    Fixing Up Fuji Del Ray - Weird things / need suggestions

    Finally greased the bike up after cleaning it up and went for a 30 minute ride today. Overall it wasn't bad. It felt a lot 'slower' than my new bike, but I'd guess that may have to do with having 1-1/8" tires instead of the 23mm ones I have.


    First off, wheres the cheapest place to get cables? The cables are rusted a bit. Nashbar seems pricey.

    The FD doesn't seem to want to stay on the large chainring. Its a friction shifter setup and the left shifter, when pulled back seems to creep its way back down after a minute or so

    I tried to adjust the brakes---the rear caliper won't keep centered. I straighten it, tighten it and when I pull the cable, it closes and then its off-center again, rubbing against the right side.

    The break hoods are extremely uncomfortable to ride on. Is there a place to get better ones?

    if you just want the wire inner cable+ just get soem EJAC brand from you local bike shop.

    as for the brakes, first of al your quickrelease is in the open position. then ensure the nut that holds them to the frame is secure. then you need a 13 or 14 mm cone (or break wrench) to center them usinf the flat spots on the center bolt.

    as for the front shifter did you try and tighten the screw on the sid ea bit? otherwise just disassemble it wipe it off with a clean rag and reinstall and tighten
