    Yes, the FD is a triple FD, meant for a a crankset with similar rings sizes to mine.

    Replacement for ancient Marzocchi XC500

    So I've finally come to the conclusion that I will not be able to save this old fork. I need a replacement for my hardtail, which is mostly hooked up to my bike trailer these days. I don't need...

    I use auto oil when I'm too lazy to pull apart and grease. I actually like it better on a brake caliper application because I find grease attracts too much road grit. I just oil a little more...

    Honestly, for the amount of $ you're going to drop on drivetrain components, it would be pretty easy to buy a used low / mid-level road bike with everything you want on it.

    Given the number of issues you list, I think another bike would be your best solution. Especially frame alignment. Old 10 speeds are dirt cheap - find one with fewer issues.

    Definitely a shorter stem will help. Sounds like the whole ensemble (handlebars and shifters) is too far forward of the contact point of the front wheel.

    I've seen this "milling" done with a bastard file. That's how I'd approach it, but none of my bikes are worth that much.

    Should be fine. I've done it tons of times. The bonus is you don't have to be as cautious about not pinching the tube when you re-seat the tire.

    So my drivetrain knowledge is almost exclusive to past-generation square-taper components, but don't you automatically need a longer bottom bracket spindle for a mountain BB shell? It's 73mm vs. 68,...

    This sounds mickey mouse, but it's tripped me up more than once: is the wheel totally aligned in the drops?

    It really sounds like the cable's hanging up somewhere - you're able to overcome it...

    I think both of the obvious culprits have been covered, and it may be a combination of both tension and chain wear. It sounds like your tension is just a little too high.
