cage doesn't hit the spokes. Seriously, what was the point of that?


I've seen these plastic things around other stuff and used to scratch my head as to why!

All explained by 'Old Ned' :wink:

The CPSC consumer products safety commission must have drove Campy crazy with all the product mandates and resulting design changes. What on earth were they protecting with the plastic cover on the dérailleur adjusting spring/screw. The CPSC also gave use curved QR levers on hubs and brakes, wider bb spindles, lipped front derailleur cages and complications/challenges for people restoring vintage bikes. :wink: Were late production derailleurs sold in Europe w/o those covers?

Not sure how to add pictures direct :facepalm:
Will some tell me how?


Flicker has always been a bugbear with me in uploading pictures :evil:

For some strange reason I sense I have been at your house on a VCC ride last year!

I came with Paul Betts and Pete Crotty and I stood in some dog muck and dragged it into your house :oops:

Bloody gorgeous Hetchins by the way

Cheers.
Ian.

On Flickr the image location is as follows:
http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8037/8063 ... b5b3_b.jpg

You need to copy the above address from Flickr into your post and add image tags.

So it will look as follows:
[img]above%20address[/img]

If you get it sorted I'll remove my link.
