I think I recall his liking for it as well. Hopefully I can get over not having a matching FD, but I think I'll end up at least coordinating the Cyclone theme. The Mountech is slated to be mounted on...

I usually have coffee before a ride and rarely after. I don't often stop while on a ride, but I should probably plan better routes!

I drilled & tapped the body for a 4mm bolt. It went pretty smoothly even if the bolt didn't end up completely square. I'm thinking I'll build up behind the bolt head with J B Weld - can't hurt &...

I think my reading skills were a little suspect. Seems clear he was saying 1/4" is the correct size.

Not the best pics, but here it is. Pretty sure it's an '84 Stump jumper that is all original (except, of course, the new RD).

I mainly cleaned it out so I could continue riding while out of town, but it was cool to see the inside & how little it takes to stop the upper pulley.

I love that color scheme & where the white accents are located - great looking bike. I have a pair of Smokes too, but I wish the gumwall were a little larger.
