Hey all, like my fellow Blacksburg denizen sabbot1680, just wanted to poke my head in here and let loose my barbarian yawp, so to speak.

I'm already discussing making a bike less appealing to theft and also trying to identify my thrift store bike.

Everyone's been so nice and helpful. Nice to meet you all!

Hi Hop! There's an old thread dealing with your EGS shifter:

Hey, thanks, East Hill! Now I am aware of cross chaining. Learn something every day, right? Very helpful.

The synchro shifter is a nice piece of work for the utility and poking around town I do. Just shift up or down without having to remember the positions of each derailleur. After adjusting my high and low stops so that the derailleurs no longer pulled the chain completely off the cassette, I am a very happy biker.

A friend taught me about the stops today. So far I'm having a super friendly experience with the biking community. So awesome.
