I didn't mean to offend, and I'm not thinking of this in the context of modern bikes. I'm younger than SIS, but not all of my bikes are.

I'm genuinely interested in what specifically happens with ghost shifting. It seems like it must have something to do with cable tension changing as frame flexing, but what's not clear to me is whether that's entirely due to shifter motion, or if the fluctuations in cable tension also have a significant effect directly on the rear derailleur even when the shifter isn't yielding.
