interesting how that huret FD curvature doesn't match at all with the rings. never been a problem for me, but some claim it makes for poor shifting. i don't imagine you have that problem, either

...it pisses me off that SKS stopped making white fenders. When I wanted white fenders for this Follis project, I had to buy some aluminum ones that were anodized black, rough the surface, and paint them myself. Yeah, I cannot explain the cage angle on that Jubilee front mechanism, but it shifts fine that way. I ended up regrinding the flat on the front mechanism for this one, where the cage bolts on, to get a better line for the front cage.
