Suntour in the strangest places

This Hunter Cycles cargo bike is one of the stranger entries from this year's NAHBS, but I was most surprised to see the components -- Suntour power ratchet thumb shifters and a Cyclone rear derailleur. Very funky.

Sometimes, there's just things that are around the peak of perfection - IMO, Suntour ratcheting thumb shifters are about that peak of ergonomic and performance functionality.

The MII Cyclone... a great derailleur... but I believe there are "better" for that purpose - then again, what do I know...

Why did the split derailleur cage ever go out of style? It's so convenient to be able to remove the RD without breaking the chain.
