How's your OLN and chainline Theoldfm? Have you had to make any adjustments in that area? Is that a freewheel?


I have no idea what an OLN is but the chain line is fine. The rear wheel is dished over a bit though which helps.

Yes, that is a freewheel!

When I asked about OLN I was asking about the distance between the inside faces of your rear dropouts, or the Outside faces of your LockNuts. Think of how much unnecessary keyboard-work I've saved myself by typing: 'OLN' instead of: 'the distance between the inside faces of your rear dropouts, or the Outside faces of your LockNuts' ... :? :)

Looks like you've got axle-spacers on the non-drive-side. Did you swap over the drive-side and non-drive-side spokes in the hub?

If your like me and don't like the modern michelin words on the tyres,
they can easily be removed by white spirit, just lightly rub the words
so the white spirit soaks in then loosens up the print, then get rubbing
but only lightly and keep turning the cloth, soon it will come off.

Bike is lovely by the way.

I really must get around to doing something with this frame... Either sell or re-rebuild...?
