Microshift R10 Rear Derailleur Review

Last Updated on October 1, 2022 by FAB Jim The Cyclist

Great replacement for old Shimano 10 speed derailleurs

If you have a tired old Shimano derailleur, this is a great replacement.  It even comes in silver so you can maintain the same look.  Microshift also has 8 and 9 speed options.

  1. I imagine some of this older Shimano stuff is hard to find, and those who have it are either giving it away or asking for a lot of cash. Looks like you got a good deal.
