Thinking of converting a Koga Miyata. Would need the following:
Preferably shiny silver, but if all black so be it
Rear wheel (or set maybe), will be spacing out to 130 so no 110 stuff.
Cranks and BB open to size of chainring but need to get to around 70 inches
Brake levers, yes two, internal cables.
Maybe sprocket/lock ring and chain... but not adverse to buying new
I am in North Devon but have mate in Weybridge near Heathrow
Not rushed, open to thoughts
I might be able to help with a lot of this stuff although not sure about the wheel. If you're not already sorted I can have a look through my parts box and send some pics.
That would be good please. Thanks
Righto, I'll see what I have exactly. I remember I have finger pull brake levers as well as bar end levers for bull horn bars, single speed cranks, some sprockets and chains, although some of it is pretty basic but still in good nick. Possibly also have the kind of wheel you need and remember it's a flip flop hub and not the 110 spacing, but might be a vintage wheel. Let me know what length bb axle you'll need for the chainline, although I expect you'll want quite a short length.
Hi, thank you. Bike will be drop bars. Vintage wheel good as have same (silver) 32 spoke front. Not sure on axle but I can re-arrange/buy new so as you say short for starters.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
