    Clever. :thumb:

    ..and thanks. Dad was a Schwinn regional factory sales manager in the southeast U.S. for thirty years, so I'm definitely a schWinner.

    Probably a good assumption, but I wonder what caused that bottom one to pull out. I guess it could have been improperly installed.

    The tensile strength of an aluminum rivnut installation is about half that of a steel one and even less for that of a stainless steel one (all the same diameter).

    JB-Weld has a tensile strength of 3,960 PSI (27.3 MPa) when cured. A water bottle cage boss secured with it is not likely to fail under normal use.

    Marine-Tex Epoxy Putty is similar and has a...

    If the boss is missing and there's a hole, I'd do it right and braze a boss in the hole. You'll want to choose one that comes as close as possible to the appearance of the existing bosses on the...

    Thanks. I've been assuming he's using the original Campy NR triple crank since he only said it didn't come with a BB without mentioning the crank, and he didn't respond to brian3069 when he asked...

    I should just give up at this point, but I'll try once more. The stock spindle for the P15-9 should be 117mm; 122.5mm is about 5.5mm too wide. This assumes, of course, that with six cogs the...

    It is worth mentioning that HTA and STA in the catalog specification tables are usually for a given frame size (in the case of the '87 Tempo, the 73 HTA and 74 STA are for a 23" frame), and may...

    Adrian, since no one has responded I'll take a shot. The three 12v Li-ion batteries in series will give you the 36 volts you need, so that sounds like a good plan.

    $1500 for a bike with a hi-ten frame?

    I think the seller is dreaming or wishing for a naive buyer.

    IMHO, Schwinn made some great bikes in the late eighties at the Greenville plant. The late eighties Circuit, Tempo, Premis, and Prelude are all very worthy and are often underrated in the marketplace.

    OP is a newbie and double posted. The other post has a driveside frame photo, but not enough detail to tell anything. It looks like a repaint with new style decals, and may not be a Cinelli.
