    Perhaps overkill, but I frequently use a soldering iron and just melt some solder on the cable end.

    Hi W,

    Road levers are perfectly compatible with Roller-Cam brakes - they use the same pull ratios.

    The only thing to worry about is if the Roller-Cams are on the rear, underneath the chainstays...

    And I forgot the #1 use:

    - Pedals into crankarms! Especially steel pedal axles into aluminum crankarms - which is pretty much everything these days.

    I can think of a few places I use anti-seize, but just because I have a tub of it here:

    - Water-bottle cage bolts
    - Rack or Fender mount bolts
    - Threaded fork headset cups into the steerer tube...

    I know this is a zombie-back-from-the-dead thread, but I still use my Rhode Gear Large Seat Wedge bag on my MTB trips, and my wife uses their handlebar bag (complete with innovative V-shaped mounting...

    First, I wanted to tell you how awesome the whole project looks. It's quite inspirational, really.

    Regarding the bone-crushing stiffness, though, I can relate. These days I'm riding my only MTB...

    Another data point: I've been running grommet-less with presta tubes in shraeder rims for decades at pressures between 100-120 PSI. Never once had a problem involving the stem or the rubber around...

    Buy, these sunlite stems look great. I considered one for a MTB project recently for a friend - does it seem beefy enough for some off-road use?

    Well, if you want, you CAN look for the Ergon's in Short/Long, which is an available option. You will simply pay through the nose and have far fewer purchasing options. Or you can take matters into...

    Yeah, I use a paper clip to do the same thing. I thought I was a genius coming up with this, but I see there are photos on the Internet of folks doing the exact same thing:

    Well, my Dahon came with an 11-28 cassette, and I think the spread is just fine. I just bought a new-in-box replacement on Ebay for installation next month with the exact same spread.

    Me Again...

    ...or is pretty much any modern MTB FD with a 50mm chainline and a "cable-pulls from below" feature going to be fine, like a modern Deore (FD-M591)?

    Thanks,

  15. MTB Chainlines got wider since 1986. Need new FD to match modern crank. Suggestions?

    Hi Guys,

    So to lower my gearing (and since I couldn't remove the freewheel) on my 1986 KHS MTB, I installed a new crankset. The Shimano M391 triple I installed wants a 123 mm square taper spindle...

    So from the "OP Delivers" category of old threads, I just thought I'd mention that I finally got around to installing a new chain this weekend. I used a KMC X8.99 chain, and it index shifts...

    A followup:

    Well, at some point in the distant past, it looks like one of the four prongs on the freewheel was broken during a removal attempt. I assume I must be the guilty party (I'm the...

    THANK YOU for confirming that this combination works.

  21. 6SP Suntour Accushift lever w/ Shimano 7SP Freewheel+Derailleur;who's really done it?

    All,

    So Sheldon says that you can get remarkably good shifting with a 6-speed Suntour Accushift shift lever combined with a Shimano 7-speed freewheel (or cassette, I assume) and Shimano...
