Rich, I have a Le Pree R. Der. that I had on a bike for a while, but it seemed clunky. I replaced it with a Cyclone, which, in my opinion, shifts much crisper. Plus, the cyclone even LOOKS crisper. I just can't figure out the point of three jockeys (or, maybe more accurately, one jockey wheel and 2 tension wheels?) The Le Pree has been in a box for more than a decade. Maybe I'll learn something from responses to your post.

Hi folks,

Looking for some info on the Suntour le Pree components. What's the benefit of the 3 jockey wheels? Where were they in the heirarchy? How do they compare to the Cyclone stuff? Thanks.
