FWIW, I tried some Simplex retrofriction levers on a bike recently. They're smooth as butter, and work as advertised...until the screw loosens a bit. Then I started get ghost shifting. Tighten the screw, works fine, a few days later, loosens, ghost shifting.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

But I decided to switch to some new Silver microratcheting, which are the modern version of the old Sun Tours. Works like a champ, holds the shift.
If someone tells you that you have enough bicycles and you don't need any more, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.
