    Thanks, Jon, and good for you. Maybe you can point me toward someone who can smooth out the OEM front Araya. Meantime, I've got a lesser set of wheels on the way. They'll keep me riding on old...

    Both were performed by and on the advice of my LBS.

    Every day I learn more and more.

    And to be honest, I didn't want to discard or remove or store those beautiful Araya OEM rims.

    Oh well....

    Here is a Super Course headset from the early '80s. The upper race is slotted, as is the locknut. You hand-tighten the upper race, then use a tuning-fork thingie to tighten the locknut. Odd.

    Just Ride

    This morning, I put 30 miles on a 30-year old Raleigh. It's a steel bike, a thoroughbred in its day. This one was hard to get right - wheels, brakes, derailleurs - but it's getting tight now, and I...

    No - I DO, in fact, want another threaded wheel and free hub sprocket assembly. Not sure where you got that, but maybe I mis-typed.

    If it works out, I'd like to replace both front and rear wheels...
