Installed 2X .3mm shims between cogs 5 and 6 and removed one between cogs 8 and 9. Shifting is still imprecise; may be due to cable drag. Test rode around Hearthfire and then did an easy spin to the Holcim cement plant off of Overland and back.

To Dam Hill and back. Swapped out Michelin Axial Select rear tire (which had a "thump" at high speeds) for Continental Supersport Ultra (wire bead); no more thump. Successful King of the Mountain effort on Horsetooth Dam climb, but maxed out in my smallest (39x26) gear breathing about as hard as I ever had. Going to need lower gears for climbs of this grade that are longer.

First ride on the 1984 Gitane Criterium (using Speedplay pedals), just through neighborhood and out to Douglas Rd. and back. First impressions: less road feel than Canny; friction shifters surprisingly precise and noise-free. Brakes are pretty bad compared to modern brakes. Turbo seat was comfortable.
