Interesting, both SJX and zacster. I don't really want to switch to a cassette system on this bike; I have always loved the NR hubs and don't want to put that much into it right now for a new wheel/cassette.

SJX: what are you using for a chain on that? Shimano HG (92 is it)?

John E: if I went to a 7 speed FW, couldn't I just add a spacer on both sides, maybe 1mm or so? Avoid redishing that way?

The bike is a 73 Raleigh RRA; Campy vertical dropouts on the rear. It came with a std. 6 speed FW (Maillard? can't recall what it had on it new).
