    This might be obvious (or wrong) but I think swapping the axle and freehub will require a re-dish of the wheel. Just something to keep in mind. Also, you can run a 7 speed cassette on a 8/9/10...

    Beat me to it. Cuevas isn't a brand as much as a builder. I'm sure that is one fine bike. Francesco Cuevas

    +1. I've always been impressed with the AD frames I've encountered and this is the creme-de-la-creme for AD, AFAIK. And while I probably shouldn't say this, the components are nearly worth the...

    What vintage? I think the older ones had red labels, newer had green/gold labels. Hole count? 700c?

    I once fixed up an old Huffy for a stranger. She had an CL ad for 3 bikes and I showed up. I ended up trading her one good bike for the lot. About 50% of the 3 bikes ended up in the recycle bin...

    I'm pretty sure I have one. It has a plastic cover over the wheel and may be a Soubitez instead of a Cibie but it looks identical and came off a Peugeot mixte very similar to yours. I'll be out of...

    Don't forget that Shimano FD's have different pull ratios for the 'road' vs 'mountain' product lines. Not a problem unless you're using indexing and since this is C+V, that is probably no one ;)

    I saved 3 wheels from the scappers at my local co-op....MA2 laced to 6402 tri-color hub and a nice pair of Shimano XT center-lock wheels. I don't know much about the XT wheels but they look pretty...

    Are you looking to replace the original skewer? They are pricey....if you just want a 100mm skewer, they are a dime a dozen and can be found anywhere.

    I have a RD but it's mint and it just doesn't seem right putting it on a winter beater. Anyone out in CA or some other place where it never rains looking for a 7400 RD :)?

    I use basically the same setup and got these for all my kids. You can find the lights for about $10, the blocks (on ebay) for about $2. Then just get a charger ($5) and some good batteries...

    I found the 'special tool' on ebay since I have a few sets of these hubs but before that I was always able to manage without it. There shouldn't be much tension on the 4-slotted washers or else the...

    I've got some 'gen-u-wine' NukeProof hubs that have busted flanges. If you want them, let me know and I'll send them off. I figure they're too cool to toss but I don't know of any use for them.

    I'm switching my commuters over to sealed cartridge hubs. I have a bunch of them and they do seem to last a very long time with minimal or no maintenance. If/when the bearings go bad, it's easy to...

    What I'm riding? Usually my 64cm-ish Univega Grantursimo. It's my commuter and gets no love but just keeps on going.

    Glad it sold before I saw it !

    Just for future reference, it is quite easy to restore bad fork threads by brazing some brass onto the bad threads then re-tapping them. I've had this done and it...

    I think Suntour Symmetric mounts looked like that. I also seem to remember some odd-ball Shimano shifter mounting like that (AX?). If nothing else, it would complicate matters.
