Refer to Disraeli Gears for a write-up on the GT - and consider too that the Simplex shift quality is actually pretty good -

Their MAIN problem with reliability has to do more with breaking pulleys than anything. I have been told that you can install some Suntour or Bullseye pulleys on your Simplex, and obviate even that issue.
