was spent on the beginnings of flood remediation. My sump pump failed during Sunday night's storm (:

Plus, BF folks have been been super generous with knowledge as I've learned CV stuff, so thought I'd start the search to find them a home here.

    FOR TRADE: either as a wheel set or as separates--
    Sturmey Archer FW 4 speed hub (40 spoke) '56 on hub
    & matching Bayliss Wiley front (32 spoke).

    These are 26x1 3/8 Dunlop rims.

    Both are in excellent condition, spokes, rims, etc... Rims show usual rust. I will post pics later, but on my way out for the night and wanted to get this posted before the weekend ended.

    ISO: I don't know since I'm sort of at a project status quo right now, so I'd consider pretty much anything of equal trade. PM with any ideas if interested. thanks!
    Mnmkpedals and Rhm (Rudi);
    There's a guy in the UK who specializes in vintage Sturmey Archer repairs and wheel building. His name is Vince Warner and he is absolutely encyclopedic about anything SA. While he is not inexpensive (shipping from the UK isn't cheap either), he probably has a four speed shifter that you are looking for.
    He recently had suitable, two part, four speed indicator spindles re-manufactured for FM's and FW's to exacting specification. If anyone can source a shifter for you, he can.
    His website is:

    http://colwoodwheelworks.co.uk/

    There is a "Contact" tab to send him a message.
    Happy Hunting!!

    Regards,
    Elcraft

    pretty darn good condition some scratches nothing major. Non original bars shifters and crankset. It is full shimano 600 though.


    I want to trade for another bike or frame from around 1985-92 with a similar value and rarity. Preferably cannondale but im open to all offers 56-58cm

    I'm betting it's 650c, with a longer head tube and making it look bigger than a 58

    Yup, check out that gap between the seat tube and rear wheel. On my PDG with 700c wheels, the rear wheel just about rubbed the seat tube.

    It is a 58cm frame, and brockd15, etc are correct; it's 650c. The OS Series 7 came in 650c with the amoeba-splash paint scheme (which is awesome in person) and in 700c in blue.

    The 650c's original crankset was 56/42, which, on paper, was supposed to be similar to 53/39 running 700c. In practice, it was close, until you fell off the pace; then you had to climb about 4 cogs to get back up to speed. Climbing was easy, and handling magnificent. Plus, with that chainring, once you got to pace, it was pretty easy to hold it.

    This is a 56cm version, RobbieTuned:

    Sorry to hear that. Most homeowner policies don't cover ground water/flood, but many DO cover damages due to sump pump failure, and most carriers broadly interpret this to mean "failure, overcome, inadequate, or just not working" because any doubt would go to the homeowner. These often have a lower limit, $5000 or $10000, but compared to $0, it's something.

    Going simply by the Schwinn catalog:
    1-weight
    2-aero
    3-climbing due to gear inches
    4-handling

    Going by my experience:
    1-weight is a wash: less wheel, more frame and chainring, sorta.
    2-aero? me? hah hah.
    3-climbing-yes. Drop the chain to the 42 and up to the 26, with those 650c wheels, you can climb. As offered by OP, very good climber (39t front).
    4-handling-yes. Amazingly nimble and precise. As I have 2 650c tri-bikes and 1 700/650c TT bike, they turn on a dime.
    5-Great tires are harder to come by, but they're out there, rarely on sale.
    6-Great rims (C&V) are harder to come by, but they're generally cheaper, especially Mavic Ksyriums.

    I'd love to have mine back.
    It was 9-sp 105 and Tange OS (the fork, per the Tange rep at NAHBS, was Tange Prestige)
    It gave up nothing to my '87 Waterford-built Paramount with SLX and 9-sp DA.

    If you want a very unique paint job, a nice Tange OS frame, and the potential to have a great-handling climber, the OP's bike is the one. With "normal" 53/39 chainrings and 650c, you can toss on a 12-28 rear and climb all day. You'll do your share of spinning, though, with a 650c wheel and 53t front ring. It still works for lots of triathletes, though.

    Yeah, thanks, Robbie. Makes sense, and it's enough info for me to decide not to bother with such expense for that type of advantage. I might, however, end up with a high performance bike with 20" wheels. One day.

    That bike is high on my list, and it's the right size. I have a 92 Paramount to trade, but alas, it is in México and is a 62cm. Will continue to dream.

    No, but a LOT of Mavic wheels used the same freehub carrier design. If you find one with a Shimano 8/9/10 rear, you can either buy the Wheels Mfg spacers for $60 and use 8-sp Shimano cogs, or try to just find a Campy 8-sp freehub and swap it in. I've done this several times, and have a spare Shimano 8/9/10 freehub if you get to that point.

    Never give up.
