I bought a Bob Jackson frame off criagslist a few months ago, and now I finally have some money to put into the project.
The first thing I noticed about the frame is that there is some pieces of something (metal?) sliding around in the top tube. Any suggestions on how to take care of this problem. I'm worried if I drill a hole large enough where the seat tube meets the top tube, it will weaken the frame. It's reynolds 531.
If anyone's interesting, here's a link to a photo.
Also, off topic, what wheelset does everyone recommend from Ben's Bikes or possibly other onlines shops. I've read the rants against NYCbikes so I'll probably stay away from them. I plan to spend $175-200 for a decent fixed setup for street riding. Would like something with a fairly sturdy rim, and sealed bearings.
