    Brake Master Cylinder Leak

    did you try snugging the bolts a little?, maybe the po did not tighten them properly.

    CHeap way to fix your faded paint

    A cheap way would have been.... wet-sand with 2000 grit, then slather entire cruiser with a $6 can of Johnson paste wax. ;)

    front derailleur mounting question

    Mine works fine... I don't replace bike parts until they break. The one in the picture above has outlived six frames. The bike it's on is a total mishmosh Frankenstein of old parts.

    Well, that is way better than an old worn out spring. $8 is a great deal.

    front derailleur mounting question

    I've never purchased a new front derailer... they seem to last for infinity.

    front derailleur mounting question

    something must be stuck, jammed, or bent... take it off the bike and inspect it.

    front derailleur mounting question

    in the setup click link above.... look under sis adjustment there is a photo showing the removal of a "pro set alignment block" maybe that is the block stopping it from moving all the way... It doesn't say to put it back in.

    front derailleur mounting question

    I have the same lx deralier. I checked the adjustment on my shifter, if you screw the plastic fitting all the way in where the cable goes into the shifter, it won't let the shifter go to the big chain ring. Maybe bottom out all your adjustment screws... then back them out a few turns and set it...

    front derailleur mounting question

    does your thumb shifter adjust?... maybe it's adjusted to an extreme position and it won't let the derailer swing it's full course.

    front derailleur mounting question

    I see your adjustment screw way out.. on my lx, the front screw (the one you have way out) is about 2 mm higher than the other one.

    front derailleur mounting question

    I just checked the lx derailer on my office bike.. i can get it to go out to 2 3/32 of an inch (well, it hits the crank arm and stops) it could go further

    front derailleur mounting question

    is the cable attached? try it with no cable. Is your shifter in the correct position, maybe you have it advanced one position.
