If only I have space to keep my bikes like you guys. I used to have 7, now down to 3. :lol:


Lucky. I am down to half what I had, but still require two hands, and a foot.

Lots of your other bikes are just jealous I reckon. I am trying to keep the numbers low to make sure I am using them all (wife justification!)

I must say that the frame is great for climbing.

What cages are they? And what cranks you looking for?

The saddle and tape still looks more red than brown to me. But I guess Ill get to have a look at it on Tuesday.

Cages are GT-OEM stainless steel from LBS: cranksbikes They are light and nice looking imo.
I am planning to use this crank on my next build. So any polisheable cranks is welcome. I have chainring, so I guess I only need the crankarms, and BB too.

Picked up some old Dura Ace 7400 Crankset and RD. They are now as the same age as the frame if I am not mistaken. I will polish the crank arms while looking for suitable BB.

Question: I measured the chainset width and looks like I can run 10 speed chain on those, Am I right?

I'm running 10s on a 105 7s crank and chainrings, so you should be fine with those as well. Check out the KTM build of someone here. I believe they are using 7400 gear with 10s as well.

Did you pick those up for a good price?

Not really Quang, but they are far less than the current Dura Ace for the same weight savings :wink:

I think you can get them for about $65 at wiggle. Do you think its worth it? I heard that the 7400 RD have different cable pull, or I am probably mixing things up here.

Is indexed shifting worth it? For me - yes.

No idea re: shimano cable pull matters.

Yeah, I have to go down to 8 speed and use 7700 shifter if I want indexing using the 7402 RD, as per this thread

Yes indeed I do Rheicel, quite likely some halfway decent Biopace rings too if you're that way inclined.

PM yr mobile no and I could shoot some pics over if you like.

No I think you are right here (tho willing to be corrected). For some inane reason Shimano originally made the Dura Ace gruppo with a different pull ratio/cog gap to all their other stuff.They gave this up PDQ when they realized they couldn't change the world (at least back then :P ) and Dura Ace went to 'normal' indexing. However, my wife's ALAN has basically full Shimano Dura Ace 7400 except for the rear derailleur and gear levers which were swapped out by the previous owner because of the 'weird indexing' so I would suggest that the 7400 series rear derailleur fall into the 'weird' category.

My bad Shaun, I couldn't wait for your reply and decided to pick up the 7402 cranks from evilBay yesterday. Thanks again for the offer.

Hopefully it will do the full sweep on the 10 speed cogs using friction. They look good in my eyes tbh!
