I have the original headset installed and it's all good. I took it to the LBS to set it. Smooth turning and no play. Thanks for your help.


I found out the hard way, but do appreciate you...

Yeah, it's cartridge. It would be returnable, but you can tell I tried to install it. I will just hold onto it for the next bike. :)

Headset Crown Race Size

I searched the forums and read Sheldon's cribsheet and Park Tools articles on headset sizing, but I'm still confused and having trouble.
I'm replacing the headset on my Panasonic which has a Tange...

I acquired this DX-6000 earlier this year. Just finished building it up with 9 speed STI. It's a fun, fast, responsive rider.

I had SR bars stamped CT (I think). Liked them a lot and would usually ride them in the drops. I would have kept them, but they were a bit too narrow.

Could be a late '70s Grand Touring. Would be a good deal at $80 CAD.

It's a 6500 hub. I did not take a close look at the freehub to see if it was a replacement, but I don't think it is. It is a little discerning to have 3.7mm of spacers but it does match up well with...

Update
I ended up going with another 1.85 spacer. It matched the extended carrier from the DA cassette. So now I have two 1.85 spacers. One which sits in the carrier recess which makes it flush with...

Good point on the small cog/seat stay clearance. Not too concerned about the lock ring engaging with an additional spacer. It definitely has a lot more threading available than the dura ace cassette....

Peculiar 9 Speed Cassette Spacing

I recently changed my 9 speed 12-23 dura ace cassette with a 9 speed 12-27 cassette. It was advertised as ultegra, but who knows. The ultegra cassette came with the 1.85 spacer which I figured was...

95 Trek 820 uses a 28.6 front derailleur clamp. Shimano still makes the Altus line and should be available in 28.6. It's probably for 3x9, but will work for 3x7.

I have SKS on my Grand Touring in the same color scheme. They do look great. Mine is setup with porteur bars. It makes a great commuter. I will have to post some pictures to my gallery.

Holy smokes. What were they thinking! At first I thought it was a white bike to memorialize where a cyclist was killed.

It's certainly not easy working with Suntour. I think I will first try a freewheel with a 28 to see how the Sprint handles it. I have X1 on my Trek MTB that I can try if the Sprint can't handle it.

Thank you for all the advice and recommendations.
Is the RD cage the only thing that determines the capacity? I was wondering if I could replace the Sprint cage with a longer cage from an MTB RD.
