    Then pull out the ball bearing; it takes about ten minutes and you have real friction. I also have a pair that I'm siting on, just waiting for the right bike.

    Actually, I have three that I'm sitting on, one matched pair, and one extra. I don't know what I'm going to do with that extra.

    FWIW I threw a brand new Acera long cage derailleur on an old Suntour 6 speed indexed mountain bike. It worked like it was made for it?,,,,BD

    I don't remember the group, but it was a mid to late eighties Schwinn Woodlands, or Sierra. It was electric blue with geometric shapes all over, IIRC. All the parts were stock Suntour stuff. I don't know the brand of chain.,,,,BD

    This bike is quickly becoming my do-everything, around-town, SUV bike. 1985 Schwinn Cimarron:



    Double-butted cromoly lugged frame with fillet-brazed headtube joints. Low-rider mounts on the fork in case I really want to deck it out.

    I'm loving these Schwalbe Marathon 26x2.0 tires. Small contact patch, so they're really surprisingly fast for their size, but I still feel like I can roll over pretty much anything.

    I've got 6 speed commands running on an XC Pro RD and a 6 speed Shimano freewheel- it functions fine.

    It seems the short guys always get the best options. Do I see a pulley on the seat tube? that should lend itself to a road setup.

    Indeed. It's so you can run a bottom pull dérailleur while keeping the cables tidy up top.

    I'd also like to know what your thinking is on keeping vs. changing the bios. Seems like their dork factor is pretty high, but that can either be a plus or minus depending on ones perspective.

    I like that High Sierra on CL in JP -- I've emailed them.

    I don't have any experience with MTBs, for this sort of application would a 19'' CTC seat tube be too big for someone who rides a 53-54cm road bike?

    I think so. I ride 56cm CTC ST's for road and 17-19" CTC ST MTB's.

    Rats. I'm a sucker for chromed bikes. It's pretty cheap so I may pick it up anyways.

    You might give it a try. at 6'2, I should ride a 60 or so if memory serves, but I have a 22" that I've done this to and find it to be a bit too small.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    ^^^That's cool. What bars are those? And do you have any other pics of your shifter setup? I was thinking about doing something like that. How do you like it?

    Yeah, that's really cool. How do the hoods feel on those dirt drops? Do you have to turn your wrists a certain way or does it feel natural?
