Retroshift BURD Rear Derailleur

DSC_0072sq (Medium)The Retroshift CX integrated shift system has found a number of fans in cyclocross racers, gravel riders and commuters alike. Enough so that just a couple of seasons since their debut Retroshift has introduced the Blatantly Upgraded Rear Derailleur to complement their shifter offerings. The Retroshift BURD is a custom engraved Shimano-compatible Microshift rear derailleur with replacement pulleys for better shifting and fewer mud complications. Available with Shimano Ultegra pulleys for $69 or FSA ceramic bearing pulleys for $89, with a unique $34 re-build service available for each in the case of a terribly missed shift or crash that bends or breaks the derailleur body. In the gritty and demanding world of cyclocross racing or daily commuting products with a balance of performance and affordability are key — the price and re-build service of the Retroshift BURD make it a contender against the big boys.
