Friction shifting

Dust Mite helps me set up the shifter on the junk bike -- I found an 11-27 8-speed cassette in my bike mess, so I used it and switched the shifter over to friction for historical reenactment purposes.


A 52t chainring & an 11-27 cassette(111-45 gear inches) is maybe not the best choice for this neck of the woods, but the selection of 130 bcd biopace rings in my house is one 52t ring & one 42t ring (I could /buy/ a new oval ring in a far less unpleasant 46t-way, but that would involve buying something especially for this machine and that would not do well at the whole scheme of emptying out my bike mess to store random component on a bicycle) and that means I'm going to have to live with it.
