Subject: [CR]One more word on the controversial Rally Derailleur

I side solidly with those who have no great love for the thing, although I will admit I like the look of it. I have owned two and thought them both to be bits of excrement. Many more knowledgeable folks than I agree with me. However, I am well aware that many other knowledgeable folks like Rallys. I am more than a little suspicious that there was perhaps something critical in their set up that produced the favorable responses I see here. Perhaps a specific chain need? Being of miniscule mechanical ability, I readily cede that I may not have had mine set up properly. There just has to be a reason why opinion is so sharply divided among folks of good will. This is my guess...is there a better one out there?
