hello dear list,

a question from me:

I see a regina syncro 7 speed freewheel for sale from the CR list--I would like to have as many freewheels as possible (memories of my father's beautiful old '50s polaroid land camera w/ collapseable lens that he had to finally throw away because they no longer made the film--don't want that to happen to my old 6 & 7 speed bikes because of an inevitable freewheel shortage)--ANYWAY: the question is: CAN a "synchro" freewheel work smoothly and effortlessly on a friction (mid 80's) campy athena gruppo?

my memory is that the gruppo was originally synchro--a feature I chose to ignore in favor of having what I considered to be the much cooler super record shifters. of course, as you all know, shifting never presented a problem.

sorry to go on--if anyone can help, I would appreciate it.

thanks in advance,
