Lingxiang LXA-01

Lingxiang LXA-01 derailleur main image

I rather like the Lingxiang LXA-01. I appreciate the fact that it has a Chinese name (or at least it seems Chinese to me) and it has a pleasing solidness about it. The chrome is lush, the steel is thick and not too tinny and the edges are finished and do not cut you fingers. I don’t know if any of this means that it actually gives long service - but it shows that someone, somewhere cares.

Not the worst of the budget Skylark/Tourney copies.
