Wow, I think I have a small drawer full of those stops. They came in a cabinet of spare parts about 10 years ago from a bike shop that downsized. I have always wondered what they were!

Thank you. Mine is very mild so far so I hope to get quite a few more years of riding in. Exercise in general, and cycling in particular, are good for people with Parkinson's.

I'm just a little older, and when something like that happens, it's because things just aren't made as well as they used to be. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! (and it might even be true!)

I've recently seen some Shimano Allen head bolts that aren't a good fit for the wrench. That's not to say we don't lose all sorts of functionality as we age. :rolleyes:
