List of Windsor Tourist Replacement Parts

I am in the process of overhauling my 2008 Windsor Tourist to prepare for Spring riding. I discovered 3 out of 4 hub cones were pitted and decided to replace all 4. It took some time to figure out what to buy as a replacement. I figured I'd post here the replacement parts for various things in case anyone else around here would like to know. These are parts that bikesdirect doesn't specify (or specifies incorrectly):

Front Hub

Cones: Joy Tech 9x1 size: replacement part is Wheels Mfg #083, Joy Tech/Kk/ 9X1 Front

Axle: 9.0 mm x 1 mm x 110 mm, quick release: replacement part is Wheels Mfg AXLE-17

Bearings: Loose 3/16" bearings (10 on each side), replaced with standard grade 25 bearings


Rear Hub

Cones: Joy Tech 10x1 size: replacement part is Wheels Mfg #081, Joy Tech/Kk/10X1 Rear

Axle: 10.0 mm x 1 mm x ??, quick release: will measure

Bearings: Loose 1/4" bearings (9 on each side), replaced with standard grade 25 bearings


Bottom Bracket

Stock part: Chin Haur model: CH52-68 / 113.5L / BC 1.37x24T

Replacement: Shimano UN54, English 68 mm x 113 mm


Front Derailleur

Stock part: Shimano Tiagra clamp on, 28.6 mm, NOTE: bikesdirect incorrectly lists this as 31.8 mm

If you inadvertently buy a 31.8 mm clamp on derailleur as I did (thinking bikesdirect specs were correct), you can still use it if you buy a Wheels Mfg front derailleur shim (part no. DER-SPC2).


I've done a bunch of wrenching on this bike now. The only thing I haven't touched yet is the headset. It is labeled "Chin Haur" and is a standard 1" threaded headset. Probably any standard 1" threaded headset could be used as a replacement. If my headset doesn't give me any problems this season, I'll probably replace it next winter just for the heck of it with a NOS Shimano 105 headset with cartridge bearings.

Hope the above information is helpful to other Windsor Tourist owners out there.

Winter is dying down finally and I can't wait to take another tour!

I am about to pull the trigger on this bike-- Do you have any regrets about this purchase?
