Building a new Bike Part 8


Today was spent brazing on the derailleur hanger, making up the stem and steerer for the bike and testing, then finding a gear changer and a brake lever, then more testing. So now I have a bike with 14 gears. The Schlumpf works! I found a website for the Suntour V-luxe Derailleur! The gears only make horrible clunky noises in the biggest gears! The brake cables only scrape the cranks when I go round corners! In short, I have used up my quota of exclamation marks for the day, and I think I can fix the problems with the bike. All for now.
