    I would suggest you talk to an industrial bearing house if you're looking for some special application. Most big cities have one or two businesses like this.

    The bearings in bicycles are subjected...

    We're thread-jacking, but that's how I bowl.

    I've never seen the 600EX high-flange cassette hubs in the wild. I'd love to find some.

    Shimano 600EX cassettes started with 5 speed in the early '80's. I've never seen one- why would anyone want a 5 speed when you could have 6?

    I think this was the difference. With my ham-handed shifting (my fingers must taste good- my kitty is licking them as I type), the SunTour freewheel would allow the chain to skate on top of the teeth...

    Oh, hellz yes. I spent many hours way back when figuring out what weird combinations I could make off of the SunTour New Winner cog display. My old Superior had a 12-34 7-speed (in addition to a...

    When I was swapping freewheels among bikes, the difference between SunTour and Shimano Uniglide freewheels was dramatic. Since then, I've gone Hyperglide & indexing on all of my bikes but the...

    I have a 24-42-52 triple on my recumbent. The 24-42 shift works reliably if it's undertaken carefully, but then I've been shifting wide-range triples since the early '80's.

    Chain suck is when the chain gets jammed on the chainring due to wear, bad geometry, slack derailleur or any combination. This causes the lower run of the chain to be sucked around the chainring,...

    Definitely not a Klein. Many many mountain bikes of that era (late '80's) had under-chainstay mounted U-brakes. Do you have better pictures of the seat cluster and the headset/handlebar stem area?...

    It might be normal, it might not. Try this: remove the cartridge, then try threading in the left side on its own. It's not unusual to get it cross-threaded, so take it easy. One way of working around...

    Yes.

    In fact, you don't have to restrict yourself to SunTour. Any 5-speed freewheel will thread right on to the existing hub. The tough part will be finding a nearly-new 5-speed freewheel with a...

    Skipping while under load is almost a certainty when you combine a new chain with old cogs. The smallest cog has worn so its pitch is slightly longer than the original 1/2". You can tell by the...
