Lightweight Derailleur

Wednesday, December 3, 2008 by innovative_edge

Lightweight, known for their bicycle wheels, has now developed a no-holds-barred rear derailleur, that is 50g lighter than even the ever premier Campagnolo Super Record.

At $1,200, it's not cheap, but I bet it shifts supreme. I mean, look at those KCNC pulleys. I can only imagine that they are using ceramic bearings and that you would probably feel noticeably less drivetrain drag just because of that. I may be exaggerating a bit, but it is super cool.

The biggest problem with this derailleur is that it costs more than most people's bike. You would have to have one pretty posh bike in order to rock this jewel. But that's why you'd be buying this...

Pure Genius for the truly eclectic wanting to purify his/her dream bike! This truly magnificent piece of art form will only be seen on cycles of the highest magnitude in nature,i.e., the Pinarello Dogma AK61 magnesium frame, or a Top Colnago of sorts.
To be sure, whatever this fixture is attached, you will know you're witnessing glory....
