For one year, Shimano STX was made in a 95 bcd size. That year was 1994. That happens to be the year of my bike.
I found a spec sheet (in german or something) that shows the 95 bcd.
For my purposes, I want a higher tooth big ring, probably at least 50, so I'll just find a compact double when I get ready to mess with it. Sounds cheaper and easier. Maybe this info will help someone else.

I've been reading through this thread, for a while, and I'm only about halfway through. I built my first drop-bar mountain bike back in 1994, and I've ridden dropped off and on, since. Right now, I don't ride anything with straight bars. Every bike in my stable has mustache bars, flipped Albatross bars, or something similar.
Last night, however, I built up a 1992 Trek 950, with a Midge on it, for an upcoming vintage bike assault on Webster's Pass.

Where are the Bikeaholic meetings? . . . . . I need help!? I just don't think I can do this alone.
Behold the humble bicycle . . .the oldest form of mechanical transport for the individual person.
It will be the last too.
Re-Cycle that Bicycle. Fix it, Ride it, Give it away.
I made a bit progress on my ritchey outback this weekend.
I'm still waiting on a front derailluer and will have to get cables, bar tape, and a chain next time I'm at my lbs but I should be riding this soon.

Thanks to all for the continued inspiration in here.
Thanks for the kind words, Squeeze.
I always prefer the non-aero levers, with bar end shifters, for some reason. Maybe it's because you can see the shifter cables, so I want to see the brake cables, too, to balance things out...
