Some work today:
  • I decided to stick with the 50t ring. To get good chainline - and so the triplizer chainring bolts wouldn't bottom out - this required the triple spacers I originally bought, plus some additional 1mm spacers.
  • In preparation for the 4-speed, I decided to add enough chain to wrap a 16t Sturmey cog in back. I'm going to change it with a 15t to get the rear wheel positioned better (if it's not just right, it rubs on the rear stay bolt - if too far forward, it's too far to the end of the drops). Apparently, I can't read. I thought it was a 16t. That thing I installed is a 19t. Oops.
  • The thickest spacers I ordered from McMaster Carr (6mm) worked perfectly to space the brake booster from the Mini-V's binder bolt.
  • The new bottom bracket isn't wide enough to clear the PAS sensor ring.
  • The Paul lever works perfectly. Absolutely perfectly. Worth every penny.
