Galli Criterium (3rd style)

Galli Criterium derailleur (2nd style) main image

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:

  • an Allen-key hanger bolt,
  • a B knuckle with a small reinforcing 'gusset' under the cable outer stop,
  • an outer parallelogram plate with a rounded area of 'small dots' around the logo, and a high-mounted cable clamp arm, giving a high actuation ratio,
  • a straight pulley cage with the Galli logo,
  • unbranded pulley wheels,
  • a hex head cable clamp bolt.
