one general tip for when the exact hub cone is not readily available. discovered that the curvature of the bearing surface on the shimano 600 was a pretty good "skeleton key" for many applications. it would sometimes require a small change in ball size to make everything come out correctly.

Here's my green bike on a green bridge. Perhaps C if not actually V.

I suppose this could have been posted into the non drop bar tourer thread also.

I love green and I'm 4 Fuji's, and I especially like this shade of green. My long put-off plans to turn this rusty '75 S10S into a single speed is ½ way done, but back in a holding pattern but it's getting there. Rusted chrome and oxidized aluminum that's too far gone to salvage is being painted black.

I messed up on painter's taping the head badge

I missed this thread AND St. Patrick’s Day yesterday. 😲 I’m still touring, but on the El Camino Real now, in not-so-sunny Southern California. This is a recycled pic, but only a few days old. 😉

Virus Vitus 979. Green anodized bar plugs, quick releases, bottle bolts. Biopace equipped! Always working on finding more green anodized parts. I should buy some green brake hoods and maybe a rim too.

Yep, green anodizing is pretty cool. 👍 Not sure how well you can see that one, but both water bottle cages are green anodized, and came with this bike when I bought it. 🙂

I’m halfway thinking I need a green anodized headset. 🤔

Sold my RB-T too soon for this thread but I still have a couple lying around for pix. How about green with different green fenders? Cimarron wearing Zefals.


Green with stainless fenders, the little Swiss Condor 3-speed.


And green with matching fenders; Pearl, the 23" ladies' Sports.

I thought about getting some green cages, but I hate the way alu puts marks on my bottles, so I've stuck with stainless there. I'm thinking about some green anodized chainring bolts and crank caps, but I think the originals are Teledyne or Syncros titanium, so I just don't know if I can justify it. I ordered some green anodized toe clips from a sketchy seller on Ebay, but they never came and I had to switch to ATAC-style pedals to help my knee pain. Maybe I'll buy some green anodized cable housing ferrules to make myself feel better

...Or just make my own ano bath and dye setup. The Vitus equivalent of Italianate pantographing! How hard do you think that might be!

Ha, green anodized cable housing ferrules sounds like good therapy to me. 😁✌️ Good luck on setting up your own setup. 👍

I just remembered, the nipples on my front wheel have red anodizing, but they’re faded to a light pink now. 🙄 Both hubs are XT M739, and both rims are Mavic 217 SUP, but the rear has silver nips. 🤔
