I would love to have not only the hanger but the whole headset for one of my bikes.

Back on Track...

Funny how things work out. I put this on the back burner as I had a real deal Sauvage Lejeune coming. I could not see completing the build as originally planned as it would be pretty much duplicated by the real deal bike. So as I pondered here in the Phantom Works, I saw the tandem hanging there from the ceiling. I had bought it thinking I would get more wife together time on it. Buzzzz. Wrong answer, Hans. Wifey did not like it. She would rather set her own pace. So there it sits with its 650B wheels and Raid calipers. I had done some trial fitting of those wheels to this frame and decided against doing it. But now, why not. So this is what happens when one can't leave something alone. Shimano 105 cassette. 12-28 laced to Velocity A23 rims with 41mm Fatty Rumpkins. The Rumpkins are not long for this world. I did not care for them on the tandem and plan to replace them with something decent. Suntour Cyclone GT rear derailleur and Cyclone front. Shifting on the Shimano HG cassette is smooth. Stronglight 49D running 47/34 TA rings. Waiting on some replacement bushings for the Raids before proceeding further.
