The high bidder is Japanese, of course. In fact, 3 of 4 bidders are Japanese, and this looks like a duel between two of them, with high bid going back and forth. Just the situation you want if you are a seller. Wish I had a couple of these to sell.

I am, needless to say, stunned..and the auction's not over yet.

And people laughed at me over that De Rosa frame. 'course, this derailleur is much more rare than that frame, I guess.

#1. THE PROBLEM: We have "overshot" the carrying capacity of Earth and are on the edge of "die-off" -- possibly even "die-out". Probably no more than two billion people could be sustained indefinitely.

#2. THE REASON: We (like other animals) are programmed to overshoot in the presence of "exceptional" (more than average) food, water & health care, etc. The net energy derived from fossil fuel that enabled us to produce exceptional food, water, etc. is "peaking" now.
