Is real, is biased, and is happening. Only to anything not left of center.

I suspect the idea of what is "left of center" is quite warped, if you live in the USA.

"Center" in the USA is "extreme far right" in the rest of the world.

What is "left of center" in the USA is "moderate right" to the rest of the world; what is "extreme left" in the USA is "normal" to the rest of the world.

<and this should be in P&R.>

Like the other thread (about Chris Kvale's shop being looted), posting this kind of political claim without evidence (and in the wrong subforum) is irresponsible.

Please stop.

There are outlets and places of discussion for this kind of thing, but the C&V is not the place.

Funny! My racing bike my first year was a 15-speed Lambert with SunTour V-GT Luxe rear and SunTour something front. 13-19 FW. Bike didn't have a dropout with hanger. I took a piece of 1/4" 6061 (in high school I'd bought a 4' x 18" plate to make a lightweight centerboard for my racing sailboat; brought it home on my bike) and shaped it into a very short derailleur hanger, Shifting was superb! DId this befre I even dreamed about racing. To race, I just screwed in the Low limit to the FD.. Had better shifting than any Campy NR bike out there. Just has to watch anybody else shift to be reminded,

This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System Bike Forums Censorship. It is only a test. Had this been a real emergency censored material, this post would have been deleted instantly.

I love my Campy SR bike to death but working it over a high range (I need my 24-cog for Seattle street grades...) 7-speed freewheel is just a mess of fine tuning and overshifting, though I still need to practice it. Sure is pretty and incredibly well-constructed, though.

Best shifting bike I've had is my mountain bike with old Deore XT. The XTs before XTR came out are the best Shimano derailleurs ever made, for my money. Bulletproof, and shifts perfectly in indexed or SIS modes. Still want to try some of the flashier Suntour models like Superbe/Cyclone, though!

That's pretty cool, I wonder if anyone has ever fitted their bike with drive trains on both sides?

before I delete this thread, Jocelyn Lovell (RIP) had a 2 side drive track bike. It had a low gear for starting out and then the other side would take over.

This in a nutshell. I'm guessing the op has an issue when one side gets "moderated" more then the other. Perceived anyways

If you do post something political, just know and accept there is a chance the thread gets locked(like you did to the Kvale thread) or moved to the p&r forum.

Its quite simple, really.

Yes, for 1,000-meter races. I saw either that or a variation at a trade show in New York in the mid-'70s. As I remember, the setup (i) had the high gear sprocket backed off a few turns so that it screwed itself down to the end of the threads, at which point (ii) a hook pulled a pin out of the chain on the side with the lower gear, the idea being that (iii) the now unnecessary chain on the lower gear side would drop off the bike, thus saving precious ounces for the rest of the race.
