    Nice. I haven't started on my Holdsworth Record yet, unfortunately. HLloyd should have your decals, and I've seen some on the bay as well.

    6s SIS DT shifters exist, but some of the early Shimano...

    Nice bike, but we'll need more and bigger pics.

    I wish I had a lead on the fork, but don't. Maybe someone else will be able to assist.

    10 speed.

    According to the Branford site, there were some late 9s hubs that used the spread valleys, but 10s cogs will fit it anyway.

    Maybe it's just the photo, but do the front and rear rims match? They don't have to be a match, but for $275 I'd like them to at least appear like they belong together. One machined brake track and...

    Maybe, maybe not. It seems like I've seen that some of the early 6s had a different style freehub body from both the DAs and the 10mm hex attachments. But of course that's easy to investigate.

    This opens a whole new can o' worms. When you were saying 6s, I was (and I think the others, too) assuming you were just using the modern term cassette when you really had a freewheel. I have a...

    A 42*18 is giving you about 61 gear inches. The lower the better for climbing. If you went to a 7s freewheel with a 28 large cog, that'll bring you down to about 39 gear inches. That's a lot...

    Depends on the engine. For me, an 18 won't cut it for much. 7-8% grades I'm looking for 25+ in the rear (and I suffer on those bikes with the 24 & 25 large cogs).
