    Ok that eliminates shifter/derailleur issues. If it skips in every gear on the rear then it's more then likely the chain. The way it sits high on the teeth would make it skip. Similar to when...

    What kind of shifter does it have? Could be as simple as tightening down the screw that holds it to the mount.

    Rear shifter or rear derailleur? For the most part any friction shifter should (I hear some don't have enough rotation) be able to accommodate a 9 speed cassette. The rear derailleur will have to be...

    I am using a Nuovo Record RD with a suntour 13-28 6 speed freewheel. The large/largest 2 cogs combo won't work because there's not enough chain wrap capacity. I am running a 54/42/36 NR crankset...

    Ok so you have a cassette/freehub wheel? Is your shifting indexed 7 speed or friction? I ask because you will encounter shifting problems if you use a 8/9/10 speed cassette with indexed shifters. If...

    The lowest possible chainring for a 130bcd is 38t, the bolt holes don't allow smaller. Your options would be a tripalizer chainring (it's a inner chainring with a third chainring bolted to it) but...

    Yes. I had the same question when I first put in 7700 dt shifters. Apparently somewhere mid to late 80s shimano decided that they wanted a 30 degree ride from the downtube on the front shifter to...

    You have to rotate the shifter in the opposite direction of the shifting motion until it reaches the stop before doing the final tightening. It has a internal spring.

    If it fits, nice paint, doesn't need any work (tubes, tires, cables, brakes, grease) then it will make a nice but heavy daily rider. I rode a 70s Zebrakenko for a long while and even though it...

    If the crank threads are stripped you can possibly use either a automotive steering wheel/harmonic balancer puller (can rent from orielly's) or a plumbers compression but puller. That is if we are...

    *sigh* forgive me for not placing a comma between ordered and and. Bash if you will, it will not change the awesomeness of my bike, in fact it will probably increase the awesomeness. Now I am done...

    Good for you then. I'm sure that Miyata is just as fricken awesome to you as my Torelli is to me. I agree tubing alone does not make a bike but it is a integral part in what the bike feels like to...

    I have to disagree with that "nothing special" comment. Anything Columbus is above average. They may not be Bianchi special in your eyes but a hand built Italian frame is a thing of beauty to look...

    My c&v obsession is a pretty solitary hobby, but for me that's the draw. I like building at home alone, I like riding solo, I even avoid most LBS. I went through the faze of being a shop groupie,...

    The lugs and Fork look correct for that style (vintage Italian) of frame, you can look at the bb shell and see if theres some sort of serial number and/or decorative cutaway. Torelli is a American...

    Help identifying this Fuji

    Picked this up for $20 today, the serial number is F3Axxxx. According to the Fuji database this would make it built in Jan 1968/69 right? I cant find a reference to anything from 1969. Anyone...

    I believe the OP was asking about realistic numbers for COMPLETE bike weight, comparing original or correct period builds vs modified builds. Thus the need to weigh the whole bike.
