Old acera Vs newer altus

Postby Donski » Fri Mar 30, 2018 6:45 pm

My bike has a altus 8 speed derailleur, which I have had no problems with. Now I just got a bike with a acera 8 speed derailleur, I think it's a 2011 model bike( got for parts for another bike).
Which would be the better derailleur the 2017 altus or the 2011 acera

A derailleur is just a spring. They both work the same.

The two derailleurs are virtually identical.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.
