screw on 7 speed cassette with 32 tooth largest cog

Lookng for a 7 speed cassette to go on my tourer. I'm hoping for a 32 or 30 largest cog with a nice range going down to 12 or so on the smallest. Any suggestions?

Re: Advice on new Bike

Why not post an ad in the wanted ads section of the forum? You'll get way more bike for your buck if you have no aversion to getting a second hand bike!

Re: Shiny syndrome

Not so much siny syndrome as 'if I don't buy that I'll be regretting it for the rest of my life'. Was on a freeads site and saw an 'Eddie Merckx' racing bike for sale in Pontefract for £200. thought, well that it's likely to be a falcon model but I'll call up anyway. Surprise surprise it was a 1998 ...

Re: Campag chorus freehub problems

Thanks for that. The diagrams are great but I can't find the hubs on the document you suggested or find the section of the campag site where I can download them. Sorry to be a pain :roll: Can you suggest a place to buy OE quality bearings? These hubs should last for a hell of a long time if looked a...

I placed all the bearings in, greased neatly and then slipped the freehub body through before added the cone nad nuts to the non drive side. There seems to be a hell of a lot of wobble on there, I thought I'd used the wrong size bea...
