" You have to admit that it is a lot easier to keep your hands on the bars, shift right to the correct gear and lock it in. Now try that same thing with downtube friction levers. There has to be a difference. Ray Homiski Elizabeth, NJ"

Be careful Ray, you might be accused of an unintentional endorsement of Sturmey-Archer FC and AC racing hubs. "Index shifting", controls right at the same point as the brake lever... hmmm.... We need to add a 1950s RRA to this list of classic competitors then. We just need need to tell Lance not to ride off the saddle on ascents in 1st gear and he's good to go.
