    From the photo, that bike is probably a 1994 model with an upgraded (1996-97) XT rear derailleur. Definitely not '89-90.

    If you know the problem is with the shifters, I would suggest trying to...

    It's pretty obviously 26", just based on its age +/- a decade.

    You said this is for a cargo bike? That seems like a really good application for something cheap, reliable, and tried-and true, and where tiny weight savings don't matter. You know, like... stainless...

    You might have more luck on the Classic and Vintage forum, or a place like mtbr's Vintage, Retro, Classic forum.

    FWIW, I can't ID your frame, but would point out that while Ritchey (both the guy,...

    Thanks. Looks like I can get an Avid BB7 caliper on eBay for a bit under $40. I'm guessing the cables, rotor, and brake lever should be fine as is. Might be worth upgrading the front brake anyway.

    Bending steel forks back into alignment is definitely a thing, and a good bike shop should be able to do it.

    I had the fork on my '93 Stumpjumper bent slightly during a move, and I was able to get...

    Or to be a non-smartass, one could Google "Voodoo Bizango" and see that it's a 29" Hardtail mountain bike.

    Tough to mount full fenders on these though.
  9. Storage solution for hitch-mount rear carrier (Yakima HoldUp)?

    I just installed a trailer hitch on my car and bought a Yakima HoldUp (HoldUp 1-1/4" | Yakima). The carrier is pretty good while on the car, but off the car it's super unweildy. It's very heavy, and...

    Yep, I was thinking about this. A piece of leather or sheet rubber inserted between the cables and frame would probably do a decent job of protecting the bike. The top tube hook is really just to...

    So would the clamping arm on the front wheel work OK if you tried clamping to a spot on the wheel that was 6-8" further forward?

    The top tube clamping carriers do avoid the fenders, but most of our bikes have top tube routed cables, making that a bit iffy. Clamping the wheels seems to make the most sense overall... which I why...

    I'm looking into mounting a trailer hitch to my car (2007 Honda Fit) for the purpose of using a hitch mounted bike carrier. I'm looking at the type that supports the bikes by the wheels, as this...

    I'm pretty certain the assembly is correct, especially as I simply loosened the bolt enough to pull the old pad out and slide the post of the new one in.

  17. Suntour XC Canti brakes - can't get new pads tight enough!

    I have a new old bike, with circa 1990 Suntour XC canti brakes. They're conventional cantis on the front, 'self energizing' on the back, but the pad mounting mechanism is the same front and back....

    Our just-purchased 1990-ish Burley Bossa Nova has a 6 speed Suntour XC Pro drivetrain, with a non-Suntour (Specialized?) solid axle rear hub and a 6 speed freewheel.
