Date Reviewed: February 11, 2007

Strengths:    Incredibly strong and a smooth shifter

Weaknesses:    Maybe weight if you are worried about that. I am not.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great derailleur, if you find one on ebay, get it. The company went out of business unfortunately. If I can find another I definately will buy it. A solid piece of machinery.

Date Reviewed: April 20, 2000

Strengths:    The STRONGEST changer on the market. Period!

Weaknesses:    Weakness? This thing is not weak. Perhaps not for folks resistant to change.

Bottom Line:   
Ok -- Maybe you just dont like Shimano, maybe you like to try new stuff, or maybe just maybe you're a hearty soul looking to support the small guy. Remember SRAM? Well this thing works -- GOOD. Try one, you already know that Shimano will break off in two weeks so you might as well try something new. OUT

Submitted by DH DOUG a Downhiller from california

Date Reviewed: October 25, 1999

Strengths:    
burly
it shifts well.
it is durable.
its easy on the eyes to look at,
It turns heads.


Weaknesses:    
damn loud.
the dude who invented it is kooky (I met him 2x)
It is Heavy ( for xc)
I agree with the speeds review and it should be a great rear derall. for the DH scene because it consistently survives crashes.
oh yeah, the small screws backed out due to vibration,,,,this is not good at all.


Bottom Line:   
It does shift.
it does survive incredible crashes.
it is unusually loud.
better off with Shimano.
head turner.
