New Transmission

New parts arrived in the post - an 11-28 cassette from the excellent Chainreactioncycles and a pair of TACX jockey wheels for my ancient STX-RC rear derailleur. The jockey wheels are better than the originals, with ball bearings (and in tasteful blue too). I decided to keep the old chainrings as they didn't look too worn and most people on the forums seem to say 'they don't wear out'.
So, new parts plus the new chain fitted, a quick fettle of the adjuster and the shifting's back to good-as-new - no mis-shifts, no jumping, nice and quiet too.
