    Another thing: I don't know what year the 720 is, but I recall 720s being equipped with A10s which did not have Delrin crown races. The B10, which came new on my 1984 610, did have a plastic crown...

    How did you get a bike with so many odd Campy parts (C record hubs and freewheels!) with no awareness that they would need servicing.

    How about the Shimano 600 and DuraAce headsets that used the wavy nut with a special pair of wavy wrenches? I don't know how they price now, but a few years ago the pair of tools was over $100 on...

    Mule Mama,

    Did you find any help?

    I've resolved fitting problems for myself and some friends. I'd be glad to talk to you about it, if you're still having problems. I live in Ann Arbor.

    height 1935 mm means 6 foot 4 inches tall.

    308 mm and 304 mm mean your right foot is longer than your left foot, and your feet are about 12 inches long.
