And I'm not ever again throwing away a customer's broken part without stripping it for any good pulley, spring, or limit screw! David Feldman Feldman's Bicycle Repair Vancouver, WA
As long it's on 2 wheels new or old I still get a kick when swinging a leg over the top tube!
As for the newer stuff being lighter and working better, sure but you can't and will not be able to find parts to rebuild this stuff 30 years down the road! Gee if I drained my pocket for a $ 250.- rear mech today I sure as hell would like to have a chance to rebuild that puppy! But you can't and if so you will only be able to dig up the pulleys. On the other hand, there will be stuff to rebuild the older Campagnolo stuff 30 to 50 years down the road!............Because of dealers like Greg P. John Barron and myself, of which I have 5 Snap-on type roll-aways with top boxes full of just Campagnolo replacements! We are not talking about the little Campagnolo spare parts bins you might have seen............................If pics of proof is wanted, we will most gladly provide. Also working on the other marques as well. You know, Shimano, Suntour, Mavic and so on!
