Galli Sport

Galli Sport derailleur (1st style) main image

The Galli Sport is the Galli Criterium enjoying the dubious benefits of downwards ‘range extension’. The finish is a bit less plush and, in a crucial signal to consumers of the time, the hanger bolt has a hex head rather than an allen key socket. These two changes probably halved the selling price - although how they had any substantial effect on the production cost remains something of a mystery.

The Sport was a decent product at a decent price - ideal for your training bike or for your younger sibling who was just starting out in road racing.

In terms of the variables that seem to define Galli models, this example has:

  • The outer parallelogram plate with the 'large dots' around the logo, large adjustment screws and the cable clamp arm low down (20mm from the pivot).
  • The curvaceous pulley cage.
