    ISO: Pipe-type seatpost, 26.0. Cosmetics not important. Aluminum preferred but steel would be okay, too.

    HAVE: Stuff, especially lots of utilitarian derailleurs, front and rear.

    What are you using for a crankset? My 610 came with a 118 BCD Sakae Custom crankset that wouldn't take anything smaller than a 36 ring, as I recall.

    436371

    I'm looking for a pair of Suntour bar-end shifters--the ratcheting ones, not the indexed version. Cosmetics need not be perfect, but I need them to work well mechanically.

    In return, I...

    In other words, who are you going to believe, your eyes or that lying decal and catalog? I'll take a look next time I have the bottom bracket apart. The bike will ride a lot better if I can confirm...

    Chas, do you think there's any significance to the distinction in the spec sheets between frames with "Reynolds double-butted tubing" and "Reynolds double-butted tubing throughout?" The former would...

    Another option might be to build up an inexpensive cross bike and give it away at the end of the trip. Make someone happy and save on the airline shipping fee. Although maybe there are legal barriers...

    Velocals flavors

    I'm planning to re-decal my recently repainted Miyata 1000, and from what I hear Velocals is the place to source what I need. They have the tubing decals and the correct 1981 version of the 1000...

    My friend Wally Smith and his wife have done a number of bike tours in Cuba, and say that it's a wonderful place. He wrote a guidebook about it:

    Oops--my typing skills are never at their best early in the morning. Thanks for spotting that, Jim--I went back and fixed it.

    You mean 122 BCD, right? That's the Model 93 standard. You can get 37-tooth reproduction rings from www.redclovercomponents.com.

    Full disclosure: I'm the owner of Red Clover Components.

    I think this one came off a touring bike of some kind--I found it in a box with a Sugino Apex triple crank and some other parts.

    Have: Suntour Superbe Tech rear derailleur. It seems in very good shape, but I think it has the same flaw that reportedly plagued the early Mountechs. I'll never use it. Possibly someone out there is...

    I should have looked at the picture more closely. Of course you're right, it's not the nutted version.

    Nice find! The date on that looks to me like 82--pretty close to mine, which is an 81. Although that's the nutted version, you'd think the shells and dust covers would be the same. The cover...

    No signs of stretching or damage, and except for the shape the other cap seems to be the same size and type. I don't think the bearing balls dragged against the cap, but the old grease was so...

    All other things being equal, all other things are equal. But in the real world, all other things are almost always different.

    That said, I would like to try a set of 42 mm tires someday.

    I missed the ride last year--really hoping to make it down for the 2015 version.

    It's above zero here this morning for the first time in quite a while. Supposed to drop down again tonight, though.
