    A new (old) triple crankset designed for a shorter spindle can still give you a decent chain line. I think that's the way to go. Chain line is much more important on FG/SS bikes, right? A...

    Because cassettes can go down to 11 teeth, a smaller set of chain rings up front can cover most of the gearing ground needed by recreational/sport cyclists. Smaller = lighter and also winds up...

    Long reach dual pivot front brake is also an option. I have a Trek 620 that has serious brake judder on the front. I'm running 27"s but am ready to just switch it out and get reliable strong modern...

    I have a biopace triple like that on my Trek 620 -- which I had once built up as a SSCX and raced! It was NOT a fast bike, and I was NOT a fast CX'er!

    I'm building up a Burley road tandem and trying to do it on the cheap. I have some old but not worn first generation biopace chainrings, 52/42, and have a...

    "Hopelessly" meaning it looks like hell but was made "rideable." The cranks feel crunchier than I'd like them to after cleaning and re-greasing, but we just did a thirty mile ride (my friend's first...

    It's a nicely put together frame. Simplex forged dropouts, attractively finished seat stays at the seat cluster, very nice modern fork crown. I like late 1980's bikes quite a bit. We'll have to...

    Looks like you could mount a smaller set of rings on that crankset. 50/38? That and some big cogs in the back could get you doing lightweight touring pretty easily. A new triple may require a...

    The rack stayed, the aerobars and 105 pedals went. I did not spend much time getting the oxidation off the crankset. The grease that ran down the fork from the headset is kind of baked in.

    I recently ran a 9 speed chain with a 10 speed crankset and an 8 speed rear cluster. Shifted beautifully.

    Correct. I saw the 5703 on the nds arm. Looking at the photo, I see that it has numbers for the double, triple, and I guess compact 5750?

    The spacers were there to clear the chain stays. I...

    Yes. Gives about 1.5 mm clearance between end of crank arm and chain stay. The bike is spaced for 135 mm hub. I tried without spacer. No go.
