WANTED: Decrepit Rear derailleur, 9 or 10 speed

Post by mfezela » Tue Apr 07, 2020 12:20 am

Looking for a clutch (which must work) equipped rear derailleur. Condition and brand not important, doesn't have to include jockey wheels. Going to disassemble and use as basis for non cycling related experiment.

Hi restless
I took it off my Kona Explosif 15 years ago. It worked fine then. The return spring feels tight and strong.

If you pay postage you can have it. A small donation to air ambulance would be a nice touch.

Going to disassemble and use as basis for non cycling related experiment.
I'd like to know more about this. Must be a million engineering uses for a clutch derailleur.
I'm just stepping outside ...

I'm not using the whole derailleur, just the chassis, clutch and lever arm as a damper mechanism. If it's a success I'll willingly share, until then 🤐
