  8. Road Brake Levers with Roller Cam Brakes

    Has anyone ever used road brake levers on Suntour roller cam brakes before? I'm wondering if you can comment on the braking feel or leverage. I was considering mustache bars or just road brake levers...

    This is a simple question. I have an 87 Schwinn High Sierra, which has a 6 speed freewheel. The IRD 7 speed freewheel has a different stack height than the 6 speed. Would I be able to upgrade to a 7...

    I currently have a Shimano 6503 FD. Actually, as of today it is working but not 100%. I have the derailleur set so close to the middle ring that the teeth on the middle ring barely touch (by a hair)...

    So the Shimano CX70 it is? Is a cyclocross front derailleur that is designed for a small tooth difference work with a larger tooth difference for the inner chainring?
  14. I'm not going for lower gearing but to optimize...

    I'm not going for lower gearing but to optimize my gearing for a better shift pattern and better chain line. I'm trying to achieve a 46/40/30 or 46/40/26 gearing so that I can have true crossover...

    I just read an article by Jan Heine that describes front derailleurs and chainring sizing. Trouble with STI Triples | Off The Beaten Path I think I'm going to get the Shimano CX70 or another cross FD.

    Thanks for everyone's input. 130mm rear wheels that are decent are hard to come by at our local co-op. I found a good 135mm rear wheel and am going to spread the frame. The bike is not posted on the...
  20. Trek Single Track 930 - rear hub spacing

    Someone stole the rear wheel off of my trek single track 930. It seems that a 135mm rear hub is too wide. I'm assuming that the rear dropouts are spaced at 130mm. Is this true? So hard to find a...
