Hey folks,

a colleague of mine wants to sell his vintage Moser with Gian Robert System gearing. I never heard of this brand, is it any good?

Any info would be appreciated!

Gian Robert products were sold by Ron Kitching in the 60s, never very popular, and Campagnolo look alike ( from about 20 yards)

That's unusual, by the time Moser had pitched up Gian Robert had faded into well deserved obscurity lol. Is it a very (very) old Moser?

They were truly awful gearing - cheap & nasty with many metal parts punched out..

Not only metal parts! They also made a plastic version, probably to compete with the Simplex Prestige - but there was no competition! I had a mate who bought a GR plastic mech and all it did was bend rather than move the chain!
