Did I already post here? Quien sabe? Age and concussion have a way of making things new again.

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.

Nope, not in this thread. But I know what you mean. As we get older, our memory is the second thing to go.

Tom, it seems lately you've been the custodian for the monthly color threads. The other other color threads have all been new and not recycled, old threads and I didn't see a new one for October/orange, so I made a 2018 version

Oh OK. I was trying to "conserve resources" and latch onto this old one, but a new one is good, too. Thanks.

Sure, I get it. But this thread did originate in 2010. Many dead links for one, but also we'd all end up duplicating most of the thread by re-posting the same bikes. I don't suppose that's so bad in a new, dedicated thread.

October is here. Time to ride the orange.

And #mods : maybe a thread merge might be in order?

Tom,

Freewheeling it while I ride around the city making deliveries. Might(?) consider fixed this winter out on the quiet country roads. The hub is a flip flop.

~1969 Dawes Galaxy. I bought it in 1987 after it had been yard art for a while and used it as my touring bike, it's still hanging around.



Early 70's Falcon built Merckx. Bought it from the original owner around '93 and used it to upgrade with my better antiqueish components back then.
Still hanging around, too.
