    I believe I will take the path of least resistance, this one.

    Although, I would like to see the original set-up in action.

    Thanks all, mystery solved.-J

    The original FD was also a down pull type. The idea of the pulley is a good one, although it doesn't appear that that was the way the cable was originally run. Also, unless it's missing a seat clamp...

    Cable Routing Mystery

    Hello BF, it's been quite a while since I've posted since I gave-up my hobby of restoring old steel frames years ago. However, when my wife found this 92 Trek 930 MTB at the Goodwill, I thought it...

    I didn’t realize downtown LA was so rural. We got chickens and goats here. Busy Angelinos don’t have time to visit the countryside, so they’ve brought the country to the city apparently....

    Another day on the road; and I snapped this shot of a crisp morning sun-up cast across downtown LA.

    I’m a B-17 fan.

    ’79 Miyata Gran Touring that I foolishly sold with Brooks, and will never sell a bike with a good leather saddle again. It just doesn’t add the appropriate value.

    I like the build of your bike. I've never tried a spindle spacer, but as mentioned, it seems an economical fix. I recently converted an '83 bike to 9spd without any issues except slow upshifting up...

    That's one of the coolest things I've seen in a while. I've often wondered what it sounds like to pluck around on an acoustic bass. The sound must reverberate throughout the house.

    Those Dura Ace indexed barcons are great for just about any drivetrain. They recommend 7700 RD in indexed, but that XT RD is working well indexed.

    '83 Trek 500 9spd Mod.

    This is an ’83 Trek 500 that I tried my first modern conversion on, i.e. 700c rims and 9 spd drivetrain. Although I have ramped and pinned inner rings if needed, the 9 spd chain seems to shift just...

    The only C&V guitar is the Epiphone Caballero on the right. I bought it over 30 years ago as my first real guitar.
