oh it's a bearing and pulley!

no cable stop on the seat tube for me, so i have to do the same as the Trek posted above. issue with my frame is that the hole for the cable end is on the bottom bracket shell, so i've been told this will limit me to using a non-cartridge type bottom bracket as i won't have the clearance once the rivnut/bolt is in place. :(

OK. I started on the cable stops today.

This is what I have so far. I'll make 3 more and send them to you to determine the proper place to drill the cable stop counter bore holes.

Hah! Your bike is very similar to mine. Is your fork also from a 'Softride'?

I'm also quietly looking for a better looking fork, hopefully one day i'll get an elusive Funk Big Fork... :roll: I already have a number of period-correct suspension forks that I could throw on but I want to keep it rigid.

So at the very LEAST, i'll be having gears in the back. :D

Think I need to get a move on stripping the nasty paint finish off the frame/fork. :? :oops: :roll:
