Dan Artley Parkton, Maryland Speaking of bike parts, do you happen have an old 5 or "ultra 6" speed freewheel gathering dust somewhere? I am trying to resurrect an old 10 speed, and don't have to freewheel removal tool needed to get it's freewheel off of its steel (or lead?) wheel. I am guessing that a larger freewheel won't fit in the frame. >>

Dan: Your friends request doesn't make sense. How can getting a new replacement FW solve his lack of removal tool problem? In any case, the availability of new cheap freewheels is good. Any bike shop should be able to get him a brand new Taiwan made FW 5 or 6 speed (which work just fine!) for maybe $15.00-$20.00.CDO has em! Sounds like he needs to go see Larry Black at Mt. Airy or someone similar (?)! A decent shop can remove that old FW easily too.
