Hello Retro bike,
I once again have a question for the you knowledgeable folk.
I am building a bike for a tweed run. My last build ended in disaster, i found out it was once in a crash and the TT and DT had ripples. That was a very sad morning.
This is plan two. A early Andy Bone, Nervex pro lugs. 531 and lighter than some of my modern bikes. It's had quite a hard life, not due to me i might add. It is a beautiful frame and deserves a second chance...... I see a re-spray down the line.
I am having an issue with fitting my rear derailleur. due to the shape, none of my rear mechs fit. I took the bolt from a campagnolo mech and it would not tighten or fit in the hanger hole..............Any advice? What can i do? What mech should i look out for? Can i fit a new bolt in my mech?
The tweed run is next week and really need a bike!
