In fact. Damn your Colnagos. All of them, especially the 1972 beauty that is currently on ebay. Yes, Damn that one especially.

Also, I would like to specifically point out that I damn the ingenuity of the little clear cable housing you hid under the cable guides. You guess it. Damn you and the cable housing.

You also may remeber a little post called Ask CycleZine, where I point out how to date an NR derailleur. Well, damn that post and damn Ray for taking a better example shot of THIS 1972 CAMPY NUOVO RECORD REAR DERAILLUER. Maybe you should just write the column. Huh, yeah, I thought so.
