Hello Josh and List,

Sorry bout that previous message... my computer is playing tricks on me.

Anyway... I set up my 1956 Cinelli Mod B for L' Eroica with a Campag triple (36t inne r) and a 14-28t rear. A Record der was used and again it handled the gear r ange perfectly and never let me down. If you decide to use a 32t rear, you may have to move the wheel all the way back in the dropouts.

I am restoring an early 60's Masi Special and would like to have the lowest

possible low gear for my aging legs, yet remain reasonably close to the original componentry. The Campy "steel Record' rear derailleur is marked 13-36. Does this mean it could handle a freewheel up to 36 teeth (or 34, which I believe is the largest made) along with a 44-49 Record crankset? It seams like a lot for a

derailleur this size. I'll be using a Campy Record front derailleur. Thanks. Josh Berger Bronx, NY **************Plan your next getaway with AOL Travel. Check out Today's Hot 5 Travel Deals! (
