Does it need to be period spec? 9-speed would have started with Dura Ace I would imagine.


What it is is my touring bike its fitted with droops and I'm struggling to get my Ortlieb bar bag fitted because because the cables are getting in the way. Which year/period doesn't matter.

9 speed Dura Ace and all others were gear cable across the gap so maybe 7800 10 speed was first? I've never gone past 7700 or any 9 speed.
Campagnolo do Spinal Tap brifters, they go up to 11 ;)

Been messaged by Rob, asking me to let you know that he's died.
Or at least his computer has. He thought you might worry if he's not active (on the classifieds) and were beginning to think he'd frozen to death after spending all his winter fuel allowance on XTR.

Apparently he can't even access the site on the library's computers.....



........ after being banned for that unfortunate incident involving that 16 year old girl and the rubber gimp suit.


Anyway I'm off to the for sale section to post a whole load of cross linked ads with no price :lol:
