      In the 6000+ miles I've ridden thus far in 2014, you know how many times I've considered changing my saddle height?

      I have a Noah. It's a weird bike.
      Really stiff...nearly harsh at low speeds. Light the wick and it completely changes personalities.

      Here's an idea...
      Pull the BB out, clean the threads on both the shell, and the BB, re-grease everything, and re-install. Tighten it down to spec. If it still creaks, it's not the BB.

      130mm spaced rear wheels will fit. It's 2mm per side.

      I'd say build it with modern stuff, just for the dichotomy, or slowly source period stuff.
