Hello Ron,

That's the third NOS Duopar I've found locally. I don't think they have any more, but I'll sure check for you.

That said, I've had enough of eBay's fees to be treated this way as a seller (no way to plead my case to eBay), so you can be 100% rest assured that anything else I decide to sell will not go to the scum of eBay, but the good people of CR. Should have thought of that in the first place. No more eBay for me.

Incidentally, if I find another one of those Duopars - or even a Jubilee - I'll trade it straight up for a gold Simplex SLJA 103 front derailer. I need one for my Peugeot PY-10.

All the best,

-Kurt Miami Florida, USA
