    Hi - old Minnesotan getting back into cycling

    Hi -

    I'm getting back into cycling after being away for a few years. Dug out all my old road stuff - the Cannondale bar bag and panniers - water bottles and pumps and my '84 Trek 620. Unfortunately the rear derailleur - a Suntour Mount-tech - no longer functions and I was going to put the original Sachs/Huret Duopar Eco back on it and I can't find the tabbed washer - anybody have any ideas of where I can find one?


    I live in Robbinsdale, Minnesota and I'm 61 years old - play a pretty decent guitar and I'm working on pedal steel. I'm thinking I may like to do a couple more tours with my Trek when I get it working.


    Thanks

    Thomas

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Welcome to Bike Forums. Stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the old timers. I'm one of them. I'm 69 -- and there are several others older than me.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
