The Campy record carbon/titanium front derailleur is a great place to start if you want a good performing, light, and ultimately Tuneable derailleur. I’ve found a rather ugly but good functioning one for a price that’s low enough that I wont worry too much if I mess it up.

All clean and ready to be weighed. At 73.1 grams this derailleur is very light as it is but there are some rather easy modifications that’ll make it even lighter. Now its time to see what can be modified/replaced and find/make the substitutes.
