    I'd question that assumption.

    Beyond a certain age, even the nicest bikes lacked braze-on bosses and guides. The lugwork here makes it look like this bike may be beyond 'a certain age'.

    I'd...

    The 7410 is a perfect fit in my books, I wouldn't change a thing. Looks great on the bike, and it's an iteration within the group, really - seems pretty appropriate matched with the various 740X...

    Apparently they decided to add a few gears around 1993, but from 1905 to 1989 - yes.

    Aha. Makes sense. I was thinking the decal w/owner's name + frame details fit with the frame itself being a Cyclops.

    If you want to try to suss out what tubing was used for the frame, well...you...

    Interesting. The fork is from a Mariposa, I think - isn't that their butterfly fork crown engraving? The 'other' Toronto builder.

    Could be a Mariposa repainted by Mike Mulholland and decaled as a...

    I seem to have brought together a collection of Suntour Sprint stuff - I love the pedals, and put them into use on several of my bikes, but also have a significant stash of NOS and lightly used drive...

    Bump.

    Still have the better part of good stack of these 9sp Campy rings left.

    A few nibbles, but only a couple of sales.

    Try $35 shipped per, US or Canada?

    Bump.

    Shipped out the last of the 48t silver rings; only one 47t silver ring left.

    41t silver ring, and 52t silver rings with chain guard and without remain.

    50t black ring remains.

    Hey, I'm sure everyone here has, at one point or another, installed something backwards, upside-down, inside out, in the wrong order, cross-threaded, or g*d knows what else.

    I don't think you understand what people are saying here. It does look like they're incorrectly installed to me, too.

    Took this out for a spin today, after doing some tweaks related to FD adjustment, bar/stem adjustment, etc.

    As I might have expected, it's a beast accelerating; this bike wants to go fast.

    Based on the info you posted about the unique construction of yours, it's hardly an 'ordinary' Cyclops!

    But you're right. Mulholland must have made a fair number in the 'Freuler' style, given that...

    Thanks. I'd considered a contrasting colour from the decal scheme (like yellow), but I think the violet works. Keep it colourful.
