Mavic aero brake levers (early 90s)
48T 130BCD 3/32 chainring
1" threaded lightweight cross fork - alloy or steel WHY?

And like everybody else building a retro cross bike - a bike's worth of Mafac or Weinmann cantis in usable condition.

Any leads to an online bike shop that sells spokes would be appreciated too.

Never bought any from them, but have had good service with other purchases.

Ive got some SRP titanium cantilever brakes if you want to go a bit upmarket (a full bikes worth i think )

they are pretty rare doodads though , so id need a reasonable offer to part with them

I have a new unused 48t 130bcd chainring. Think it must be 1/8th" cos when I fitted it my 3/32" chain was snagging.

Yours for £10 posted, pic if you're interested.

I run 34/50 and I've NEVER used the top ring in CX. A lot of people in the UK run a single 36 or 38T ring at the front.

Tel - I need 3/32.
Scrapper - I already have some "OK" cantis on the bike - M730XT which are right timeframe - the only "spot on" ones for this project would be Weinmann or Mafac.
Mike - You are of course correct. But the Mavic Starfish-type chainset won't take smaller than 48T on the largest chainring position - and it would look downright odd having a gap and then the 38T.
Makrie - thanks for the tip. Just what I needed.

In fact thanks all 3.

Good luck!
