Good quality , easy to fit

Posted05 November 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
Bought this to replace the very rusty one on my old (trusty) 2002 Specialized Hardrock. Was easy to fit (allthough I do recommend a good read of the instructions and def do not remove the little plastic widget that holds the derailleur open before it tells you to in the instructiuons!!!).
Once set up the bike changes gear super smoothly.

smooth changing front dearailleur

Posted26 February 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, gives quick smooth changes
I had never fitted a front deraiilleur before. It took me a few attempts to get it mounted correctly and adjusted properly. It works really well with smooth precise changes.
I found the instructions difficult to follow and lacking basic information e.g. how the cable was fitted to the changer.
