That's my issue. I bought the blue one and then was offered the red one and couldn't resist. Then I got a deal on an Orange custom Eisentraut that I like best of all. Hard to turn them away.

I have the correct spindle! That's one thing I DO have. As discussed elsewhere, I've decided to "Spence Wolf" three other bikes and keep this one somewhat original.

HA! There are no old parts left in Albuquerque shops. They've all been hidden aware in the barrows of ancient collectors in the foothills. I have to wait until they die and their children liquidate.

I thought it was odd. He's so thorough. But I've found other derailleurs missing now that I've stared at the site for a bit. I guess he just writes about the ones he loves and hates.
