Just a quickie, I’m sure someone will know!

Can anyone tell me from which series this derailleur is from? And roughly which year?

Thanks in advance.

Looks like it's an Olympus. Could be wrong mind you, it's part of a MTB group. Early - mid 1990s I think.

I have what I thought to be an Olympus here which is all ‘graphite’ and the cage isn’t like that pictured (no campagnolo script)
Now I’m not sure which is which - could mine be a Chorus graphite with a longer cage fitted?

EDIT : I think yours is Olympus, mine is Euclid graphite.

I think that's Centaur Mat. Maybe.

Yes, I’ve just compared it closely with Centaur and Euclid mechs, and it’s indeed a ... Centaur graphite!
