    Many of the people over in the C&V forum like to work on their bikes as well as ride them. Most of the bikes featured on the C&V forum were restored, built, reconditioned, repainted, modified, etc....

    I love it! I am a sucker for chrome mountain bikes. I've got a 1987'ish chrome Mt. Hood with front and rear roller cams and love that bike. If yours is anything like mine, it'll make an awesome...

    It may be the work of a photo retoucher. If you look, the struts don't really connect to the dropout. Nashbar is the worst at that, all of their bike pictures are messed up. Still, somebody should...

    dddd: that looks like a fun bike. I have a 21cm square Univega Activa hybrid that I built as a drop bar bike a while back. I had 38mm on the back and 40mm on the front. I still have the frameset. I...

    Yeah, I hadn't thought about it that way. I always liked Jamis, they've been doing it this way forever and not to fill a niche.

    Yeah, that's pretty much what I'm talking about. I'm thinking more along the lines of a geared bike and something in the spirit of the drop bar conversion thread. I googled 29er drop bar conversions...

    Nice bike indeed. I recommended it to a neighbor who ended up buying one. He's happy with it. His is a few years old and has canti's instead of disks. It has a classic look that I can appreciate.

    Has anyone made a drop bar conversion out of a modern 29er with a high head tube? I think that would be a cool project if a donor could be found on the cheap.

    That Fargo is perfect to my eye, I like it. The VO bike has a bigger stack and still has a ton of saddle to bar drop.

    I'm in agreement with the higher head tube camp. Riding an unsuspended dirt drop bike in the woods is punishing on the wrists. Add a copious amount of saddle to bar drop, and you are in for some...

    Is that the bike that was for sale in Holyoke, MA a few weeks ago? If it was (or wasn't) good for you, nice bike.

    If it's a 144 BCD crank, you could get a triplizer. It's a special middle chainring that will allow you to add a 3rd, small ring. You may need a long cage rear derailleur and longer spindle. The...

    Leica lad was trying to fit 6 cogs on a 5 speed UG freehub body with 7 speed spacers, but it was too wide and hanging off. I thought that maybe a lockring instead of the threaded cog would be more...

    Does the bike shift into the large cog? I'm wondering if the limit screw is stopping the derailleur before it fully goes into the large cog. A really slack cable could cause it to shift half way into...

    Not much more to add other than a description of the shifting problem might help to narrow down the cause. Sounds like you have a 1983 by the steel wheels. I would change the wheels and steel...

    Fair enough. I seriously love tinkering with bikes and would welcome any of your ideas with positivity, if positivity is a real word.

    I'm just confused how you manage to attach the springs when everything I've seen shows either a brazed spring hole or a plate with a hole that slides onto the boss. Are those other people wrong too?...

    The issue is the springs. On a U or roller cam, the spring is in the brake and there is no hole in the boss to attach the spring. The boss will accept either roller cams or u brakes.

    I agree with the good price camp. That could easily sell for $200 near me. If that falls through, Fuji made some low trail 650b candidates. The catalogs are online and the 1984 on shows geometry. I...
