Bush has convinced me that it's time to change the tires on my bike.
Some of you may recall I'm riding an old Supercycle because it was just lying around and the drive train was slipping (again) on the Raleigh GP; the crank pins were acting up again too.
Anyway, I'm thinking I could just swap the front wheel from the GP, but I need to dismount and mount the tires on the rear. Then it hit me. Why not switch the front crank and gear set from the Supercycle to the Raleigh, leave the front tire/wheel on the Raleigh, and after swapping the rear tires move the wheel with working rear gear set and now good rubber to Raleigh? (other than laziness)
Will it fit?
Supercycle (has Silstar)
Can anyone direct me to step by step instructions with diagrams ;last time I took apart a crank it wasn't pretty and I lost ball bearings
Also what rear derailer should I go with, the Shimano RS or the Huret.
Shimano ( I see I might want to clean these off a bit; my morning ride included a sandy beach)
Maybe I should have washed off the Raleigh after that ride through the swamp, but there's no hose at my apartment.
