Hi listers,

I've just noticed the jockey wheels on the 'patent no date' Nuovo Record rear gear that came with my Bianchi Specialissima [which is almost ready for paint.......thanks to all who offered advice] ............as only 9 teeth, instead of the normal 10 teeth, also they have no markings on them!

I do seem to remember reading somewhere that the early rear gears did have 9 teeth.....incidently mine have cracked like so many others.......though saying that, out of the 9 Nuovo Record gears I've got this is the only one with the dreaded cracks!

Anyone else come accross 9 tooth Nuovo Record jockey wheels?......or have I got missmatched ones in my gear?
