microSHIFT Acolyte Rear Derailleur - 8 Speed, Medium Cage, With SpringLock Chain Retention
The heart of the Acolyte derailleur is our innovative SpringLock system. By pairing a customized linear rate high tension spring and a dual stage activation mechanism, we've developed a system that can provide substantial chain security when you need it and can be turned off when you don't.  To engage the clutch, turn the engagement bolt clockwise until it clicks. There's no way to overtighten the bolt. To disengage the clutch for wheel removal, flip the switch. It's that simple.
  • Innovative SpringLock chain retention keeps chain in place over rough terrain
  • Direct path cable routing for smooth and responsive shifting
  • Compatible with 12-42T and 12-46T 8-speed cassettes
  • Compatible with Acolyte shifters only

Customer review of this product:

StarStarStarStarStar Works bettter than my XTR derailleur ever did

by Gary S. of Pueblo West, CO
Product: microSHIFT Acolyte Rear Derailleur - 8 Speed, Medium Cage, With SpringLock Chain Retention
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Shifts flawlessly, fairly cheap way to upgrade a 25 year old bike,

Cons

Not as heavy-duty as Shimano XTR stuff, so probably won't last for 25 years, but at 68 yo, I won't either.

Other Thoughts

I bought the 8 speed shifter, derailleur, chain and rear cogs cassette and they all worked very well together. And, fairly easy to install, even with a moderate level of experience. Great bang for the buck.
