    Have you looked at the shifter pods and spacers from Rivendell?

    If it's the same as the one in my previous post, it's a freewheel. It can be removed with the Park FR-1.2.

    I wouldn't blame Dick's. If it was missing from the start it probably would have been noticed it sooner. It probably cracked while mashing uphill in the highest gear. Based on your description it...

    I don't know of any general purpose cutters for 5mm steel cable that are in the same price range as the bike specific cutters. I use the Park CN-10.

    Is it 48/38/28 or 48/36/26? There are a number of FDs that have a 12 tooth minimum difference between big and middle ring. For a 48/38/28 build I did recently I used a Shimano Altus FD-M310 because...

    The second character being an "H" indicates that it is from 1972 but the first character shouldn't be an "O". Could it be a "C" or "G". Burgundy was a 1 year color option only for 1972.

    But those frames usually had a nub on the downtube to prevent the clamp from slipping.

    If the tube isn't pierced, just keep on riding it. As far as the brake levers, grind off the suicide lever mounts and put some cane creek hoods on.

    I've used a Toshiba netbook (with spinning HDD) on 3 tours (about 1700 miles). It goes in a DVD player case in a rear pannier. Anything important is stored on the cloud.

    Not sure if the T50 is stiff enough for a belt but the 74 tooth chainrings should fit at 704mm. The drive calculator isn't for timing belts.

    The reason I chose a nutted rear is because QR skewers can slip in semi-horizontal dropouts. (Especially if they have external cams.)



    It could be that Peugeot was using the same jigs for...

    If your femurs are different lengths, you can use different sized cranks. If your tibias are different lengths, you can use different thickness soles or cleat shims. The poor solution is to fit the...

    If your current gear cluster is a Maillard Helicomatic, it will also need replacement. These are the wheels I'd go with these: (QR front, nutted rear)

    Once you use a master link with one chain it should not be transferred to another chain.

    With vintage jockey wheels there are 3 key dimensions. Number of teeth, overall thickness, and axle hole diameter. As long as all three match, it will work.

    I certainly does matter. Those tires aren't made to retain air longer than a race stage. Get some butyl based "training" tires for everyday use.

    But if you have access to nitrogen there is no...

    That's a Schwinn S-6 or Raleigh EA.1 size. AFAIK the Kenda K23 and the CST Raleigh Sport are the only options.

    If you have a Schwinn get the Kenda, for a Raleigh get the CST.

    Aside from the fact that they are different alloys, 531 is seamless and was available for all tubes, 501 is seamed and was only available for the main tubes (and often paired with hi-ten stays).

    Not worth putting much money into it, it won't be worth more than it takes to fix it up. If the frame fit you or you had parts laying around it might be a different matter.

    The 785 has a low clamp. It's designed primarily for full suspension frames but it's also useful if you don't want the clamp band between the water bottle mounts. The E2 and D variants require...
