General Information
The German company Sachs bought Huret a French company in 1981. They changed the name to Sachs-Huret and continued manufacturing derailleurs in the old Huret plant in France. Sachs-Huret derailleurs never had much exposure in the US market except for a few Gitane and Peugeot models. In 1990 they introduced Aris (Advanced Rider Index System). A year later in 1991 the Huret name was dropped from the product line and Sachs took a serious shot at Shimano (at least in Europe) by introducing 11 new road and MTB gruppos. This derailluer was part of a new line introduced in 1995: 7000/6000/5000/4000/3000 with 6000 being second from the top. It's a little heavy but very well made except for the cheap looking paint on the main body that was popular at that time. It should index shift well with Shimano, Suntour, Campagnolo and well as Sachs-Huret index systems.
