Having seen this in the thread....
has weak removal notches
I just went and dug out my Regina GS 13-26.......one notch is good but the other.....damn.


You would have to be very unsocial to own and mount a 13-26 back then.
I must have been a misanthrope. I started with a 13-26 and then bought a Rally derailluer so I could go bigger. lol...

If you are still looking, I have a Winner narrow 6 spd that I would give you for the cost of postage. I think it has a 13, so it may not solve your chain wrap problems.

I removed the dropout screws and pulled the wheel all the way back to avoid chain interference between jocky wheel and 28t gear.
Thanks very much for the information!

Thanks very much for the kind offer, Sluggo! It looks like I have one on the way already, but really appreciate the offer!
