cool 8)

to ditch the big ring you could either cut the tabs off an old ring and use those or file down the female art of the bolt

did these ever have a habit of cracking at the chainstay/bottom bracket area ? im tempted to remove the chainstay bridge from my frame and have gussets put on but need to give it enough thought

Thanks...Good idea, I thought of that, but didn't want to take anymore time with this build; this was just a quickie for the fun of it. It'll be getting broken down or sold as is, to make room for other cool stuff 8)

Had a rubber boot around the opening of the seat tube...peeled it off to see if there was anything weird going on underneath....all clean, perhaps I should've left it on since it holds out moisture well, and I don't know where I'm going to get a replacement :?


I found that if you buy an inner tube and a pair of scissors you get about 100 boots (I think that's where Bontrager got them from too!)

Thanks; I was trying to remember when I picked them up. I actually picked them up a couple years before every getting the bonty. They were just sitting around for the right time.

haha thanks...but be careful what you wish for...there's a whole lot of rubbish in that parts bin in addition to what you see here :wink:

Thanks, Al, you're right...wasn't even thinking of that, but I see it can be done...without even trying haha.

Ah...good idea; thanks. Might go this route if I decide to keep it.
