    I've seen where a derailleur hanger has been brazed onto a dropout that did not have one, so I know it is possible. I'm sure any frame builder could do it, but don't know if the expense would be...

    Individual actions are always more important than government action. For instance, I don't support clothing made in China, so I don't buy clothing made in China. Of course, this means that I...

    Sorry - don't have time now. I'm feverishly studying up on the horrible poop-pocalyspe of the early 20th century. I guess the underfunded state schools that I attended neglected to teach this.
