Sachs-Huret Pilot white (2900-00 H?)

Sachs-Huret Pilot white (2900-00 H) derailleur main image

The Sachs-Huret Pilot was a strange beast. It was basically a Sachs-Huret Rival (2850-00) but with an 'improved' p-pivot, an all-aluminium pulley cage and significant sideways float in both its pulley wheels. Why the tension pulley had float is anyone's guess.

This is a particularly beautiful example finished in pristine white - possibly the least practical colour that you could choose for a derailleur.
