Dale, Scott, and all,

Doesn't Scott deserve some kudos here for trying to "redeem" a modern shifting system by installing it on a classic bike?

Is there no hope for salvation (or salvage) for any components born after 1980 or that click?

As a Christian, I believe in redemption, even for the worst of "sinners"...(which is why I believe there is even hope for me... :-)

Riding "theologically impure" bikes but still believing in old steel and

hoping for redemption in Alameda, CA USA,
