    Podagrower, There are many ways to accomplish what you want, some fairly expensive. Switching to the 12-30T cassette is a good suggestion because you'll gain ~7% fewer gear inches in bottom and...

    GravelMN, I have anti-seize, red and blue Loctite and grease to use on different bicycle and non bicycle projects. A light smear of grease on chain ring bolts is all I've felt was needed.

    jargo432, Is a 26" wheel set is all that's on the build sheet currently? Experiment with a set on the DT. The major difference is that the head tube angle is slightly steeper on the 700C frame.

    My experience with Velomine is quite favorable, I'd try the wheel set in Jarrett2's post. I would use a 32 or a 35 mm tire.

    The paint scheme wouldn't have come from Cannondale. Just a previous owner's preference. www.vintagecannondale.com can help with decals.

    Chris, First, congrats on the weight loss. :)

    Reads like you now have a bike that'll work pretty well for you in most conditions. Good luck with the new saddle.

    The non Dyna-Sys mountain bike Shimano RDs will work with Shimano road group indexing, except 8S D-A. The Shimano mountain bike FDs do have a different pull ratio than the Shimano road group's FDs. ...

    Trinidor, PM user Ronno6. He's quite familiar with the largest of the Cannondale touring frames.

    If the seat post in the photo is where it fits you then the frame is too large for you, IMO.

    Absolutely. The carbine uses the same ammo as the rifle so there's more powder than needed for the shorter barrel. :eek:

    djb, 8-10S use the same width free hub whereas the 7S free hub is just a little narrower.

    Sometimes it comes down to drop out width, RD placement or the RD itself. When I converted my touring...

    Because it's a carbine rather than a rifle, the No.5 has a flash suppressor rather than a spark suppressor. It's quite an impressive lick of flame when seen at dusk and could possibly set dried...

    saddlesores, While some may poo-poo the idea of using a suspension fork, I think it's a good move by Giant. Any idea if it's able to be locked out?

    I'm not sure what you mean by "spun out", but I can't run as high a cadence with my 175 mm crank arm bikes as I can with those equipped with 170 mm crank arms. The difference is slight, but present....

    Only if there is a preexisting problem. I use a 130 mm hub in both an '86 and an '89 Cannondale SR frame. It's actually an easier slip-in affair on the '86 in spite of it having a chain stay...

    Call velomine to determine whether the rims are disk brake only. They're a good company to work with in my experience. They build a good wheel, but may need some final tensioning.

    Gebo, From what I've read, I don't think you're going to be satisfied unless you change gearing at both ends. I suggest a 50-34T compact double with a 13-26 8S cassette. You may need a new, longer...
