Less issue of shudder is also a reason for linear brake on front so I'm told.

Is this classic CX geo with very little BB drop? How does it feel compared to your road bikes?

Man, that's a great color scheme, PCB. Also one of the best looking Columbines I've seen; often the lugs are a little over the top for me. No Columbine hanger on that one?

Pro tip: he keeps smoked brisket wrapped in foil in his back jersey pocket and a water bottle filled with Cote du Rhone. The guy is class all the way.

No, it doesn't prove your point. Which is, I gather, that GCN is biased against steel as a material for bicycle frames. The "point" of the second video I referenced was not about steel, carbon or any...

This is about right, but there are a few builders who make/sell custom frames with all the braze-ons and what not for $1800-2200. Not to take away from your projects, which are super fun and I'm sure...

I've encountered that early freehub, but didn't remember it being on the 11.8. I suppose that makes sense considering I replaced whatever wheelset it came to me with in short order.

You (with Schwinn's help) are confusing/misusing the terms cassette, freewheel and freehub. That said, yes, it's likely that your 6 speed freewheel is original.

That's kinda relative, right? Doesn't pretty much every Raleigh of the 70s have a ~57cm top tube regardless of whether it's a 20.5" or 25.5" frame?

The taller the head tube the easier the cable bends. I've done Ergos with cantilevers and centerpulls on 25" frames without crossing cables (not that I object to it). I've since really reduced the...

Better question for a framebuilder. It would certainly make the building of the bike more complicated than a stay for each side of the wheel.

Raleigh is as Raleigh does. I think most people call it "fastback" if the stays simply join the seat tube at the back instead of the sides. That's pretty loose, but fine by me.
