Can someone tell me why these same people are so down on ...
it's ameriKan HIP to be dumbed down on stuff >>> like some fireman, who does't know a tangelo from a tomato watching MSNBC & CNN and thinking he's a social theorist or some lab rat, who thinks he's MR WIZARD on saturday morning TV, posting links to the rash of non peer reviewed papers hypothesizing every vaccine at the end of the COVID rainbow or some white crack pot who lives in a house full of book furniture trying to convince black people that they are still slaves >>> these are examples of the latent insanity in this depersonalized world. a world that allows for anyone to be anyone and any question can have any answer.In this thread the OP asked why health care care workers would work in a high risk environment and you got pics, songs, trump dumps, VA affairs,GIFs etc etc AND at least but not last you got this explanation of derailleur failures now to the OP ...

There was an article in the NY Times, I think last Sunday, by a woman who was for many years a nurse. Now she teaches nursing in the school system. She thinks opening schools is way too soon and she is not willing to risk her life to teach someone's kids. If you are a health care worker and someone shows up in your emergency room, you do the job as best you can as there is no other real option. Teaching is a different situation in that there is a choice about opening. I suspect there will be other people leaving the teaching profession if they have the option.

...in the background of that photo, notice the lawn grass of a man who cuts and maintains his own.

In answer to the original question, my daughter the MD, just quit. Shes much happier now and her son is too. Im not sure what her future plans are. Sometimes stepping back for a while is good.

...as nearly as I can tell, it was probably made and sold in 1958 or 1959. But there were few surviving original components other than the brakes and front derailleur that were useful in dating it. The company stopped making bikes with those head tube lugs in the late 50's or early 60's, then sort of faded away for a while until revived by a granddaughter (?) of the original founder of the company in the 70's. I have no idea hos it ended up in Norther California, but it seemed like an interesting project bike.

It's not really a historically accurate restoration. I didn't want to deal with 1950's wheels, and I'm afraid to ride a french bar that old.

Oh wait, you mean the chainring combo. Smaller than that, like a 51/49 I think, to deal with the smaller geared freewheels and old pull chain derailleur it originally came with.

Much safer to stand or sit on a stool, especially after imbibing a few. (Now if that French bar was steel, you could ride it with confidence.)

So tonight lightning struck right here at home. My wife is a hospice social worker who had to visit a patient who contracted Covid after doing the PPE dance. Her clothing is quarantine for three days and then dis-infected. Car had to be Alcohol treated, and immediate shower for her after getting home.
The patient contracted it at a church gathering. Today we reached the dubious distinction of one death per minute from this disease, as the only place on the planet that can't control it. I wish my wife had stuck to doing MRDD work but she is now doing death watch for covid-19 and I am just the bystander who might get infected. It is not a fun place to be in, and we will pay a huge price for failures in paying attention to the ways to mitigate the damage. A friend from South Korea sent me two boxes of dental masks knowing that South Korea got the virus under control in a few weeks by lock down and mask usage. I think any medical worker and those who assist them will have a hard time dealing with this pandemic.
Sorry for interrupting the discussion going on about derailleurs within the thread about health professionals and Covid. MH
