I posted this on the classifieds, but since I'm looking for a trade, I think it's appropriate here as well. Apologies if you're seeing it twice.

I bought a Dura-Ace AX seatpost awhile back believing it was 27.2, but it's actually 27.0. I'm looking for either:
  • Similar Campagnolo (Record, Chorus, Athena) seatpost in 27.2
  • Dura-Ace AX in 27.2
The post will go on the frame I'm building which will otherwise be Campagnolo Chorus/Veloce/Racing T stuff (9sp), so a Campagnolo seatpost is probably more "correct." Still, the DA seatpost seems shinier in pix, so I wouldn't be sad to have a 27.2 version of it. My post has some zig zags which will hopefully be hidden by the seat tube, and one of the decals is nearly gone. The other looks fine. Here's what mine looks like. Show me yours.

ISO Weinmann 900 or 951

Interested in checking out some Weinmann 900s and/or 951s, getting into LONG reach territory!

Curious to see how the reach works for a project. Can trade 750s or 610s (have some Weinmann some Dia Compe in the bin). Open to other trades or greenbacks as needed.

All these can be very flexy, still can work ok.

Dia Compes are still available in 78mm reach for ok $$$

Thanks - Iím running Dia Compe 750s (78 max) with drop pad holders (+7) right now, not fully maxed out on the slots but canít run normal pads. Considering drop bolt/plate arrangements and/or longer reach brakes. The pad holders donít have a lot of clearance to the tire. The 951 has an extreme reach 75-95mm!! The 900 I think up to 85mm. So curiosity reigns supreme! Drop mounts shouldnít increase any sponginess but a bit less elegant in ways.

I have never seen either of the those in the flesh, would imagine very few were ever deployed here in the states, gotta be some of the rarest Wienmann's.

The 750's are way to flexy for my taste so the 9XX's would be a non starter, the huge gap aesthetically also.

Those 951s look industrially cool. Probably near unobtanium I surmise.

Yep, and I'm no expert as we all know but the geometry of the arms, yoke and all look weak in pull to my untrained eye.

Yeah, it might have been better mechanical advantage for the same design if the arms were further extended outward.

ISO: fork for yellow Bridgestone rb-1

A bit of an oddball ask, but I'm looking for just the front fork for a yellow '93 Bridgestone rb-1. My thought is that if I can find a really big one, off say a 62/63cm frame, I'll have enough length to do a threadless conversion.

I like the cable guide on this one. I'm now thinking that manufacturing the Weinmann kind of spacer (the one that goes between the calipers and the fork) with this kind of extension protruding from it could be an interesting project. Tektro does something like that, but I didn't feel quite convinced to their design.

Usually I don't like the look of additional stuff on the brake but I agree, there's something that doesn't look too bad to me. And for a frame without the cable stop it could offer up some interesting cable routing. There's the shorter reach brother (801) of this one on eBay currently if you get the itch to check it out: https://www.ebay.com/itm/29514072897...mis&media=COPY

MAFAC Cantilever Brake Part Wanted

I just acquired a first-year 1981 Specialized Stumpjumper with Mafac cantilever brakes. A part that's missing from the rear brake caliper is a straddle cable anchor pin (proper term unknown). See photos below.

This pin is a single-piece and looks like a tiny hex dumbbell with a hole through the shaft connecting the hex head ends. The hole is enlarged on the distal side to accept the head (3.73mm diam) of a straddle cable. The head on the proximal side of the shaft is just large enough for the cable to pass through. The pin shaft between the hex heads is 7.44mm long and 5.48mm in diam.

The bike came to me with the brake set up with the barrel end of a traditional brake cable being held to the "claw" of the caliper mostly by tension since the barrel was too large to fit into the caliper arm claw end opening securely.

If you have one to sell or trade, I'm your guy!

I'm 99% sure the anchors for the Mafac cantis are the same as those on Mafac Racers, which are pretty easy to come by. You can find 'em on eBay, but people seem to think they're 'rare' and ask dumb money for 'em (the anchor bit, not Racers)... If you have one of those mythical bike 'co-ops' everyone here talks about you could no doubt find one there.

Looks the same as on the ubiquitous MAFAC Racer.

Yeah looks like the Racer variety to me as well. The prices I have paid for them on E-bay was about $15 per pair.

I bought these from Old Spokes Home for $15 per pair.
I could likely be talked into parting with them. Or you can do like we did with VW throttle cable ends and use one of those to hold the cable in place. Smiles, MH

An alternative that would likely work and cost less is a cable knarp. Here's a version on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/122238831080

When I was putting centre pull brakes (Vainqueur 999) on my Grand Sprint, one of my main concerns was the front cable guide. Basically, the headset I use is Stronglight P3 (or a variant of it) with stack height of around 33mm because it's probably the lowest stack height one can find in French threading. The point of getting that one was to make sure the locknut threads on fully onto a short-ish steerer tube. I can't really go for much more than that, because the locknut might possibly have very little thread to grip onto. So putting an extra spacer in there (like the Weinmann headset cable guide one I'm using right now) makes me a bit anxious. I check the locknut before every ride and it seems to be doing alright, but I'm always a bit paranoid about it.
Tektro have a fork mount cable guide, but it would look out of place on a 70' bicycle and then it's for cantilever brakes, so probably would require some modifications to work with centrepull calipers anyway.
That model 951 or 801 gives me an idea for a custom solution: take a standard Weinmann aluminium spacer (that chunk of aluminium that goes between the calipers and the fork) or just make one, cut a spline into it on the flat side (thus making sure that anything put in there will clear the bottom cup of the headset as well as sit firmly in its position), then take a flat piece of thick steel just wide enough to go into that spline, shape it depending on what is required and add the cable adjuster on top. Looking at my bicycle now, I think the cutout for the cable anchor bolt wouldn't be necessary. I'm probably overthinking it a bit though, because the current solution seems to be working so far. And I guess grinding down a bit of the French serrated washer on its non-serrated side could be a less labour intensive approach.
Thatnks for the link anyway. The reach is probably too much for any of the frames I have (generally one requires more or less 57, 67, the other 57, 57 and one I'm working on will be eventually getting side pulls with 57, 57 reach), but the design is very interesting and uncommon.
