General Information
This version has the cover on the derailleur body bridging farther forward, across the push rod; the front clamp bolts in behind the screw holding down the cover. The shifter clamp is open across the shift rod, clamping down with a bolt.

The knob on the top of the lever of the Benelux lever front derailleur had this conical shape starting in the mid-1950s. Later it was called the Mark 7 in the late 1950s.

Derailleur cage slides on a rod, operated by a lever. The cyclist guides a hand down the seat tube without looking to find the lever. Derailleur shifts readily and normal, just like a cable operated front derailleur. No cable maintenance or tensioning.
