WTB: Campagnolo Rally rear derailleur



Talk to a high-end bike shop that deals with Euro-Asia Imports. The
last time I was there (quite a while, I admit), EAI still had a couple
NOS Rally derailleurs on the shelf. Expect them to be expensive.
There's at least one on Ebay right now- also very expensive.

Never mind all.

I decided to take my bike gear upgrade one step at a time. I just
ordered a Shimano Megarange freewheel 13-34T. If I find that I need a
long cage derailleur then I will try again.

Thank you.

I don't think you will be pleased with the performance of this derailleur. I
had one on a Bob Jackson touring bike around 1978 and the shifting was terrible.
I may still have it but the fit of the parts is very sloppy compared to the rest
of the Campanolo line.

Can you recommend a better long cage derailleur? I'd sort of like to
stay with Campy, but it wouldn't take much to convince me otherwise.

Thanks.

Sure, Campagnolo Centaur 2004 model works pretty well. At least, some
people like i believe.

Sure, the Campagnolo Centaur derailleur works pretty well. Why not
try one of these modern wonders ?? They look a lot like the last
generation of the Campagnolo Rally / Euclid derailleurs.

I agree that a Centaur, or even Veloce, are better than that Rally. In
fact, if you're using friction shifters, any $20 Shimano rear der will work
and outperform that Rally too.
