I was watching your build over at Paceline. Looks like a blast! Haven't spent too much time on these forums nowadays, but gotta tie up loose threads like this. The A23s are the beez kneez. Not as...

I did work on one side first and then went to the other. I guess I wasn't too cautious about it since it was a junker frame anyways. Kind of like a trial for coldsetting another nice frame that I...

+1 on tension. Your tension needs to be slightly higher as the cogs are designed to throw the chain one way or the other to facilitate shifting. On flat ramps, the chain will stay on much easier.

If you want to get a bit more aero, how bout the A23s in silver? I built up a set around some campy hubs and love them. Probably too modern though, huh?

Here they are in 650B, but they sell in...

So I have this old unknown HiTen frame. It was 126 and I wanted to coldset it to 135 because I have some XT/Open Pro wheels lying around. Thought this could make a nice beater for my brother. Was...

Nice looking ride. I think a silver rival crank or an alloy UT campy crank would bring this all together.

The pin stripe on the lugs really makes this pop. How come the fork wasn't done? I assume the striping was your doing. I think leather wrap to match the saddle would really bring this together, but...

Ah I forgot, you won't be back in WA for a while right? Yeah, there is quite a bit of climbing to get there, which isn't helped by the Italian manly-man gearing. The morning commute has been frigid....
