Wow, I asked something similar on the mechanics list a couple weeks ago and they just blew it off... probably did not want a mere cyclist knowing all the inner secrets.

My question basically was about the various transitions of the drive train since about the late 70s and the move from freewheels to cassettes and SIS and derailuers. Also the differnent types of derailuers. Was looking for a history/tech head explaination. Sheldon does cover a lot of it... but in brief, and the web is not exactly a great "read," if you know what I mean.
