    Ok, that's the info I needed about the height versus reach. I'm looking for height. My bars are in a good location, but the "max" line is exposed a bit on the quill. Thanks.

    Quill Stem Length

    I would like to replace my present 2.22 cm quill stem with a longer one. When the spec says it is 130 mm, what is that measurement? Is that the length that can safely extend outside frame?

    Thanks. Some of these have been checked but i'll check again. Gruppo, is that the spacing from dropout to dropout?

    Took entire bike in to shop. They were very nice about it and put it right on stand. Going to replace the freewheel with a 14-28. Doubt I would have used the largest cog anyway these days. Have...

    Thanks for the good explanation, Andrew. It is the mega-range. I can use friction shifting. I'm going to talk to the shop and see what they can do. Are there any 6-cog freewheels compatible?
