Anyone know what make this block is please and what material it's made out of? It's an ugly brown colour, 8 speed, and only weighs 155 grams. Cheers!

Might be a Marchisio Junior. They use circular cutouts like that, and the plating, which starts out shiny, can discolour to a dull brown.

I'm not sure they're as light as that though.

Re: material, have you tested with a magnet? Marchisio sprockets are steel.

Bonjour Jim. Thanks does look like the Junior (apart from smallest sprocket and lock ring which are Shimano!) I haven't tested with a magnet yet as I'm guessing it's some kind of alloy to be so light.
