    I never thought to reset the tension on the spring! I'll give that a try if the pads and cable adjustments don't give me the stopping power I can live with.

    It could be possible that the spacing isn't wrong...

    It could be possible that the spacing isn't wrong but may be the 13t is too large for the frame??? A couple of my "race" frames can't fit a first cog larger then 12. This becomes a issue when trying...
  3. Well that answers my unasked question about the...

    Well that answers my unasked question about the quality of the BR-6403 pads. Guess that deal I was offered was because no one wants them.

    As far as replacing the calipers/levers on this bike,...
  4. I think it's because I just spent alot of descent...

    I think it's because I just spent alot of descent miles on my rig equipped with dual pivots. Nothing reminds you how well they stop or how bad others are then coming down a +12% grade. I will...

    I'm actually waiting on a deal for 7-10 pairs of Ultegra BR6403 pads for a great deal. Anyone know if the slots in the 600 Arabesque caliper will fit the bolt for these pads? I read the dura ace...

    I just did a quick pad swap with some el-cheapie pads I had laying around. Guess the Shimano's I had were old or maybe I installed old/hard ones by mistake because the cheap ones are a marked...
  7. Improving Shimano 600 stopping power

    I've got too many projects goig on at once so I finally took out the Univega Gran Rally with Shimano Arabesque components. First thing I noticed was the stopping power is pretty dismal. I have...
  8. When you stand at the top of the climb and you...

    When you stand at the top of the climb and you get the shruuuush, shruuuush, shruuuush sounds from the tires as you lean the bike into your pedal stroke. Feels like I'm winning a stage everytime...
  9. Do ratchet type downtube shifters tend to hold...

    Do ratchet type downtube shifters tend to hold their shift position better over all vs friction? or does it all come down to how snug I make the mounting bolt? This is assuming cable stretch is not a...
  10. They shift properly but when on the selected cog...

    They shift properly but when on the selected cog there's a slight noise caused by the derailleur not lining up perfectly with the cog. I have tried all the options. Checking to see if the cages are...
  11. Anyone have experience with Rivendell silver shifters?

    I had a issue with the indexing not being perfect on one of my bikes (7700 dt shifters + xt rear derailleur, 9 speed). Mid ride I switched it to friction and I liked it so much I've decided to...
  12. The planet bike fenders look better with 32-35...

    The planet bike fenders look better with 32-35 tires. I tried them with 28s and it looked spaced out. Most bikes won't take a 32 tire though so the velo orange fenders that are spec'd for the tire...

    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.
  15. Rear shifter or rear derailleur? For the most...

    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...
  18. The lowest possible chainring for a 130bcd is...

    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.
  22. If it fits, nice paint, doesn't need any work...

    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...
