Brothers and Sisters, Nuovo/Super Record is a good and even natural cutoff.... even still there was so much out there it was on bikes for some time after production halted....and then C-Rec/Croce d'Aune started.....and sits on the cusp as the end of the old era or the beginning of the new era, depending on your own perspective. In this '85-'88 or so timeframe you could still get High Flange C-Record, High Flange Chorus and High Flange Triomphe hubs. The Croce d'Aune rear derailleur as well looked back rather than forward at the future. So do we let these items languish in purgatory? Perhaps they can be lightly discussed/whispered about in terms of their ties with the past.

My $02 .....Timeframe = ENSE*

ENSE=End of Nuovo/Super record Era

* = C-Record/Croce d'Aune conversations tolerated as end of friction shifting era "on the cusp" topics.
