I'm running a vintage SR Apex with 52, 40 and 28 chainrings. I'm using a sram 8-speed chain. The chainrings lack modern ramps and pins. However, it shifts superbly with friction downtube shifters.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
