    This ^^ is good advice, and touches on an issue that recently came up on the CR list iir.

    The adjustable cup loosing isn't caused by the threading's direction, since the cup likely isn't unwinding...

    I wasn't able to figure out why one would want to use a lockring instead of the normal 1st-position threaded cog to hold the cassette on.
    Surely this would reduce the cog count potential,...

    With these bike's original bb spindles being prone to breaking at the circlip grooves, there are rather few inexpensive options for locating a replacement spindle. The cartridge bearings can be had...

    Seems to me that you perhaps meant that the Italian cups are thicker, to come down to the dimension of the spindle raceway spacing(?).

    I agree.

    Only exception is when we're talking friction shifting, where I try to stay ahead of the gear count with the chain width, i.e. I always try to use 9sp chain when the cog spacing is 8 or...

    Any kind of anti-friction sleeve for running the cables under the bb shell will have to be securely retained, lest they slip out of place along the cable and thus mess up your cable tension...

    You need an Italian-threaded, 70mm bb for starters.

    Beyond that, you need to choose the spindle dimensions, likely something like ISO 123mm length with some degree of offset toward the drive side....

    It's nice to know that someone still makes good-looking hubs these days.

    I've long wondered if somehow, someone could make a near-exact copy of a Nuovo Record large-flange rear hubshell that could...

    I think you meant "aesthetic" when you wrote "atheistic".

    Why not step up to 7-speed shifters while you're at it?

    I would make the choice of ratios the top priority. Sunrace has 7sp 13-25t...

    Any narrowing the flange spacing comes at the cost of a more laterally-flexible wheel, though does also better maintain NDS spoke tensions so as to prevent loosening.

    Note that the spoke bracing...

    I agree.

    On the one hand, I'm able to happily complete most of our hilly rides here using only the big ring while friction-shifting through all seven of the cogs on my 13-30t freewheel.

    And on...

    I have a Nishiki Seral tourer from that same year, even has the AT triple cranks on it and with panto'd big ring.

    The 720 offers a very comfortable ride, if too flexible for some pedaling efforts. It's truly the Cadillac of "road" bikes, even though it's really a...
