    7 speed 13-32 or 14-32 freewheel

    Looking for a good condition 7 speed freewheel with the above ratios, in progressive steps not a massive jump like the modern mega range ones. Needs to index with Shimano and I would prefer one with hyperglide like teeth (doesn't have to be Shimano tho).

    Where to find 7 speed freewheel

    Posted in the mtb section, but perhaps someone here will know. Looking for a 7 speed freewheel to replace a worn out Sachs 13-32 ARIS one on my tandem. The bike has a Shimano mech though, so that *should* make finding indexing freewheels easy. I'm really struggling to find one that's a 13-32 or...

    Where to buy 7 speed freewheels

    Looking for a 7 speed freewheel to replace a worn out Sachs 13-32 ARIS one on my tandem. The bike has a Shimano mech though, so that *should* make finding indexing freewheels easy. I'm really struggling to find one that's a 13-32 or 14-32. They all seem to either be 13-28 or have a massive jump...

    Sachs Maillard freewheel spacing wrong.

    Hi everyone, I have just purchased a tandem as some of you know, and in the process of smartening it up, I removed and cleaned the freewheel, and replaced the chain. The issue is that, when in the 3rd biggest (in size) cog, the chain rattles and pings on the next largest cog. The freewheel...

    Tandem buying advice

    Hi everyone. I'm looking to buy a tandem for me and my partner to ride the Land's End to John O Groat's cycle in our gap year. I'm looking for some advice for what to look out for when buying older tandems. I know a proper eccentric BB is a must, as well as proper 40 spoke tandem hubs and...

    Carlton Corsair, as original as possible

    I'm after a carlton corsair, in the 23/23.5 inch size (depending on whether its C to C or the whole tube). It needs to be almost all original, as this will be my last deliberate retro bike purchase for a while, so it needs good paint, and original components. I'm not fussy about contact points...

    Where to buy keyed washers for pedals?

    After taking apart some miche pedals for servicing, the key on the keyed washer on the axle has sheared off and I now cannot put the pedals back together. Does anyone know where I could get some keyed washers from for replacing them, the axle was roughly 8mm diameter so I think its an M8 thread...

    Where to find the frame number on a raleigh mirage

    Like the title says I think I must be missing something really obvious. I've checked under the bottom bracket shell, on the headtube, on the fork steerer, on the read dropouts. I can't find anything other than the previous owner's postcode stamped into the shell. I assumed all bikes must have...

    Raleigh Mirage gravel bike build

    Hi everyone, this is my first time posting a pic of one of my bikes, and it is my finished lockdown project - a raleigh mirage mountain bike that has now got drop bars. I think it fits in best in the MTB section tho. Aside from the new shifters, bar and quill stem adapter (and seat but that...

    Suntour VX long cage or suntour SVX long cage

    Like the title says I want a long cage VX or SVX. The long cage SVX was sold as the SVX gt and the long cage VX had multiple iterations as the VX-t, VX-s and the VX gt. Any of these would be good. Needs to have all relevant bolts (mounting bolt for earlier VX gets lost as it is unsecured when...

    Where to find replacement cones preferably with seals

    Like the title says, I'm struggling to find replacement cones for a variety of hubs, road and mountain bikes, the recurring theme being that they're all old unsealed units. I was wondering if you can get cones with rubber seals a bit like on some shimano hubs (I have a set of shimano 105sc hubs...

    3 by 7 brifters

    Looking for some cheap 3 by 7 shimano or shimano compatible brifters for a gravel bike project. They don't have to be any particular groupset level, or be pristine, they just have to work.

    Carlton fork

    Hi there, does anyone have a replacement fork for a carlton pro am. The same fork was used on the '80s Criterium as far as I'm aware, as well as possibly other raleighs. I need a 210mm steerer.
