    IIRC, the Caliente was spec'ed with a Shimano "Front Freewheel" and Positron derailleurs, which use solid (non-wound/braided) cables, so check to see what you have before going in too deep.

    If you drill holes in the cup for a pin spanner, tap them so you can thread bolts through the spanner (instead of the pins) right into the cup to hold the spanner on the cup.
