I’ve recently acquired an old Raleigh classic tourer. It’s in useable condition except for needing a new derailleur. The one fitted is a sachs huret duopar, it was bent out of shape which I’ve managed to straighten as best I can but there’s no resistance in the springs, so it’s probably easier to fit a new one. I’m not bothered what type as I’m only using the bike as a work hack. So anyone know what derailleur would work. It’s got a 5 speed cassette with triple chain set. ??

Thanks. I assume the speed rating (ie 7 speed) would be ok for the 5 speed cassette?
