This bike went cross country mostly on the northern tier route. I lost the bags and racks and got a bob trailer and packed on around 30 lbs of gear. It was completely worry free, I micro adjusted my rear derailuar a total of half a turn and had 5 flats and trued my wheels maybe twice each and again about a half turn on one spoke nipple. oh and I had to put a touch of grease on the spindle of the non drive side of my bb to get it from making that ticking sound. It raced a alley cat in fargo and did untold miles of gravel roads, single tracks and just horrible beat up pavement.

Hey I think it's great you've fixed this nice Bob Jackson up and are riding it! Don't fret the $$. I don't think Bilenky need the work, but Kudos for supporting a first-class shop anyway. And have you priced a new 531 frame lately? 00.00 at least. Have fun!
