Simplex Vallée (1st style)

Simplex Vallee (1st style) main image


This is a rather pleasant version of an early Simplex Vallée. Its features are:

  • The outer parallelogram plate is silver with a rather stylish cursive logo complete with the acute accent on the 'e'.
  • The knuckles are painted mid-grey - with normal paint.
  • The cable route goes around a plastic covered pin. There is no switchable cable route, as in later versions.
  • The pulley cage plates are finished in satin chrome.
  • The pulley wheel bolts have Torx heads
  • The cable clamp uses an hex bolt.
  • The cable adjuster is silver.

This derailleur is notably similar to the Stratec RX700.
