    Dawes Double Blue Redivivus

    I know people who have various complaints about Ebay--mostly as sellers, I think--but from a buyer's perspective it's a pretty amazing resource. When the Double Blue got bumped on a car rack a few...

    I have a Stronglight 99 crankset--the newer version that takes a standard puller--with 170 arms that I'd like to trade for a Stronglight 93 with 170 or 175 arms. No chainrings included or sought,...

    Sticky: If any of you Cannondale enthusiasts out there...

    If any of you Cannondale enthusiasts out there are looking for a Cannondale bottle with the Velcro holder, I have one. The holder mounts to the frame with screws via the usual braze-ons. I can put up...

    Bad choice of words. I'm building up a cheap and reliable but not theft-resistant bike with quick releases front and rear. Keeping it from getting stolen is my son's problem--he seems to have a good...
  7. Ta-da! Fanfare of horns! I think we have an...

    Ta-da! Fanfare of horns! I think we have an answer--I just need a 3/8 x 26 tpi axle. I still may repurpose a set of 5-speed wheels, since that doesn't seem like a very robust axle for a six-speed...

    Boy, I love confusion.

    As I mentioned above, a nut from a bolt-on Suntour hub--which I believe must be 10 x 25.4, since the same nut threads cleanly onto every other Japanese rear axle I've tried...

    This particular dead horse has been thoroughly beaten by now, but I think I'm finally clear on the threading (something I could have done at the outset by finding buying a thread gauge). The solid...

    I think you meant "scream in outrage," not "terror."

    No, I'm not--just doing a little gratuitous chain-yanking. It's a bad habit, I know.

    I had a Super Mirage that I bought new in 1979, rode for a long time, and finally gave to my son to ride in New York. He reports that it now has a cracked frame, so I'm building him another bike. It...

    Okay, then if I understand you correctly, the 9.5 x 26 listing for Schwinn Approved Made in France hubs found in Sutherlands is incorrect--it should be listed as 9.5 x 25.4. It evidently is possible...

    Thanks, dddd. Sorry to be so dense, but this is pretty confusing. Are you saying that the earlier reference from Sutherland's--which specified a 9.5 x 1 threading for the Schwinn-approved axle--is...

    You're saying I can't reuse the cones from the solid axle--I need new cones as well as a new axle?

    What kind of a monster are you? Didn't you read the part where the seller mentions that he wants it to go to a good home?

    Okay, maybe I just need to force the nuts on a little harder. Maybe I can find a Normandy axle at the bike co-op.
  17. Since you've got Sutherland's there in front of...

    Since you've got Sutherland's there in front of you, is the Normandy/Maillard/Atom rear threading also 9.5 x 1.0? Or what?
  18. Axle/Cone Threading for Schwinn-Approved "Made in France" hub?

    I'm fixing up a 1984 Schwinn World Sport as a theft-resistant city rider for my son, and I want to install a hollow quick-release axle in place of the solid bolt-on rear axle that's on there now....

    Repurposing a worn out ring with the teeth filed off worked well for me.

    You've done a public service by slightly increasing the rarity of bikes of the same year and model that still have intact decals. That's why the world isn't crammed full of all-original antiques....

    Yes, agreed--the head badge (and the bike) is a Miyata, the stem shifters--though made by Suntour--are badged as Motobecane.

    The Huret mounting claws like the one in that photo are pretty short. A longer claw might give you enough clearance, but I don't know if Huret made any longer ones. All the ones that I've seen are...

    I forgot to mention it in my previous post, but I second fietsbob's observation about the difficulty of getting started again with low gearing on a steep slope. The key is to keep moving on at all...

    399659

    Bob, you and I are probably the only people on the planet who are riding triplized Campy cranks with a custom freewheel topping out at 38 teeth. I think I've posted this photo here before;...

    Nice bike--I have a men's version in a 25" frame, same approximate year and color. I built a new set of wheels for it with two cogs on a Sturmey-Archer AW and ran it as a six-speed for a few years,...
