    "Pantograph" can referee to any details that are cut/stamped out of the surface of the component. Think of the fancy chainrings with a logo cut into them.

    There are many (as in dozen+) ders that could work. First filter is the seat tube diameter. Second is whether the der is intended (speced for) a triple crank. Third is the cable routing (from below...

    Sun Tour freewheel cog spacing was not always consistent WRT the smaller cogs and the larger cogs. Close to the same C-c spacing but not exactly the same. This is but one aspect of the Shimano/Sun...

    The rims will accept pretty much any commonly available "26"" tire (as in 559 ISO), probably happiest with 1.5"-2.2" widths. Frame can accept who knows what widths, as wide as 2.2" is common on dirt...

    Many front shift issues are techinque sourced. After adjustments are confrmed on the stand one needs to remember that a bike is a tool, it responds to the hand (or feet) that control it. Andy.

    Most likely the click is the pads slightly shifting within their cavity, in the caliper. The pads have to have a bit of slop to be able to move in and out during braking on and offs. Andy.
