help with my first ss bike

Post by duds on Fri Jul 31, 2009 10:45 am

i have a old school gt palomar which came from japan. cromo all the way even the fork. i just need suggestions for my set up here are some pics.
what i have in mind is weight weenie wheelset. decent components and SS converter for the meantime while i save up for the SRAM drive train.
my fork is threaded that's my problem. is there a converter so i can use a threadless stem? help please thanks

Bro patingin nun drop out... Very Happy


Yung fork ba nya is 1 1/8 na threaded or 1 inch lang? meron ako sa bahay 1 1/8 quill adaptor para magamitan mo ng threadless stem yan (pero gagamit ka pa din ng threaded headset)

Ganito itsura
Bigay ko na lang sayo, pero sure ako 1 1/8 yang fork mo so sakto.
cheers

looks like your dropouts are semi vertical. there's a chance you could go tensionerless! good luck! Smile

tanong lang...
sa old school frames, ano ang gamit nung 2holes sa dropout? Rolling Eyes

sa Raleigh frame ko noon kasi...
sinisingitan ko ng plastic na para tunog ringle....

@duds- im also currently restoring an old DB crmo bike. am in the process of scraping off the old paint so i can have the frame powder coated. mukhang standard naman head ng frame mo. madami pang mabibiling threaded headset. may nakita pa nga akong XT. kung gusto mo ng threadless may nakita ako mga tange saka aheadset.

bakit mo gusto gamitan ng adaptor saka threadless stem? hindi kaya mas mabigat pa yung may adaptor kesa yung standard stem na alloy? may mga nakita din akong attack racing saka control tech na old school stem. ganda!

i-bad influence kita... restore mo na lang sa retro yang GT mo! pa-powder coat mo tapos pagawa ka ng decals na katulad nung original!

dang! ganda ng gt mo bro. i,m an avid fan of gt and have been looking for a gt cromo frame for the longest time. ingit ako syo. benta mo na lang sakin hehehe Very Happy i have two gt's unfortunately both are aluminum.

try to look if you can find the magic gear para wala tensioner or use a half link. un mga old frames kasi usually sakto un chainstay length to go tensioner less.

re: the fork, yes threaded headsets are still available, try decimal in quiapo, bought one there a year ago, tange ...made in japan or you can convert the fork to a threadless one. reminder you have to cut all the threaded section of the fork and have the extension welded. un section na un kasi ang nababali sa mga converted forks.

re: the paint... just clean the frame and touch up the exposed parts with nailpolish or have a painter retouch the rusted portions or just clearcoat the whole frame with a satin finish. personally i would just leave the paint as is, just retouch the exposed parts... mas retro looking at orig... may battle scars k pa na maipagyayabang. good luck on your build. Very Happy
