You could do that, but it's a lot of messing around and you probably won't save much money. I would think it would be a lot easier to buy a 14-32 freewheel. Then you'd have a spare as well.

Skip,
I have 2 bikes I'm running 650B wheels on (one with Mafac Racer brakes), and I use home-made "drop plates", as described on Sheldon Brown's website. In my case they are small steel plates that...

For me the CR-18 and M13-II are the rim equivalents of the Panaracer Pasela tire: they look good on vintage bikes, they perform well, and they're not expensive. My only beef with the CR-18 is that it...

Bridgestone seems to be one of those brands that gets higher prices just for the name. Usually when you get a really good deal on something like that, the best way to maximize profit is to just turn...

I think the rack is a TC (Touring Cyclist). I bought one for my Jack Taylor, since I wanted an English rack but couldn't afford a JT rack. They look cool, but supposedly sway like crazy with a heavy...

The smooth-sided rims won't hold tires on as well as hook-beaded rims, but they can still work fine. BITD that's what everybody rode. 1) Use wire-bead (non-foldable) tires, which won't stretch as...

I have no experience with the Luxe, but the other Huret derailleurs I've used have all handled a pretty wide range. I remember my short-cage Jubilee shifting a 14-32 freewheel with no problem....

Who sells deep red cable housing?

I am getting a 1974 Motobecane Grand Record frame and need some deep red brake cable housing (lined). All I have seen on Ebay and VO is light, washed-out red, which will just not do--I need a Coca...
