Desk Toys

Apologies for the cell phone photo, but wanted to share.

A Shimano 600 shift lever, gutted.

A Carmichael (I think) derailleur pulley I had on my Paramount's Shimano Deore LX rear derailleur for a while.

A bronze gear from the gearbox of my Gravely's snowblower implement.

A Rivendell head tube lug.

And the pride of my collection of desk toys -- a Suntour Superbe Tech rear derailleur. One of the most complicated derailleurs ever devised, and a colossal failure that helped open the door to Shimano's current dominance. As flawed as it is, it's very cool to hold in your hand and articulate.

All for now,
