    I got into it some more this weekend. I ordered a 5 speed uniglide NOS shimano hub off ebay. The ratios are pretty close to what I'm riding now, just one less gear between 14 and 28.

    It's not an ideal combination to go low front to low rear, but your derailleur should force the shift, it should work. Essentially your derailleur is not moving the chain far enough to the left, but...

    And for the freewheel, I'm less concerned with the number of cogs than the "right cogs". It's 42/52 up front and 14/28 in back. I can get anywhere with those ratios, but a 30 or 32 in back would mean...

    I just took another measurement, it is 123 to the outer edge of the locknuts and the axle length is just shy of 129. There is one spacer on the right which could be moved to the left. It is approx....

    I took the wheel apart and the hub is spaced at 120mm. My bike frame is 126. Would I need a Campagnolo replacement axle? Could I put a 7 speed freewheel on? I'm using non indexed shifters, so I'm...

    Thanks so much for all the great info. I will get a closer look at it tonight. But y'all would recommend rehabbing the old hub vs the new VO hub (presuming it will work)? Understood it's not a...

    Vintage Record Hub

    Hi,
    I need to replace the rear wheel on my old road bike, 126mm spacing. Not wanting to spread the frame, but willing to spend a little money, I decided to have a new wheel built. I ordered Mavic...

    Thanks, I tilted the bike in the stand to watch the chain as it entered the cog from the derailleur to see if it was catching on the neighboring cog, but the alignment was good. This derailleur...

    Skipping

    Hi,
    I'm working on an old 5 speed bike with an axle mounted rear derailleur. When the chain is in the small cog and you apply a fair amount of force to the pedals, it skips. I have tried two...

    I got the Shimano DH-3N80 from eBikeStop for $87. I can't tell a difference between when the light is off or on, but then I leave the lights on all the time :)
    It looks good too !

    Can a folder pull a Trail a Bike?

    I'm curious if a folding bike like the Novarra FlyBy or Tern Link Uno can handle an Adams Trail a Bike? I'm pretty sure it wouldn't break the bike, but I've never ridden a folding bike and am...

    Hi,
    I'm looking at an early model rockhopper, 84 or 85 according to the listing.
    I was curious about the rear spacing, if it would be 135, or smaller. I tried to find some specs but didn't find...
