    It's also possible to use HG cassette cogs on a UG freehub by widening the one narrow notch in the HG cog with a file or Dremel tool. Works great, but you'd still have 7 speeds.

    If you really...

    just ordered some of the Stay Brite mentioned above, looks like it would be easier to use on stainless cables. I normally use crimp ends on all cables, but on my travel bike I need to have a plain...

    Yes, I agree. Actually do quite a lot of soldering (note use of professional Hako unit in post) but this was the first time I've ever successfully soldered up the end of a stainless brake cable. ...

    Today, I was able to solder a stainless brake cable on my travel bike. Carefully cleaned it with lighter fluid, then dipped in flux and used regular old solder. Was using my high powered HaKo iron,...

    You know the truth, the real truth: chicks dig Cannondales.

    +10 on the Tektro's. I prefer the 200 series with the straight lever over the later ones with the 'ergo' shaped levers. Also sold under Origin8 and Cane Creek brand names, but the Canes have a...

    Have owned multiple examples of both, and the rides are very similar. Top tube on the Ironman is generally longer than the RB1.

    Nod for components on the late 80's models generally go to the...

    Yes, with 8 speed the Sugino rings should work fine, just remembered that Mrs. Doc has one of those on her Trek 720 running 7 speed and it works just fine with an 8 speed chain.

    I've used a 110 BB...

    Best of luck on your de-acquisition efforts.
