Which came first, Weyless or Reedy? Very cool parts probably made only in the 100s and very innovative. Suntour, of course, made 1000s and 1000s of Superbe copies.

Fuji / Suntour reps avidly photographed a set of Bob Reedy pedals I had in 1974. They also photographed a set of filed and polished Suntour downtube ratchet shifters I made. A lot of shifters came to look like that!
