    My old cages have a gap for the front derailleur, and today's cages are flush and interfere. What do
    we used to jump the gap? Several washers?

    I've found some nice nylon washers of various thickness at Home Depot and Lowes. You may have to buy
    longer bolts for your cage mounting to clear the der band, so take a mounting bolt with you as a
    sample. They should have the correct bolts in stainless, if needed.

    I used a pair of presta nuts. Cheap, easy to find, and highly effective.

    Use the little screw down thing that comes on most inner tube valves...
