    Think of it this way... when there's no tension on the chain, the chain is quite flexible laterally (side to side). Just grab the chain with your hand and you'll see. As FB explained, once you put...

    Thanks for the ride through the TdF Time Machine, fietsbob!

    It's cool to see the evolution of many designs in these photos, such as handlebars, shifting systems, etc.

    dellwilson,

    Does the crank on your son's bike look similar to this?

    Todd,

    The High and Low Limit screws control the physical movement of the derailleur. You can detach the cable from the Anchor bolt to adjust the High and Low Limit, and use your hand to physically...

    OK...

    In the second photo, see the Phillips head screw on top of the shifter, with the D shaped ring? That is the tension adjustment for the shift lever. Take a screwdriver and tighten the screw...

    Just as an aside, the appropriate crank set to use would definitely be the Sugino AT. Appropriate because it was introduced, along with Mountech DR's, as part of the 1983 Dirt Components Ensemble. It...

    I don't know... should Shimano still manufacture replacement parts for Light Action M series components? Deerhead Deore XT? Lark? In fact, do they?

    If Campy is using the same methodology of 'planned obsolescence' that Shimano subscribes to, then it very well could be the case.

    I totally agree... they worked for me back in the day, and have also helped me recuperate from recent surgery on both knees. I've equipped all of my bikes with them.

    There are times that a seat post needs to be trimmed, as fietsbob and mconlonx have said. I've done it many times in order to get the seat lower on a 24" kids MTB, or in order to fit myself better.

    If you're going to use just the inside and middle positions of a 74/110 triple, 74mm BCD chain rings are made in 30, 32 and 34 tooth sizes... then, a 30/50 could be made as you desire.

    I would concur with what the others have said; you should be able to find a good 48 to 50cm size bike for your needs. Typically, step through frames (ladies or...
