    I was thinking maybe a bushing of some sort was missing. So I meant there is nothing wrong with the derailleur. I guess I adjust it for function, then tighten it. Or use the 7.

    What's a good 1980 or so front derailleur that can handle a triple with 20t spread? Or is this one worth figuring out the shifter setup?

    NOS Brake Pads

    Found some old (25 years or so), but new in the package Dia-Compe red brake pads. Are these OK to use, or do they brake down even though they are unused? Or how can I tell?

    Thanks for the help! ...

    Don't know how heavy you are, but how do you think this would do for a clyde, 250lbs or so? Sounds like it might be to soft and a Brooks would be better?
