Suntour dork disk - anyone want it? Spoken for.

if anyone wants this, you can have it for shipping. I hate to throw it away, it's not yellowed and not cracked - but I don't think I'll use it. It came off a Cannondale ST600.

I’ll take it.

I’ve wrapped the chain on my Super Course twice this year. I think I’ve adjusted the RD to prevent that, but some insurance wouldn’t hurt. The first wrap gouged four spokes bad enough that I decided to replace them.

I like some of the aluminum ones- they look classy- if they're not too big and gaudy.

I get a kick out of this- Suntour Superbe Pro and XC Pro on a Trek 400 Elance- with a Suntour dork disk.

Somewhat surprisingly, it's spoken for. Just seemed a shame to toss it, glad it is of use to a BF member.

Not that surprising, knowing this crowd. But I am surprised that it was spoken for based on its purpose; I was expecting to see a response from someone doing a period-perfect restore.

LOL! Sometimes you just have to raise your hand and admit, “hello, my name is Dave, I am a dork.”

Yeah, I'm still waiting for someone who wants the Helicomatic dork disc I've been saving in a drawer. It comes with a matching hub and freewheel.

Funny you should mention. How many speeds is the freewheel? I actually just recently bought an '83-ish Trek with a Helico, but for some reason it's only a 5-speed, so I'm on the lookout for a 6.

The pie plate is pristine, BTW.

It's a 6-speed, 13/15/17/20/24/28, yours for free. PM me your address if you want it.

For sure. The great thing about them is that you don't have any stress buying a replacement, wondering if what you'll get is actually British or Italian or French threaded.

How can you sell a bike as original if you've removed the dork disk?

One of the funniest threads here was about the guy who removed a plastic dork disc with a propane torch. Classic.

I was going to say, 'I'm thinkin' that folks who'd want a bike with an original dork disc wouldn't be bright enough to know if it was missing or not," but that sounds mean, so I won't say that.

Never figured this thread to go anywhere, but maybe I didn't consider the mindset of the C&V group. Certifiable?

When you have such a rag-tag group of people into discussing all things bike, with an already know sense of not following the norms of convention (i.e. riding vintage), then a debate about the pro's of dork disk doesn't seem all that strange really...
