Campagnolo Croce D'aune Rear D

Permalink  
 

Hello,

Anyone with experience with the above rear D? What is the rod adjuster for?

hi,

the "rod adjuster" you are referring to is part of the slant-parallelogram mechanism that enables the derailleur cage to move in parallel with the freewheel during shifting. Campagnolo calls it the "Twin-Axle System". you can read more about it at http://www.equusbicycle.com/bike/campagnolo/crocedaune/crocedaunebrochure%203.pdf.

incidentally, Japanese maker Suntour also incorporated a similar slant-parallelogram mechanism in their fantastic Superbe rear derailleur back in the mid-80s.

hope this helps!
