The second photo is pretty clear; doesn't look as if it has an alternate spring locator.

On the other hand, it looks as if there may be two spring locator holes on the pulley cage. Might be worth...

Can always tow them back home with one of my bikes. That's what Shimano invented Mega Range for.

You really had me there for a second, especially since I knew I was still on BikeForums.

Oh, and I raise you a pair of SBM intake gaskets.

Howdy, all!

Thanks for the kind words Andy, and all. It's been too long, but every individual hobby of mine is a rather demanding mistress. It's either one or the other at any given time.

I just made a video of my 1971 Ford Mustang for a contest, and I'm almost a finalist!

Video is for a contest, but I put lots of love into both car and video just the same. Yep, some of us bike guys are also car guys. The horror :P

If the 11.5mm version has threads which stick out past the remover tabs, it's a 6-speed. 5-speeds have threads that end and are flush with the outer raceway/removal recesses.
