As derivatives (copies) of the Campagnolo Nuovo Record go, this is a good one. I like the placing of the adjustment screws and I like the chunky look. This version also has the Galli logo on the outer pulley cage plate - a pleasing touch. Strangely this derailleur is 10g heavier than my blue example.
In terms of the variables that seem to define Galli models, this example has:
- The outer parallelogram plate with the 'small dots' surrounding the logo, large adjustment screws and the cable clamp arm high up (15mm from the pivot).
- The straight pulley cage with Galli logo.
