Well, it actually came yesterday, but the rebuilt wheels came in for my Raleigh DL-1.

Jealous! I've always wanted a black Swift. Closest I've gotten is a green one...no where near as nice!

Sorry for the late reply, Bianchigirll, it fits my vintage Kirtland bag which was originally made to fit the classic Minoura stem mounted bag support that was used for many of the handlebar bags of that day...so I can assume it would fit a vintage Cannondale bag. I got this Nitto support because my dirt drop stem causes the Minoura bag mount to hold the bag at too severe of an angle. The Nitto bag support is good for 2.4 or up to 26.0 h-bars

edit* I just checked and the 'prongs' are 250mm apart and 155mm long.

If I told, it wouldn't be a double secret project then.


With any luck, they will be done by the Madison swap. I had something crap out on me and I won't pay the going rate for an original. Then I figured if I can make 1, I can make a bunch.

A set of HED wheels for my TT bike. Getting the tubulars off will be tedious.

A bottom bracket for my Centurion Facet. Brand new Octalink, via Amazon.

If you aren't reusing the tubulars, cut them with a knife and peel them off like a banana. Short work.

Yep.

If the glue bed is not excessive, just reglue over the old.

If it is, an acetone or GooGone works fine.

Are the HEDs cf or alloy?
