DISRAELI GEARS

A riot of colour

Any colour as long as it’s not silver, black or grey. I have included the colour white here as it is sufficiently unusual in the derailleur world.

Stand-out features are:

  • The inexplicable 1960’s Japanese love of red.
  • The Italian love of bling.
  • The dare-devil mountain biker’s love of ‘take-it-to-the-limit’ bright colours.
  • The uncomfortable patriotism of those French and American scoundrels.

Now we’ve done colours, I look forward to derailleurs (deliberately) incorporating scents and sounds.
