    Hard to tell from the pics, but it appears to be a mid-level touring model. I'm guessing Tange #5 tubing, which would be chromoly, unbutted. And perhaps hi-ten fork and stays. Most Shoguns from...

    San Diego C&Vers

    Calling all San Diego C&Vers!

    Anyone want to meet up for some riding? I'll be in SD for the first two weeks of May with lots of time to burn. By "lots of time" I mean after work and on weekends,...

    I haven't had a lot of issues with flickr, and I've been using it heavily for four years now. Like most people I get annoyed whenever they deploy a major interface upgrade after I've mastered the...

    You and I seem to be in the minority, GB. I do this too, it's simply more convenient and keeps the bike and stand in a more stable configuration. I always use a soft rag between the jaws and the...

    I have the same stand, but branded as a Nashbar. I got it new on clearance for about $60. It was my first stand, and it serves its purpose and I couldn't imagine wrenching without this style of...

    That's clever! Hook one end up to your home water supply, and a spigot on the other end-- voila! Bike wash station.

    Wow, your wife must have pulled some strings to get you a new Acorn bag, as those are pretty much unobtainium. :thumb: You are a lucky man.

    Are those cassettes in the background? I also see a...

    Nice! You're going to love it. I couldn't dream of working on cottered cranks without it. Way better than a sledge hammer :eek:.

    Santa was good to me. She gave me a 6" bench grinder, new drill bits, a belt made from an old bicycle tire (a Vittoria), Novara cycling gloves... but the biggie was a Garmin 310XT GPS watch, which I...

    Holiday greetings!

    I haven't been posting much lately, with way too many home improvement projects taking up my spare time (putting in a basement 1/2 bath, among other projects), but I thought I should at least...

    Great bike! As others above have mentioned, if I were to build up a single speed/fixed, this is largely how I would imagine it!

    As for a suitable substitute for the Bluemels flap, one thing that...

    Okay, this changes things. So you want to mount retrofrictions for braze-ons onto a non-Simplex brand of shifter band clamp. That should work, provided that the bosses on the band clamp have the...

    Retrofriction shifters from the band-clamp version can be removed and reinstalled on braze-on shifter bosses, but retrofriction shifters made for braze-on mounts can not be fitted onto a Simplex band...

    Tange makes the G-Master roller bearing unit with alloy cups, but that's clearly not the one you have. Did Campy ever make a roller bearing unit?

    The inner dogs did get chewed/rounded a little from slipping... but I think there's plenty left. The driver is unmarred (hardened steel?).

    The chain, chainring and cog are 3/32 on this setup.





    This cog is actually a Suntour, but fits the three splined driver perfectly. With two spacers and the cog's dish, the chainline is...
  23. Loose cog on Sturmey Archer 3-speed hub okay?

    I built up an S-A AW for my winter bike, and on my maiden voyage discovered that the cog was slipping under torque. On closer inspection, I realized that the cog itself was not engaging the splines...

    This is true, if you buy new rings and a new BB it's expensive. But the most expensive Phil units (with Ti spindles) seem to lose a lot of value compared with the less expensive stainless versions,...

    Yep. This is what makes Phil BBs so nice. And not only do you have both L/R adjustable rings, but the spindle itself is only press-fit into the cartridge; there are no locating shoulders. Thus you...
