Just joined your forum, 57 yrs old, live in Southern Oregon, avid cyclist until 10 years ago, trying to get back in shape and start cycling again. I have a 1991 Bridgestone RB1 that I'm preparing to get on the road again, sold my other road bikes in the last few years because I wasn't riding, had a 1983 Bruce Gordon Chinook, racing geometry full Campy Super Record, sold a mid 80's Masi Grand Criterium built in San Diego with full Campy Super Record, now just have the Bridgestone road bike and bridgestone mountain bike and a Schwinn cruiser.

Question- Bridgestone RB1 has rear verticle dropout, I have a mid 80's Mavic SSC rear derailleur {Mavic SSC 801 I think?** will that rear derailleur work with verticle rear dropout or does it have to be a parallelogram rear derailleur to work.

Thanks for any info you can provide.
