sante rear der. with 13/28 freewheel?Donn

Can a sante rear derailleur currently setup with a 12/21 freewheel on my 7 speed work with a 13/28 freewheel? I'd also like to change my 53/42 chainrings to a 53/39 combination. TIA for your comments.

It seems like back then most of the road derailleurs were rated for a 28 tooth big cog. You might have to turn in the "B" screw on the back of the derailleur a bit.

For what it's worth, I think that Sante' is the best looking group that Shimano ever made. It's too bad they only kept that color for a year or so.
