If you wanna make it work really well make sure you ditch the floating jockey and use a fixed jockey wheel at the top. Did that with my ti cassette and billet mech and now it works like shimano (except needs adjustment every few weeks to make sure the indexing is always spot on)

yep, now use an 11t on the Pauls which helped a bit, bit they are still not good.

Sniff of mud and you are into automatic shifting :D

That goldtec does look stunning though. For a 'show' style of retro ride it would be superb. Not sure I would want to take one with a Pauls on our recent retro rides though :lol:

Jez, what make is this ti one?
