General Information
This derailleur was the 'professional' version of the very similar 801 model, which only differed by its clear-anodized plate (see Mavic 1984/1985 catalog).  However by the late 80's it was a bit outdated as it doesn’t have Suntour’s sloping parallelogram which was vastly superior.  It is also completely dismantleable. The Mavic 851 was part of the SSC (Special Service de Course) Group.
