I'd assume it either is an honest mistake, or as I've said, late in the game, perhaps after Sachs took over, it is possible the levers he shows were sold as part of the Jubilee ensemble. Either way, I think he honestly thinks these are Jubilee shifters. I'm surprised that someone on the iBOB list hasn't asked him about this. If they have, I'd be interested to hear his response. BTW, I today received a Carradice Boxy Bag from Rivendell after a lengthy backorder, and it was worth the wait. I'm a big fan of Grant's least anyone think otherwise.
