New 15 Speed!

Just got my new Shimagnolo rear 15 speed! Cogs go from 11 tooth to 12 tooth in 1/15th increments. Forged from solid helium, its very light, lighter than carbo-helios fibre. The five speed front rings give me 75 options to choose from overall.

Here ya go, this'll make you feel better...


(Just don't look too closely at the freewheel, somehow this one became an 18-speed somewhere along the way.)

I like old Centurion stuff. It was off radar in my time.
My original post was inspired by a recent trip to a local bike shop. I was not noticed as being a complete dinosaur, despite being free of all sorts of matching outfits, and some young guy tried to sell me a modern lightweight bike. Well gee, I was flattered, but still prefer my cheap classic turds that get all spiffed up. Some day people, or say average riders, will look back and wonder why they coughed up so much for a modern carbon bike or some exotic thing that hangs from the rafters.

Had to look that Sachs Orbit up. Very neat. I have been told that some folks tour internal geared hubs that shift under load. Sounds smart but heavy.

Swedish or Norwegian Trolls? Norwegian trolls are rather intelligent and resourceful. Swedish trolls have bad breath from eating too many goats and rotted herring.
