The front cable shifting seemed like yet one more thing to potentially mar the finish and leave a trace of my molestation. The long reach keeps me honest and the bike is ridden as a 5-speed except for the truly steep bits on my gravel road. Like getting out and turning the manual hubs on my 1965 Jeep CJ5, it's a very conscious decision and something I don't want to do all that often.
It's a bit weird but this is the only bike I've owned that has the presence and responsibility of owning a piece of history and all that might imply with regards to 'stewardship'
only when I have been up all night, otherwise not. Cannot operate a cambio corsa either.
