Lockring needed - spare parts bin help, please.ohio
Dec 6, 2001 12:58 PM
I was wondering if anyone out there has a spare lockring from an old english threaded BB. I need one to fit a track cog on a standard freewheel (I don't trust just locktite). The LBS didn't have one, but I figured someone out there has to have one lying around in their spare parts bin...

Willing to trade from my bin (and what a great bin at that) or work something out.

Anyways, my fixed conversion/build is near complete. I'll post pics once I have them, but here's the run-down, built for a total of $300 w/o pedals. Could have been done cheaper, but the frame was the perfect size, so I shelled out for it:

- Benotto 3000 Columbus SL frame/fork 52cm circa early 80s, Campy SR clone HS
- SR/sakae handlebar/stem. don't know the models but for $8 for both, who cares?
- vintage no-name Al seatpost
- Serfas Ti saddle
- Dura-Ace freewheel hubs, araya tubular rims, vittoria rally tires
- un-72 70 x 107 BB, and unidentifiable but beautiful black anodized cranks. got em for $35 from a guy who said they were Brew, but Brew never made cranks... Either way, I'll take it easy on them for a while, but they were too cheap/pretty to pass up.
- ultegra single-pivot standard reach brakes (front and rear till the fixed cog is sorted out), w/ shimano aero levers

right now it's a 42 x 15 bmx freewheel.

While I'm at it. I need a pedal recommendation. I'm using this as a commuter, so I want a recessed cleat, but I also need cornering clearance since the cranks are 170mm. Iwas thinking of using this as an excuse to buy frogs, since I'd use them for MTBiking sometimes (when I'm not using flats). But I'd like to stay cheapo if I can... are rip-off SPD (not SPD-R) road pedals worth using?
