    1990(?) F Moser Leader AX

    Brilliant! Turned out spot on. One of my all time favourite paint designs. 90's steel frames with 10 speed campag make a great combination

    Sold KARMA Deore LX FH-M565 32h rear hub GONE!

    I was karma'd this a fair while ago but haven't used it and don't need it so am passing it on. Freewheel is good, general condition is good but the bearings are crunchy. I don't have tools here to take apart and check, but judging by the good condition of the outside, the insides probably just...

    French Bottom Brackets

    I don't think there's a cut off point, I have an early 90's frame with a french BB, and also had an early TVT made Look carbon frame (also early 90's, I think) that also had a french BB. I don't think you'll find anything later than early 90's with a french BB though

    Expanding seat post!!!!!

    As said quill posts are difficult to find and expensive, you can use the BMX type with any saddle, just fit saddle to post, then fit post into frame without clamping (use tape and/or zipties to stop it sliding all the way down), find the height you need it to be set at. Remove post with saddle...

    Confounded by brake set up on a Joe Waugh

    What type are the rear dropouts? Have the front drops been filed? The fork crown looks very "thin". Have you tried different brakes?

    Internal cable routing question

    It depends on the type of internal cable... Some have a thin tube soldered inside the main tube, to take either the whole outer all the way through, or just the inner. Others are basically a hole into the frame tube, and need the outer threading all the way through. If cable end ferrules are...

    And what's the build? Thread anywhere yet? More info please - if it's anything like your fat tyre builds it will be worth following ;)

    Bar recommendation for a 1993 build

    Anything cinelli, ITM or 3TTT in a classic bend (not anatomic) would look fine. Double groove bars generally came after campag ergos came out, before then they would be single or no groove. If you're after more specific, year correct options, then start with any of those makes and check the...

    Wanted Mavic D521, 40 hole

    Yes there aren't too many about, and all the 40h hubs I can find appear to be 145mm with little option of shortening to 135. I'm not too bothered, the 36h parts that I already have will be fine I'm sure, but if I could find a 40h for the rear I'd take I just in case

    Wanted 1" steerer Sus. forks - pace, manitou, etc

    For my KHS... Must be 1" so probably something from the 90's. Pace, manitou, or similar... Even girvin would be nice :) Preferably in full working order but will consider a set that needs work if they're not trashed and the price is right. Update - can be either threaded or ahead. Will measure...
