    Two potential log jams here- Crown race size and stack height. Campy headsets are on the taller end of the spectrum.

    Do you have brakes? I've found an often overlooked source of a clicking while pedaling can be a cable end that your leg twangs as you pedal.

    Other than that, pedals, look for stiff links… Does...

    Seriously?

    ...

    It didn't occur to you that maybe .03mm might be within the error bars of a strip of paper and an xacto knife? That's quite literally the width of a human hair.

    No.

    Do you have wheels with a 11s freehub body? Some older freehub bodies work with 11s (mavic, I'm looking at you), while most of the others don't. If you don't have an 11s rear wheel, you'll...

    Don't shift. BOOM! single speed.

    Real answer: either pick up a chain tensioner or set the RD with the limits or a spoke or something to hold it so it can work as a chain tensioner.

    Wouldn't have been uBrakes. Does the frameset (swingarm and vector fork) have cable stops for cantis? If so, there's your answer.

    The 756 wasn't a very high end build (LX components IIRC), so...

    Most beer cans have about a .1mm wall, to effectively shim out from 25.4 (1") to 28.6mm (1.125") you're going to need a lot of beer cans.

    Just buy the right fork. It's not like a BMC is an...

    Those are for the 9000/6800 series FDs to have something to brace against. There's a grub screw in the FD that tightens against the frame to secure and stabilize the derailleur. On a carbon frame...

    You can buy longer [recessed] mounting nuts. Your LBS probably has what you're looking for on hand.

    Very cool bike, been keeping an eye out for a Zunow for a while now. Mine would be a whole lot more dayglow than this, but the subdued look works just as well.

    The light action MIGHT work, but probably not ideally. One of the things about the light action era of indexed RDs is that the cable anchoring nut is on a sprung arm.

    I'm not up for speculating...

    Back when BMX bikes were still using threaded headsets, there were 'locking' headset locknuts with grub screws to keep the locknut from working loose. No idea if the 24tpi threading of those jibes...

    You don't have to tend a thread you've started, they run their course just fine without the OP bumping them back up.

    What are the wheels? If a freehand body is readily available, that's your best bet. If you have plans to keep this bike a while and ride it enough to wear out the next cassette, a conversion...
