I think this is the first style of Criterium that Galli produced. It has a very plain outer parallelogram plate and small adjustment screws. I have some doubts about this, however, because it has a strange outer pulley cage plate with the stop for the sprung pivot in an unusual place. The finish, particularly of the Galli logo is slightly nasty.
Overall, however, this Galli Criterium is a very viable alternative to a Campagnolo Nuovo Record. It is very light, strongly constructed and has clean lines and an welcome absence of Campagnolo’s baroque flourishes.
