The clouds opened up on me for a short burst. Had some minor issues shifting with the rear de-railler, won't go into the easiest gear nicely.
Will need to take a look at the adjustments today.
This retro thing is fun! Its funny, I had half the gears but I didn't miss having more. Too much choice is not always a good thing.
When do you know its the screw on the rear de-railler that need adjusting and not the cable?

The screws limit the movement on the derailleur - you set them so that the chain shifts onto that cog (the small or the large depending on the screw) without flying off it. The cable adjustment is just there to control where the lever sits and it isn't all that critical.
