    The shifters say 7 speed, so go for it. You should stick with a 7 speed SunTour freewheel, though. It might work with a Shimano 7 speed cassette. Maybe the original FW was replaced with a 6 speed...

    Right now, two of my bikes are 7 speed equipped and have friction shifting. With the older Shimano derailleurs I'm using the shifts are slow, as to be expected. I've mixed Shimano cassettes and...

    Mine did as well. Of course, that was back in the day when a new XT derailleur only cost $34.99, so I changed all of the components over to XT M-700,
    except for the Tomaselli brake levers!

    Pars,

    I've got a set of M452 Mountain LX crank arms, 170 length. There's one nick next to the crank arm bolt hole on the DS side, but the threads are good. The back sides of the arms are in VG...

    They do look quite retro! Personally, I need something with traction; I can barely walk as it is!

    In their day, they were about as good as you could get in a clincher rim. When you saw that sticker, you knew you were looking at a better quality bike.

    Most kind of you to say, bikedued and noglider! It was, quite simply, the most epic bike ride I've ever done.

    m3rle,

    It's a quantum difference in ride between your '90 Stumpy and one of the old timers. Not only frame construction, but in frame geometry as well.

    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...

    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...
