Hi Everyone,

I apologize for venturing close to off topic. Does anyone have a recommendation for a modern derailleur that will work with a five (or even four) speed cluster? The low gear limit screw doesn't touch when some modern derailleurs are used with 5 speed clusters. I'm building up a fifties Rochet as a user for my son, and don't want to sacrifice a period gear. Friction shifting is fine, Thanks.
