Kurt, I blame the mechanic (me) too. I adjusted the derailleur when I put it on the bike, so I take responsibility. I just hoped to save other C&V spokes from the

For that kind of bike, I prefer to say that it is worth bringing back to life. If you have a bike co-op nearby where you can find nice old dérailleurs and shift levers, that is your best bet.
