Lookin good Scotty, nice front hub and pedals too! Get some canti posts brazed on, that would really do the trick. If my Iggy were not so mint I would be fixin' it up too - need to find me a beater
I agree 100%Repack Rider said:Clamp-on cantilevers would be a bad solution. They make more sense on a flat fork blade than a round one, and they would look strange. Go with one sort or another of brazed on brakes, or a drum for a total klunker look.
That is one cool bike but...ScottyMTB said:Here is my clunker project with the clamp on cantis. No, I guess they are not era correct, but they do look easy to fabricate and you can remove them and put them on a different bike.
Are you interestead in selling your NEXUS? Let me know.ScottyMTB said:Thanks. I actually have some clamp on cantis but I didn't want to mark up the frame. I put an old schwinn neck on there as well. I really do not like the Nexus system, mainly because you can't replace the shifter, so this is probably destined to become a single speed. I could go the derailleur route I guess.
