The Blatantly Upgraded Rebranded Derailleur
BURD = Blatantly Upgraded Rebranded Derailleur!
Gevenalle started with a tough, durable no-nonsense unit from Microshift that works as well as any, but then set about making it better. Derailleur is disassembled and chain tension spring is adjusted to provide 25% more force. This provides a big advantage in keeping the chain planted on your chaining when the course gets rough or mud build up might lift another bikes chain off the chainring. Next the units are packed with good quality grease from the folks at Phil Wood and then the pulleys are replaced.
Pulleys Matter The BURD uses Shimano’s excellent Ultegra level pulleys. The result is you get a cyclocross derailleur built to the requirements of the job, not one designed for the road. Without good pulleys and the extra chain tension you can end up with more of this – View Photos of Derailleur Failures –
