The Shimano external BB (BB-4600) on my commuter bike has developed the dreaded knockin' and a rockin' so it's all change and I'm going to downgrade it from Tiagra 10-speed to Tourney 7-speed. The strip down went OK this morning and I've slapped in a really smooth UN-55 square taper BB that came out of the parts box as did a Chinese 'Litepro' 48/38 chainset. I already have the Tourney shifters and mechs and will re-use the Shimano BR-R451 57mm drop brakes but with new pads as I was just getting down to the metal on the rear. Apart from the pads ($23 inc. postage) I've had to purchase a new cassette and have gone for a ridiculously cheap 8-speed SRAM 12-23 ($9 inc. postage) so that I avoid a spacer and have a built-in spoke protector (albeit a heavy one). Everything else, including the chain and bartape is already on the shelf.

This is my only bike with fenders so thankfully it's dry here for 4-5 days so a mid-week wrenching session when my parts arrive should see my commuter back on the road before my next shift (Thursday).

Edit: Apologies folks for not noticing that this thread is within C&V.

Man's. Is it other than an A08? I'm thinking something else. Thoughts?
I'm addressing things left undone, hubs, headset, rear derailleur pivot tension, etc. Also truing and a bad tube.

Lady's bike..

I haven't evaluated this yet. They complained of little things not quite right. Mostly, their friend made nice choices: hammered fenders and VO saddles...

'Honest Fixie/SS and a "wet-bike" trainer

I have been riding singlespeeds as my urban steed for a few years, and have always had to fuss with the rear wheel alignment, etc...I finally started hunting for a bonafide track frame (an older KHS/Ritchey frame originally commissioned by <SanFranCyclo.com> and transferred my SS setup to it...so much nicer!! (pics below)

Also working on getting a meaningful 'wet bike' together that will still be fun to train on in the winter. Have an older Miyata 710 (that was also my most recent SS) and bought a middle-aged bike with a VGC Shimano 105 group and some decent Cane Creek Crono wheels (after truing). Scored some SKS P35 fenders on clearance from REI and ready to start building. The 710 has nice clearance for 28mm tires and full mounting bosses (unlike my main roadie Miyata Team Pro). I'm tired of hosing off my MTP...hope I finish it before the rain stops!!

Here are the SS/Fixie pics (question to all...is it worth buying/making a single stem spacer to replace the 3 that I had lying about?

23 pounds before lights and U-Lock. This will get a new saddle (WTB CroMoly Volt) in a few days. The Specialized is shot


Really dig the function and look of the Suntour Superbe brakes. Have had these in storage for >> a decade!

I cleaned up my '74 Paramount after several months of having not ridden it after a wet ride home sometime near the end of last year. The tan wall Soma tires I did have on it were dirty, so I opted to just swap on freshly cleaned Compass tires after getting the wheels back to their previously shiny state. Both sets of tires I bought used for cheap, and both were very dirty and I employed some Meguiar's car wash soap and a sponge/brillo pad with warm water in the tub to clean them up.

The front wheel needed truing and a decent upping of spoke tension. The rear didn't need much truing at all, but some spoke tension increase was dialed in as it was also low. The real discovery, which was a bummer, was small longitudinal stress cracks on the rear rim by the spoke holes/eyelets--three or four of them have it. I have no idea how long they've been like that, but suffice it to say, a solution must be reached. I have a few ideas I'm entertaining:

1) Find and buy a used/NOS/whatever polished Mavic MA2 rim, 700C, green/yellow label (late '80s/early '90s), 32 hole
2) Replace both rims with Pacenti Brevets
3) Replace both rims (and likely spokes?) with H + Son TB14s (polished)

Depending on who you ask (or look up), MA2's have an ERD of 612 or 613mm (Zinn says 613mm). The Brevets have an ERD of 611mm and the TB14's have an ERD of 610mm.

Part of me thinks I could get away with just swapping the Brevets without changing the spokes as the ERD is so close. I'd use new brass nipples of course. I'll have to check to see how deep the spokes go into the nipples' threading. That will tell me a lot right away.

Why not change spokes, too? Well, for one, it's another expense and two, the current spokes are externally butted and we all know: match-match-match. And on the flagship? I think we know the answer. The 7400 hubs are still in great shape and spin forever. And given everything, my most economical option is likely to be finding another MA2 rim in great shape and simply changing it over. This 7400 hub/double-butted spokes/polished MA2 wheelset is my favorite, is only bestowed upon special bikes, and at 30 years old, owes nobody anything as it has held up extremely well over time. I've owned them for three or four years and they remain solid. I won't be riding bikes for a little bit here for a number of reasons, so there's no urgency per se. I'm currently deciding on some fenders for it as I seek to solidify its all-around capability as I continue and plan the winnowing of the fleet.

Anyway, here's a picture!

I just built some new wheels with brand new TB14s on first generation White Industies hubs with new nips and used spokes. Then by the end of a 43 mile ride yesterday, I concluded that they don't look quite right on my Raleigh Comp. G.S. I'll be ordering new spokes to rebuild the rims onto my Tipo rear, Record front hubset. The five speed hub makes for a better chainline too.

Same happened to me with my '60 Paramount and a set of wheels I built for it using '80s Ofmega hubs. They just looked too new with the old bike. Had to switch some wheels around between bikes to use Campy hubs on the Schwinn.

FWIW, I was recently given two sets of first gen White Industries hubs. The rears are 130 mm OLN and both sets polished up VERY NICELY. This is how a new bike begins with me.....an unusual component falls into my lap and I end up building a complete bike around it. My dilemma now is what kind of frame these hubs "belong" with. Something in the mid to later 1990's perhaps. I'll know it when I see it. I agree that those hubs wouldn't look right on your Raleigh.

Id like to find an old Gary Fisher, but all the ones I see are way too small. 😒

I have to confess, I had a bike shop loosen my old pedals yesterday, as I didnt have a pedal wrench. But I did use a cone wrench to snug up my new-to-me Sakae Low Fat pedals. 😁

Im liking these pedals quite a bit, already. 👍

I'd guess yours is an 89, my 88 has the U-brake. Great townie with fenders and rack.

One-Inch Threadless Woes

Back in October, I sent my Bilenky Tourlite fork back for some modification. I wanted to have the steerer tube extended because the stock steerer was cut too short either by the PO or Bilenky & Crew. The cut was also not perpendicular to the steerer tube, so that was irritating as well.

Irritating is just the start of it.

I'm taking it for granted that those of you with 1" threadless steerers know how difficult it is to secure headests and stems for this size. I'm fortunate to have a sweet Chris King Headset for this bike, but there is no love for anyone wanting a nice stem that will fit 1" tube and 31.8 handlebars.

Anyway...

I messages Steve Bilenky about my fork and he called me. He was all over it. Very proactive, from him phoning me to Sunday morning emails; he was eager to get my business. He said he'd have my fork done by Thanksgiving - basically giving me a one month lead time on the job.

This is where things fell flat.

Thanksgiving came and went, and no fork. I called him and he said it'd be done by Christmas. Nope. Now we were into 2020 by a week or so and I called again. No dice. He said he'd get it out to me. Still waited. He needed a different sized tube - one that he had to order because it wasnt in stock. Finally it came. The pics you see here are after I have been massaging the tube with 180 grit sandpaper. I had to wash out the copious amount of flux still caked inside the headtube and crusted on the paint.

The top part of the headtube is .004 larger diameter than the original tube, so now I have to file/abrade/coax/swear/massage it down to where the top headset ring will fit. Its tight! Its tight and I dont want to waste the o-ring inside by forcing it. Oh, I'll get it eventually, but not without some laborious work. *sigh* guess I'll sit in the chair by the woodstove, and rub rub rub...

You also mention Sakae. The bike I tuned-up and cleaned last night is an old steel Fuji CX-350. It has a Sakae crank-set on it, otherwise mostly Shimano. The bike is a wonderful mixte steel frame. Truthfully, it didn't look like much, but surprised the heck out of me because it tuned up so fast, cleaned right up too. It's crisp, quick and comfortable. It's a joy to ride! I'll take it out again today for awhile.

My wife was a little concerned when I brought these bikes home, but now she loves them too.
Yep, the world would be much happier, if we had more decent-quality platform pedals. 🤡 😉

Man, I had some crappy luck today though, to keep me humble, I guess. I ran over an old piece of carpet (hidden by weeds), while walking my bike through the corner of a field. Somehow, it became unraveled enough to get tangled up in my rear derailleur pulleys. It was way more hassle to straighten out, than youd think. 🤔

But, a crappy day makes you appreciate the good ones more, right? 😁😉
