I need a 6 speed freewheel that goes up to between 26 and 28 teeth. I am pushing a 22 tooth around at the minute and its hilly and my knees are starting to moan. I have record hubs and don't mind paying for a decent freewheel.
Cheers john

How do I do that?
I don't want a modern one, I would prefer a period one

Regina / Everest would be 'period'...they are all NOS ( new old stock ) but you'll pay £45 AND you should fit a new chain preferably.

I suggested Shimano because they are 'period' but still available in large quantities and very inexpensive.

...or you can search Ebay of course...

First double check that the rear mech can cope with the large cog :). I have bought from campyoldy, not the cheapest but the kit I got was brand new from the 70's and I have never heard a bad word about him. Any chance of getting a smaller chainring ?

I got some stuff from campyoldy and he was easy and pleasant to deal with. I found him to be WAY cheaper than ebay.

I am running a 41 on a record chainset, so no smaller and the rear mech is super record and my homework said it should shift upto 28 teeth

Just to add, I had contact with Nigel at Campyoldy yesterday (following a few emails) and he was a pleasure to deal with and more than helpful - this was demonstrated by an email he sent me today with some answers to an odd query i had. I think if you have something specific you want, he will go out of his way to assist.

41T front and 22 rear = 50" gear, a 39T ( smallest ring on Campy ) = 47"
or 39T and 28 rear even better 37" gear which I use on all but stupid silly 20% hills where I use a compact ( 34T front )
