Triplex CS touring

Triplex CS touring derailleur main image

A typical product from the period of European decline and fall. The Triplex CS is over-weight, has an out-dated design (the geometry of the 1971 Shimano Crane), nastily finished castings and horribly unfriendly adjustment screws.

Highly undesirable.
